I’m not afraid to admit that every once in a while a product will land on my desk and I’ll think; how on earth do I use this. And this is definitely not a bad thing, I actually get a little excited when I have to figure out what a product is all about, like some kind of beauty detective. And this is exactly how I felt about the new Bumble and Bumble Color Sticks, a mixture of intrigue and bewilderment.
But I’m happy to report that after a little digging and a lot of testing; I’ve uncovered that the Bumble and Bumble Color Sticks are a rather nifty invention! The perfect tool for disguising unwanted greys and hiding root re-growth, the Color Sticks could be the saving grace a number of us have been looking for…
So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty! The Bumble and Bumble Color Sticks are hair touch-up sticks that help to keep your hair colour solid from root to tip. Perfect for any hair type, the unique pencil is the ideal solution for people that want a quick and easy way to keep their hair free from greys, roots and sparse areas (without constant trips to the hairdressers). Made with a mix of mineral based pigments and dry fibres, the Color Stick has a soft finish, and offers instant, mess-free coverage, which blends seamlessly into hair, with no chunks or residue – so there will nothing to give the game away!
Available in five shades: Blonde, Dark Blonde, Red, Brown and Black, the Color Sticks will blend easily with your hair colour, making them virtually undetectable! Another thing that’s worth noting about the Color Sticks is that they’re water-resistant, so there’ll be no need to worry if you get caught in the rain. But don’t panic, they will wash-out, if you’re afraid of the long-term commitment, all you’ll need is a little shampoo.
Refresh Your Roots
There’s nothing worse than being in-between trips to the hairdressers, especially when your natural hair colour is worlds apart from your colour of choice. But in times of root regrowth desperation, the Bumble and Bumble Color Stick could be just what you’re after – it’ll save you 3 hours in the hairdresser’s chair after all! Here’s what Chelsey thought…

“Blondes will know my struggle of re-growth! Even though I’m strict with my colour appointments, the 6-week wait is too long for me, so both of the blonde Color Stick shades are ideal for me to brighten and refresh my style. As I have a few shades of blonde weaved through my hair, the pointed applicator allowed me to re-create my highlights with ease – they’re perfect for any last minute events where I need to be looking my best.”
Does the perfect hairline even exist? Maybe for the likes of Kim Kardashian, but for those that don’t want the expensive up-keep of threading (and the regrowth), the Bumble and Bumble Color Sticks may be just the ticket. The Color Sticks are ideal for creating a neat hairline and filling in sparse areas that may be receding. Read Ceryn’s results…

“It was only a few weeks ago that my friend was talking to me about how self-conscious her wonky hairline made her feel. Before then, I’m not sure how I would have felt about this product, but knowing how much her hairline bothered her I was desperate to give this Color Stick a fair trial (in the hope I could recommend it to her).”
“And, I’m happy to report that it did a great job at evening out my hairline! When I pull back my hair into a tight ponytail my hair is a little sparse at the front, so this was great for building back colour near my hairline.”
Cover Up Greys
Greys! They are a certain fate for us all, but it doesn’t mean we have to take them lightly! For those of us that aren’t yet ready to welcome salt and pepper hair with open arms, the Color Sticks may be the best friend you’ve always wanted. Find out Emma’s thoughts…

“I started to get my first few grey hairs last year at 27. My mum started to go grey at 16, so I’m pleased that my hair held out as long as it could! I’d like to say that my first sprinkling of greys appeared as a few cute streaks of salt and pepper, but no – mine are wiry, metallic-looking and they like to stick up at a 90-degree angle from my hairline. Gorgeous!”
