Special thanks to Luis Gonzalez owner of Vida Salon for partnering up with me on this blog post.
Happy Wednesday guys!
I’m so happy to finally share the behind the scenes of my summer makeover with all of you! As you know, I love going to Vida Salon here in Denver. Luis Gonzalez the owner has been my hair stylist for the past 4 months and I’ve personally never being happier with my hair!
And since we met we talked about doing something fun and different for summer! I knew I wanted to go for a short hair cut but it took me a while to finally make the decision! It’s been three weeks since we finally cut and I must say, I’m ready to go shorter! I’m obsessed with how my hair looks, the color is a dream and I love how texturized it looks when I curl it.
After I came back from Mexico my hair was extremely dry and very damaged from all the sun and sea salt. I was definitely ready to make the change and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
Luis is a genius when it comes to color and he gave my hair that sun-kissed look I was going for!
One thing I love about Vida Salon is the treat I always receive. They make sure I feel like home and they take amazing care of their customers. They will always treat you with a drinks, oil neck massages before getting started with your hair, and hand massages while you are getting your hair done! Their tea is incredible and I absolutely recommend you to give it a try!
So, while I was having my tea we went through some pictures of hair cuts for inspiration and found the one that work best for me. We decided that we wanted to go for a long textured bob. Shorter in the back, longer in the front! Here you can see how I’ve been styling my hair lately and I’m obsessed with it!
These are the oils they usually use for the neck massages. They all smell like heaven! Click on each name to get access to them:

The Stress-fix soaking salts are beyond words! Their aroma is incredible and is proven to reduce the feeling of stress with certified organic lavender, lavandin and clary sage formulated using the science of aromaology and the power of pure essential oils.
During the styling process Luis used different products! The Aveda Air Control picture above is one of my favorite! And here are the products we use, which I also use on a daily basis:
My in-shower Aveda must-haves consist of :
The Pramãsana Purifying Scalp Cleanser which I apply right before getting my hair wet. This product is amazing because as we know shampoo is for the hair, but this cleanser maintains your scalp in healthy conditions while balancing sebum levels and exfoliating it and removing all the pollution.
Brilliant Shampoo and Conditioner . After trying different Aveda shampoos and conditioners I finally found the one that truly works for my hair type. These two products leave my hair feeling/smelling amazing while keeping it brilliant and smooth.
Dry Remedy Moisturizing Mask. Since my hair is always treated with color, keeping it moisturized is key and every time I wash my hair I leave this mask on for at least 5 minutes. You can see results immediately. My hair feels soft, supple and shiny instantly after using it.
These are my after-shower must-haves!
Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair. I try to use this leave in product at least three to four times a week. I like to alternate it with the Color Conserve Daily Color Protect and I love how it really helps maintain my hair in good conditions. It Detangles and helps protect from breakage and damage due to heat styling.
Color Conserve Daily Color Protect. I love how this product helps my hair color stay the same for a long time. It smells amazing and it instantly intensifies color radiance. Seals and smooths the cuticle for increased shine.
Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother. This product is key! I know it sounds like I use many products but believe me, each one adds the perfect touch to having healthy hair. I always do something to my hair, I either straighten it or curl it and this smoother gives my hair a soft surface to make the styling process much easier and faster.
Air Control Light Hair Spray. This hair spray has Net-zero impact on the earth’s climate! It’s soft, eliminates static and it’s long lasting! I especially use this spray to add volumen and texture to my hair.
Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil. This oil is the last step. After styling my hair, I just apply two drops in the palm of my hands and apply just to the ends. It instantly moisturizes my hair by 41%. So, I never leave my house without using it!
Hope you guys enjoyed all of these pictures! Going to Vida Salon is always son fun! I love it because Luis totally understands what I always want and I’ve never left that place feeling unsatisfied.
