Hair Perfume?! No Hair PUREfumes!

We all know that Aveda loves to use certain terms for their products.

It's AROMA not scent/smell.

But did you know they have a new one? It's Purefume over Perfume.

What's the difference you ask? It's very simple, their new launch of the Hair Purefumes are truly pure plant and flower aromas to spray in your hair for lasting aroma. 

Aveda’s first hair pure-fume™ line created specifically to deliver the distinctive Aveda pure flower and plant aroma with the high performance hair care benefits of softness and shine.

THINGS TO LOVE: 
• 99.9% naturally-derived
• Quick-drying formula that does not affect finished hair styles
• Can be used anytime throughout the day to refresh the hair’s aroma

We now carry 3 amazing aromas for your hair that can help you relax and feel good!

• 85% of guests agree that Aveda aromas help to alter their mood
• 91% of guests agree that Aveda aromas make them feel good

 

Who doesn't love feeling good and smelling amazing!? 

Have fried hair? This product could help

Does your hair literally crinkle and sound like it will snap when you run your brush or hands through it? Join the club! There are so many people who have the same issue-- so many in fact that Aveda decided it was time to help us fix the problem with a new product!

If you are a heat-styler, a less-frequent hair washer or you tangle easily, the new Shampure Dry Conditioner will be your new go-to product for your hair! We have found that using it helps detangle dry hair and give it some moisture without weighing the hair down. It is a heat protectant so it also is perfect for use prior using a flat iron, curling iron or wand on your hair-- even second or third day!

It is perfectly paired with the Shampure Dry Shampoo for an easy way to stretch your blowout an extra few days!

Shampure Dry Conditioner uses organic jojoba oil and sunflower oils to condition and soften your hair for ultimate shine and health. It has a 5-star rating on Aveda.com and is a staff favorite!

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!

Aveda Skincare and Makeup Event

We are a week away from our first intimate setting skincare and makeup event! On Wednesday, November 9 from 6pm to 8pm, we will be hosting 10 ladies for a special night of skincare knowledge, hands on lessons and makeup how-to's. This past Tuesday, Emmy, our amazing makeup artist, went through and taught us her five minute face with Aveda makeup. We learned a lot, asked lots of questions and had fun playing with new lipstick colors!

 

 

There are only a few spots left so call to reserve your spot before it's sold out!

Transform Your Skin

We are so excited to officially launch the new Aveda skincare Tulsara. 

On Wednesday, November 9, we will be having an exclusive event for a limited number of guests to enjoy a full skin analysis, a skincare tutorial and application, makeup color assessment and application as well as light refreshments and beverages and a free gift valued at $30. 

 

The biggest thing to know about the new Tulsara line is that it takes older tried and true philosophies from the Ayuverdic principles combined with new technology and ingredients to give your skin the best chance at stellar results. They have introduced an amazing new dry brush with an oleation oil to help you increase blood flow to your skin and exfoliate your skin daily, in turn helping your skincare penetrate deeper and better. 

After learning about the skincare lines and having a skin analysis, you will then get to utilize the products to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin to perfection. Our makeup artists will then teach you the perfect 5 minute makeup application with customized colors for your skin, hair and eyes. We will then help you apply it, giving you lots of tips and tricks!

Spaces are limited, reservations can be made by emailing sarah@thirtyhair.com We look forward to you joining us on November 9!

 

Fashion Colors in Your Hair!

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!

Fall 2016 Makeup Trends

Happy Fall Everyone!!!

Here at Thirty Hair, we are already drinking our pumpkin spice coffees, wearing our leggings and uggs on the weekends, and working hard on our fantasy football leagues. 

Just as important as those things, we are all working on new haircolors and transitioning to our fall looks. Aveda launched their fall makeup collection recently and we have it in stock! What excites us the most is that the lipstick Carmelian literally looks fantastic on EVERYONE! And we are not kidding. 4 of us all wore it one day and it was perfect! It definitely is a go to for your fall going out makeup or when you are feeling a little sassy. 

They launched a new limited edition gold liner which LASTS! Who doesn't love a little sparkle, especially around their eyes?! 

Make sure to stop by and test out the new colors. They are limited edition so they won't last long. 

New Techniques for Balayage!

Over here at Thirty Hair, we have the pleasure of taking classes with Alia from Aveda Education on a monthly basis. This past month, our class was all about dimension with new techniques. We learned a lot about how to blend our old techniques with the new ones. As a team, we tried out 4 new techniques on our mannequins and then continued grow by applying what we learned on both mannequins and real life clients. 

 

When asking for your handpainting services, know that there are many different techniques that can be used to get to your final result. Previous color services, length and condition of the hair are all huge factors when determining the best plan for your services each visit.

One question that always comes up is the cost. Most balayage services are lower-maintenance but at the time of the service they take more product and time than the average service. While you may not need to get the full service refreshed as quickly, you may need to get a glaze and conditioning treatment halfway between your balayage appointments. 

Short Hair, Don't Care

It seems that we have a flurry of activity over here at Thirty Hair lately. Between the temporary addition of Salon Marielle while they await decisions on their flood-ravaged salon, back to school and work cuts and colors and lots of new remodeling additions at our salon, the only thing that's constantly the same is all the beautiful hair we are sending out the door!

We have been seeing a lot of shorter hairstyles this summer with a lot of dimensional color either with foils or hand-painting. (for more about that different click here) Here are just a few pictures of our latest beautiful hairstyles heading out to enjoy the sunshine!!

Sunscreen for the skin, face and hair!

Have you ever worn your hair with a part and been outside in the sun all day, forgetting to apply sunscreen and ending up with a nasty burn? (Don't worry you aren't the only one!)

How about gone outside on a cloudy day thinking that it's just an hour and it won't be too much sun?

The best is when you love to drive with your sunroof open but can't figure out just why your hair color especially on the left side keeps fading. 

WELCOME to SUMMER :)

Here's a few tips and tricks for you:

To protect you hair color in the sun there's a few things:

When swimming, apply a leave in conditioner prior to jumping in the pool or ocean. Apply it and braid your hair or put it in a bun then enjoy swimming while not destroying your hair! 

Deep Condition after prolonged time in the water! Let it sink into your hair for a good 10-20 minutes for extra moisture and protection.

Utilize a color-protecting spray such as the Aveda Sun Care Spray. It's amazing at keeping your color exactly the color you started with!

For your skin there are many options to think of such as:

Loading up on a great sunscreen. Don't forget your neck and ears though!

Utilizing a tinted moisturizer with a strong SPF. Several of our stylists LOVE Aveda's Tinted moisturizers because they give a strong pigment while blocking out the sun. Great to protect you from aging, sunburns and it gives your skin an even glow!

Wearing a hat AFTER applying sunscreen everywhere!

Most importantly, remember to reapply!!

 

We hope this gives you a few tips and tricks to help you these summer months. Stay Cool!

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!
