Like a cartoon, hair requires a seasoned expert to lend it animation and style and to ensure that it doesn't frighten small children. Garner G-rated locks with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a keratin hair-smoothing treatment at Spencer Malay Hair Salon and Med Spa (up to a $500 value).
Spencer Malay Hair Salon and Med Spa's expert staff returns damaged or unruly manes to smooth and vibrant states with the formaldehyde-free Keralyze-brand keratin taming system, earning a mention in InStyle magazine. During treatments, staffers coat damaged strands with keratin, a protein found within the hair's molecular structure alongside water and fossilized chewing gum. In addition to fortifying head threads, this protein infusion works to straighten out kinks and significantly decrease the time required to blow-dry and style.
Treatments may take up to two hours to complete, with results lasting up to five months depending on hair idiosyncrasies, the products one uses, the frequency with which one shampoos, and the type of bird one's head normally attracts. The restorative procedure can also be completed just after highlights or color treatment to help to seal in new hues. To prevent crimping hair, clients should avoid washing, styling, or using their hair as a rappelling rope for at least 48 hours following the treatment. Lingering questions may be addressed on the salon's frequently asked questions page.
Spencer Malay Hair Salon and Med Spa
Unlike some salon owners, Spencer Malay isn't content to just sit back and watch as his stylists have all the fun. The 15-year hairstyling veteran, beauty consultant, and makeup artist grabs the scissors and works alongside them, doling out the salon's signature razor cuts and conditioning therapies and offering hairstyling advice dubbed "perfect" by a reviewer for the July 2011 issue of Allure magazine. On the spa side of the studio, massages and facials provide a welcome dose of relaxation for busy clientele, and med-spa treatments erase years from the face and body with dermal fillers and spider-vein treatments performed under the supervision of a doctor, nurse, and the occasional haunted painting.
Patrons looking to bring a touch of the salon's glamour home with them can peruse a collection of Spencer Malay jewelry or add a pop of color to everyday makeup routines courtesy of Spencer's own line of mineral-based cosmetics. The salon also specializes in providing and fitting wigs for patients with medical hair loss and curates a large and stylish collection, with options recommended by medical and beauty professionals as well as past clients.
