Bea Cardenas (right): Of course we Bumble girls are all about the hair. Hairdressers will tell you to wash it less; I wash mine about once a week with Bumble Mending shampoo and conditioner. I have a hilarious styling routine—I let it air dry a little, then I create this rope with it, and let that dry overnight to give me some waves. Then I define it with a curling iron and some Spray de Mode. Four curls on each side—the key to the look is just doing those four curls, and the rest is just a really relaxed wave. And I do the ombré highlights, which are really low maintenance. I’m contemplating a lob—a long bob—for my next cut.
Julia Wideman (left): I did ombré too because I’ve never dyed my hair before and this was a little more noncommittal. I got an itch to do it, so I just went for it! Bea knows; we talked about it for weeks. My friend Maya, who has a blog called Turned Out, showed me this picture of a girl with hot pink hair and I thought, ‘That’s what I’m going to do!’ And when they bleach out the ends like this, it’s a blank slate for color. So it’s purple at this moment, but it washes out really easily, which is sort of fun because I can keep depositing any color I want.
Bea Cardenas: Her boyfriend thinks she looks like Kurt Cobain.
Julia: When I dyed my hair, I thought, ‘Kurt Cobain’, but also when I wake up it looks even shaggier.
Bea: It’s like an added accessory, her color. She started wearing monochromatic neutrals—all gray, all tan, all white—to set it off. When are you dying it again?
