Well hel-lo! Just last week we got in Aveda Men's new Pure-Formance(tm) skin and shave products. Pure-Formance(tm) Shave Cream is a moisturizing formula that preps skin for a close, comfortable, less resistant shave. It helps reduce razor burn during the shaving process; Pure-Formance(tm) Dual Action Aftershave is a non-greasy, 2-in-1 post shave moisturizer that provides lightweight daily hydration and oil control while soothing and relieving freshly shaved or irritated skin. It's clinically proven to help reduce razor burn and minimize ingrown hairs. Both products feature Aveda Men's exclusive phyto-active blend, proven effective in calming, soothing and relieving the skin. This blend includes: Seaweed - Concentrated source of minerals that help act as a protective barrier for skin and scalp Licorice root - An ancient Chinese remedy believed to soothe and calm Ursolic acid (sage extract) - A highly active anti-oxidant Plai oil - Member of the ginger family, a centuries-old folk remedy for helping relieve skin irritation Natural emollients, vitamin E and aloe - for skin conditioning and protection Scutellaria baicaiensis root oil (Skull Cap) - for anti-irritation and anti-oxidant benefits Argan oil - helps condition and moisturize skin Features the distinct Aveda Men aroma, comprised of kunzea and certified organic essential oils of lemon, vetiver and lavender It smells gooooood. It will make your man (or yourself, if you're a fella) smell goooood, and make his skin look and feel good too! Ask us for a free sample of the Dual Action Aftershave, while supplies last.
Trust me when I tell you, gals - you will LOVE the new Control Force hairspray from Aveda. Indeed, I have described it as having nearly mythical powers, specifically all-day hold and humidity control, without that "model airplane glue" feeling that you tend to get with a strong fixative spray. We got our shipment in this week and have been doing the happy dance ever since! Stop in soon and grab your can - we may have a hard time keeping this on the shelves. (Make it in before Thursday July 1 and beat the dreaded HST!) By the way, Aveda is the first beauty company to produce aerosol sprays with net-zero climate impact. How cool, eh? We wouldn't want it any other way.
Our first two weeks were monumental and we can't thank our friends, family, and (especially) our guests enough. We've gotten such beautiful flowers and cards, a pie, a silver wishbone (so neat!), and so many warm congratulations and well-wishes that we are truly honored and humbled. Your support has been invaluable in helping us make our dream come true. Our fabulous German Master Stylist, Grit, went on maternity leave and we miss her already. Best wishes to Grit and Mike as they start their happy family. (Psssst...Grit...I'm knitting as fast as I can!) We will be bending over backward to accomodate Grit's clients until she comes back, so just give us a call and we'll pinch hit for the new mama until she's ready to return. We've lost fantastic stylist for a while, but on the same day we gained new team member Chantelle. Chantelle comes to us with more than 4 years experience behind the chair and she's been doing some dynamite work in the shop so far. We're thrilled to welcome her to Sin 7 Salon! To get an appointment with Chantelle right away, give us a call at 604-560-5360. She works every Wednesday through Saturday and will add Tuesdays soon. Watch this site and our Facebook page for upcoming specials with Chantelle. Courtney and Kat (that's me) went to class this weekend and learned a whole lot of cool stuff to help make your experience at Sin 7 one that you will look forward to again and again. For instance, there are some great products coming out this year from Aveda (think "men"), and of course any day now we will be getting our first shipment of Control Force hairspray. As I said on Facebook, this will finally be the hairspray that lets us ditch the clandestine [...]
