Bright hair dye, even the temporary kind, is usually messy, hard to get out, and takes a long time if you want to create more than a few streaks. So we were really excited when new Kevin Murphy Color Bugs came across our desks. Instead of typical messy liquid dye, they're little pressed powders that you just rub into your hair. That way, you can put on as much or as little color as you like, from a couple of soft streaks to going super bright all over. We tried the orange and purple shades, so to see what we thought (and if it actually came out), just keep reading.
Celebrity stylist-turned entrepreneur Kevin Murphy has announced that he will be adding shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatments to his existing line of styling products — but this time he is going green. He calls this new line "skin care-inspired," ditching common ingredients such as parabens and sulfates in favor of omega 3's, amino acids, and plant extracts.
But Kevin is quick to say that he is not "too green." His line is not all natural, nor is it organic, but it combines the benefits of natural ingredients with the known effectiveness of more traditional ones, in order to create the best product possible for the customer.
His 18-product line ($22-$25) is showing up in high-scale salons already, so keep an eye out for those colorful geometric (and 100% recyclable!) bottles.
At this weekend's Hair Expo 2007 in Sydney, Australia, Kusco-Murphy creator Kevin Murphy showed off some edgy new styles. I really like how he uses different colors here to set the severe blunt-cut bangs apart from the long locks. Given it's more artful than everyday, but I love this look. What do you think?
