Long, hot, humid days can be a pain for any hair type, but don’t fret about your summer hair! We have compiled a list of the trendiest summer-proof and low maintenance hair for summer.
1. Loose Curls
Loose piecey waves, a la Zoe Saldana, can be achieved by curling 1-inch pieces with a curling iron, or by sleeping with wet braids in your hair. Finish with Be Curly hairspray.
2. Smooth Ponytail
Hayden Panettiere fights summer frizz with a sleek ponytail. How to achieve this look: Start with smooth infusion shampoo and conditioner. Apply smooth infusion glossing straightener and blow straight with a Mason Pearson brush. Use the Mason Pearson brush to create the smooth ponytail look, before securing the binder, add some volume at the crown with Volumizing Tonic.
3. Long Bob
Transform this sleek haircut into a full-blown summer look with a blonde sun-kissed balayage.
4. Low Buns
This smooth polished style is very low maintenance for all day wear.

If you are considering putting color in your hair, here are 10 things you need to know before committing to your new look:
1. A one-step color consists of tinting all of your hair a different tone or level. A permanent one-step color should be retouched every 4-6 weeks. Permanent color is the ONLY way to get complete grey coverage.
2. Coloring your hair will change its texture. Hair is softer and healthier after a color treatment. Grey hair feels much less wiry and is easier to manage.
3. Color can't lighten color. Once committed to a permanent shade, the option to lighten the hair becomes a 2-step process. Natural hair has the ability to become 5 shades lighter without bleaching. If you are debating between 2 shades, start with the lighter image, you can always go darker next time.
4. Aveda has a demi-permanent hair color line that is 99% natural, lasts 6-8 weeks, and is ammonia free. If you are going darker without needing grey coverage, I recommend a demi-gloss to keep options open and hair smooth and shiny.
5. Bleach actually DOESN’T damage hair (IF used properly). Breakage occurs from the chemical overlapping itself or poor time management. Bleach can be formulated to work as slow or fast as an artist desires. I believe Aveda Enlightener is the most gentle bleach on the market. With natural buffers and plant extracts hair is protected during the lifting process.
6. Sun and shampoo are the two main reasons hair color fades. Protect your new look by shampooing with Color Conserve Shampoo. Letting your color go from wet to dry in the sun creates a high risk of fading. Aveda Sun Veil keeps hair protected for 16 hours and leaves awesome finish on the hair.
7. Balayage consists of hand painting highlights to create modern dimensional color. Balayage is the softest way to introduce color into your hair. One Ombré or Balayage service can last you all summer.
8. A new color should come with a maintenance plan. Most colors are maintained differently than they are created. Meaning you may spend more time and money initially to set it up your new look, but once it is installed, appointments become short and sweet. Most of my guests balayage their hair three times a year. They may maintain a one-step color more regularly in order to cover grey, manage dark or light new growth, or change their tone and add shine.
9. All Aveda color is customized individually, and every formulation is perfectly personalized. Colors consist of bases and tones expertly blended precisely for you.
10. Color and Cut Consultations are always complimentary if you have more questions before you're ready to ready to make a change!

"Punk Chaos to Couture" was the theme of this year's Costume Institute Gala. We loved the smokey eyes, spikes + studs, druzy jewelry and edgy hairstyles. So we thought we would try out some of our favorite punk trends!
Punk Hair Inspiration: Punk Hair Our Way:
Step 1. Wash hair, use Phomollient and Pure Abundance spray liberally
Step 2. Blow hair dry, at 70% dry paddle brush completely straight.
Step 3. Section from an inch above the temple, in an arch shape down head to about an inch below the ear.
Step 4. This braid is called an "on the scalp" or "cornrow". You begin as any French braid tucking pieces under each other instead of over. Braid all the way down using a band to tie off the ends.
Step 5. Use control force to spray hair and rough up the texture.
Smokey Eye Inspiration:
Smokey Eye Our Way:
The (super easy) Winged Smokey Eye
Step 1: Use the Damone Brow Highlighter as a base on the entire lid and up to the eyebrow.
Step 2: Line the top lid with Aveda Petal Essence eye liner. Apply in a thick line along the entire eye.
Step 3: Use the Aveda Smudger Brush to smooth the line and extend the liner into a cat eye.
Step 4: Crease lid with Aveda eye shadow. (We used Aura Petal Essence eye color here on Kathy.)
