Comforting tea

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 9.54.27 PM

The moment you step into an AVEDA salon or Experience center you are greeted with a warm, delicious cup of comforting tea. It is deliciously sweet and flavorful without having any sugar or added-flavors. I would like to share a few  benefits as well as ingredient information, enjoy!

Peppermint and Licorice root give this a wonderful blend of sweet and refreshing. Drinking peppermint will help relieve stress as well as help clear up and congestion you may have. Peppermint is full of vital minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and vitamin A & C which will help with cold and flu. Licorice root is known for its anti-inflammatory properties which can help ease joint pain. There are many health reasons to drink AVEDA tea, but my #1 favorite is because it is absolutely delicious!

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.

KEEPING YOU RESOLUTIONS

Glitter applause

Now that we’re half way through January and the excitement of your resolutions is getting less sparkly by the day, lets talk about keeping your resolutions.

1. Become accountable for your goals- Confide in a friend, significant other, or even social media about your goals. By doing this you are more likely to stick to your game plan, it doesn’t hurt to gain a few supports along the way.

2. Celebrate your little goals.-reward your self with your small goals! When you do this you are giving yourself motivation towards your BIG goals.

3.Give yourself some slack. Had an off day? That’s ok! We all do, just make sure to pick yourself back up and start again!
