Happy Earth Day! At AVEDA every day is Earth Day but today especially. Today we honor Horst Rechelbacher without his love for others, commitment to the environment, and passion for wellness, we would not have this family which we call Aveda. Thank you, Horst!

Walk for Water PROVO

What a perfect day we had for our annual walk for water to support our local Earth month partner Western Resource Advocates! Starting the day off with our Walk for Water was the best – Bright and early and ready to race/walk for a great cause. We had a great turn out not just from the students but from their beloved pets as well! It was so much fun to have the animals apart of the day. This event alone raised $1,115(and counting)!

Look Good, Do Good

Come join us in any of our locations on April 7th for AVEDA’s global cut a thon! All proceeds from this event will go to our local earth month partner Western Resource Advocates, to protect clean water! Book your appointment now (520) 207-2660!

(BTW, this number will let your book for any of our locations!)

Interesting Facts about Lipstick!

Our Director here at AIP has been sharing these fun facts about Lipstick and thought with Valentine’s Day coming up this week that I would share them 🙂 XO

Guest Blogger(s): Men’s Cutting Coaches Meagan MacPhee and Robert Kelly

Our Men’s Cutting Coaches, Megan and Robert, put together a weekly newsletter for our educators that highlights techniques, pedagogy, and products.  I loved this feature on the importance of workshops.  I hope you enjoy it, too!  ^AS

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” William Butler Yeats

I am sure we can all agree as educators that one of the things we hear the most from our Future Professionals is that they are afraid to take a service.  This seems to be especially true for men’s cuts.  How many times, if any, have they had the opportunity to work on a male guest?

Salon floor workshops during downtime may not be the all-inclusive fix to their fears, but it’s a great place to start!  As our team lead Carrie Bellus says,” the Salon floor is our largest classroom.”  In light of that, are we utilizing our time on the Salon floor to model techniques and to invite them to experience hand’s on during a workshop?

Our Future Professionals have the answer on where they feel they need further instruction.  Want to know what to show the FPs? Ask!  Once we have the information, 4mat a salon floor workshop and watch for your F.P’s ah-ha moments and celebrate the fact that you care enough about their education to deliver a better understanding of our curriculum.

Back in October the Aveda Institute in Provo held their PINK Hair and Makeup Show! It was such a fun night! The student’s work was great, and we even enjoyed some entertainment before the big fashion show with a vocal group, dance team, and a magician! Besides all the fun talent we got to see that night we had a big silent auction to help raise even more money to go towards Breast Cancer Research. We had so many generous people and companies donate to our silent auction. Here at AIP we raised over $6,000 for cruelty free breast cancer research from our PINK show! Aveda is always looking for ways to give back, and love that we were able to do that while showcasing the student’s talent as well.


Green Science™ Firming Eye Creme

green eye

There is a reason this little jar has 5 stars from over 300 people on the Aveda Website. The Aveda Green Science Firming Eye Creme is what I would call magic in a bottle. I have personally started using it and have fallen in love! But don’t take my word for it, check out some reviews left on the site.

Did someone see my bags?

I lost them. 2 weeks ago my bags were right here under my eyes. Now they’re gone. The only thing I did was start using this cream at night. I can’t find my fine lines either.

No need for Masking Tape anymore

April 10, 2011


You will have no use for your tape to stretch those eyes to help them look younger. Green Science Firming Eye Creme has been a life saver. I went from looking like Geroge Burns to Justin Bieber. Well not that drastic but still, It really is a wonderful product. Initially you will feel a little warm feeling around your eye but its nothing to be alarmed about. It will soon disappear after using the product for a few times. I never leave the house without applying the eye creme. I’ve been using it since it came out and I have recently been getting a tremendous amount of compliments on area around my eyes. Too bad I had to throw away my tape, I had every color and design. But with Green Science Firming Eye Creme, a guy can thank his lucky stars for younger looking eyes.
The Best Eye Cream
October 4, 2011

I’ve been using this cream for a few years now. When I stopped using it for a while to try something else, I really noticed what a difference this cream makes! My mother tried some of mine, and she noticed a difference in just one day. She immediately went out and bought her own!
