Look What We’re Learning!

Our team loves to learn new trends and techniques! Recently we had Aveda educators Alberto Rossell-Davis (color artist) and Susan Ford (cutting artist) in the salon for an inspirational class to help push our creativity, in both hair cutting and color. We learned some fun new geometric cutting and coloring techniques that mimic a prismatic effect to create three dimensional colors that shift in perspective when viewed from different angles. We had a blast and can’t wait to try out our new techniques!

Aveda’s New Solution to Men’s Thinning Hair

Our stylists and clients love Aveda’s  Invati line of hair care products for thinning hair. We’ve seen some incredible results! Now Aveda has created a new formula specifically for men.

Easy to use, there are only two everyday steps to make men’s hair feel stronger and look thicker. The Invati Men Nourishing, Exfoliating Shampoo exfoliates and refreshes the scalp as it conditions to help strengthen hair.  The leave-in Invati Men Scalp Revitalizer instantly thickens the hair at the root, helping invigorate the scalp when massaged in.

Ask your stylist if Invati is for you and try it for yourself!

The Earth is our Muse

On Monday, April 4, Aveda salons around Wichita came together for the first ever for Catwalk for Water, an annual green carpet event to raise money for Earth Month.

The event showcased local Aveda salon’s inspiration, creativity and technical skills in hair, makeup and fashion, raising $15,000 for our local Aveda Earth Month partner, Audubon Kansas/Missouri to continue clean water efforts, to inform and insure clean and safe water for our future. Using the earth as their muse, design teams created comprehensive looks that celebrated beauty, fashion and Aveda’s mission to care for the world we live in.

Our team had a fantastic time creating two looks for the event, made from recycled materials.

For the Princess Warrior look, our team created an outfit made from beer bottle caps donated by The Anchor. The headdress was made with the inside part of Aveda color tubes, cut into flowers and butterflies and stacked on each other to form into a crown. More color tubes were cut like feathers and pasted to a mold using wire hangers to create the wings

We also created this Packing Paper Princess look, inspired by of Thrones meets Alice in Wonderland. Using a large hoop skirt as the framework, we ironed and folded recycled packing paper to create fans to attach to the skirt. The bodice used the same paper, cut in strips and woven together, to add another layer of texture. The headdress was designed by cutting and stacking toilet paper and paper towel rolls to create our rendition of the Queen of Hearts headdress.

We had an amazing time at Aveda Catwalk for Water – Wichita and our team was honored to win the Best Overall award for our Princess Warrior look!
