Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland – Women in today's workforce are continually facing challenges to stay on-top of their game. The long hours required to excell in many carreers combined with the demands of home life mean that many professional women often skip their regular visit to their salon in Kirkland or cutting back on services for lack of time. But it appears that these actions, while on their surface should help women advance in their carreers, can often hinder them. At least that is what top beauty industry colorists say. Take a look at the following article from one of the top hair colorists in the nation:
Is it time to update your color or cover that grey? is here to help! Color expert Sherry Ratay provides some tips.
Hair color could mean the difference of several rungs up the corporate ladder, says hair color expert Sherry Ratay.
Ratay, an expert who educates other colorists on how to achieve the right hair color, says career women today need to pay as much attention to color as they do to how they dress and groom themselves.
“No matter what stage in a woman’s career, hair color can work with or against her,” Sherry goes on to explain, “Unfortunately, there is still a gender imbalance in the work place, with women still under-represented in high-powered positions. For that and many other reasons, it is important to be aware of how they portray themselves in the corporate world.”
Here are some of Sherry’s coloring tips for women in the workplace:
For women graduating college, leave behind the bleached-blonde locks and stripy highlights and opt for a more subtle shade. Think blonde on blonde shade, like Jennifer Aniston.
Take in consideration your budget, availability and lifestyle. For those with limited time and budget, Sherry suggests a low-maintenance technique called “butterflies,” where she creates color through mid-lengths and ends, like Eva Longoria.
Cover those grays. Gray hair ages women 10 to 15 years. Need I say more? Understand and analyze your skin tone, eye color and existing hair color. Your hair color palette should follow along. Maintain healthy and shiny hair. And above all, have a professional appearance from head to toe.

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.

Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA – We all do it sometimes . . . . neglect the often small actions that we can take to make our lives better. Whether it’s due to system overload or confusion about what will actually make a difference in our lives, procrastination can leave us wishing that we had taken action. Take a look at this great over-all list of simple actions Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA found in Men’s Fitness Magazine to learn how some extremely small steps can make a huge difference in your life.
Look & Feel Your Best — All Day! – Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA
10 grooming tips to help you stay at the top of your game – Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA
by Renee Marchione
A smooth face doesn’t start and end with shaving cream. Use pre- and post-shave products. You’ll notice fewer ingrown hairs, less razor-burn irritation, and longer-lasting shaves. (visit Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA’s Aveda store to find some fantastic choices in products!)
Dandruff isn’t a good look on anyone—especially men. Product buildup, a dry scalp, and even stress are just a few reasons why flaking occurs. Thoroughly rinse out your hair with specialized shampoos from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA, and you can keep this problem under wraps.
Since you’re already applying a moisturizer from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA (right?) to your face, why not use one with SPF? Your everyday commute and dog walks can still cause sunburns, premature aging—and increase the risk of cancer.
In their 20s and 30s, no one wants to look like Steven Tyler, so start taking care of your skin now. Sport sunglasses to prevent sun damage (and excessive squinting), drink lots of water to keep hydrated, and use eye creams to prevent premature wrinkling.
- Stop lugging around a shampoo, face wash, and body wash in your gym bag. Simply throw an all-in-one product from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA in your bag or keep one in your locker, and you’re golden. An added bonus, everyone from Old Spice to Jack Black makes them.
- Gym rats and weekend warriors have all dealt with athlete’s foot at some point in their lives. Pack a pair of flip-flops in your bag to wear in the showers and around the locker room. Keep your feet clean and dry especially in between your toes. If you’ve already been infected, no worries—there are medicated powders and creams you can use to help heal.
- If you can smell your own cologne, you have too much on. Use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol and water to gently pat over any areas where you may have OD’d on your scent.
- Those nose hairs that creep out every now and then may not bother you so much, but they will bother your girl. With so many tools available right at the drugstore (Remington Personal Trimmer, $10), there’s no longer any excuse for an extra-long hair growing from your ears and nose.
- Growing a beard? Don’t use bar soap to clean it. Unless you’re going for hobo chic, leftover soap scum will cause your facial hair to look dirty. Use a hair conditioner from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA instead. The conditioner’s cleaning ingredients will wash away bacteria and instantly soften your beard. And always pat dry with a towel.
- A little hair product goes a long way. Want a shiny, wet look? Try using a gel product from Bella Sirena Salon & Spa Kirkland WA. If you want to sport a more messy, bed-head look, use a pomade to work through your locks.

