Silver hair ladies know that nothing is trickier or more time consuming then covering up their sparklers. And while some may choose to embrace their natural tinsel others go through a lengthy process of covering up. Many reach for boxed dye (YIKES) and others spend upwards of $60+ every 3-4 weeks to maintain in-salon! If this describes YOU then look no further! The Team at the Aveda Institute Portland is armed and ready to give you full coverage at budget prices!!

We had the pleasure of catching up with Salon Life student Alyssa and getting to know her a little bit more. Alyssa is not only a talented stylist but is also incredibly humbled and easy going. Alyssa likes to start the day by sipping on a cup of coffee in her jammies breathing in the beauty of life. A perfect day for Alyssa would include roaming around town with friends having a great laugh, ending with a musical jam sesh! Here is a little peek into what I got to learn about this fun loving gal.
