I’m all about Aveda. There’s something about the luscious smell that emanates from everything they create. It’s warm, earthy, and comforting. There’s no denying that epic hit of Aveda love that wafts into your nostrils when you enter every one of their places, be it a store, salon, spa, or Institute.
I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Carolie Estes, one of the retail managers at the shop at our local Aveda Institute, and graduate of the Tucson Aveda Institute.. At each institutes, students learn the ways of the Aveda philosophy. Great deals about – like a 60 minute facial for $35 bucks, or heck, for $10 more try a 90 minute facial. What a deal! Students and faculty make sure the experience is relaxing and memorable. Check out my interview with Carolie, and discover Aveda Lip Glosses!
Lip Gloss Addict: Why Aveda?
Carolie Estes : I believe Aveda is definitely the best beauty school, and I really wanted to learn about their protocol. Aveda is sees wellness and health as a part of beauty, and that was important to me.
LA: There are 3 kinds of gloss at Aveda. Tell me about the differences.
CE: The first is the Uruku Color Gloss ($16). It’s organically grown, and comes from the Uruku pigment. Aveda partnered with an indigenous tribe in Brazil. All of the reds and browns that you see in the pigments come from this plant. This partnership creates jobs for women, as the women harvest the crop. The Uruku Gloss, of all our glosses, I would say tends to be the most sheer. Still a lot of color, though.
