What is AVEDA Stress Fix? Ahh, I forgot to mention that Stress Fix is one of my very favorite AVEDA products ever!!

The aroma is proven to relieve feelings of stress. It carries the essence of lavender, lavandin, and clary sage, from organic farms. And is formulated using the science of aromaology and the power of pure essential oils.

Now, it’s time to relax! If you don’t have a Valentine, treat yourself!

A tribute to the founder of Aveda…

 

So, I recently went for my usual hair appointment at Brieshi. This time, while I was there, my stylist asked if I had heard of Aveda’s new composition oil – Love Composition Oil. I asked what, exactly, a composition oil was. My stylist explained to me that it’s a  custom blend of essential oils that are great for the hair, scalp, and the bath and body. It contains no silicones, so it absorbs directly into the skin, leaving no greasy residue, while leaving your skin extremely hydrated and aromatic.

My stylist gave me a scalp massage with the Love Composition Oil, as well as a hand massage.  My skin was left feeling super soft and moisturized. The sensual aroma was very relaxing for the duration of my appointment.

It was also suggested to me to put a few drops in a hot bath, or put on skin after you step out of the shower!!

There is more that makes this oil so special. Love Composition Oil honors the memory of founder Horst Rechelbacher, who passed away in 2014. The oil contains ingredients sourced from sandalwood, jasmine, and frankincense,  which were Rechelbacher’s favorite.

Aveda also donates $4 of every purchase to the National Audubon Society, for projects that fight climate change.

Be sure to stop by Brieshi and try out the Love Composition Oil for yourself. You’ll LOVE it!

April is Earth Month!

Aveda has dedicated a whole month to celebrate the earth. A day was simply not long enough to celebrate this wondrous place of which we dwell :)

Since 1999 the Aveda network and supporters have raised more than $38 million dollars to support organizations that directly affect environmental change, both locally and globally.

April is Earth Month and Brieshi is gladly supporting the cause!

If you donate $5 to Earth Month at Brieshi, you are entered to win a free haircut by the stylist of YOUR choice. Yes, that means your favorite 😉

Donate $20 and you will be entered to win a free color, also with the stylist of YOUR choice. No restrictions or expiration dates!

So… by making a donation to help the earth, you have a shot to win a haircut or color with any stylist that you choose. I would have donated anyway, but it’s much more fun whenever #winning is a possibility!

 

Oh, and don’t forget to pick up your Light The Way candle (only $12) while you’re at Brieshi. 100% of proceeds go towards the Earth Month goal.

Don’t let me forget to mention that this candle is amazing, just like everything Aveda!

Indulge in the rich and spicy aroma of organic vanilla and cinnamon grown in Madagascar.

These candles are only available during Earth Month, so don’t wait! I will have 2, please :)

Light The Way candles have raised more than $9 million in proceeds, which have funded 1,300 grants in 78 countries! That’s impressive.

Clean water is something that we take for granted daily, or at least I do. Many parts of the world do not share that luxury. Your donation can and will make a difference.

So go into Brieshi and make your donation for a chance to win! And don’t forget your Light The Way candle. <3

All donations to Earth Month are greatly appreciated by everyone at Aveda, and the Brieshi Team!

New Talent!!

Brieshi has decided to freshen things up a bit! That’s right, we’ve got NEW TALENT! So what does this mean? This means you will be able to receive the same great Aveda experience at an exceptional price when you book an appointment with one of our Fresh Talent stylists.

Unlike most salons, Brieshi has a 6 month paid apprenticeship program to further train our new stylists once hired at our location. These Fresh Talent stylists are licensed cosmetologists. At Brieshi, we strive for an exceptional experience for all of our clients, which is why we deem it necessary that all stylists participate in our Fresh Talent Program before they become an AVEDA- Brieshi stylist.

As the Fresh Talent stylists take the required AVEDA classes to become Brieshi stylists, they get approved to perform certain services at a discounted rate to our guests. Such as head massages, hot-towel treatments, along with cuts and styling. Not to mention a variety of other services offered at Brieshi. Now that’s a Win Win!

So let me break down the numbers for you. A woman’s haircut for Fresh Talent is $30 and a man’s haircut is $15.  A woman’s shampoo and style is regularly priced at $30 by itself, so therefore the haircut performed by one of our Fresh Talent stylists is technically free. Free is good! Right? 

Brieshi gives the Fresh Talent stylists hands-on experience on skills as they become more proficient in AVEDA techniques and familiarized with the products.  A senior stylist will be readily available to assist the Fresh Talent stylists as needed.

