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

A sneak peek behind doing bridal hair and makeup

Have you ever thought about all the work it takes to get a bridal party ready for the BIG day? It can be fun, stressful, chaotic, and exciting all rolled into one. There's so many emotions when planning a wedding and we love to help take some of the stress of the day. 

Our planning process for our brides include a full consultation and conceptual trial for hair and makeup prior to the wedding day. We help you plan the schedule for the morning of, help you find a headpiece/veil if you haven't yet already and give you real advice on what will and won't work with your hair and face shape but also with the theme of your day. We love to utilize secret pinterest boards with you to grow the concept of the look for the day and make sure we hit the nail on the head for your dream day. 

 

We travel to you or you can come to us. We also can work quickly on a time constraint or we can enjoy a leisurely day of hair and makeup. Our record is 5 girls hair and makeup in 1 hour and 15 minutes! We've had the pleasure of fixing a train as the bride walks down the aisle, the fun of helping hook the bracelet on and so many other special memories.

The pictures on this blog deserve a special shout out. This wedding was done back in Kansas and Sarah got to have the fun of working with Tori North of Tori North Photography for the day. Thanks Tori for sharing with us!
