We Do a Lot More Than Just Hair

Once in a while clients will come in and are surprised to find out all that we have to offer other than our great hair salon services. Let me enlighten you in case you are in the dark as well!

We are a full service day spa as well as a salon. That means that you can not only get your hair done, you can literally spend hours here getting pampered from head to toe! For your nails we offer a wide variety of    services from express manicures, to shellac, to spa pedicures. We also have three amazing massage therapists that can soothe your aching muscles with Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, or pre-natal massage. Don’t let me forget about our couples massage, complete with champagne (or other beverage of choice if you’d prefer something else) and chocolate covered strawberries. 

Now let me introduce you to Kendra, she is our aesthetician extraordinaire and can take your skin from sallow to stunning with both Aveda facials and treatments and also from Image Skincare’s pharmaceutical grade peels and treatments. She is also multi-certified in Xtreme Eyelash Lash extensions, which are semi permanent extensions for your eyelashes, think no mascara or falsies ever again! We offer full body waxing as well. Call now to schedule a day of pampering with us, you will not leave disappointed!

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Aveda

5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT AVEDA 

You see Aveda in your shower every day. You keep Hand Relief on your desk at work. You visit with your Aveda artist several times a year at your cut or color appointments. We’re part of your life, and we like it that way!

However, there are probably a few things you DIDN’T know about your favorite brand (that’d be us), so we’re sharing five of our favorite facts with you.

 

1. Our HQ is located in Minnesota, just a few miles from Minneapolis. How’d we end up here? Our founder, Horst Rechelbacher, was in a car accident while visiting Minneapolis and decided to settle here. He was a hairdresser and set up a salon here and the rest is history! Aveda was officially founded in 1978.

2. The first Aveda product ever created was Clove shampoo. Legend has it that it was created in a sink OR a bathtub. Either way, we still love this iconic favorite.

3. We’ve been cruelty-free since our founding in 1978. We do not test on animals and never ask others to do so on our behalf. Our products are “people-tested.” Being a cruelty-free brand is an important part of our mission to care for the world we live in and for those we live with.

4. The bestselling products on Aveda.com are Shampure shampoo (a classic!) and Be Curly Curl Enhancer.

5. We were the first beauty company to use 100% post-consumer PET in our packaging in 2002.

 

And two bonus facts, just for fun:

 

We have 50,000 Aveda Artists working worldwide, and we’re always amazed and inspired by their creativity and talent.

 

The Aveda Mission guides us in everything we do – it informs every decision we make, from product packaging to the fact that we compost everything from our onsite cafeteria, Organica. It’s also one of the things our employees are the most proud of.

Après-ski Hair Tips

Related imageIt is ski season, and that means heading to the slopes to shred some fresh pow! Unfortunately it also means that when you are ready to break for Après-ski, you may end up looking like a hot mess once your helmet, goggles and whatever else you have on your head. Here are a few tips to keep you looking fresh while you refresh from a day at the mountains. 

♦ Condition is key not only for the slopes but for your hair as well. Especially during the cold months, keeping your hair in optimum shape is best. Use a weekly conditioning treatment, such as Aveda’s dry remedy™ moisturizing masque .

♦ Dry Shampoo is your friend. A quick puff of Aveda’s Shampure Dry Shampoo from your ski bag can bring limp locks back to life, keep some in your ski bag!

♦ Play up the texture. If you are one to leave your hair down you are all too familiar with the piecy, messy look you get, especially if it is snowing out. After you hit the slopes do a quick brush out and play it up even more with Aveda’s Texture Tonic, a few sprits and a quick scrunch will leave you looking like you meant for it to happen that way!

♦ Braid it. Hours on the slopes can breed, angry, snarled hair. Put it in a braid (or two) if you have the length and when you’re done for the day undo and give a shake for some fun texture. 

♦ Buns are cool too. A low bun is also great for keeping your hair out of your face and the elements.

♦ If all else fails, throw on your favorite beanie!
