“Rare Bloom” : Aveda’s Latest Make Up Collection

IMG_7503

We are so excited about the launch of Aveda’s “Rare Bloom” make up collection! Aveda have released this limited edition collection of fashion colours to compliment this season’s best trends.

Using plant power and natural minerals (not synthetic minerals made in a laboratory), Aveda has perfected the fusion between natural products and bright, on-trend colours. The strong lip trend isn’t going to go away in a hurry, and Aveda are on top of  that, with a bright “Magenta Berry” Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Colour (RRP $29.95), and an awesome lip liner to nail that crisp outline. For those a little shy, we have a much tamer “Sheer Peony” Mineral Lip Colour, which still delivers a fantastic colour. These are complimented by two bright shades of Rehydrating Lip Glaze (RRP $34.95), “Pink Hibiscus”, and “Fire Poppy”.

The collection also comprises of four brand new shades of Petal Essence Eye Colour. The shades are “Coriander”, “Plumeria”, “Indigo Sky”, and everyone’s favourite “Rose Gold”. These retail for $24.95 each. And to top it all off, a gorgeous Petal Essence Eye Definer, (RRP $29.95) in the most gorgeous shade of Turquoise that we have ever seen.

These are strictly Limited Edition, and are sure to go, so ask your stylist for your Complimentary Finishing Touch to try them out and have a play with these brave colours. We love what Aveda’s Global Artistic of Makeup, Janell Geason has done with her model below!

Cobaarz Kicking More Eco Goals with EcoHeads.

As many of our followers know, Cobaarz is an Eco Salon, not just by name but by our actions. We are constantly looking for new ways to take more environmental responsibility for our salon, and improve our impact on the environment through innovation and moving with the times.

We have done so by offsetting our already low carbon footprint (carbon neutral salon!), using energy saving light sources, using non-toxic paint and materials during the construction of the salon where possible, responsibly disposing of and recycling salon waste, using only sulphate free cleaning products, and supporting organic farming through our fair-trade coffee. Not to mention that by using only Aveda colours, shampoos and conditioners means that we are not poisoning the earth with traditional chemicals used by mainstream salons. But what about water?

Water use is something that as a busy salon we simply cannot avoid. However, there is an innovative new product that we are excited about that has been proven to drastically cut down water use. Introducing EcoHeads! This salon-only shower head allows us to double the pressure of the water, cutting down on our water use by up to 50%. Tourmaline Crystal filters inside each of our new EcoHeads provide softer water, eliminating chlorine and other minerals that would otherwise be deposited on your hair, ensuring a softer, cleaner, and less wasteful result.

Not to mention the super fine water holes provide you with an amazing scalp massage like no other! 

Guess Who Is Coming Back…

Remember this happy face? The team at Cobaarz Warragul is delighted to welcome back April Archer! April is a Warragul girl, Cobaarz born and raised. She moved to Perth two years ago and continued to enjoy her Aveda journey. 

But thankfully for us, all good things come to an end. After having a blast in Perth, April is ready to come home to Warragul, her family, and of course to Cobaarz. And we can’t wait to see what skills she has developed in these two years.

April rejoins our team as a Full Time Advanced Stylist on the 10th of September. 

Her appointment book is already filling up! Don’t miss out! Call 5622 2255 NOW to secure your appointment with April!

Photo Shoot = SUCCESS!

So. We had our photo shoot on Monday. This shoot was for two purposes, the main one being to create our images to enter in the national Aveda Colour Harmony Awards. The second was to create a collection that our team can proudly display in the salon, and know that it was all our own doing. I am very proud of my team’s efforts both in the lead up to the shoot and of course their work.

Tom McEvoy outdid himself shooting our work, and we cannot wait to see him add his arty touch to turn our images from photographs to art. This Melbourne-based photographer is 50% photographer, 50% artist in our eyes. We have given him free reign, and I must say we had a great time collaborating with someone as fun and creative as Tom. Melanie from Day Of The Doe helped with styling the shoot and providing some amazing props for us to use. Check out her skull art on instagram @dayofthedoe .

A big thank you to Tom, Mel, our spunky models, and of course my talented stable of stylists. Stay tuned for our art-ed up professional images, but for now here is a sneak preview of terrible quality iPhone photos taken by various members of our team on the day. These ones are going to look even worse once we see Tom’s shots!
