At Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon, we believe that the small details make a big difference. Because we share this belief Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon is proud of our partnership with Aveda. Attention to detail including consciousness of environmental concerns and humanitarian efforts makes Aveda the perfect partner for Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon. An example of Aveda’s considerations can be seen in the materials used to package Aveda’s luxurious holiday gift collection. Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon would like to share the story of Aveda’s quest for the perfect material to wrap up Aveda’s holiday gift collection:
At the top of the world in the Himalayas of Nepal things are changing for the better for many families and the forest as well. It started a decade ago when Aveda began looking for partners to make beautiful handcrafted paper for our holiday gifts we wanted paper that was sustainably sourced and we learned that the people of Nepal have been making lope bark paper since the 12th century. It was used for royal decrees because it’s traditionally believed to last 1000 years.
Today we use it to cover all of our gift boxes in green paper all year long. Purchasing over 339,000 sheets of this durable paper; employing 3,800 people, 80% of whom are women, to craft it by hand. First they collect bark from lopde shrubs beating than cooking it into a special pulp mixture. This is pressed into screens were dried in the sun. Finally women die in paper green with non-toxic pigments.
More income for families means hope for a better future. Guma Pun is an example of the power of papermaking. The 23-year-old whose parents never went to school is now head of a papermaking enterprise. She is supporting her sisters and brothers so that they can get an education and supporting her sister so she can fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher.
It helps the whole village when women work because they give back to their families and the community buying medicine and sending children to school. With the income from papermaking 1000 families can buy the food their children need they can fix leaky roofs and by clothing. Protecting 34,000 acres of forest to provide bark for the paper also fights climate change is caused by deforestation. This is a gift for all of us but after four years of buying paper from the people of Nepal we believe the greatest gift is this.
Aveda the science of pure flower and plant essences.
If you are searching for that perfect gift that will not only delight your loved ones this holiday season but also create lasting change for the families of Nepal, stop by Bella Sirena Bellevue Salon to take a look at our luxurious gift collection.

Visit Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland for Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance™
Aveda and Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland have introduced ShaveCream and Dual Action After Shave, because men are “different by nature.”
According to Kurt Kueffner, Director of Men’s Business Development for Aveda, “Men’s skin is clinically proven to be different by nature than women’s skin. Men have a weaker skin barrier function, a 25% higher collagen density, a higher rate of moisture evaporation and higher sebum production than women.” Aveda addresses these concerns and has developed formulas specifically geared to meet men’s distinct needs and producing real results.
These products make shaving friendlier – both to a man’s face AND to the environment. Aveda’s Pure-Formance™ ShaveCream and Dual Action After Shave are more than 97% naturally derived and packed with plant-powered ingredients. The phyto-active blend includes phycosaccharide from seaweed extract, licorice root, sage extract, plai oil and tamanu oil.
In addition, the Aveda Men Pure-Formance™ Shave Cream and Dual Action Aftershave include argan oil, a conditioner that is sourced from a women’s cooperative in South Morocco. So, your purchase helps to preserve the endangered Argan Forest
Learn more about Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance™ at Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland, or give us a call at (425) 822-6040.

This is exactly what you need to keep your style going strong, whether you’re in the heat of the desert or the heart of the city.

* “The thing i like most about Control Force (found at Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland) is it’s hold. It goes on, it’s dry, it’s quick, it’s easy to work with, but the greatest thing is, it holds. It’s great for finishing, it’s great for working with the hair, it’s an awesome product. “
* “Talking to you guys about the new control force (from Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland). Love it, it’s great stuff, we’ve been using it a lot to put hair up. You know, where Air Control is a bit of a texture spray, Control Force (available at Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland) provides a solid, firm hold. It’s the good stuff, it’s the stuff that is going to make it stay up there. Use Air Control to get the hair where you want it, and then the Control Force just sticks it right there. It’s like a shield on the hair.”
* “well when you use it it’s probably for setting hair like we’re doing today, so once we get done with everything, we’re going to go through and wrap it all up.” ” The difference between air control and control force (from Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland) is air control is more of a flexible hold, where as control force is really more of your firm hold, and really you’re going to spray it and it’s going to stay.”
Stylists are amazed by what Control Force, available at Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland, does for hair. And they love that it has a net zero impact on the climate … through Aveda’s investment in renewable energy. It’s important to Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland, to our planet , and to all of us.
