What’s hot in Manhattan – and around the world – is available right here in Princeton thanks to the on-point owner-stylists at B&B Hair Color Studio.
Tim and Kate Bricker recognized the need locally for quick shampoos and expert blowouts, and developed the Blowout Bar at B&B Hair Color Studio to prepare women for all occasions, from weddings and proms to a special night out.
“There’s a huge need for this in the area,” master stylist Tim Bricker said. “Our signature blowout covers six gorgeous styles: big and full, short and sassy, sleek and straight, bed head, Soho chic, trendsetter and updo.”
Other Blowout Bar services include the hot tools style blowout and more intricate event styles and updos, plus braids, deep conditioning treatment, express keratin and keratin.
Blowout Bar stylists are the same highly trained professionals that set B&B Hair Color Studio apart from others. Bricker has partnered with celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo (TLC’s What Not To Wear) of Arrojo Studio in lower Manhattan to help develop and train his stylists. This means staff members at Bricker’s full-service salon are among the best trained in the world.
“We hand-pick our stylists from beauty schools, and then they train here for two years,” Bricker explained. “I trained with Nick, and it’s a prerequisite for my stylists to do the same. His master stylists come here to provide that training and to help prepare my stylists to take clients. During the two years they also take classes in the city, and then finish with an intensive month long boot camp at Arrojo Studio in SoHo.”
Bricker’s credentials are stellar, as well. His work has been seen in Inspire Magazine, and he has appeared on Fox’s Ambush Makeover and TLC’s A Makeover Story. He’s a regular at New York’s Fashion Week, too. Specializing in color, Bricker did four years of platform artistry and is a master hair color specialist with L’Oreal, plus a short stint with the Redken Color Company, before venturing out on his own as an elite educator.
“We’re proud to bring this level of color, cut and styling to Princeton,” he added. “The Blowout Bar is a great addition and just what our busy and discerning clients want and need.”
The Blowout Bar currently is available Friday and Saturday from 2 p.m. to close, and appointments are required. Starting June 1, the salon will expand its hours to include the rest of the week. Learn more at www.bbcolorstudio.com or call 609-683-4455.
