The Aveda Institute, Washington DC

Today was a good day because I got my hair did! I was in hardcore need of highlights, my roots were growling at me in the mirror telling me to make an appointment somewhere. I partially blame the green monsters for making my hair grow so fast. I like it, because I am trying to grow out my layers, but I don’t like it because it can cost me a pretty penny!

Luckily, I found a gem in the city of D.C. – The Aveda Institute. Seriously, I am SO lucky to be so close to this bad boy. I only wish I knew about it sooner. It is a school for Aveda stylists, and the students are there working on your hair/nails/face, etc. I got highlights and a haircut for $60, which is seriously a rocking price, and I love my new highlights! If I went to a regular Aveda salon, it would cost me $60 just for the cut.

I wasn’t nervous about being worked on by a student, because teachers were walking around the whole time, and checked everything throughout the process. I was also constantly asked if everything was exactly how I wanted it, which made me feel pretty good.

On top of the killer price and service, if I booked my next appointment before I left (which I was planning on doing anyway) I get an extra 20% off my next appt! Umm…YES PLEASE! I made an appointment for my next highlight, before the wedding I have in May. I also made an appointment for a facial, which will be my first. I am pumped. Its an hour and a half worth of pampering for $45. Actually it will be less than that with my 20% discount. Seriously, such a good deal, I had great results, the people working there were great, I am so pumped that I have finally found a hair place to call my own!

Check it out to see if there is one in your area! TOTALLY worth it!

LIFE: In a Fish Bowl

So today was my beauty day before my big trip on Thursday. It included highlights, nails and a wax. My hair appointment was supposed to be yesterday but it got canceled because of the snow so I had to smush it all into today. Rough life at the spa! I got my highlights first, and if you have ever had them with foil, you know you look kinda silly while the color is setting. I have A LOT of hair, which calls for A LOT of foil. This results in a very INTERESTING look.

Please embrace:

HOT STUFF! I rocked this look while getting my manicure done. I sat in this chair, by a huge window, at a highly populated shopping center. People were literally walking by me, pointing and laughing. Some people even walked by twice I think. I am glad that I was able to provide a smile to the people of Reston Town Center tonight. Thank gosh no one I know walked by!

Please embrace my manicure chair from the outside angle! Totally worth the it because I love my hair and am totally beach ready now!
Love you Aveda!
