Mission, Vision, Values at Thirty Hair

Ever wonder about how we keep things happy and fun at Thirty Hair? Ever walked in and seen the busy but wonder how we keep everyone straight?

As a company, we work hard to stay focused on a daily basis for our guests. Every month, we meet together to make sure we know what's happened, what challenges we've had and what successes over the past month. 

Today, we wanted to share with you a little peek into who we are and what's important to us!

As a team, our focus is to do great hair that makes people feel good in an environment that is personable and comfortable.

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!

Welcoming our First American Board Certified Haircolorist!

It's been a busy summer over at Thirty Hair including several new hires!

Today, we want to introduce Breann who officially hits our floor this week!

Breann comes to us from Florida, although she is originally from New Jersey. Her and her fiance have moved here this summer and are enjoying making new roots in Baltimore. Breann loves to hike, enjoys great sushi and loves a good pair of shoes. (I mean what girl doesn't?!)

Breann brings to us a long resume of education but the biggest one is the American Board Certification for Haircolorists. This certification includes a written test, a performance test and an effective skills in solving color challenges test. Only 70% of test takers pass.

We are excited for you to meet Breann and enjoy her color knowledge. Breann works Tuesday through Saturday. Her specialty is dimensional color and extensions.

Here's a peek at some of her work!

Summer Hair

The sun is FINALLY shining, it's getting warmer and we finally can tell it's SUMMER!

 

What better way to celebrate than with some fun new summer hair color!

Did you know there's a million ways to brighten and freshen your hair color while staying low maintenance? 

Remember these few tips for summer hair health:

* Before swimming in any water, wet your hair down completely with tap water. We suggest taking some daily hair repair or shampure conditioner and work it through your wet hair and then place your hair in a topknot or a braid. It will keep it conditioning while you are having fun in the sun and protect if from tangles, sun and water damage.

* Deep conditioning more frequently will help protect your hair from more mechanical damage and environmental damage. Summer time, we tend to flat iron more to keep our hair smoother and less frizzy and in turn, we cause more breakage issues. Using Smooth Infusion Masque or Damage Remedy Mask will help to alleviate the frizz issues and remedy split ends. 

*Clarify your hair after swimming with the right shampoo. Remember that many clarifying shampoos are not color-safe and strip your hair of your color and also strips you of all your natural oils. We highly suggest the Sun Care line for summer hair. It helps remove chlorine and mineral build up, rebalance dry scalp and keep your color safe!

*Use Sunscreen!! Remember places like tops of your ears, your part line in your hair and your neckline. Many people are already complaining of sunburns on their part especially when wearing braids which are a major trend this summer. Keep yourself protected from the sun's harm!

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!