Please book your appointment today with one of these fabulous stylists!  Just because they are new to Brieshi doesn’t mean they are new to doing hair. They are super talented and eager to learn.  This is for a limited time only because they will be moving up to the next level after several months.  So get them while you can…

| Go Shorty |

This is going to be a very hot summer, so adjust your hair accordingly! The popular style we’ve seen in the salon is a short, textured bob! You may have seen some celebrities blazing the short trail, such as Taylor Swift, Lilly Collins, Ciara, Kylie Jenner, Alexa Chung, among others.

A lot of our guests rave about how easy shorter hair is to style and manage. We do have a few products from Aveda that can help achieve the fun, textured look that is so popular!

Volumizing Tonic: This is one of our most popular products because all hair types can see a difference. It’s a heat-activated styling product, which means that when you spray it on your damp hair (on the crown), it goes into action when you begin blow drying! It adds increased volume and a light hold to last the day.

Defining Whip: Now, this is where the textured, piece-y look is achieved. The defining whip is just what it sounds like, a light whip that adds a messy, yet controlled, look. Scrunch into the ends of your hair and use the excess to work up the hair towards the crown.

Air Control: This is our most popular hair sprays because of its versatility. It’s light, yet provides a workable hold. Use it as a finishing touch for your new bob.

Bring in your pictures or use some of these to show your stylist next time you’re in at Brieshi!

|A Pure Privilege|

Hello Brieshi guests! My name is Rayna and I have more than likely (and hopefully!) helped make your visit to our salon a little easier, as I work at the front desk. I’ve taken on this blog to entertain and inform you of the inner workings of our salon and the beauty industry alike. Feel free to leave comments and feedback, as we are taking this journey together!

My first item of business is to make sure you are aware of what Pure Privilege is and what a cool opportunity it is for all of you Aveda lovers. We are classified as a “Lifestyle” salon in the Aveda world. So this means, we exclusively sell Aveda products and use these throughout all of the services we provide here. As an incentive for you (besides all the amazing benefits you’ll discover just from the products themselves), Aveda has a rewards program called Pure Privilege. For every dollar that you spend on products, you receive 10 points. You can accumulate these points to earn certificates for free services that we honor here at Brieshi, and also products and opportunities within Aveda. Would you believe that we’ve witnessed a few guests earn trips to Jamaica and many on their way to this year’s option, Antigua? It’s a win-win.

So how do you become involved with Pure Privilege? Easy. Come visit us next time you want to stock up on your products and we’ll get you signed up. The one-time fee of $10 is a small price to pay, especially when Pure Privilege sends you a birthday gift each year and a certificate for “Double Points.” As the name implies, there are a few occasions that you can earn 20 points for every dollar spent! These times include: your sign up day (my tip to you: make sure it’s worthwhile, like when you plan to purchase in bulk), on your birthday, and special weekends throughout the year. It’s all a part of a strategy.

For those of you who have Pure Privilege, come in Mother’s Day Weekend (May 8th-11th) for a Double Points opportunity. Anyone who does not have a membership, when you come in during these days and sign up, you will earn TRIPLE points on your purchases. This is the opportune time if you’re looking for one!

Let me know if you have any questions on this topic. It’s simple really: Buy & Earn. Hopefully, I have inspired you to start planning your trip to Antigua!

Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil

Aveda has launched the new Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil.  Everyone has heard of Argan oil and Marrocan oil.  These oils contain silicones which only coat the hair and do not penetrate the hair.  They do not actually repair the hair.  They only give the appearance of moisture and shine until the oil is rinsed out.

The Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil contains no silicones and penetrates the hair to the core moisturizing the hair 41% immediately.  With the hydrating power of the buriti oil, Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil leaves your hair soft and full of shine by only using 2 to 4 drops.

Who needs this product?

Anyone whose hair lacks moisture, who wants more shine, and who wants softer hair.

Do you have thicker, curlier hair?

Use 2 to 4 drops when wet and style as normal.

Throughout the day does your hair need more moisture?

Add 2 drops to your hand and apply to ends.

Do you have thin, fine hair?

Use 1 to 2 drops to ends after your hair is dried.

What ingredients does it have?

Organic Buriti oil has pomegranate, certified organic sunflower and olive oil.

What gives the oil its soothing aroma?

Organic Lavender, Bergamot and Ginger Lily

Unlike most salons, Brieshi has a 6 month paid apprenticeship program to further train our new stylists once hired at our location. These Fresh Talent stylists are licensed cosmetologist.  Some have even worked at other salons for a brief time.  Most stylist receive their license and go straight into the work force.  Here at Brieshi, we believe they need additional training to be called an AVEDA and Brieshi stylist.

For instance, a woman’s haircut for Fresh Talent is $30 and a man’s haircut is $15.  A woman’s shampoo and style is regularly priced at $30 so therefore the haircut performed by one of our Fresh Talent stylists is technically free.
