Good morning all, I have a client that has moved to Chantilly, VA which is near Fairfax, VA. Does anyone know an Aveda salon in that area that I can refer her too? She has very Thick, Long, Curly hair. Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays to the Aveda network.....

I thought about it but went with another school instead.

Is anyone currently a student of an Aveda Inst?

I wanted to share how much the new spray Damage Remedy Treatment has changed my bottom line.  I have incorporated it into my consultation with each guest.  It takes little to no extra time (5 min max) and some guests I leave it in.  It increased my average ticket and now I just say to myself my haircuts cost this.......It has worked and i think I have only had two people say no in 3 weeks.  It is an easy sale and everyone needs it and they love it.  Just put it in your mind like it is part of discussing the length or color tone of the hair, be passionate and genuine and you will sell it to almost everyone.  LOVE IT!!!!

Hotels, Please Note: If you are from out of town and want to attend both days, we are currently arranging special hotel room rates for Expo guests. Updated info will be posted, here, soon. 



Expo Day 2:


Day Two is all education: We facilitate simultaneous, hands-on workshops covering aspects of successful, contemporary hairdressing, including: razor-cutting, coloring, editorial, and business-building with Nick. Tickets to attend one of the Day Two workshops are $299. Workshops take place in the morning and afternoon. One morning or afternoon session constitutes one $299 workshop.

Prep hair with smooth infusion style prep smoother (defense against humitidy and heat styling) while wet. If hair is already dry you can use the brilliant damage control all over then brilliant hair spray (my fav!) then curl. Heat protection hold and shine!
