Salon News

Everyone here at Bambu seems to have their lives on full speed. Chris Kiss is working hard making a name for himself through hair, through some of the cosmetolgy world’s top distributors, as well as through the nightlife. Josh DeBlock is staying strong with his full book of clients and events. Carey Hinrichs seems to be working wedding after wedding and having a blast with her insane make-up skills while doing it. Kim Maxwell is learning a lot from the crew and building her client list while being a stylist alongside Carey at many of Bambu’s events. Through all this, they all still have time to see their loyal client base while making new ones. The work life of a stylist is hard, but the fun never ends when you love what you do, like they do.

We have had many updates about Cotê lately, and I am hoping you all know what it by now. I want to take a moment to talk about our other products you love, Onesta. Here is something new.

 

Onesta says it best, “Onesta Refresh Dry Shampoo uses a natural tapioca starch to absorb excess oil and buildup. Our lightweight formula leaves hair refreshed while adding body and texture. Onesta’s powerful blend of certified organic Milk Thistle, Green Tea, and Rhatany Root helps protect hair color and vitality.”

  • ideal for all hair types and colors
    uses a natural tapioca and rice starch to absorb excess oil and buildup
    adds body and texture to hair
    fortified with Collagen Amino Acids and Biotin to naturally boost healthy hair
    natural Lemongrass Coconut fragrance leaves hair smelling fresh

We still carry all of our other and loved hair care and style products by Onesta.

Take a moment to check in with your favorite stylist once in a while, whether you’re booking an appointment or not. They love it when you do.

Until next time!

Progress

Since our birth, Bambu has been creating a safer, cleaner environment inside and outside of the salon by practicing Eco friendly business styles such as recycling and using non-harmful, animal-safe products. Another, less conventional way, has been through the use of phytoremediation (PR).

“Phytoremediation is the direct use of living green plants for in situ, or in place, removal, degradation, or containment of contaminants in soils, sludges, sediments, surface water and groundwater. Phytoremediation is: A low cost, solar energy driven cleanup technique.”

Read about it here: http://www.unep.or.jp/Ietc/Publications/Freshwater/FMS2/1.asp

For the past year (or longer) the people of Bambu have been doing what they can, talking to and contacting who they can, to begin a study of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Too many VOCs in your environment can be harmful. By using PR we have reduced the VOCs in our salon which may be created through using hair colors, bleaches, or hairsprays.

We know this is true, but we want the world to know this is true. That is why we have contacted USF in an effort to begin an official VOC here in our salon. Today, we made progress. A phone call. Someone to listen to our ideas. It’s a great step forward from the battle for validation we have been in.

As always, we are excited for the future and we will keep you updated with our future ventures.

Best! -Bambu
