Q. What hair colors and cuts are in style for the holiday season?

A. “Eclipting hair coloring is the latest trend,” says Marie Flock, co-owner of Sitara Salon & Spa along with her husband, Kim. “Eclipting keeps hair darker around the face to create a frame, while fine-weaved foils on top create a seamless blend of color and style that is here to stay.” She says the shattered bob is also a favorite seasonal trend. With this classic cut, you can enjoy the versatility of your texture by wearing your hair wavy, coiled or even stick-straight.

The perfect gift. Family gatherings. Thanksgiving dinner. These words evoke joy and agony in the hearts of millions. The pressure to create the perfect holiday experience can take its toll on the best of us. In fact, statistics say that despite all the comfort and joy, the majority of us stress about some aspect of the holiday season. 

Now try these words on for size: nature, beauty, pampering, relaxation. This is what you’ll find at Sitara Salon & Spa, an Aveda Concept Salon located in Onalaska, Wisconsin.

Flock and her team have provided a few more ideas to help you look and feel your best throughout this holiday season.

Q. My facial skin always gets dry during the colder months. What can I do to keep it moisturized and beautiful during the holidays?

A. One of the most exciting launches for Sitara this year is Aveda’s new Dual Exfoliation Facial Peel. This is Aveda’s latest advancement in noninvasive, skin-renewing treatments. It delivers immediate, visible results. You will notice improved skin texture, clarity and radiance, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin. 

Q. My fingernails get dry and brittle around Christmastime. What can I do to keep my hands and nails looking nice?

A. Massage Aveda’s Beautifying Composition Oil into your cuticles and nail bed while enjoying the oil’s uplifting aroma of certified organic rosemary, lavender and bergamot. It’s also great for removing makeup, adding to the bath, and using as an all-over moisturizer. For dry hands (and body), try Aveda’s new limited edition Candrima Body Moisturizer. Candrima, meaning “moonlight” in Sanskrit, refers to the beautiful white bloom of ginger lily, a star essence in the aroma. (These also make great gifts for someone special.)
