Summer is a big deal in Minnesota—we have three(ish) months to get all those trips to the beach, neighborhood block parties, and summer events like the State Fair in.
Here’s a breakdown of how you can look fab for some of our favorite Minnesota summer events:
Brighten up for Fourth of July Fireworks. Transition your rich, dark autumn and winter hair color with a few balayage highlights or take the plunge and go blonde to be just as bright as those fireworks in the sky! Brunettes can add caramel and honey tones to their color, J. Lo style, and redheads can try a brighter copper or strawberry shade. If you’re a blonde, why not try adding a little bit of platinum or champagne blonde to your shade?
Book your wax for the beach. Hey, it’s a summertime necessity. We offer premium waxing services to leave you feeling soft and smooth, whether you’re visiting us for a bikini wax or an underarm wax. All we ask is that you come in with 1/4 “ of hair growth for best results. We even offer men’s waxing services!
Fight the humidity at Valleyfair. Stock up on our favorite frizz-fighting products to be prepared for sun and fun. We love Bumble and bumble’s Don’t Blow It hair styler and Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight to keep our hair from puffing up like Monica’s on the Barbados episode of Friends. You know what we mean.
Switch up your skincare for a Twins Game. We can help you find your perfect summer skincare to protect your skin AND lips from those UV rays. Whether that’s a serum from Eminence Organics or Aveda’s reintroduced facial sunscreen, Daily Light Guard, we have everything you need in case you get caught on the Jumbotron. Kiss cam, anyone?
Freshen up your face for Ren Fest. Who knows what 16th-century skincare was like, but we’d love to help you reveal more radiant skin in the 21st-century with a light peel or microdermabrasion session. It’s a simple, efficient way to get rid of all the dead, dull skin that’s built up on your face over the winter.
It’s pedicure time after the State Fair. Flip-flops at the State Fair? We’ve all made that mistake. No matter your shoe of choice, you’ll need to pamper those callouses and dry heels after hours of walking around at the Great Minnesota Get-Together. Treat your feet to a pedi and a bright shade of polish to get your feet back in action.
