A while back I had the opportunity to meet a stylist from Umberto Giannini and to ge some recommendations for use on my hair type and style. If you haven’t already you can find out more here about the event and read reviews of those products here.
Then more recently I was sent a couple more products to use during the party season. I thought I’d catch you up on how that worked out. Dear readers, I have to say this is not all good news….
I’ve tried mousse a few times but not much outside of the hair salon or at least not since the 1980s when big hair was popular but I’d had such good results from the other Umberto Giannini styling products I’d tried that I thought I would give Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Massive mousse a go.
“Rediscover the magic of mousse Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Massive mousse, we think it’s the best invisible volume you can get.”
I hardly know what to say. It certainly gave me volume but there was no shine and it wasn’t invisible. It made my hair look dull and the worst thing was how it felt. It was like I had been on a building site and had plaster and cement dust in my hair. I can’t believe that this is how it’s supposed to be. Perhaps I used it incorrectly – but I can say for certain I won’t be giving it another go. If you’d like to try then it’s available here priced £6.00.
The other product I was sent is the Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Rock ‘N’ Roll Extreme Hairspray. Obviously they sent it to me because I’m sooo rock and roll. (Well I did meet Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin back in the 70s – I can hear you saying who? and when? haha!) Anyway I tried this one out on a normal day and not to a gig and you know what it was great! It did the job, wasn’t sticky and kept my hair in place well, So I’d say that this made up for the mousse disaster. Guess we’re all allowed one mistake! Here’s where you can get your hands (and hair) on the hairspray for £6.00
Have you had any hair-raising Umberto Giannini experiences! I’d love some comments below.
