Have you met Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry?

Bumble and bumble’s new Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry allowed me to achieve my hair goals in one product! I’m getting root lift, texture and hold with a sophisticated finish. With just my blowdryer and brush, I have a breezy yet polished style. This is huge for me, because I’ve always been challenged at a self-styled blow dry at home- away from the salon.

Bumble and bumble's Surf Family

Surf Spray, Surf Infusion, Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry

Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry provides volume and texture to give a full, sea-breezy blow dry. Beyond the major root lift, and texture, the foam has memory to help hold style. Its perfect for fine to medium hair. The entire Surf line-up is all about a wind-swept, buoyant look, but each product has its own unique use:

  1. The original and beloved Surf Spray is for fine-medium hair. Its intended for damp or dry hair and gives a windswept look with no heat styling- just air dry!
  2. For medium-coarse hair, Surf Infusion gives sea-tossed waves, with added sheen. This product is also intended for air drying.
  3. The newest member of Bumble’s surf family, Surf Foam Spray Blow Dry, is made for use with heat styling. You’ll get a bouncy but sophisticated round brush blow dry, or blow dry using only your hands for a windswept, but polished blow dry.

Surf Spray… A Bottle of Sexy Beach Hair

 

According to Bumble and bumble:

Salt water is no secret to editorial stylists for adding volume and texture, and anyone who has been in the ocean knows it too – that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel (that seems such a shame to wash out).

surf_spray_largeOur own Meridian Salon hair stylist, Andrea, recently returned from Hawaii. She said she loved the way her hair dried on the Maui beach after swimming so much that she didn’t want to wash it the next day.  Beachy waves are right at home in San Diego. From Trestles all the way to the Silver Strand, beach babes are letting their hair dry and going about the rest of their day shopping and enjoying sunny San Diego.

Bumble and bumble. has made it much easier to get the same breezy & effortless look without having to learn how to surf. Surf Spray adds body to fine hair and Bumble and bumble. points out it gives nice texture to silver hair. Here is how you’ll use it to get those beachy waves: after Prep or Tonic Lotion and before styling work through damp or dry hair, let dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser. The less you touch it, the longer it will hold.  Stop by Meridian Salon for a bottle of surf spray or you can always order online to get beach hair delivered right to your door.
