Try it: Kevin Murphy’s BODY BUILDER


Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a raving fan of Australian hair guru Kevin Murphy, and I’ve recommended more than a few of his products on this blog just because they’re so damn good. I was getting a cut last week from the lovely Lauren Gunn at Stephen Marr when she introduced me to Murphy’s latest styling baby, the appropriately named BODY BUILDER. It’s a mousse but not as we know it, giving sexy but smooth volume with zero “crunchiness” – the con associated with using mousse since it first hit the scene in the eighties.
BODY BUILDER is a very clever product that you can layer onto the hair to create smooth, big shapes, or just a little lift where it’s needed. Don’t be afraid to use quite a lot of it as well as it is weightless and moisturising so you can go for it without fear of crunch. The benefit of mousse is that it makes the tiny spaces between the hairs greater, so essentially it makes the hair thicker and fuller. BODY BUILDER can be used to define waves on just about any hair length, type or texture, but is particularly effective on fine hair and hair that is a little dry or damaged. Check out a podcast of how the master himself uses it to create beautiful hair here in combination with his handy TEXTURE COMB, which is also a great addition to any bathroom cabinet.
