If you have long hair and you’ve been wearing the top knot, we have 3 alternatives to keep you ahead of the hair game. After watching most the shows at New York Fashion Week, I was most inspired by the Anna Sui show with the “Minnie-Mouse” buns. It showcased a half up-half down, cute yet edgy style. Longing to recreate this look in a shoot with our newly launched R+Co products, I’m blown away by what I find in my inbox a week later. Low and behold, it’s an email from R+Co describing Garren’s look for the Anna Sui Show...
We're not always in the studio on Tuesdays, but we're always working on elevating the craft of hairdressing. Christopher Triana joined the collective back in 2016 where he brings the art of barbering to the studio. When he's not at the studio, he's teaching the barbering program at the Bellus Academy, as well as bringing his students to us.

This is a great tutorial for seasoned hairstylists and also a great video for curly hair clients that are seeking something new.
Most people with curly hair can identify with how much longer it takes to grow out, how much harder it is to maintain...

Surrounded by art. Street, hair, comedy, performance. They are all art forms in my eyes and I loved that lbp front row gave us the full immersion. My inspiration came from many moments so to narrow it down almost seems unfair. The “moment” that caught my attention was a line drawing by Adrian Avila in the artist gallery. As crafty as I am, my drawings, head sheets etc. always look like they came from a 5-year-old, so I hold a lot of admiration for this particular art...
