The strand wranglers at À La Mode Salon intensively condition and smooth locks with professional treatments lavished on hat nests in a sunlit, earth-toned studio. The formaldehyde-free Juvexin keratin treatment polishes manes with a cocktail of smoothing proteins, peptides, and jazz. By unwrinkling the surface of each hair’s shaft and bolstering its strength, the treatment leaves locks less likely to tangle, cooking up a cranial plate of smooth, manageable scalp spaghettis. It also conditions hair as it hydrates, fortifying tresses until they become less breakable and more able to withstand heat and heads’ spicy thoughts.
The f450 treatment from Thermafuse drenches follicular fibers in amino acids to make strands more manageable during a two- to three-hour process that, unlike a regular keratin treatment, involves no curing time. After noggin strings absorb tangle-thwarting dosages of the keratin-free formula, they’re blown out into a new ’do and can be washed the very next day. The smoothness from both treatments will last approximately two to three months, the amount of time it takes to obtain a passport to Alaska.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
À La Mode
Hairstylist Chadd Jonesmith started tending tresses 14 years ago at Van Michael Salon. Two salons later, he opened À La Mode, which is French for "in fashion," not "ice cream hairdo". His team of stylists live up to this name by drawing on their knowledge as educators and platform artists. A student of Vidal Sassoon, Chadd sets a good example for them by teaching for Kevin Murphy—a famous hairstylist who worked on Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge. He also brought his color bar out into the open to create a more social environment where clients could have their new tints applied and talk casually among themselves.
