How is it already August? In true Minnesota fashion, the summer has flown by and we’re already on the horizon of back to school season. Whether you’re heading to college or sending your children back to the world of lockers and textbooks, back to school season is a super busy, super exciting time—one that makes you want to freshen up and look and feel like your best, brightest self.
That’s where we come in! We’re masters of the refresh and are so excited to help you transform or update your look. Make the most of that “back to school” feeling with a few services and tips from us; even if you’re not hitting the hallways, you’ll look like the coolest kid in class.
Think about how to make your beauty routine easier.
Back to school season can be a bit of a runaround. From 8 AM classes or all-night study sessions to hauling the crew to school, it’s a lot of go, go, go. You want to look your best even when things are chaotic, so consider how you can make the mornings easier. Don’t want to worry about heat-styling your hair? Opt for a cut and products that enhance your natural texture so you can air dry. Trying to cut down on your makeup routine? Try a tinted moisturizer with SPF, a brow gel, and mascara for the basics, or invest in lash extensions so you can skip liner and mascara entirely. Ask your Cole’s beauty specialist to show you a few simple styles you can execute in just a few minutes for those busy days.
It’s time to chop.
We’re not saying you have to debut a bob or pixie cut, but summer has probably put your hair through it — from dips in the pool to highlights to styling for weddings. Book a cut to trim off any dead or split ends and you’ll feel refreshed and ready for what’s next.
Freshen up with a facial.
Just as your hair has been put through the wringer by summer fun, so has your skin! The best way to bring it back to life is with a soothing, rejuvenating facial service. Think of it like routine maintenance; in order for your skin to look its healthiest and most glowing, you need to do a little bit of work. Thankfully, your Cole’s esthetician will do all the heavy lifting and customize a facial just for you! All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the service.
Book a pedi or a massage before you hit the books.
Sure, your toes are probably going to be hidden in cozy socks and cute boots, but getting a relaxing pedicure before the craziness begins is a great way to unwind and pamper yourself— and so is a massage! After all, your shoulders will be hard at work hauling backpacks and books, so treat them to a little TLC in advance.
Stock up on supplies.
There’s nothing worse than when your go-to shampoo runs out, so reduce the need to run out and replenish by thinking ahead. If you’re going or heading back to college, liters are key to keeping your hair happy; they’re also the perfect gift for any college students in your life. You may also want to consider swapping your lightweight summer products for slightly more nourishing and moisturizing formulas as the colder months approach.
And don’t forget—from now until Labor Day, get 10% off equipment at your favorite Cole’s salon. It’s just another way we’re helping you head back to school (or into fall) feeling as fabulous on the outside as you are on the inside.
