Get Effortless Summer Hair That Looks Amazing All Season Long


Summer is right around the corner and with the warmer, steamy temperatures comes the time to loosen up hairstyles and embrace the waves. The next time you book an appointment at Trixies Aveda Salon, ask your stylist about the American Wave trend. Developed by the one and only Nick Arrojo from TLC’s What Not to Wear, the hair style mimics the look of natural waves with curl patterns unique to each client.

The certified stylists who specialize in the American Wave services use natural ingredients to achieve the soft waves without any harsh chemicals or ammonia. The long-lasting natural wave texture is intended to deliver beachy curls that last for months. And before you have flashbacks to the tiny plastic curlers from your ‘80s perm days and the agony that came with sitting for hours with your hair soaked in chemicals, let’s just take a moment to enjoy the advances in beauty products and techniques. And one of our favorite perks of the new style: you’ll walk away from your American Wave appointment with hair scented like eucalyptus.

Caring for your American Wave hair this summer will be a breeze. The wash-and-go style can be achieved with a gentle towel dry, or if you’re in a hurry, opt for a few minutes under your blow dryer’s lowest setting. Some clients prefer to shower at night and let their hair dry overnight, waking up to a soft tousled look. No matter your shower routine, your hair is going to look fresh.

If you’re looking for volume control or a super easy summer do, the American Wave is exactly what you need to enjoy another warm, Des Moines summer. Ditch the curling iron for good and embrace the ease of the natural undone look.
