You’ve heard of Aveda and it’s global reputation for stellar (and environmentally friendly) hair, skin and body care, but did you know we have a local Aveda salon right here in Perkins Rowe? We sat down with Christina, the manager of Paris Parker to get the story on all things Aveda and beauty.

What do you want customers to know about your store?

We are totally focused on our guests—we work to deliver an exceptional experience every single time. Our whole team is willing to go that extra mile to make sure guests leave feeling beautiful, inside and out. And we’ve got the awards to back it up—we’ve been named the Best Hair Salon by 225 Magazine four times, and Elle Magazine named us as one of the top 100 salons in America (you can check out all of our awards here!).

Paris Parker is unique in that we are both a family owned business and a part of a larger organization with a beautiful set of standards. Our team is always learning, evolving and keeping up the trends—you can sit in any chair here and know your stylist has gone through extensive training and put a lot of time and love into their craft.

What’s your favorite aspect of being at Perkins Rowe?

I love the sense of community we have at Perkins Rowe. From all the amazing businesses, to the fabulous residents and the shoppers, there are good vibes all around. It is truly a one-stop-shop for all your shopping, creative and beauty needs—whether you want groceries, books, a killer new look, a movie or drinks with a friend, it’s the perfect place to be.

What Paris Parker products and services are trending right now?

Color services are always trending, and now that we are deep into fall, people are going for the rich, warm tones of the season. Guests are also loving lash extensions right now (we’ve heard them described as “LIFE CHANGING” quite a few times)—these extensions look gorgeous on everyone and reduce your get ready time in the morning because your eyes will pop on their own. And people absolutely cannot get enough of Aveda’s new Texture Tonic spray. It’s the go-to to get those coveted beachy waves, and it’s made with Epsom salts and sugar, which keeps hair from drying out.
