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!

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
