Feeling stressed about the holiday season? Us too. After visiting the newly opened AVEDA Experience Center at NorthPark, we’re feeling more balanced. Every day since then, we’ve balanced our morning with a spritz of the natural beauty brand’s “Intention” body mist. Around the holidays, everyone needs a little balance in their lives. One of our favorite takeaways from our visit, the power chakra spray is a blend of pure essential oils that balance your center of motivation (AKA an invigorating mist of organic lavender, fir balsam, lemon, and other pure flower and plant essences).
Chakra mists aside…you should know that the Experience Center is not a salon. The purpose of the space is for playing with the beauty brand’s Ayurveda-inspired products and learning how to use them firsthand. When you enter the center, you’re navigated through 10 Experience Zones – clearly, they’re going the extra mile to extend beyond retail. With men’s and women’s haircare (and a scalp consultation to boot!), skincare and makeup, body care, and aroma, it’s a zone to relax and rejuvenate in.
Sit back and enjoy a personal dry hairstyling session or a complimentary 20-minutefacial, customized to your hair, skin and body care needs. Inspired by ancient Ayurveda tradition, the Aveda Experience Center starts each facial by dry exfoliating, followed by the tulasāra radiant awakening ritual and a hydrating and firming cream. The whole visit was rejuvenating, to say the least. While we were there, we realized we were using our hairstyling products all wrong. We left with more knowledge on how to find our daily inner peace and how to keep our hair away from pesky flyaways and frizz.
