Serge Normant Hair Care Products!

Posted on 03/08/2012

Serge Normant is the miracle man behind some of the leading "manes" of actresses such as Julia Roberts and Sarah Jessica Parker just to name a few and now his genius is available for the whole world through the Serge Normant Haircare collection now available at b-glowing! This finely edited group of 8 transformative haircare and styling products will leave your tresses healthy and styled to the perfection befitting any Hollywood actress. One of the standouts for me is the Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo that brings dirty hair back to life or freshly washed hair an added root lift. Dry shampoos are also great for increased volume and texture without having to do the extra step of leaving large rollers in for a period of time. This is also Julia Robert's favorite product of his, with her famously announcing it as her pick on Oprah's Favorite Things episode. With a shampoo and conditioner that is universally friendly for all hair types and a Dry Oil that gives hair the most beautiful shine and radiance, the Serge Normant haircare line is simply perfection for those who find large product ranges confusing and just want to choose from a finely edited range of the best of the best. He's got Julia Roberts as the face behind his line for goodness sake. Gotta love it.

How To Create Big Hair With Serge Normant

Posted on 05/04/2012

Pump up the volume. Go big or go home. The big tease. Bigger is better. When the majority of us attempt to do 'big' hair it can end badly with knotted hair slightly resembling a rat's nest or being caught in a hurricane. It doesn't usually resemble this gorgeous head of hair we have below. Thanks to celebrity hair stylist Serge Normant (who created this voluminous style) the steps have been easily broken down and only a few styling products are needed.

 

 

 

Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tips on wet hair.

 

 

Blow dry with a middle sized round brush, giving as much lift to the roots as possible.

 

 

Use a one inch barrel curling iron and begin curling hair section by section.

 

 

Pin each curl to the base of the head.

 

 

Once all done, use Meta Luxe Hair Spray (with a focus on the roots).

 

 

Let it set for a few minutes, unwrap, and brush through the curls. If hair looks too curly use the round brush again and soften with the blow dryer.

 

 

Tease the top where you want the volume to stay and overlap certain sections to give a looser feel to the overall look. 

 

 

If needed add Meta Revive Dry Shampoo to add texture, Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing

 Spray for Shine and Meta Luxe Hair Spray to secure.

How To Create Beach Hair With Serge Normant

Posted on 05/22/2012

The one style we constantly try to emulate but is difficult without a little seawater and sea breeze also happens to be one of Jennifer Aniston's signatures, beach hair. With the right styling products and tools, this vacation inspired hair trend isn't so complicated. One of Hollywood's leading hairstylists, Serge Normant, has broken the process down into five easy steps to achieve celebrity worthy beachiness…

 

Step 1. Pre air dry your hair in order to keep as much of your natural wave as possible.

 

Step 2. Apply Serge Normant's Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tips to give flexibility and elasticity for the stye you're about to create.

 

Step 3. Create a middle part and smooth out the top layer to reduce unnecessary frizz.

 

Step 4. Use a little Serge Normant Meta Form Sculpting Pomade to give hair some texture before using a one inch curling iron or smaller to create your curls. Beachy curls aren't perfect so in order to have an 'undone' curl, I always recommend to leave the ends straight to give a more natural touch. In other words, don't wrap the entire strand around the barrel, but leave a 1-2 inch 'tail' hanging. 

 

5. Flip your head over and scrunch up with your hands to loosen a little bit more. Then finally top it off with a little Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing Spray.

 

If you don't have a St Barth's or Miami trip planned anytime soon there's no need to worry, brush on your favorite bronzer and coral lipstick and rock your beach hair like a jetsetter!

Step 5: Brush till you see the shape you want.

Serge Normant has created a product I've been dreaming about. How many times do we not have time to wash our hair but it's kinda smelly so we douse it with a few sprays of perfume? Heck, I'm guilty of that on a few occasions but I've always wished there was some type of deodorant for hair that would cover that tell tale 'I've been to a  barbecue' smoky aroma that lasts forever. Serge Normant has come out with Avah Eau de Parfum, a sensual and exotic perfume that can be used freely all over, including your hair! 

 

Avah is a beautiful floral musk with exquisite notes of ylang yang, jasmine, amber and soft woods to create a sensual aromatic experience. Featured in Oprah magazine, this product is perfect when you need a breath of fresh hair. What's also unique to the product is it's nourishing properties of jojoba, aloe vera and vitamin E. Now there's no reason to let bar smells and barbecues force you to wash your hair, just use Avah! This is definitely something I'm getting on my next b-glowing shopping trip.

Post salon tresses only last for so long and we dread the day we realize the hair magic is gone and once again are back to our old devices and hair that never looks as good as when we left the salon. I drag that wash out as long as I can, sometimes even going a week because my hair is so thick. In the end, what has me reaching for my shampoo bottle is the smell and the dirty shine. Which is why Serge Normant's latest product, Avah Eau de Parfum, is ingenious in itself and works beautifully alongside a dry shampoo. 

 

It made the cut in Rachel Zoe's 'The Zoe Report' for it's heavenly fresh scent that stays locked into your strands for days on end. If you haven't guessed, Serge Normant's Avah is a perfume that can be used freely all over, but more specifically on your hair. Not only does it smell sensual with ylang yang, jasmine and amber but it's also a very caring product with nourishing properties of vitamin e, aloe vera, and jojoba.

