Aveda Rare Bloom Collection

Postet av Berit Torkildsen den 24. Feb 2015

I can't help to look for inspiration from Aveda, it was with them my career started twelve years ago, beachside in Florida.

Their Spring/Summer Collection, entitled Rare Bloom was inspired by the prairie, wildflowers, butterflies, everything nature has to offer.

“Sometimes it's not just about the latest trend – it's about taking a cue from the natural beauty around you," explains Aveda Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders. “The prairie couldn't have been a more perfect place to shoot this collection, blooming with all kinds of interesting wildflowers and buzzing with bees, butterflies and dragonflies."

Despite Antionette's claim not to 'follow trends,' one can't help but notice that their collection is full of them from 2015. I find it interesting that despite being miles apart, ie, Aveda (Minneapolis, USA) and Adam og Eva (Oslo), the parallels between this collection and ours are uncanny. In our current collection, we have The Pixie, a textured short crop, The New Mullet, The Baby Bob, and The Lob, to name a few. It is apparent that these looks are international and here to stay for the 'hair-year' of 2015.

Travel Broadens the Mind

Three and a half weeks at home in Florida with friends and family does the soul good. Well rested, I am back at Bislett, ready to perform some handy work!

While I was at home, we took a road trip to Spring Hill, on the west coast of Florida. While we were there, we visited Weeki Wachee Preserve, a natural spring, named by the Seminole Indians, meaning 'Little Spring' or 'Winding River.' There you can see 'mermaids' perform an underwater show, and take a boat ride through the springs, where manatees are often spotted. The color of the springs are beautiful, a mix between green, blue and yellow. Stunning.

When Sara was tired of her blonde locks and wanted to do something different, the color of the springs and the mermaids sprung to mind. The result was a few foils with a semipermanent hair color from Directions. I mixed a few in order to get that 'mermaid feel.' She loved it, as I hope you do too. (Oh, and I used a semipermanent gloss over her blonde to give it a more pearl like shine)

On a side note, Weeki Wachee Springs has been the setting for many movies, tv series, and music videos. One of my favourite happens to be by Supergrass, dear friends of a close pal of mine. Well worth taking a look at their video for Low C, they shot it all at Weeki Wachi, and can be summed up as a 5 minute documentary of the Springs.

How about some colour to brighten up your day?

Hair colour doesn't have to be 'natural' tones. For the past few years, hair trends have utilized all colours in the rainbow. Some types are permanent, some wash/fade after a few shampoos, but none are scary, and by all means, you don't have to be 'crazy' to try them! I have many 'conservative' clients with 9-5 jobs within all fields who have been bitten by the colour-bug.

Here are select few who have taken the plunge. The last group of pictures are of a client who didn't like the idea of having to prelighten her hair, so we landed on Great Lengths extentions, blonde and red to create a new look for her. It saves her hair from chemical damage and when she tires of it, all she needs to do is remove them!

Xmas in Florida!

Postet av Berit Torkildsen den 3. Des 2014

This holiday season, my family and I will be traveling to my parent's house in Florida for Christmas and New Years. We haven't been home for three years, and by now many of my friends are well aware that I am looking forward to some quality time in my childhood home with friends and family!

Since I will be gone for 3,5 weeks, I have opened my book up each day until our departure to make sure I get in most of my clients before this holiday season. If you cannot find an apt via our online booking, call the salon and ask to speak to me. I am already fully booked on several days, but I will try my best to shuffle my book to satisfy all your hair needs!

And to rub it in, I found a few pictures from Brevard County during the holidays! I have to say that a warm Christmas paired with my mum's traditional Norwegian Christmas Dinner is far better than this minus 5 degree weather!

These are some of my Christmas traditions. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season now matter where you are!

Love ,

A day in the life of an Adam og Eva Hair Stylist

Postet av Berit Torkildsen den 7. Nov 2014

I count myself lucky in life. Lucky in love, lucky with my health, and very lucky in regards to my workplace. It wasn't coincidence that I ended up in the loving arms of the Adam og Eva family, it was my FATE! I am grateful that each day my clients allow me to grow creatively, something that was a rarity back in Florida.

Yesterday my day was filled with inspiration, so I thought perhaps I would share it with you. Hopefully it sparks something within you, a new season, a new you.

Hope you all have a fab weekend.
