Ten months ago the announcement was made. Gila Rut had received the invitation of a lifetime, to present a 30 minute show at Aveda Congress 2015!

The opportunity we had been given had not been taken lightly. We knew this was a huge honor and our chance to shine in a GLOBAL ARENA. To share the stage with the leaders in our industry today! To share our story with over 3,500 Aveda professionals who had flown in from around the world!

These ten months were filled with plans and preparation. From designing the show concept to working with wardrobe and graphic designers.

The moment had arrived, time to shine! MAIN STAGE AVEDA CONGRESS HERE WE COME!

3 wonderful years

What inspires you as a stylist?

Nature often inspires me as a colorist. I love the way colors flow seamlessly in and out of each other, season to season. The possibilities are endless…..

What is your favorite trend in the hair world right now?

Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of silver and chrome colors. It is a very cool transition; to create grey instead of covering it up.

What is your favorite Aveda product and how would you use it on clients?

Beautifing Oil is my favorite right now. I like to mix it in with hand massages, facials, and even into my color. Every part of us needs extra moisture this time of the year and Beautifing Oil delivers!
