Summer Hair Prep – Styles and products to help you look your best this summer

It’s almost Summer! Is your hair ready? When it comes to this season of the year, we recommend low maintenance hair styles for the summer that don’t require a lot of styling. The sun can cause our hair to become dry and brittle leaving us with a not-so-great look and split ends. Simple things like regular trims, easy styles, and the right products will ensure your hair looks and feels fresh all summer long. Keep reading for our top tips and tricks!

Popular Summer Styles

1. Bobs

Short hair screams low maintenance, and that’s what we want for the summer! A bob is a fun and fresh way to change up your hairstyle for the summer. It’s fast and easy to style, and short locks will keep you feeling cool!

2. Mid-Length Cut

A mid-length cut gives you several style options while still being low-maintenance. Think beachy mermaid waves… It’s the perfect length for quick and effortless styles all summer long!

3. All About Bangs

Bangs are an easy way to create style with no heat. Bangs help create a styled and layered look perfect for the summer. There are a few options when it comes to picking a bangs style. Our stylists can help you pick one that will perfectly frame your face for summer!

4. Bring on the Color

Creative colors and patterns are a hot trend for summer. If you’re looking to make a statement and have a little fun this summer, try a new color or colors in your hair. Our experienced stylists will help you pick a color that will complement your skin tone and add fun to your style.

Products for Summer

Sun, sweat, humidity, and chlorine all damage your hair during the Summer months. But you don’t have to let these elements ruin your Summer fun! We have a few products that will help protect your hair during the summer and keep it looking shiny and healthy.

Garbo’s is offering 25% off all Aveda products May 13-21, so stock up for summer! We’ve linked a few below for you to check out!

1. Use a High Quality Conditioner

Avoid washing your hair everyday. Shampooing dries hair out and removes the natural oils from your scalp. To help keep your hair moisturized and prevent dryness and damage use a high quality conditioner. Garbo’s has some great options including this one from Aquage.

2. Add Oil to Your Hair if Using Heat

Heat dries out your hair and causes frizz. If you’re using a blow dryer or curling iron to style your hair, apply an oil to help reduce split ends and strengthen your roots. This product and this product are two great options you can buy in store or online.

3. Hair Mask

Incorporating a hair mask into your routine is a great way to help keep your hair healthy during the summer. A hair mask will help keep your hair looking shiny, soft and less frizzy. A mask is also great for your scalp and for strengthening your hair. This one from our own line and this one from Moroccon Oil are two great options

4. Color-Treated hair products

Color-treated hair and summer elements do not mix well! If you have color treated hair, protect it from direct sun when possible. Use products specifically created for color treated hair to protect your hair and its color. This color safe shampoo and conditioner from Pulp Riot are two great choices.

We offer an Aveda Signature Facial which includes a peel. Facial peels reveal softer, brighter, and more rejuvenated skin.

Tips for Healthy Winter Skin!

The winter months are here which bring along dry skin as a result of the air becoming cold and dry. Simple changes in your skincare routine can help prevent issues that arise with dry skin. We talked to one of our estheticians, Holliday, at our Regency location to get more information on what you can do to combat any dry skin issues you may experience this winter.


  1. Add a Vitamin C oil or serum to your routine in the morning and a hyaluronic serum at night.
  2. Do not over moisturize as that will cause your skin to want more.
  3. Hot showers, tubs, and baths can dry out your skin when the weather is cold.
  4. Make sure you are using a liquid soap body wash in the winter, regular soap will leave a residue on your skin which can lead to dry, inflamed, and irritated skin.
  5. Remember to be gentle with your skin during cold months!
