A professional stylist trained in Aveda’s martial art of mane management banishes errant tresses with a range of contemporary cut and coloring treatments. Haircuts transform frayed templates into masterpieces worthy of wig-museum busts, beginning with a sumptuous course of shampoo and conditioning and finishing off with a wind-powered styling session. All cuts include a hot-towel treatment along with a neck and scalp massage that incorporates aromatherapy oils to evoke the olfactory comforts of sandalwood and chicken-noodle soup.
A glossy post-cut treatment returns estranged follicles to the garden of earthly delights, swathing them in a plant-derived Aveda Full Spectrum formula. The protective oils of sunflower, castor, and jojoba add shine, and nostrils drift away on a cloud of rose and lavender. Partial highlights or single-process color treatments deliver a kaleidoscopic range of reds and blondes with the same high-quality Aveda products, which shield colored hair from solar aggression and lick-happy cows.
