The recipe for great hair is simple: an experienced colourist, using truly bespoke, naturally-derived colours followed by a fresh cut and finish and top after-care tips for at-home maintenance.
Sounds like a lot to consider, but with the right hair stylist it’s made easy so trying something new with your colour and cut to change up your look.
It’s time to get out of that hair rut and be inspired by these 5 top styles from Independent mindbodysoul AVEDA hair salon before your next salon appointment.
Lift and Layer
Give a mid-length bob a lift with layers to create texture and movement and introduce warm shades of gold and red to add depth. Finish with a bouncy blow dry and you have a polished yet effortless style that’s easy to maintain.
With a colour like this the key is to prevent fading; AVEDA Madder Root shampoo and conditioner uses natural ingredients to intensify red hues and enrich warm tones, giving you that salon look for longer.
The grown-out highlights look is still going strong; it lends itself well to tousled waves whether hair is long or short. Hair is naturally lighter at the ends than the roots because it’s older and has had more exposure to the elements.
To keep your locks looking smooth and styled – not just like you’ve missed several salon appointments! – maintain the richness of your colour and condition of your hair with an intensive conditioning treatment in salon and continue to care for your colour at home with AVEDA Daily Hair Repair leave-in treatment which protects from heat styling and de-tangles to help prevent further damage.
Crop and Go
Frame your face and compliment fine features with a cropped style. Maintaining a short ‘do is all about knowing how to style it yourself at home. Styling and finishing products are key for this style to define the layers and lift at the root.
AVEDA Light Elements texturizing crème or shaping wax (depending on your hair type – ask your stylist!) add definition without weighing the hair down.
Take ombré to another level with violet-toned roots to add a fun finish to your look. On paper, deep purple to the lightest of blondes may seem a graduated step too far but in practice, with a talented stylist and the right cut and style to finish, this blended colour gives a luxe look. Maintain the two-tones with AVEDA Colour Conserve collection at home.
Brassy-blondes are a thing of the past with the colour technology and bespoke formulas in AVEDA high lift tints. An experiences colourist will find the right shade of blonde for your hair to create a natural, lifted look without the brassiness. At home, AVEDA Blue Malva shampoo and conditioner keeps blondes light and bright, removing build up that can dull your colour.
