Hair Conditioner: Ticket to a Molecular Makeover Your hair?s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it?learn why with Groupon?s close-up look at conditioner. Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer?the cuticle?is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair?the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.) The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.

Aromas of fresh-brewed cappuccinos and fruity wines swirl throughout Shear Genius Salon, where owner Brooke Capriotti and her styling team strive to make customers feel pampered and at ease with complimentary refreshments, free WiFi, and personal attention. The salon's licorice-hued walls and honey-toned hardwood floors create a warm environment, where clients are encouraged to discuss their desired 'dos with stylists before undergoing each tress transformation. While sculpting locks, Brooke taps into skills she learned by studying with the Wella Exchange, Bumble and bumble, and Fredric Fekkai. She's worked hard to perfect treatments such as So.Cap hair extensions, Bio Ionic straighteners, and Deva cutting methods, which allow her to cut curly hair in its natural form and eliminate the "spring factor"—a downside that results from trimming wet hair or accidentally applying Slinky extensions.

Though D. Joseph Salon has been in business for more than 35 years, its services aren't exactly old school. The salon's staffers lengthen locks with extensions, add glamour to eyelashes with NovaLash strands, and smooth and straighten hair with Brazilian Blowouts, Keratin Complex, and Japanese straightening treatments. Of course, they temper their trendier treatments with traditional hairstyling: men’s and women’s cuts, highlights, and powdered-wig re-powdering. The salon also has an on-staff wig specialist to help clients select and fit the proper hairpiece, as well as a stylist well-versed in multicultural hair textures.

And, of course, the salon can also address other beauty concerns with a full slate of spa services that includes waxing, make-up application, and false strip or individual eyelashes.
