Refresh Your Hair This Fall

The cooler, crisper air. The green leaves in Central Park morphing into gold, magenta and rust. Pumpkin-spice everything, everywhere. Fall is upon us, bringing a fresh (and fashionable) feeling. After that long, hot summer, keep your style game strong heading into boots-and-jacket weather with our autumnal beauty refreshers.

We get it. You’re ready for a color change—but a total commitment? If that’s asking a lot, Aveda Demi+ hair color is the way to take your new shade for a test drive.

This new formula from Aveda delivers vibrant color in just 5 to 20 minutes and is formulated to fade beautifully and naturally for up to 40 washes. And Demi+ is completely customizable, so your colorist can create a hair hue and intensity that is uniquely yours. It’s infused with conditioning botanical ingredients like castor and sunflower oils and jojoba, leaving hair with instant shine, so it’s softer and healthier than ever.

Summertime can be super sweet in many ways, but it can also be rude to your hair. From three months’ worth of sun, salt, chlorine and heat, hair at summer’s end is quite often—ahhh, less than cute. Get your hair back to living its best life with a holistic, balancing Aveda Botanical Therapy Treatment right at the shampoo bowl. Hair Masque Treatment and Botanical Therapy Treatments are for heavy-duty repair; the Botanical Therapy add-on is for a quick pick-me-up. All treatments use essential oils for nourishment and are customized to fit the needs of your distressed tresses.

If your hair could use a little more love outside the salon, Aveda’s Damage Remedy line is what’s going into your bag. Powered by quinoa to strengthen brittle hair, the shampoo and conditioner repair busted hair; the Intensive Restructuring Treatment provides deep-penetrating restoration; and leave-in Daily Hair Repair Treatment visibly restores health. Split End Repair fuses broken ends together while protecting from future splits.

With the advent of autumn comes the prospect of party season, right around the corner, starting when you’re trying on your Halloween costume and ending when you’re picking New Year’s Eve glitter out of your hair. Get your look ready now for the endless parade of parties, galas and family affairs, (not to mention all the photos of you that will be taken)…because preparation during the actual holiday season? Ain’t nobody got time for that.

If you want to achieve thicker, fuller hair by Halloween, switch now to Aveda’s three-step Invati Advanced system. This 98% naturally-derived formula exfoliates your scalp, strengthens hair from root to tip and reduces hair loss by up to 53%. Users do see an immediate improvement, but report the longer-term results kicking in about six weeks after starting the three-part daily regimen.

Now is also the time to master three or four special-occasion hairstyles to have in your back pocket that you can do on yourself at home (or at the office, or in a cab, or in a Starbucks restroom…no judgment). Here are a few party looks that are deceptively easy to DIY: a looped braid, a textured bun, half-up waves, a red-carpet ponytail, and Hollywood glamour waves. (Feel free to check out the tons and tons of other Aveda styling tutorials besides these.) Practice them enough to get comfortable with them, and have your go-to styling products on hand: Shampure Dry Shampoo, Air Control hairspray, the Aveda paddle brush, bobby pins, and elastics.


We saved this one for last because we know you don’t want to hear it, but seriously guys, a haircut is the best way to leave that summer damage on the cutting-room floor (literally). You don’t have to go for the full chop, but even a trim does wonders in an instant hair refresh. And, who knows? You might just decide to go for it and greet the season with an entirely new look…and if you do, we are here for it. Come into any Scott J location in Manhattan or Brooklyn and we’ll help you fall into autumn, beautifully.
