STRANDS OF SCARLET
Each year, once the snow melts and buds begin to take first bloom, a sea of new hues emerges, and we’re hungry for them. Gone (until October, anyway) is the flat and drab; spring is all about color and vitality. So, don’t be afraid to explore your fiery side. From light strawberry to warm amber to deep merlot, red is among the most favored hair hues this season. Take notes from celebrities like Blake Lively, Drew Barrymore, and Rihanna, all famed for rocking crimson-colored styles with panache.
And keep in mind that there are also subtle articulations of color ones that display both fire and nuance. Our services range from Single Process Color to Full and Partial Foil HighLights, from Face/ Top Lights to Hair Glaze (Color or Clear), and from Balayage Technique Customized Hand Painted Highlighting to color correction if you’re looking to rethink an existing hue application.
A breakthrough in cryotherapy technology allows for the shedding of a lot more than sartorial layers this spring. Cryoskin, a noninvasive treatment that can help slim, tone, and smooth the face and other areas of the body, originated in Paris five years ago and is essentially kryptonite for stubborn fat cells, cellulite, and fi ne lines and wrinkles. It works via a contrast of temperature; a massaging device first warms the targeted area, then gradually decreases the temperature to around 17°F, naturally destroying fat cells in the process. Because the technique can also improve microcirculation and collagen production, it can work wonders for the face, improving the appearance of aging skin and dissolving fine lines. So lay back, enjoy a 28-minute massage, and emerge lighter and more sculpted than before.
Statistically, people are living simply longer (the percentage of the world population over 60 is expected to nearly double between 2015 and 2050 from 900 million to two billion, according to the World Health Organization), but there’s also a shift in the perception of the aging process itself. What sociologists are referring to as the “ageless generation,” those in their early 40s and older, are increasingly resistant to traditional classifications (terms like “middle age,” for example), and so are also determined to maintain as much of their youthful vigor as possible. In fact, a recent study by the marketing agency, Super Human, found that 96 percent of surveyed women over 40 don’t feel traditionally middle aged, and four out of five believe the way society views that age bracket is antiquated and inaccurate. So, prepare for 60 to be the new 30, with a little help from us at Avanti Day Resort!
