6 Ways to Get That Fresh "Back to School" Feeling

FALL IS A TIME OF REINVENTION - EVEN IF YOU'RE LONG PAST THE DAYS OF BACKPACKS AND BINDERS

There’s a certain magic to that “back-to-school” feeling that hits in late August. The days start to feel a little cooler and you may find yourself thinking about your fall wardrobe and hair style —or longing for the days when your biggest concern in life was picking out the perfect backpack. If you’re long past those dear old school days, don’t fret. You can still get the “back to school” feeling thanks to Evolve's salon services and Aveda products, and you don’t even have to buy any textbooks! 

1. Schedule a trim. Summer probably did a number on your hair, whether you were splashing in the pool or hitting up wedding after wedding. If your hair is feeling lackluster, book an appointment at Evolve for a trim or a deep-conditioning Botanical Therapy treatment. Say goodbye to any damaged and split ends. It’ll give you that “fresh and new” feeling you used to get when your mom took you to the salon for your back-to-school hair cut.

2. Fill up your “backpack.” Remember stuffing your school bag with the trendiest lip glosses and candy-scented lotions to share with your friends before class? You can still do that as an adult! If we were going back to school, we’d be filling our bag with Feed My Lips lipstick in Goji, a vibrant true red, and Honey Ginger, an easy everyday neutral. Don’t forget the Shampure Dry Shampoo for days when you NEED to hit the snooze one more time and a Cooling Oil rollerball for any tense moments spent hovering over your textbooks … or your laptop.

3. Embrace change. If you want a new hair color to match your fall wardrobe, ask your Aveda colorist about a Hair Color Shine Treatment. They’re quick services that deliver temporary (six-week) results and improve the condition of damaged hair. You'll see and feel the difference right away, whether you're glossing your natural color, trying a new color or coloring gray. Why not tweak your current shade a bit and go slightly warmer or darker for the new season? It will feel like a change without being too shocking.

4. Master a new style. If you used to spend hours in front of the mirror getting your bangs just right or flat-ironing your hair into perfect straightness back in your school days, you’ll remember how important a new hair style can be for your confidence. That said, you don’t need to throw out your back or tire out your biceps doing your hair every day; why not try these easier-than-they-look, five-minute braids instead?

5. Pick up some litres. Missing your dorm days? The best way to pretend you’re a freshman in college again is by stocking up on litre sizes of your favorite Aveda shampoos and conditioners — shower caddy optional. If someone you love is college-bound, you’ll make their year by gifting them a set too!

6. Keep the summer vibes alive. If you’re really not ready to let go of “summer vacation,” don’t! Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo and Conditioner’s juicy-floral aroma of tonka bean and certified organic orange and ylang ylang smells just like summer and will keep your hair feeling wildly soft and sweet all year long.

Survive the Dog Days of Summer

They call them the dog days of summer — that stretch between late July and late August where the weather is hot, hot, hot and you’re ready for a little relief. We’re big fans of summer time, but the need to chill out on a 95 degree day (or more) is essential, so if you need a quick cooldown when the temperature skyrockets, try these go-to summer products.

Cooling Oil Balancing Oil Concentrate
Keep a rollerball of Cooling Oil with you at all times in the summer months for a quick fix of cooling aromaology wherever you may be; you can even roll it on to reduce tension. We use certified organic peppermint, blue chamomile and naturally-derived menthol to refresh your senses deliver a burst of cooling refreshment. Pro tip: Apply a little on the back of your neck or on a pressure point on a hot day to mimic the feeling of a light breeze. Ahhhhh.

Peppymint
A longtime Aveda favorite, Peppymint can be used as a quick breath refresher (just a few drops on your tongue will do it) or a minty mouth rinse when diluted in your water. It may be small, but its blend of cooling peppermint and anise packs a big punch.

Rosemary Mint Body Lotion
When it’s really hot outside, the last thing you want is a heavy body lotion. Rosemary Mint Body Lotion is lightweight and invigorating to revive and refresh your skin, making it the perfect choice after hours spent in the sun.

Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser
After a long, hot day in the sun, cleanse your hair and skin with Sun Care. The color-safe formula gently removes chlorine, salt and product residue, while tamanu oil and organic coconut oil comfort your skin. The Sun Care aroma of certified organic neroli, ylang ylang and cistu (a flowering plant) feels summery and elegant at the same time.

Summer beauty can be low key and effortless, but the sun and surf can take it's toll on your skin and hair.
