Welcome Spring!

Posted on March 27, 2015 by Gordon Beauty Blogger

The temperature is hovering around 40 degrees, the ground is still frozen and our winter boots are still covered in salt stains. It seems like spring in Chicago is barely here. That may be right weather-wise, but spring beauty is in full force! You may not notice it outside, but step into the best salon in the Chicagoland area, and you’ll see spring haircuts and warm weather highlights everywhere. Here are some ways to welcome spring into your life!

Exfoliate: The wind chill is calming down, and moisture is slowly creeping back into the air. Our skin is going to start getting less and less dry as the days warm up. When this happens, consider a less intense exfoliator. Or exfoliate less often. Try Aveda Botanical Kinetics exfoliant- it’s light and smells amazing! As an Aveda salon, we know any of expert estheticians will be able to help you with your a spring skin regime.

Add Color: This might mean a visit to the salon for spring highlights or a quick peruse of the Aveda makeup counter. This season’s Rare Bloom collection has enough bright colors and deeps hues to last you all season long. We are obsessed with Magenta Berry Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color. Wear it during the day for a pop of color in the office, or try it over the Dragonfruit Lip Liner for a dramatic look at night. Applying color to your lips is the easiest way to brighten up your look for spring. For the more daring types, try the luscious Tidepool Eyeliner. Even a quick flick at the outer edge of your top lash line will have you dreaming of aqua pools and bright blue skies.

Chop It Off: Gone are the days of flaky dry skin and an even flakier dry scalp- we hope! Make the most of your wishful thinking and welcome spring with a fresh cut. Even though lobs (long bobs) are trending right now, your hair could still benefit from a good two or three inches off the bottom. It would lighten up the rest of your hair and add natural volume. Your ends know you need it. Your hair stylist knows you need it!
