Professional stylist and color expert Christine knows that hairstyles have to happen every day, not just at the salon. She finds it unfortunate that many stylists whip up hair into chic, fashionable looks only to leave clients befuddled the next morning when they try to replicate them. That’s why Christine administers fashion, bridal, and stylized cuts that clients can wear every day. To keep newly acquired styles looking shipshape for as long as possible, she treats hair with deep conditioner to strengthen and fortify locks against the elements and colors hair using products without damaging ammonia ingredients.

The warm kelp can also be used to extract toxins and siphon information from hard-boiled snowman secret agents.
