Bumble Color Sticks

Leyla Rudolf

Need a fast fix to hide roots and stray greys in-between salon visits? No problem, Bumble Color Sticks have got it covered.

If you’re someone who colours their hair fairly regularly but can’t make it to the salon as much as you’d like (or can afford), then you need a fast, simple solution you can use in-between appointments. Step forward Bumble Color Sticks. At first glance, you might confuse the chunky, crayon-like sticks for lip or eye shades - their handbag size and incredibly soft textures really are that user-friendly. However, it turns out that the combination of velvety formulations, encased within easy-to-apply sticks, make brilliant root refreshers. The Bumble Color Sticks literally glide through the hair, (just like a lipstick), to instantly cover stray greys, blend hair colour and disguise roots - and they’re completely water resistant - so won’t drip down onto your face when it rains. Fabled editor, Leyla Rudolf says, ‘I should have a colour refresh at my hairdressers every 12 weeks but time constraints i.e two young children and a tight budget mean that’s not always going to happen. So these are a lifesaver. I use the Dark Blonde shade when my roots are at their worst (usually when my hair’s in a ponytail or centre parting) and have even applied it to sparse areas to give the illusion of thicker, more lustrous hair. I love that you can just whizz them on in seconds - and wash out when you next shampoo. Genius.’

Bumble Color Sticks are available in five shades; Blonde, for light blonde hair, Dark Blonde, for dark blonde to light brown hair, Brown, for medium to dark brown hair, plus Red and Black.
