Sunflower Salon and Spa offers Aveda products in Brookings for a reasonable price.

“All our products are 97 percent natural product, and because we only carry one line, our stylists are specialized in that product,” said owner DeeDee Seurer.

In order to become a natural product, the product only needs three percent of natural products. Aveda products have 97.

Their packaging is also 80 percent post consumer waste.

“By using this product Aveda is encouraging clients to use refillable containers, to make less waste out there,” said Seurer.

The front desk attendant, Jesse Johnson said, “we carry all the Aveda products, from hair care, to face care, to make-up.” Sunflower Salon and Spa also carries OPI brands.

All of the products used at the salon are Aveda. Even the hair coloring products used are safer and natural.

“I’m kind of like a kid in a candy store [here],” said Johnson.

The salon also offers a private atmosphere for their clients if they have a large party that is coming in.

“Bachelorette parties, or sororities can come in after seven when we are closed, and we can do pedis, manis, facials, haircuts, whatever they want. We can specialize, too. They can bring in wine or something like that,” said Johnson.

Aveda goes to the tribe Yawanawa, in Brazil, to get their pigment for a lot of their products. This pigment, Urukum, allows the tribe to stay afloat after losing some income because of poachers.

Located on South Main, in the new mini mall, they also offer ten percent discounts for students who attend SDSU every day but Saturday.