Step 5: Highlight inner eyes using Damone Brow Highlighter again.
Step 6: Finish with Mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Spring has sprung! And so has one of the most fun trends of the year; the 60's!
From the hair, to the makeup to the patterns, the 60's are our inspiration for spring!
Louis Vuitton brought bright and bold to the runway this season. Bright solid colored
checkers as well as black and white was a huge trend at Louis Vuitton.
At Marc Jacobs, we see 60's beauty back in full swing including; thick graphic eyeliner,
big lashes, sharp brows, nude lip, hair teased at the crown with a severe side-part.
60's hair and makeup trends were also prevalent on models at Moschino and Louis Vuitton:
big eyelashes and side parts as well as volume at the crown of the hair.
Bold, bright colors and prints were a staple at Moschino. The 60's style brings
back bold colors and does away with the pastel.
Watch out for fun mod 60's-inspired accessories this spring!
Big thanks to Joel Gunderson for trend-spotting the 60's with us!
Allen Ruiz, Style Director, Global Artistic Team AVEDA, recently visited Juut!
Allen Ruiz, one of the most sought after educators in the industry spent an entire day sharing his knowledge and expertise with several Juut Artists.
These lucky Juut Artists had the opportunity to spend the day with Allen learning new layering techniques and styling tips.
Larissa Wong, Jen Hughes and Woody Theis were able to assist Allen during the class as the Artists began using the newly mastered cutting techniques. Allen often leads the New York Fashion Week shows that Larissa, Woody and Jen attend with Aveda.
The Juut Artists were happy to see that Allen is an inspirational educator among young and innovative hairdressers and a globally recognized artist.
Allen has worked with Aveda for more than 18 years, collaborating on the Company's global marketing campaigns, manufacturer advisory panels and trend collections. He is the owner of Jackson Ruiz SalonSpa, in his native Austin, Texas. In 2010, Allen was named North American Style Director for Aveda. Allen was named International Stylist of the Year at the 2011 Canadian Mirror Awards.
We feel so honored to have hosted Allen for the day at Juut as a part of our continued effort to provide the highest level of education possible to our Artists.
This is Pam, a Juut guest of Jo Ladue, who began using the Invati system about 10 months ago. Here is her story:
"I have been using Invati for about 10 months and I love it! I use it everyday.
I use a small amount of the exfoliating shampoo and thickening conditioner daily. As recommended, I use four sprays of the scalp revitalizer on each side of my head once a day for a total of 8 sprays.
The more I used Invati the healthier my hair got. I noticed that could use less product and could still get the same effect. I use such a small amount that the conditioner and shampoo last me about 4-5 months!
I have tried many hair-thickening products in the past, and I didn’t get the same results as I got with Invati. Additionally, I have not colored my hair since I started Invati, and I feel like my hair is the healthiest it has been in over a decade!
I love the way invati has made my hair look and feel. I feel more confident with my hair than I have in a very long time and I would recommend it to anyone in my same position!"
We know Valentine's Day is on a Thursday this year, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve to get glam for the night and celebrate love!
Don't forget to book your blowout (starting at just $15), wax, makeup and all things gorgeous for Valentine's Day (or single ladies night out)!
In the meantime, here are a few facts you didn't know about Valentine's Day, men & relationships:
1. Why did you decide to get into the beauty industry?
I decided to get into the beauty industry because it provides opportunities to express one’s creativity while making people feel great. I have always had an interest in fashion and music and I feel that great hair always plays big role in those areas.
2. What is your favorite part of the industry?
I’d have to say that my favorite part of this industry is working with amazing artists on photo sets and fashion shows. From those I am able to push the bar of creativity, get inspired and bring that excitement back to the salon to share with my guests. Then, together create a look that is both fashionably current and suitable for the individual guest.
3. How did you begin your journey with Juut Salonspa?
After moving from L.A. I visited many upscale salons in the Twin Cities. I was very impressed with the way Juut stood out. There is an extreme attention to customer care and ongoing education opportunities for Juut’s staff. When I first walked in, I felt at home.
4. Who is your style icon?
My style icon is David Bowie. He has reinvented himself countless times, from the way he looked, to his stage persona, to his music style. He had always done it well.
5. What’s the most exciting thing you’ve done as a hairstylist?
I have had the opportunity to travel globally teaching haircutting classes, working at fashion shows and photo shoots. The things I have seen and learned while traveling have been most exciting.
