About Aveda

Why we exclusively use and sell Aveda Products

We are honored to associate our salon exclusively with the Aveda product line, and know we are the best in the La Mesa area. When you enter our doors you can be guaranteed a commitment from us is for caring for you, the environment, and our planet with the highest dedication to service and sustainability.

Our employees continually undergo advanced education to bring the highest level of service to our customers. With a commitment to bringing out the absolute best version of you, training is conducted in the areas of hair cutting and styling, coloring techniques, as well as all body and skin care so your services are provided by an expert in their craft. The reputation of the Aveda training program is second to none with a commitment to its students, the environment, and most importantly, ensuring your satisfaction with all services.

We exclusively offer the Aveda line so you can continue your treatments at home. However, you may need a few reasons to commit before switching over to Aveda products, so this is why we use them in our salon (and at home ourselves!).

High Quality: Have you ever used a beauty product that just does not deliver? Maybe your hair feels dry or you had a waxy feeling on your skin? The great news is not only do Aveda products outperform the other beauty products, they actually over-deliver.

Eco-Friendly: Aveda uses what has been termed “green” ingredients. So, all of the products contain ingredients that are not only non-toxic, but also certified organic. Your body absorbs over 60% of the products it is directly exposed to so you want to make sure the ingredients are healthy (no carcinogens!).

And along the same green lines, Aveda is very conscientious about preserving our planet. There is a very strict set of rules for sustainability and commitment to renewable resources. This means that when resources are used, there is a process and plan to replace them and all habits are restored.

Aveda is a conscious company: You have heard the buzz about animal testing and the harm of the beauty industry on the environment. Aveda does not conduct any testing on animals. Additionally the packaging is earth friendly. Aveda proudly make the claim to be the first beauty packagine using 100% post-consumer PET (plastic bottles). Aveda packaging is made from plant based plastics and the company has a commitment to using renewable energy sources such as wind power!

We know that the decision to use a beauty product is a personal one and can often take several tries to find a line that works for you as an individual. We invite you to stop by or call the store to take advantage of samples and special offers. Most importantly, our expert staff looks forward to helping you select the products and services which make you look your best no matter how you are spending your day.

Do Aveda products contain parabens?

At Pret-a-Porter Salon & Spa, we share Aveda’s mission to care for the world we live in. Aveda is guided by a fundamental philosophy where health and safety are first priorities. Delivering a microbiologically safe product to consumers is one of Aveda’s most important commitments. Aveda’s mission and principles, on which the company was founded, have always steered us toward preferring pure flower and plant essences to petrochemicals. Because the Company constantly targets and tracks expanded use of plant-derived content in its formulas, Aveda has been actively researching plant-based alternatives to parabens and phasing in the removal of parabens from its formulae. Aveda no longer manufacture any products formulated with parabens. At our La Mesa salon we exclusively carry Aveda products.
