It may be SUPER cold outside, but the best way to warm up is a fantastic new hair color! Check out some of our most recent work including the NEW demi+ color line from Aveda which launches in February 2018! (We are super stoked to have it in the early release!!)

Do you LOVE the pictures on pinterest and instagram these days with all sorts of rainbow and unicorn colors for your hair? We do too BUT sometimes we cringe when you show us those pictures at your hair appointment.
Why, you ask? Because the reality is those colors are most definitely FASHION colors and take a lot of work to get there, a lot of maintenance to keep and most importantly, a lot of those pictures are edited before posting.
What we can tell you is that more than half our stylists have been certified by Aveda in Kinetic Color which is their version of education in the trend colors you are seeing. Aveda colors are based in nature so therefore, you may not get all the crazy neon colors utilizing Aveda but the cool part is, you will get some amazing colors while still keeping your hair healthy with their 97% naturally based color line unlike others (ahem manic panic)
So if you are looking for amazingly cool colors in your hair yet sticking true to having healthy, beautiful hair, look no further than our stylists Kara, Breann and Sarah. All three of them had a blast taking Kinetic Color this year, playing with the 1000s (yes I said THOUSANDS) of color formulations to create every shade imaginal that is in nature. (Side note, Aveda colors don't make Hot Pink or the perfect Teal. Why? You show us it in nature truly and we will figure out how to make it!)
When you want one of these colors we HIGHLY suggest sending us a snap but the basics are this:
- These Colors Take TIME. Expect your appointment to last anywhere from 2-8 hours depending on previous hair color, length of hair and current color.
- These Colors can be expensive. Why? Because we usually have to use a LOT of color to get a true saturation and traditionally we must lift your color out first before putting on the Fun Stuff
- These are fashion colors. That means they will not last forever. Expect to have a major upkeep involved when doing these colors.
Here's a few snapshots of training for our class. We love love loved our educator, Jeffrey Scott from Aveda and learned so much not just about Fashion colors BUT hair color in general!
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
