You’ve heard me mention it a time or two, but these thin locks can take all the help they can get! I’m always looking to try new products that will help make my hair look (and feel) more full and healthy. I’ve tried various new shampoos, serums and even vitamins over the last few years, and have shared my favorites here! So needless to say I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to check out the Aveda Modern Salon and Spa during my recent trip to Charlotte! Whether you’re a resident of Charlotte or in town for a quick trip, their various locations throughout the city make it easy and convenient to schedule an appointment!
I knew I was in for a treat with exceptional service and great quality products. I met with Annie, a Junior Stylist at the Metropolitan location and she helped me choose the look I wanted to achieve. I aimed to put some life back into my hair, while going a little lighter for summer. As you can tell by the before and after pictures above, Annie took my locks from dry and brittle, to golden and volumous!
About a year ago I was due for a change and feeling a little spontaneous, so I cut 8-10 inches off my locks on a whim! Is it just me, or does your hair take longer to grow when you get older? Nonetheless, I’m still trying to grow it out and feel like it is the slowest process, ever! Like my normal day to day make-up routine, I prefer my overall look to be minimal and natural, so Annie began working her magic like she was painting a masterpiece. To this day I am still in awe of her technique, she has definitely mastered the art of balayage.
As an avid Aveda user, I loved chatting with Annie about her favorite hair care products! We both shared our love for Shampure; Aveda’s version of a dry shampoo, the Thickening Tonic and Hair Potion. You can see me talk about how I use them in my daily hair care routine here. My new obsession? The Organic Pure Care line!
In my opinion, the hand and scalp massage are enough reason to book an appointment ASAP!
It was such a treat to visit this adorable salon and if you are in the Charlotte area in the upcoming weeks – I can’t encourage you enough to give Modern Salon & Spa a try for your upcoming beauty needs. They offer a range of services including body treatments, facials, nail care and haircuts/ styling! At the end of my visit with Annie I felt pampered and fabulous and couldn’t wait to attend the wedding to show off my new look! Have any of you ever stopped by this beauty salon and if so, which service did you choose?
Thanks so much for reading and a big thank you to Modern Salon & Spa!
