Wichita Art Museum Art Park Anniversary
Saturday, September 24 from 5 to 8 pm

We are honored to be invited back to participate in the Wichita Art Museum first anniversary party of the grand opening of their beautiful Art Garden. We had so much fun last year creating botanical hair styles for the opening party; we can’t wait to show you what we have planned for this year’s celebration! We’ve been challenged to come up with fashions that coincide with the opening of the new fall exhibit, Shiny, Sticky, Smooth: Pop Art and the Senses, so you know it’s going to be good. Evening festivities start at 5 pm with local food trucks and fun in the garden. We go on at 7 pm, with surprise musical entertainment to follow. The event is free, open to the public and includes free admission into the museum to see the new exhibit, so there’s no reason not to be there.

Want to look younger? Protect your skin!

Daily_Light_Guard_stylized_product_imageEnvironmental damage is the most common cause of skin damage like dark spots, loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to make daily protection a habit. Let Nature help defend your skin’s natural beauty with sheer, weightless defense against the elements that damage skin. Great for all skin types, add daily light guard™ to your skin care routine, over your morning moisturizer, to help defend against the elements that visibly damage skin every day.

New daily light guard™ has a spf of 30 with advanced technology to make its zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sunscreens glide on sheer and smooth—while plant-derived anti-oxidants help protect you against free radical damage from environmental elements. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are effective sunscreens because they create a physical barrier on the skin’s surface—helping protect skin from UVA and UVB rays. This is how Nature helps defend your skin’s natural beauty!

Look What We’re Learning!

Our team loves to learn new trends and techniques! Recently we had Aveda educators Alberto Rossell-Davis (color artist) and Susan Ford (cutting artist) in the salon for an inspirational class to help push our creativity, in both hair cutting and color. We learned some fun new geometric cutting and coloring techniques that mimic a prismatic effect to create three dimensional colors that shift in perspective when viewed from different angles. We had a blast and can’t wait to try out our new techniques!

Aveda’s New Solution to Men’s Thinning Hair

Our stylists and clients love Aveda’s  Invati line of hair care products for thinning hair. We’ve seen some incredible results! Now Aveda has created a new formula specifically for men.

Easy to use, there are only two everyday steps to make men’s hair feel stronger and look thicker. The Invati Men Nourishing, Exfoliating Shampoo exfoliates and refreshes the scalp as it conditions to help strengthen hair.  The leave-in Invati Men Scalp Revitalizer instantly thickens the hair at the root, helping invigorate the scalp when massaged in.

Ask your stylist if Invati is for you and try it for yourself!

The Earth is our Muse

On Monday, April 4, Aveda salons around Wichita came together for the first ever for Catwalk for Water, an annual green carpet event to raise money for Earth Month.

The event showcased local Aveda salon’s inspiration, creativity and technical skills in hair, makeup and fashion, raising $15,000 for our local Aveda Earth Month partner, Audubon Kansas/Missouri to continue clean water efforts, to inform and insure clean and safe water for our future. Using the earth as their muse, design teams created comprehensive looks that celebrated beauty, fashion and Aveda’s mission to care for the world we live in.

Our team had a fantastic time creating two looks for the event, made from recycled materials.

For the Princess Warrior look, our team created an outfit made from beer bottle caps donated by The Anchor. The headdress was made with the inside part of Aveda color tubes, cut into flowers and butterflies and stacked on each other to form into a crown. More color tubes were cut like feathers and pasted to a mold using wire hangers to create the wings

We also created this Packing Paper Princess look, inspired by of Thrones meets Alice in Wonderland. Using a large hoop skirt as the framework, we ironed and folded recycled packing paper to create fans to attach to the skirt. The bodice used the same paper, cut in strips and woven together, to add another layer of texture. The headdress was designed by cutting and stacking toilet paper and paper towel rolls to create our rendition of the Queen of Hearts headdress.

We had an amazing time at Aveda Catwalk for Water – Wichita and our team was honored to win the Best Overall award for our Princess Warrior look!
