“Life always

has us

on the

go,

but our hair doesn’t have to reflect that.”


We have all traveled somewhere from time to time, and probably have the same travel gripes. Whether having your favorite hair products trashed at TSA or having to desperately use bad hotel products, Aveda offers a remedy to your travel frustrations.

Cutting Specialist, Dave Lilya at Level Salon states, “I understand being a creature of habit and am so thankful that I can always be consistent with my look anywhere I go.”

Hold that thought, even if you are not traveling, Aveda travel sizes are a great way to try a new product before making a greater price investment. Dave says, “I’m confident that you’ll never find a product from Aveda you won’t like, but it does help transitioning from one type to another before fulling investing into the full size product. The last thing I LOVE about Aveda Travel Sizes, is that they make GREAT gifts at an alternative price.  They really are perfect for small mix and match style gifts.”

Dave adds, “The one thing I love about AVEDA, is that you will never go wrong with any of the products you choose. Aveda is constantly looking to better its carbon footprint within the environment, as we’ll as to better you the consumer. Aveda has always been a Guest first mentality company and thats what we strive for here at LEVEL SALON. We are proud to be your Tampa bay Aveda Salon.”

How to Care for your Tape-In Extensions

Level SalonSpa Cutting Specialist and Expert extensionist shares with us these tips to care for your tape in extensions. 

1. To sleep, wear your hair low and loose. Do not wear your hair up or in a tight bun for sleeping. 

2. For longevity, keep conditioner and deep conditioning masques off the bonds. Use only on the ends of the hair.

3. Always blow dry the bonds after getting your hair wet to avoid any slipping.
