12 Days of Aveda

Image
This time of year is filled with holiday themed music, and one of the songs you’re most likely to hear in some way or form is the “12 Days of Christmas.” You know, the one that lists all the presents some lady is getting for 12 days of Christmas. Well, that song was the inspiration behind this blog post, because we decided to take that popular tune and turn it into the 12 Days of Aveda, featuring Aveda’s special gift packages for the holiday season.




On the first day of Aveda, my true love gave to me “A Gift of Rosemary Mint.” This gift set features three rosemary mint products: shampoo, conditioner, and hand/body wash. Each one contains the scent of organic rosemary, peppermint, and other flower and plant essences. 








On the second day of Aveda, my true love gave to me “A Gift of Shampure.” With Shampure’s hand/body wash, body lotion, and moisturizing crème, you’ll be able to give (or receive) the gift that calms the senses. The combination of 25 flower and plant essences like lavender a…

Fall/Winter Fashion Must-Haves

Image
November is here, which means autumn is in full swing, but it also means that winter will be here before we know it. As the leaves fully fall from the trees and the snow begins to leave the ground covered in a white blanket, it’s time to stock up on these fall/winter clothing essentials.

Sweaters
Sweaters are the staple of every fall/winter wardrobe and while almost everyone owns at least one of these clothing items, there are so many different kinds of sweaters to choose from (and it doesn’t hurt to own one of each so you can always mix it up).
Turtlenecks: This sweater style may have been popular in the 90’s, but that doesn’t mean it’s out of style now. On the contrary, turtleneck sweaters are a popular winter staple even in 2018. Not only are there so many ways to wear them, they are perfect for a variety of occasions: from work, to causal wear, or those holiday parties you’ll be invited to.

Balayage, Ombre, Oh My!

Image
So, you want to color your hair and came across two styles that appear quite similar: the balayage and the ombre. Well to some these words may sound foreign, and to others maybe you’ve heard of them but aren’t sure what they each are. Now before you run to your hair stylist randomly choosing one of these styles, we have some basic information for you about each.
Balayage:
First and foremost, a balayage isn’t only the style in which your hair is dyed, but is more so a technique your stylist will use to dye the hair. In French, balayage means “sweeping,” which describes the way the hair dye is applied. It is freehandedly painted on to blend the new color with the old.
With the normal way of highlighting hair, typically with foils, the highlights can begin to look separate from the natural color as your roots grow in. The balayage technique can help avoid those pesky roots from ruining your perfect color. This is because the application of this technique is very different to ensure your n…

Hair Products:
