Having trouble deciding on how to cut and style your hair? Get some inspiration from the hottest Oscars hair trends. Celebrities walked the red carpet, sporting a wide range of styles — from loose, laid back curls to short and trendy pixie cuts.
Loose, Side-Swept Curls
One of the most popular hair dos at the Oscars was easily loose, flowing curls. Many stars also swept the curls off to one side for a slightly more distinctive look. Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Jessica Biel, Julie Delpy, and Miranda Kerr were just a few celebrities who opted for this glamorous yet relaxed look.
The best haircuts for sporting this particular look are long locks — or sometimes medium-length hair. Maintain long styles with relatively frequent trims. “Every eight to 12 weeks, ask your stylist to take off the minimum necessary to eliminate split end,” Oprah.com suggests. “Getting rid of split ends reduces hair breakage, and breakage is what makes hair look thinner at the ends (and shorter),” hairstylist Matt Fugate tells O Magazine. Use hair products, such as Aveda curl-enhancing and styling products, to keep styles looking as fresh and sophisticated as the day you left the hair salon.
Short Pixie Cuts Still In
Daringly short styles, such as the ever-popular pixie cut, also made waves at the recent Oscars ceremony. Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, and Anne Hathaway are three stars to recently rock short haircuts. “Nothing enhances a beautiful bone structure more than a cute short haircut. It’s feminine, alluring, classy and downright stunning,” celebrity hairstylists say. Another obvious plus side is that the short haircuts are low-maintenance, and relatively easy to style.
If you’re having trouble settling on a haircut or hairstyle, why not get some inspiration from some of Hollywood’s finest? Next time you head to an Aveda salon or spa, consider channeling some of the hottest looks in Hollywood like loose, side-swept waves or trendy and daring pixie cuts.
We made a couple of videos just to have some fun with images from our hair salons here in Denver. Here’s the one we did for our 9th Avenue location, Namaste An Aveda Concept Salon. Enjoy!
Aveda has a solution for dry hair, one of the problems facing many women…Aveda Dry Remedy.
For some women, it seems as if it doesn’t matter what they do, dry hair continues to be a concern. Like any issue, however, there are approaches you can take. You can find the solution for dry hair with Aveda Dry Remedy. What can this product do for you and the dry hair that you are experiencing?
According to independent laboratory testing, the power of Aveda Dry Remedy is easy to recognize. After just one use of this oil, it was possible to moisturize the hair instantly by 41%. It did not do so by stripping the hair of anything that it needed. It added a natural product to the hair which not only moisturized it; it left it soft and shiny.
The power behind Aveda Dry Remedy is the Buriti palm tree, an Amazonian palm that grows in Brazil. Local residents call this tree the “tree of life”, and rural communities gather the Buriti fruit from rivers where it falls. It has amazing qualities which allow it to be used safely as daily moisturizer for the hair. Since it is so effective at keeping the hair soft and moisturized, it is not necessary for Aveda Dry Remedy to be manufactured with unnatural silicone, as is the case with many competing products.
In Brazil, there is a saying, where there is Buriti, there is water. This is true, due to the fact that the Buriti palm tree grows in the area of the river. We recognize the fact that it is also true because of the moisture that it provides for the hair.
Do you have Winter Hair? Is it crunchy? If so, Namaste hair salons in Denver along with Aveda can help.
WebMD says, “Take a dry strand and gently pull both ends to stretch it. If it breaks easily, you don’t have enough moisture in your hair.” The article suggests that a better moisturizer might be the solution.
Although a lot of products say they’re moisturizing on the label, in reality they might simply coat your hair to make it feel softer. WebMD recommends looking “for products with natural oils” and to “stay away from shampoos with mineral oil and petrolatum, which keep outside moisture from getting in.”
Aveda offers not only a great moisturizer, Dry Remedy™ Moisturizing Conditioner, but also a Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo. These products feature buriti oil, which helps hydrate hair.
Some other tips?
1. Let go of some length. “Trim dead ends every six to eight weeks. especially if you use hot tools regularly. Stylists warn against snipping strands at home because dull scissors can fray your ends even more. Plus, cutting the back of your hair in a straight line isn’t easy!”
2. Beware of heat and use styling products. Although heat is the best way to get a sleek, styled look be sure to use a styling product to help protect your hair. If you have fine hair, set your styling tools to low. Medium and coarse hair can handle slightly higher temperatures.
3. Watch out for the weather. Wear a hat when the weather conditions are bad.
4. Don’t fry it with chemicals. Do you get perms, relaxers or permanent color? “Chemicals take away hair’s natural moisture and weaken the strands. If you have too many chemical treatments, your hair might turn dull and frizzy. Try to keep your salon hair color within three shades of your natural hair color. Hair color closer to your natural shade needs less processing. And try to space out your treatments.”
- In addition to Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner, use the Dry Remedy Treatment Masque once a week for more intense results.
And if you want to add shine daily, while controlling fly away ends use Aveda’s Dry Remedy™ Daily Moisturizing Oil. All are safe for color-treated hair!
These products will leave your hair soft, supple and shinny. 93% of women agreed their hair felt immediately moisturized and soft after using the dry remedy™ system* and enjoyed the natural aroma with organic bergamot, lavender and ginger lily.
*The system includes Dry Remedy™ Moisturizing Shampoo, Conditioner, Masque and Daily Moisturizing Oil.

For the 6th year in a row, your friends and family can enjoy Aveda gift sets – a magical combination of wonderful products that are beautifully wrapped in sustainably sourced, handcrafted paper from Nepal. These are gifts that will delight your family and friends, make a significant contribution to the lives of Nepali women and their families, AND make you feel good about giving them!
Watch this video to learn what this is all about.
At the top of the world in the Himalayas of Nepal, things are changing for the better for many families and the forests as well.
It started a decade ago, when Aveda began looking for partners to make beautiful handcrafted paper for our holiday gifts. We wanted paper that was sustainably sourced–and we found it – lokta bark paper from Nepal.
Aveda learned that the people of Nepal had been making Lokta bark paper since the twelfth century. It was used for royal decrees because it’s traditionally believed to last for 1,000 years. Today we use it to cover all of our gift boxes in green paper, all year long.
In our six years* of purchasing this durable paper, we have bought over 1,400,000 sheets, which has given employment to more than 4,900** people in remote villages with few opportunities for work. An amazing 91% of the paper makers are women, who give back to their communities and save money in cooperatives, ensuring a better future. 2,400 families have directly benefited from Aveda’s purchase of handcrafted paper. It has helped 5,470 children to attend school—many from very poor families who could not otherwise afford an education.
Our paper purchase has also benefited the environment. Forest groups help protect 34,000 acres of forest that provide Lokta bark for our gift set paper—which has received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. Our Lokta bark paper has also earned Wildlife Friendly certification, which means it helps protect the beautiful diversity of Himalayan wildlife. Protecting the forest not only preserves habitat but also fights climate change. This is a gift for all of us.
We believe you give joy with each gift covered in Lokta bark paper from Nepal.
*2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012. **Full and part-time.
Remember, these are limited-edition holiday gift sets. Each box is wrapped in the sustainably harvested, handcrafted Nepali paper.
It’s never too early to start stocking up. Gift sets, packages and stocking stuffers are available at all three Namaste locations: Namaste An Aveda Concept Salon on 9th Avenue, Namaste on Broadway and Namaste Pure Design Studio.
