Elixir Salon & Day Maker
Elixir Salon & Day Maker's stylists add texture to hair with an unconventional substance—marshmallow. Marshmallow root, that is. It's one of the many botanically based Aveda lotions, oils, and creams the salon favors. Their makeups, for example, might be made from Brazilian nut-seed pigment, cinnamon from Madagascar, or the anti-oxidants of ripe berries.
But amid the bazaar of natural products, one still finds the sleek plastic casing of modern technology. Elixir's signature HeadMapping process applies highlights systematically, while the microdermabrasion smoothes away signs of age with a crystal wand. Continuous education keeps the stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists abreast of the latest trends and techniques in their fields without calling a psychic hotline.
