Hair Perfume?! No Hair PUREfumes!

We all know that Aveda loves to use certain terms for their products.

It's AROMA not scent/smell.

But did you know they have a new one? It's Purefume over Perfume.

What's the difference you ask? It's very simple, their new launch of the Hair Purefumes are truly pure plant and flower aromas to spray in your hair for lasting aroma. 

Aveda’s first hair pure-fume™ line created specifically to deliver the distinctive Aveda pure flower and plant aroma with the high performance hair care benefits of softness and shine.

THINGS TO LOVE: 
• 99.9% naturally-derived
• Quick-drying formula that does not affect finished hair styles
• Can be used anytime throughout the day to refresh the hair’s aroma

We now carry 3 amazing aromas for your hair that can help you relax and feel good!

• 85% of guests agree that Aveda aromas help to alter their mood
• 91% of guests agree that Aveda aromas make them feel good

 

Who doesn't love feeling good and smelling amazing!?

New Year, New Hair!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Want to know how we kicked off the new year? Probably a lot like you all with some fun NYE parties, a lot of germs (this winter cold business is awful!) and most importantly with some New Education to kick start our year!

Today, we had Jeffrey Scott from Aveda in for a fantastic color class discussing 7 new ideas for our team. We spent our day watching and doing these new techniques, trying them all out on our mannequins!

Probably the most exciting part of the day was that each of these techniques and placements are actually wearable and do-able on everyone! This wasn't a class focused on crazy trends or things that takes hours to do or requires you come back for maintenance every 2 weeks.

A huge shout-out to Jeffrey Scott for a fantastic day! Thanks for visiting Maryland!

Take a look at some of our fun day!

Fashion Colors in Your Hair!

Do you LOVE the pictures on pinterest and instagram these days with all sorts of rainbow and unicorn colors for your hair? We do too BUT sometimes we cringe when you show us those pictures at your hair appointment.

Why, you ask? Because the reality is those colors are most definitely FASHION colors and take a lot of work to get there, a lot of maintenance to keep and most importantly, a lot of those pictures are edited before posting.

What we can tell you is that more than half our stylists have been certified by Aveda in Kinetic Color which is their version of education in the trend colors you are seeing. Aveda colors are based in nature so therefore, you may not get all the crazy neon colors utilizing Aveda but the cool part is, you will get some amazing colors while still keeping your hair healthy with their 97% naturally based color line unlike others (ahem manic panic)

So if you are looking for amazingly cool colors in your hair yet sticking true to having healthy, beautiful hair, look no further than our stylists Kara, Breann and Sarah. All three of them had a blast taking Kinetic Color this year, playing with the 1000s (yes I said THOUSANDS) of color formulations to create every shade imaginal that is in nature. (Side note, Aveda colors don't make Hot Pink or the perfect Teal. Why? You show us it in nature truly and we will figure out how to make it!)

When you want one of these colors we HIGHLY suggest sending us a snap but the basics are this:

- These Colors Take TIME. Expect your appointment to last anywhere from 2-8 hours depending on previous hair color, length of hair and current color.

- These Colors can be expensive. Why? Because we usually have to use a LOT of color to get a true saturation and traditionally we must lift your color out first before putting on the Fun Stuff

- These are fashion colors. That means they will not last forever. Expect to have a major upkeep involved when doing these colors.

Here's a few snapshots of training for our class. We love love loved our educator, Jeffrey Scott from Aveda and learned so much not just about Fashion colors BUT hair color in general!

Short Hair, Don't Care

It seems that we have a flurry of activity over here at Thirty Hair lately. Between the temporary addition of Salon Marielle while they await decisions on their flood-ravaged salon, back to school and work cuts and colors and lots of new remodeling additions at our salon, the only thing that's constantly the same is all the beautiful hair we are sending out the door!

We have been seeing a lot of shorter hairstyles this summer with a lot of dimensional color either with foils or hand-painting. (for more about that different click here) Here are just a few pictures of our latest beautiful hairstyles heading out to enjoy the sunshine!!

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!
