The Balancing Power of Aveda Chakra Aroma’s



From the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra, Aveda has the aroma to bring balance to the 7 centres of spiritual power in the body. The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet.

NYC Fashion Week S/S 2016 – Shakira’s Adventure

New York Fashion Week 8th -15th September is one of the most influential Fashion Events in the world with 200 designers showcasing their collections. It was an intense and exhilarating time for Shakira, as she worked on nine shows as part of the Aveda Global Styling Team.

Shakira said “I worked with incredibly talented fashion stylists, models, photographers make-up artists and of course hairdressers. Successful collaboration was required to achieve the desired looks and ensure a successful show. Fashion week is a different world. One hair out of place could mean a complete redo. I felt this experience taught me a lot about working under pressure and trusting my skills and myself. You have to be resilient whilst physically, emotionally and spiritually strong to work on Fashion Week, it tests you. Would I do it again? Yes!”
