For best results, add Shampure Composition to a warm tub to transform a bath into a splendid skin-softening and soul-comforting experience. Or lightly massage it all over just-showered skin or work into the ends of your hair before you shampoo to seal in moisture and ease your outlook.

New! Romantic Grandeur Makeup Collection

Inspired by magnetic hues of the rising and setting sun, Aveda has just released Romantic Grandeur, the limited edition makeup collection for fall/winter 2014.

Romantic Granduer

“Ivory light deepens to violet night in a palette inspired by dusk. Dream-like color recast the splendor of ears past and reveal a romantic, vintage quality.”

Created by Aveda’s Global Creative Director, Antoinette Beenders, Aveda’s fall makeup collection explores the ephemeral beauty and magic that exists within the realm between slumber and awareness.

“Romantic Grandeur invites you to step into that magical realm that exists between sleep and wakening,” Beenders says. “The idea was to blur the lines between fantasy and reality, and between the past and present.”

Fall 2014 Makeup Collection

Six new eye shadows range from wintery soft pastels, to rich tones and golden accents to create a deeply feminine palette. Eye pencils in Delphinium deep blue and Fresh Plum update smoky eye looks with a touch of color. Lips go bold with Gogi Berry red lip color and Mangosteen lip glaze, especially when paired with the new Fire Maple lip pencil, or more subtle with Sheer Fig lip color and Rose Blush lip glaze.

Stop in and let one of our makeup artists show you how to incorporate Aveda’s new makeup trends into your wardrobe this fall!

Makeover Madness

We love to do makeovers! There’s nothing more magical than to see people light up when they see their new look. We’ve seen makeovers give people a whole new attitude.

Naturally Straighter Hair

Want to straighter, smoother hair without chemicals? You’ve got to check out Aveda’s newest product! It’s quickly became one of our favorites and we know it’ll be one of yours too.

Now you can go from naturally curly to naturally straight hair with Aveda’s new Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight styling crème. This amazing new product makes it easier to style your hair into a smooth, straight look and as you continue to use this product to style your hair, it will progressively hold the straighter style longer. As you blow-dry your curls, plant-derived fibers create a locking layer to keep your hair straight, day after day. In testing, 94 percent of product testers said it helped eliminate curl immediately and Aveda found that after five consecutive applications of Naturally Straight, hair will stay straight to up to three washes! Organic cassava root helps form a barrier against even the intense Kansas humidity – so you don’t have to worry about frizz!

She has studied under an American Board Certified Colorist and other advanced academies to stay up to date on what’s happening in hair. In her new position, Hannah will coordinate education from Aveda, other companies and our talented team, as well as help teach classes herself.

Dress for Success Makeover Magic

For the tenth year in a row, Planet Hair was honored to participate in the Dress for Success Sisterhood of the Divine Makeover. We love being part of this event, a major fundraiser for this incredible organization that promotes economic independence and job placement for disadvantaged women.

Women who deserve a makeover are nominated before the event by friends, family and coworkers.  The winning nominees were given head-to-toe makeovers including hair, makeup, clothing and a whole new attitude, and were revealed at a luncheon sponsored by Via Christi at the Wichita Marriott on June 21.

It’s so much fun to see the difference a makeover can make, especially for such deserving women. Great job Tod!