There's nothing worse than a blonde gone orange six weeks after color. Instead of golden flax it starts to resemble the color of rust. For those who can't afford to get their color touched up so often it's a great idea to start incorporating hair products that will keep your hair color rich and vibrant like Serge Normant's Meta Blonde Reviving Shampoo & Conditioner.

 

Blondes or blondes and brunettes with highlights will get the best results from these products while pale or platinum blondes should shy away unless you're wanting to add a warmer tone. The shampoo contains shimmering gold enhancers to enhance gold tones and cedar bark extract to increase shine and luster. While also being a color enhancer, the conditioner is also deeply hydrating with jojoba and coconut oil. Leave the conditioner on for 1-15 minutes to increase golden color intensity.

A lot of women opt for shorter hairstyles because it's less upkeep but that doesn't mean you can't still create lots of volume and bounce to enhance movement.

Serge Normant's Meta Lush Volumizer is the perfect product for those who want to switch up a flatter, layered style and give it more body.

Serge Normant is a world class celebrity hairstylist and also happens to be Julia Roberts trusted hair man. With a gorgeous mane like that it's no doubt she's known to have one of the best heads of hair in Hollywood. Healthy hair is a rarity these days with so many of us tempted to color, spritz and straighten our hair to perfection. I definitely won't  be without my favorite Sachajuan Ocean Mist and T3 Whirl Curling Wand! Even though Julia has non stop photo shoots, premiers and parties to attend throughout the year her hair seems to always exude a healthy shine and lustre which has to be partly due to Serge's loving haircare line. 

Julia shares her beauty secrets in the Sept issue of In Style magazine and sure enough her top haircare pick is Serge Normant's Meta Lush Volumizer because, "the stuff is like a magic serum. I go crazy spraying it on my hair until my fingers get tired. Then I let my hair air-dry." It gives amazing flexibility and volume without feeling sticky or flaky!

Style How-To: Sleek Ponytail

Posted on 04/25/2013

Shop Hair here.

Sleek hair is all the rage this season, and from what we saw at Fashion Week for fall/winter, this trend is not going away. One of our favorite sleek looks, that has withstood the test of time, is a pony tail.

We love a pretty pony because it's work-appropriate, great for all textures - including fine hair - and a great way to get a second day out of your already-styled hair. Ready to rock this runway-ready revolution? Here are step-by-step instructions for this easy up-do, and the products that will get you there.

1. Prep Your Mane
You perfected your hair for work yesterday, but 24 hours later it's looking a little … sad. Use Mason Pearson's Handy Mixture Bristle & Nylon Brush to detangle and soften your locks, in preparation for your pony.

2. Tame Your Tail
Run T3's Single Pass 1" Flat Iron over your ends and address any noticeable kinks in your 'do. Don't spend too much time on this step, as the majority of your locks will be gathered and unseen. One minute tops!

3. Smooth Your Strands
Add a couple drops of Mixed Chicks Hair Silk from root to tip. This light reflecting serum not only tames fly-aways, it also gives you the added shine and vibrancy this sleek look requires.

4. Repair Your Hair
One of the things we love about a sleek pony is that is allows you to throw on a treatment or leave-in conditioner to repair hair while it's up. We recommend klorane's Leave-In with Mango Butter. It prevents further breakage and repairs without weighing hair down. Concentrate this product at the ends of your hair to keep the 'tail' of your pony streamlined.

4. Flipping Out
Flip hair upside down, brushing repeatedly from root to tip toward the floor. Make a fist, and place it against the top of your head, this is where your pony will 'sprout' from.

5. Gather the Herd
Open your fist and begin brushing your hair into it, collecting it for the hair tie. Depending on hair length, you may have to move your fist towards the nape of your neck, in order to collect all your stands in the tie.

6. Rein It In
Using the hair tie of your choice, secure your now-collected hair. You may choose to leave the tie as-is, or you can create a more polished look by wrapping a thin segment of hair from your tail around the tie and securing it with a bobby pin towards the underside of your ponytail.

7. Polish the Pony
Now that your pony is in place, you'll want to tame baby hairs and frizz. Use GLOSS Moderne High-Gloss Serum along the hairline and sides to perfect your sleek look, enhance shine and tame fly-aways.

8. Solidify Your Style
Finish off this look with a pass of your favorite hairspray. We recommend Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold and protect hair against damaging and dulling UV rays.

We hope you enjoy this styling 'how-to' from b-glowing.com!

Serge Normant Punks-Out SJP at 2013 Met Ball

Posted on 05/07/2013

Last night's punk-themed Met Ball is the talk of the town today. Rocking everything from fishnets and spikes, to studs and leather, Hollywood's A-list took punk to the next level in a variety of interpretations.

One of the top head-turning looks was, hands down, Sarah Jessica Parker. Dawning a gorgeous floral ballgown from designer Giles Deacon, Parker's dress split down the center to reveal over-the-knee plaid tartan boots. The pièce de résistance? Her hair! Styled by b-glowing.com brand Serge Normant, and topped with a mohawk headpiece from Philip Treacy, SJP was embracing the theme from head to toe.

How did Serge Normant rock-out the diva's 'do? With his own products of course!

The acclaimed hair stylist began with Meta Silk Shampoo and Meta Velour Conditioner to create a bouncy, shiny canvas. Following with Meta Lush Volumizer for flexibility, Serge reached for his Meta Sheer Finishing Oil to establish invisible hold and weightless volume. Finally, after creating the complex updo of braids and twists, Normant finished the look with Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold for the big event.
