Post by Kenzi A few posts back I gave you the rundown on the difference between professional products and drugstore products. I hinted a bit as to why we use Aveda here at Sin 7, but I wanted to do a post on the history of the brand and tell you exactly why we deem Aveda quality enough to use on you, our treasured guests! Founded in Minneapolis in 1978 by hair stylist Horst Rechelbacher, Aveda would not exist without the influence of an ancient Indian tradition called Ayurveda. Translating from sanskrit as the "science of life," Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing that focuses on creating balance between mind, body and spirit. During a trip to India in 1970, Rechelbacher first encountered the system, thus inspiring his vision for his company. In its first year, Aveda Corporation partnered with two Ayurvedic experts (Drs. Vinod and Kusum Upadhyay), fusing the brand with 1000s of years of proven results: that interconnectedness, and treating the person as a whole, brings balance and [...]

Spring makeup is here!

  Spring is here and so is Aveda's 2014 Spring/Summer makeup! Aptly called Culture Clash, this new collection blends diverse colours and textures on a global level, from tribal and folkloric to urban and contemporary. All these seemingly clashing styles come together to form a fresh and feminine line perfect for the new season.   Culture Clash has a distinct boho vibe with a futuristic flair, says Janell Geason (Aveda Global Artistic Director for Makeup, and creator of the new line). For makeup, this means pairing natural, earthy tones like warm coppers and fleshy nudes with a pop of vivid color, for a look that feels fresh and pretty yet sophisticated. Here's a sneak peak at the collection: Lips nourish-mint rehydrating lip glaze in rose copper and berry bud: formulated with plant emollients to moisturize, smooth, and plump. Refreshing organic vanilla and mint flavour. nourish-mint smoothing lip colour in peruvian lily: full coverage lipstick formulated with plant and fruit essences to hydrate and plump, proven to smooth lines by 26%. Refreshing [...]
