Leading Aveda Artistic Director, Jon Reyman, Trains Mood Swings Salon Stylists in the Latest Advanced Hair Styling Techniques for 2010

Tempe, AZ – January 15, 2010 – Jon Reyman, top AvedaTM educator and former Artistic Director for Aveda’s newest advanced educational facility in New York, will visit Tempe’s Mood Swings Salon and Spa on Sunday, January 17 to train the stylists in the latest hair styling techniques and trends for 2010. Mood Swings, the first AVEDA Lifestyle salon in Arizona and named the “best trendy salon” and one of the “Top Ten Fastest Growing Salons in the World” is known for bringing in top talent to keep their stylists up to date in the hair fashion world.

Reyman who is the lead stylist for fashionites Oscar De La Renta, Perry Ellis and Ralph Lauren, will be spending the day with the stylists to practice advanced hair styling techniques.

“We’re excited to have a renowned and skilled talent like Jon Reyman conducting our next training,” said, Angela Toepel, co-owner of Mood Swings Salon. “Being located in Tempe, and serving surrounding areas such as Mesa, Chandler, and Scottsdale, our clientele expect the edgiest haircuts and have come to rely on our knowledge to be able to consult with them and provide them with just that. We take our training very seriously, and that is why we have carved out a full day where we can sit down, practice on models and learn additional advanced techniques that we can then bring to our clients.”

According to Reyman, “at the end of 2009 we saw pony tails and cleaner hair that is geometric as the most popular look and frizzier and fuller hair were out. The economy has changed things in that people want to look more put together and the hair styles are reflecting that by having cleaner lines.”

Mood Swings stylists will be training on what is in style for 2010 and will be working to share their knowledge with their guests. With ever-changing needs from its clients, based on ever-changing styles—as its name suggests, Mood Swings strives to offer the best in health and beauty services, products and techniques.

“I would say we want to stay on top of the trends,” said Toepel. “We strive to stay one step ahead of the rest when it comes to personal attention and service, and knowing what the latest styles are helps us to remain top notch in customer service and consulting. When a guest comes through the door, we want to provide them with an escape from the stresses of everyday life and make them feel beautiful.  Mood Swings is committed to making it so that you won’t find more knowledge or finer services anywhere—and that includes Meccas such as London, New York or Los Angeles.”
