Join us on Friday, December 1 for our 2nd Annual Holiday Event!!
We've been a little busy over at Thirty Hair as everyone is wanting new beautiful Summer hair! If you are like our clients, you are itching for some change, chopping off some length or brightening up your color. Here's just a peak of what we've done in the past few weeks!
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.
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!
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!

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!
We hope you come in soon for your spring look!

Let the excitement begin...HOLIDAY IS IN!! The holidays are our favorite time of year here at Thirty Hair for many reasons, and one being the awesome products that we get to help you give as gifts!
This year we have a large selection of gifts available and we cannot wait to spread the cheer!
One of the biggest and most anticipated gift available is the "Gift of Renewal for Your Journey". This set has three of our famous hand reliefs in limited edition scents which are Beautifying, Shampure, and Rosemary Mint. It also includes a night renewal serum which is a miracle worker! This gift is perfect for anyone on your list and is guaranteed to renew the skin.
Next we have a cute gift called "A Gift to Make Her Smile" (Guys, listen up!) This gift includes two of our nourishmint rehydrating lip glazes in a Golden Lily shade and also a Holly Berry shade. Honestly, the name says it all!
"A gift of Comfort and Light" is always a favorite! It is the beloved soy wax candle in an organic ginger and ginger lily scent. It has a burn time of over 50 hours and will fill your home with the smell of the holidays. We always have one burning at our front desk so feel free to come in and smell it for yourself. On top of smelling delicious this candle's warm wax can also be used to moisturize the cuticles and hands much like our hand relief. What's not to love?!
Because the three scents of the hand relief are a limited edition there are a few sets of each that we have. First is the "Refresh-mint is a Gift for All" which includes the rosemary mint hand and body wash along with the rosemary mint scented hand relief. Next there is the "Feeling uplifted is a Gift" package that has the beautifying body moisturizer and the beautifying scented hand relief. Lastly, the "Peace is a Gift for All" set that includes the Shampure hand and body wash with the Shampure scented hand relief. Any three of these sets are going to be very sought after this season because of their limited edition.
"A Gift of Invigorating Moments" includes the scent of rosemary mint in hand relief, body lotion, and body wash. This scent is a signature one of Aveda and is extremely popular. Another gift in our collection that is a perfect fit for anyone on your gift list!
For anyone who is stressed during the holidays, which we imagine could be just about everyone, we have the "Gift to Relieve Stress for the Road". This gift box has Stress-Fix hand crème and also a Stress-Fix concentrate.
All of our gifts come pre-wrapped and ready to hand out which can save you a ton of time and effort! At Thirty Hair, we are always about making life easier, and this is sure to help! And, for the cherry on top of all of this, the paper that is used in the gift wrapping is purchased from Nepal. It has been this way for eight years and these purchases have created employment for 5,500 people (both part and full time). So, not only are you buying a gift for a loved one, you are also supporting "Gifts that care change lives in Nepal". What better way to spread Christmas Cheer than with someone in need?!
The team at Thirty Hair wishes you all happy holidays, and we look forward to seeing your faces in the salon to buy your goodies soon!
