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.

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.

The solution to provide structure to the most unruly hair by Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland
Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland and Aveda bring a solution to provide structure to the most unruly hair while caring for the environment is its Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray, available at Bella Sirena Hair Salon Kirkland. Since it offers a very substantial hold, you won’t be compromising performance. Better yet, Control Force has a net zero climate impact, so you won’t be compromising your green values either.

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.
You just heard some of the great reviews Aveda got at fashion week:
* “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.

The Soft Power of Obama’s State of the Union Tie
January 26, 2011 at 11:13AM
by The Fashion Editors
Maybe it’s a good thing, or quite possibly a bad thing, that the most controversial thing about Tuesday night’s State of the Union address was the color of the president’s tie. It was purple (or if you want to get technical about it, lavender), and as much as we admire his symbolic commitment to bipartisanship — no red or blue for this guy — there’s some substance to his style.
A bit of history: As far back as Roman empire, the rich and powerful would show they were rich and powerful by wearing clothes dyed in Tyrian purple, a shade derived from the expensive and rare boiled shells of the murex sea snail. After the whole decline and fall debacle, the color Continue reading “The Purple Power Tie?” »

Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland invites you to take a look backstage with Aveda at Rodarte, to see a snippet of New York Fashion Week Spring 2011.
The collection is all about Northern California, 1970’s suburbia. The look is organic and youthful, with the hair side-swept and a bit “tousled.” The volume is created by the way someone would play and arrange their hair on their own, so there are a few knots and stray bits!
Get ready for Spring … with Aveda! And don’t forget the Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
Visit the Bella Sirena Salon Kirkland to get your own youthful, stylish look!
