Alanna + Dennis

One of the benefits of doing what we do is the opportunity to meet new people and to visit some of the beautiful areas around us. Alanna and her family were the quintessential bridal clients, super sweet and fun to be around. We also love getting the chance to work out the York Harbor Inn, a gorgeous Inn with views of the ocean right across the street. It is one of our favorite places to cater to our clients.

How to Use Be Curly Enhancer

Image result for be curly enhancer

If you have curly hair, you have to try Be Curly Curl Enhancer. That’s all there is to it. It maximizes and enhances any natural curl in your hair, from subtle waves to coils, making it one of our favorite — and best-selling — Aveda styling products.

 

How to use:
Shampoo and condition your hair as usual and apply any prep products you typically use. We love to pair it with the Be Curly Style-Prep to help control frizz. Then, apply a small amount of Curl Enhancer to your midlengths and ends. Use your fingers to detangle the curls and make sure you’re applying the product all the way through your hair. You can choose to air dry or diffuse your hair, whatever your styling preference is. (We recommend diffusing for the best results.)

 

Why it works:
Be Curly Curl Enhancer’s star ingredients, wheat protein and organic aloe, help hair expand when it’s wet and retract when dry to intensify your curl or wave. We love it because it won’t make curls feel crunchy, and the added ingredient of geranium gives them a light floral aroma.

 

However, if you don’t have curls or waves, Be Curly Curl Enhancer won’t create them for you. It’s a product meant for those with natural texture to their hair. Be Curly Curl Enhancer will intensify and enhance your curls and waves while providing extra shine and frizz defense, making it a must have for anyone with a little spring in their step … or hair.

Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair

This bestselling leave-in treatment instantly repairs damaged hair and also protects it from heat damage, so if you lighten your hair or love to heat-style, it’s probably a good match for you. It’s 97% naturally-derived* and includes ingredients like quinoa, macadamia and soy. Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair instantly strengthens and repairs hair to make it look and feel healthier.

 

Where does Daily Hair Repair fit into your hair care routine, and who is it best for? We’ll show you exactly how to use it for the best results.

 

When to use:
Use it right out of the shower on towel-dried hair. Daily Hair Repair works best if you use it before your styling products. We like to apply it before combing wet hair to provide some protection from breakage.

 

How to use:
Apply a small amount to the palm of your hands and work it through hair, starting at the ends where your hair needs the product most. The hair closest to your scalp tends to be the healthiest and the ends the most damaged, but if you feel you need care all the way through your hair, feel free to run it through from scalp to tip.

 

After using:
Once you’ve applied the leave-in to your hair, style as usual. Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair pairs well with many of our styling products since it’s a leave-in treatment. Think of it like a prep product in that it’s preparing your hair for styling.

 

Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is good for all hair types, but especially those who are experiencing damage. If you’re in love with your blowdryer, this is a great product for you! Add it to your hair care routine today for an instant dose of health and strength.

Easy Ways to Update Your Beauty Routine for Spring & Summer

Warmer weather is here and that means that for the best skin and hair, it’s time to shake up your beauty routine. Luckily, we’ve got the products (and the experts) to help you make the most of spring and summer. Aveda Makeup Pure-Fessional Anne Skubis can show you how to glow and look gorgeous all spring and summer long.

 

First up: skin care! Anne’s number one product pick is, of course, Daily Light Guard SPF 30. (She lives in Arizona, so SPF is always a priority.) Daily Light Guard is a lightweight, blendable, 100% mineral-derived sunscreen AND a plant-derived pollution defense, suitable for all skin types. It keeps your skin protected from UVA/UVB rays, and Anne also thinks it makes a great makeup primer!

Cleaning out your beauty cabinet and swapping winter products for summer ones doesn’t need to be a chore — have fun with it! “In winter, when the heat is on full blast, I grab the Tulasāra Renew Morning Crème to make up for any moisture deficiency I experience,” Anne says. Once the heat is off, she reaches for Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Soft Crème, a plant-powered crème that doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. “I love using the Botanical Kinetics All-Sensitive Cleanser year-round, but when the seasons change and my allergies act up, I find that I need it even more.” To treat your skin, try Tulasāra Calm Concentrate. Its springy aroma of oman chamomile, clary sage and neroli will get you in the right seasonal headspace.

Image result for aveda feed lipIf you only purchase one beauty product for spring and summer, Anne recommends a lip liner and lipstick pairing. “When spring comes, we often change our hair color, even if subtly. With a change in hair color comes the opportunity to change up makeup and try something different,” she says. “I like to wear deep crimson reds like Feed My Lips lipstick in Chili in fall and winter and change to bright apple reds in the spring and summer — I like Jujube and Cana. I do the same with the eye shadow colors, switching from deep jewel tones like the Plum Mist trio to bright, fresh colors like Aqua Pearl and Earth Rose.”

 

Give in to the temptation to go a little lighter and brighter with nature-inspired rose pink and orange tones that mimic the colors of a summertime sunset. If pink is your favorite color, try Feed My Lips lipstick in juicy Guava or Prickly Pear. They look gorgeous with a summer glow and even better with an iced tea or a glass of rosé. Just saying.
