When you visit us at Chicago Hair Salon, we use top quality products on your hair. Our clients can choose to take home something we recommend for them, or not. We genuinely want you to use shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids that truly meet your needs. And while we understand that there are many options for purchasing your hair care products, we ask that you but them from us. Here’s why:
Our products are Bumble and Bumble, a legendary line from New York City that we’re so happy to offer clients at our Boulder salon. Bumble and Bumble offers fantastic ongoing education for stylists, and many of us at Chicago Hair have traveled to Bumble and Bumble headquarters in New York for classes. We’ve worked with Bumble and Bumble for years, and we know it’s one of the best product lines available. When you visit us at Chicago Hair, we will recommend the perfect products specifically for you. We recommend products that will protect your hair color, which extends time between services, and keeps your hair healthy. This is so important for our guests who color their hair. Furthermore, our recommendations are based on not only your needs, but your preferences as well. Also, we know these products thoroughly, and our guests benefit from our experience with them. No more staring at a giant display of dozens of options and wondering where to start.
We know that you can purchase your hair products online, at big box stores, or at specialty cosmetics stores. And we love shopping at all of them ourselves! But, buying Bumble and Bumble, or other salon quality products from big box stores and online vendors is risky. That’s because of a crooked business practice called diversion. When salon products are diverted, a middle man procures them, and then resells them to an unauthorized vendor. The problem is that because these products are not obtained through proper channels, their quality can be compromised. I once saw a Bumble and Bumble shampoo for sale at the grocery store that had been discontinued at least five years prior! Hair products do have a lifespan, and a shampoo that old is definitely past its expiration date.
Finally, when you buy products at Chicago Hair, you support a local business. We have years of experience with our community and our craft, and we make recommendations based on each client’s needs. We are much more interested in building a relationship and making a sale, and we think that it shows.
