New Techniques for Balayage!

Over here at Thirty Hair, we have the pleasure of taking classes with Alia from Aveda Education on a monthly basis. This past month, our class was all about dimension with new techniques. We learned a lot about how to blend our old techniques with the new ones. As a team, we tried out 4 new techniques on our mannequins and then continued grow by applying what we learned on both mannequins and real life clients. 

 

When asking for your handpainting services, know that there are many different techniques that can be used to get to your final result. Previous color services, length and condition of the hair are all huge factors when determining the best plan for your services each visit.

One question that always comes up is the cost. Most balayage services are lower-maintenance but at the time of the service they take more product and time than the average service. While you may not need to get the full service refreshed as quickly, you may need to get a glaze and conditioning treatment halfway between your balayage appointments. 

Education at Thirty Hair

We've been busy bees this spring at Thirty Hair taking trips to Alexandria, Virginia to the Aveda Southeast Education Headquarters and having the regional cutting and styling educator into the salon for an all-team cutting class! Check out some of the work we created, things we've learned and the fun we've had!

Lisa and Sarah headed off to an Advanced Academy with Bea Watson, Aveda's Globa Director of Styling. They learned a TON of unique uses for the styling products and many quick and easy ways to take the runway looks and trends into wearable hairstyles.

 

Kara went to a hands on class working with Andrea Swanson about the newest trends and ways to work with fashion colors. Did you know Aveda color can create an infinite amount of pastel colors and about every shade in the rainbow without permanently damaging your hair? Check out the lavender shadow root she did to Emmy, one of our newest stylists after attending the class.

 

Lastly, the girls all got together on their Monday off to work on their cutting skills. Hope Harris came to us for the day and our salon became an advanced academy learning core cutting with her. We each worked on 3 different cuts, perfecting body positioning, hair texture and techniques.

We had quite the fun considering it was our day off and ended with a silly group selfie... (we were so busy working we didn't stop to take pictures of our work throughout the day!)

 

If you haven't noticed, we are on the move, learning and growing for our guests! Between weekly trainings for our new hires and constant advanced educational opportunities, change and growth is key for our team. Look for more fun posts on facebook and IG as our team gets two more awesome color educational events in-salon this summer!

Blondes have more fun!

It's beginning to look and feel a lot like spring around here at Thirty Hair. 

We've been busy making lots of people ready for spring by lightening and brightening their hair color. A little known fact about Aveda is how gentle their lighteners are!

We love creating fun transformations for people's hair. Check out some of our favorite blondes of this spring!
