When walking into CC's Hair Affair, you might catch a faint whiff of ginger, peppermint, or lavender?key ingredients in many of the shop's styling products and shampoos. What you probably won't smell is ammonia, as the team uses ammonia-free Paul Mitchell products for its perms, and a low-ammonia permanent hair color, also by Paul Mitchell, which offers superior gray coverage while conditioning strands with a natural beeswax base. In fact, high-quality Paul Mitchell and Matrix products are used in the majority of the treatments here, each chosen for its ability to help hair look its best without stripping it of moisture or covering it with a lamp shade.
Of course, hair isn't the only thing body part that benefits from the staff's attention to detail. Nail experts lavish attention onto hands and feet during indulgent mani-pedis, while facials reveal smoother, softer complexions, and eyelashes get a boost from extensions.

Laurie and Sabatina are experts on complementary colors. They'd have to be, considering the many types of highlights and lowlights they style. The possibilities include classic gold tones that brighten strands, as well as deep browns and caramels for those with darker hair, or those who want their hair to match their coffee.
