Choosing where to get your hair done is not a decision most people take lightly. When you live in Chicago and there are salons and hairdressers around every corner, how do you choose? It takes time to painstakingly comb through the stylists and reviews on salons, especially when you don’t know where to start. XEX makes it an easy choice by creating the foundation for success by being an Aveda Salon. An honor to achieve, Aveda salons can provide a guarantee of excellence just by the name alone. They stand out for their unique blend of quality products, prioritizing the health of your hair and a holistic approach to beauty. When in doubt, refer to this article outlining some of the reasons Aveda salons will always be choice number one. 

Natural and Eco-Friendly Products

Aveda is known for its commitment to using naturally derived ingredients for your hair, ensuring that the health of your hair is a priority of every treatment and service. Aveda’s website says, “ In 2020, we made the critical decision to become 100% vegan, thereby removing all animal products and by-products from our formulas. Now and forever, all of our formulas are free of ingredients like beeswax and honey, relying instead on high-performing alternatives.” They are also Leaping Bunny certified, promising “the most coveted and rigorous cruelty-free beauty certification available. It is attained through Cruelty-Free International, the leading organization to end animal experimentation on a global scale”. 

The company also utilizes sustainability at every stage, from responsibly sourcing ingredients and using eco-friendly packaging for all their products.

Customized Color Training and Expertise

One of the highlights of being an Aveda salon is access to their customized color solutions that include training and execution of perfection whether it be a balayage, highlights, or an all-over dye. Trained on how to understand and match style, skin tone, and preference, you will be happy with your result no matter if you choose a fun color, a difficult technique, or something natural to complement your style and shape.

Aveda salon colorists also have access to continual education, ensuring that all stylists are up to date on current trends and can dye, cut, and style you exactly how you want. Aveda salons preach the importance of education and ensure they can help you bring your vision to life.

Holistic Salon Approach 

Aveda salons are known for their relaxing, spa-like settings. When you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, sitting down in the salon chair can be a relaxing and cathartic experience. According to “Aveda’s philosophy is rooted in Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old Indian system of medicine emphasizing the interdependence of the mind, body, and spirit. By harnessing the power of nature, Aveda seeks to create products that enhance not only outer beauty but also promote inner balance and well-being”. Bringing more relaxation and positivity in your life can only lead to beauty both inside and out.