The experts Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland bring you this Aveda video to show you how, using proper technique and quality product, you can achieve the beautiful, semi-matte complexion you’ve been seeking.
Prep, Color, Finish! With Aveda, Product + Technique = RESULTS! – Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland
Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland – Watch this short video to see how easy it is, with the right products and techniques, to achieve a gorgeous semi-matte complexion!
The secret to beautiful makeup is to properly prep the skin. Aveda’s Enbrightment line (available at Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland will not only allow your makeup to glide on more smoothly but also deliver s effective skin care results. In the video you see the use of our Brightening Correcting Cream (from Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland.)
After the Correcting Cream you will be ready for complexion color. You will want to use Aveda’s mineral tinted moisture (SPF 15 and oil-free)(both available at Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland.)
Using the Aveda complexion brush, apply tinted moisture to the face. The complexion brush makes it easy to build the coverage you want! Buff it out with a damp sponge for a well-blended look.
Next, use a bit of concealer and, using the complexion brush, apply the concealer to any areas that need extra coverage. Use a light patting motion to build coverage, a little at a time.
The next step, using the Inner light Foundation Brush with Inner Light mineral pressed powder (from Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland, is key to getting the semi-matte finish. This helps set the powder and reduce shine.
When you create a matte complexion, you want to finish with a soft wash of cheek color. With the Aveda Eurku bronzing brush, apply face accents using circular strokes from the apples of the cheeks, along the cheek bones and towards the temple.
Enjoy the finished look!

Hair Salons Kirkland: Prep, Style, Finish! Product plus technique gets results: Aveda Men.
The as one of the top hair salons Kirkland, Bella Sirena Salon knows that men’s scalps can produce twice as much oil as women’s and dirt and dead cells can build up in the leftover sebum, so let’s use Aveda Men Pure-Formance shampoo and conditioner together to sooth the scalp and get clean, conditioned, healthy looking hair. They’re great for daily use. As one of the top Aveda approved hair salons Kirkland, Bella Sirena carries the full line of Aveda products.
Moisture content matters: if hair is too dry, it’s hard to apply styling products evenly, but if hair is too wet, it dilutes the products and compromises performance. It’s also important to choose the right styling product for you hair’s length, texture, pigment and your styling objective. Ask your Aveda stylist at Bella Sirena hair salons Kirkland for advice. To shape hair and add shine, use Aveda Men Pure-Formance Pomade, which gives firm, pliable hold and high-shine to the hair, for more formal finish that you can shape and reshape.
With concentrated Aveda products, a little goes a long way. These products are carried at your top-notch Aveda hair salons Kirkland such as Bella Sirena Salon. Vigorously emulsify the pomade between your hands. Then massage it into the hair from roots to ends, starting in the back where the hair is thickest. If you have longer hair, you can brush the pomade through the hair to ensure even application. Just do not over-brush, or you’ll flatten the hair. Shape the hair with your hands until you get the look you want. If you want more shine, you can comb through the hair. You’ll end up with the high shine and hold of traditional pomade, without the paraffin or petroleum base. Because the pomade is water-based, it’s must gentler on the scalp and it also washes out more easily.
Hair Salons Kirkland Tips: Finishing
To finish, use Aveda Men Pure-Formance aroma spray, with certified organic essential oils of spearmint, vetiver, and lavender. You can mist it on, or spray a little onto the chest or forearms; wherever you prefer.
