I was recently in NY with the salon I work for, Roots
, for IBS
(International Beauty Show). I took the extra time I had to wander around between Brooklyn and Manhattan, try on lots of clothes that are way out of my budget, eat lots of delicious food, visit friends and meet up with a few designers here and there for The Pinpoint Method.
When I wasn't on my own watch, I was going on salon related adventures like touring the Bumble & bumble University
. It was AMAZING! As soon as the elevator doors opened, I was in ultra tourist mode just snapping photos. Their branding is brilliant and carried throughout the Bumble building
beautifully. If you are ever in New York and are a business owner, future business owner, creative, or just someone who appreciates art/design, you must tour Bumble & bumble. You will leave inspired.
Here a tiny peek...

|The Color Room|
|The Cutting Room|
Not shown, but they do have a private room for the rich and famous. Also, they had TVs above the shampoo bowls playing styling instructional videos. Smart.
|I love the little touches of handwriting throughout the building|
