Lisa's Take on Thickening Hair

Want a quick boost for fine hair? 

Lisa, our resident fine hair stylist who loves to make hair bigger without looking like you are from texas wanted to fill everyone in on a great Aveda product for thickening hair!

At Thirty hair,  we love Aveda's Pure Abundance Hair Potion.  This powder can be sprinkled at the root to increase the diameter of each strand and create volume.  Puff the powder into your hands and transform to a texture potion to scrunch for that beachy look.  When trying to determine how much to use, tilt the bottle back and forth 2-3 times and then pour what is in your cap into your hand for maximum effect. 


Your fine hair will thank you :)


Smooth Hair? It's all yours!

Hi everyone!  Sarah Beth from the front desk, here again.  I hope everyone learned something from my Be Curly blog! 

Today I am going to be talking about another awesome Aveda product line called "Smooth Infusion".  At Thirty Hair we have been carrying this line for quite a while, but there has just been a new product added to the line! Yay!  The new product is called "Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme".  Right off the bat the name of this product caught my eye.  I mean, who doesn't want a styling creme that also nourishes your hair?!  This creme is "powered by botanicals, including certified organic cupuacu and shea butters".  It will nourish your hair and help it stay healthy while also fighting frizz in intense humidity, which lets be honest, we could all probably use some of that during these sticky summer days.  

You should apply this product to your wet hair after washing it in the shower.  All you need is a dime to nickle sized amount (depends on your length and thickness of hair-- I have a lot of hair, others may not!) that you will finger comb through your hair.  After the creme has been applied you can either let your hair air dry, or you can blow dry it.  It will keep loose waves, curly, or straight hair styles smooth and silky all day long!

Working at a salon means I get to try a lot of the product that comes through the door.  With the Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme being new, I got to take a sample home to try, and I have loved it from the first use!  I really do swear by it, and I make sure everyone knows!  So come on in to Thirty Hair and pick up a sample to try, or purchase a full sized bottle for only $26!! Its a steal with how large of a bottle it is and it saves you from using a ton of products to get your smooth hair. 

We hope to see all in the salon soon :) Stay smooth, everyone! 


Understanding Aveda's Be Curly Line

Hello to all our curly hair beauties!! It's Sarah Beth, one of Thirty Hair's Front Desk ladies with some important information on the be curly line! The be curly line for me was one that I wanted to learn about because it's so big and new things are always joining it so it was important for me to learn it!

We have a special line of Aveda products just for YOU!  Our " Be Curly " line is always a must for curly hair.  

- Be Curly Shampoo: This wash has wheat protein in it, perfect for giving your hair a healthy and gentle clean.  It is meant to tame frizz and increase shine.

- Be Curly Conditioner: like the shampoo, the conditioner also has wheat protein.  It will define your curls while also taking care of the frizz and increasing shine.

- Be Curly Co-Wash: This low-lather conditioning wash with certified organic babassu oil does three main things.

                - It will clean your scalp very gently.  Sometimes it's good to get a good clean down to the core.

                - It will moisturize your curls for up to three days. THREE! 

                - Just like all of the be curly products, it will reduce frizz which is always a good thing!

This product is for very thick and very dry hair.  It is used in place of the be curly shampoo and conditioner. 

- Be Curly Intensive Detangling Masque: This product is a rich creme that is used to moisturize curls and leave them looking better each and every time you use it!  It is suggested to be used once a week, but every head of hair is different so you can really used it as needed.  Apply it after your shampoo in the shower.  Comb it through your wet hair, leave it on for 2-5 minutes (10 if hair is very tangled) and then rinse.  It's that easy!

-  Be Curly Style-Prep:  This product is used as a booster to the Be Curly Curl Enhancer.  It also detangles your curls and protects against damage from combing or brushing.  It can also make styling your curls a lot easier while giving them a soft feel. 

- Be Curly Curl Enhancer:  This product lives up to its name! It enhances and intensifies your curls, and really locks them in for a very finished look.  It can be used daily, and you apply it to your wet hair before you style it.

- Be Curly Curl Controller: For those of you who need to tame your fun curls, this product is for you!  It controls volume, combats frizz, and lengthens even the tightest curls.  If you are looking for a more controlled style then this is what you need. 

-  Be Curly Curl Enhancing Hair Spray: This hair spray is specific to curly heads.  It has a flexible hold that intensifies curls while giving them all-day frizz control.  The flexible hold gives you the security of your hair staying in place without the flaking of crunchiness of other hairsprays.  Not to mention, it smells delicious!


Come in to our salon today to scoop up some of this awesome product! In stock we have both regular and travel sizes, so you can " Be Curly" wherever you go! (Travel sized product pictured here) We have very knowledgeable stylists that would be more than willing to answer any and all questions you may have.  You can also head to Aveda.com for more details on this line of product. 

Be curly, everyone!!


Why Aveda?

So many times people ask us, why aveda?

Well, why not?

First, their hair color is AMAZING. It is as natural as you can get while also being an incredibly flexible color line that can do everything from blend grey, condition your hair while changing the tone of it, to covering grey or creating an incredible change on your hair. It also can give you those pastel colors or granny hair that's all the rage these days.

Second, their business philosophies and what they stand for is a huge plus both as a person and as a business. Have you ever checked it out?

  

beliefs

1. we believe in treating ourselves,each other, and the planet with care and respect.

2. we believe social responsibility is our responsibility.

3. we believe ecological and profit goals are mutually achievable.

4. we believe our authenticity and experience are our points of difference.

5. we believe in inspiring and educating people to integrate wellness and beauty in their lives.

6. we believe in the power of oneness: from our global image to a focused network.

7. we believe learning never ends.

8. we believe in encouraging innovation and empowered decision-making.

9. we believe our actions, products and services should always embody excellence.

10. we believe personal and organizational balance is the key to sustainable success.

11. we believe true leadership is delivered with passion and by example.

 

That's all part of aveda. It means that there's constantly awesome education coming down the pipeline both for our stylists and our management and desk team. It means instead of always fighting against other salons in business, we can work together, much like we got to do this past winter with one of our favorite salons around, Salon Marielle in Historic Ellicott City!

It also has just about all the products you need to start and end your day. We love that you can utilize one product line for your haircare, skincare, bodycare and makeup needs. Have you ever tried their shampure candles for lotion when your hands are cracked and dry? Let me tell you about how amazing that feels! Or have you tried one of their nourish-mint lip glazes? Us ladies at Thirty Hair may just be obsessed with their pigment, the fact that they smell like mint AND they happen to be anti-aging!

So in a nutshell, that's why aveda. Their level of standard is amazing and we love being a part of the Aveda culture. Some people call it the kool-aid, but hey we aren't complaining ;)
