Sunscreen for the skin, face and hair!

Have you ever worn your hair with a part and been outside in the sun all day, forgetting to apply sunscreen and ending up with a nasty burn? (Don't worry you aren't the only one!)

How about gone outside on a cloudy day thinking that it's just an hour and it won't be too much sun?

The best is when you love to drive with your sunroof open but can't figure out just why your hair color especially on the left side keeps fading. 

WELCOME to SUMMER :)

Here's a few tips and tricks for you:

To protect you hair color in the sun there's a few things:

When swimming, apply a leave in conditioner prior to jumping in the pool or ocean. Apply it and braid your hair or put it in a bun then enjoy swimming while not destroying your hair! 

Deep Condition after prolonged time in the water! Let it sink into your hair for a good 10-20 minutes for extra moisture and protection.

Utilize a color-protecting spray such as the Aveda Sun Care Spray. It's amazing at keeping your color exactly the color you started with!

For your skin there are many options to think of such as:

Loading up on a great sunscreen. Don't forget your neck and ears though!

Utilizing a tinted moisturizer with a strong SPF. Several of our stylists LOVE Aveda's Tinted moisturizers because they give a strong pigment while blocking out the sun. Great to protect you from aging, sunburns and it gives your skin an even glow!

Wearing a hat AFTER applying sunscreen everywhere!

Most importantly, remember to reapply!!

 

We hope this gives you a few tips and tricks to help you these summer months. Stay Cool!

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!

Fun, Games and Aveda FAQ

Ever wonder how we stay on top of everything that goes on at Thirty Hair?

There's a simple yet complex answer to that. Communication.

Every Saturday morning, we meet as a team for 20 minutes to discuss the week, the upcoming busy day and what's new and happening.

The first Tuesday of every month we get together for 2 hours, that's right 2 HOURS to work on what's happening, the numbers, new products, new ideas for events and services, you name it.

So today we had a fun meeting instead of just numbers and organization and we used a cool tool to play a game to learn and grow. If you are looking for a fun tool to organize a game, check out www.jeopardy.rocks for your next round of customized jeopardy!

We utilized it a little differently considering our circumstances and used it to set up our form and organize all the questions but now we can use it for any future hires to play and learn!

 

There was a lot of laughter from our teams, some fighting over the right answer and a few light bulbs went off in the learning department!

One of the best topics of learning was Aveda Facts. Did you know that Clove shampoo was one of the first products made by the founder, Horst Rechelbacher? He made it in his kitchen at first until he founded Aveda!

We also had fun debating the combined amount of children we have from our team, which Aveda shampoos are sulfate free and how many hair masks there are in the Aveda line.

All in all, congrats to our winners, Isabelle and Kara for knowing the most overall about Thirty Hair this month at staff meeting! And a special thanks to Isabelle, who made the whole team an amazing lunch to enjoy while we learned and played!
