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. 

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!

Hair Color Changes, Pastel Hair and Olaplex...

Insight on Aveda Hair Color from one of our New Stylist's Isabelle...

Since I have finished hair school, I have played with lots of different color lines and lets just say Aveda is my favorite! I love that I can change each formula to fit everyone who sits in my chair because let's be honest we don't all have the same head of hair. That being said, I love to change my haircolor. Earlier this year I was a redhead and thanks to olaplex, within two visits, I was a blonde with no breakage! I decided I was ready for a change which turned into quite a project thanks to Sarah, who is training me on Aveda Color.

2015 is the year of pastels so of course I had to try out the trend!

Over the year, we saw so many stars rocking the pastel pinks, blues and purples. For a while now, I have been dying to have rose gold hair and haven't been able to find just the right formula in an easy fashion. I tried several brands as Aveda isn't always known for it's pastels and funky but Sarah pushed me to look outside the normal formulation box with Aveda and figure out how to break it down to make the perfect rose gold. Thanks to how Aveda formulates, with a little time and thought, you can make any of your color wishes come true if your stylist is willing to put in the effort.  

When trying to figure it out, I turned to one of Aveda's best color educator's Lupe Voss for her insight. That's the cool part about this industry, we have all these amazing artists who are willing to help others grow. So I started with research on Lupe Voss's instagram and her group chat on hairbrained. After I found what I thought were good formulas, I took real hair and tried swatches of the best two formulas I had come up with for the perfect rose gold.

 

After a few hours of research and playing, I finally found the perfect shade and couldn't be happier with the results. Here's to beautiful pastel hair with Aveda! ~ Isabelle
