After the hustle and bustle of Queens, New York, stylist Colleen searched for a new place that she and her hair studio could call home. She settled on the more laid-back lifestyle in Raleigh, and brought some of New York City's talented designers and colorists with her to transform clients' looks at Style & Elegance Designers. She prioritizes both the health and beauty of the hair, providing a variety of services with innovative products. Colleen cares for hair with designer cuts and restorative conditioning treatments and fortifies strands with weaves, extensions, and keratin-building motivational speeches.
Salon Blu breathes fresh life into tired tresses with design and coloring services bolstered by products from brands such as Redken and Pureology. The salon's legion of stylists masters new techniques by participating in ongoing industry education that keeps them as up-to-date as a live web stream of a page-a-day calendar. After lazing beneath a rich shampoo, strands undergo restyling at the hands of a highly trained designer. A color expert then rechristens the hair with partial foil highlights to add dimension, interest, and makeshift tic-tac-toe boards to single-shade manes. Stylists complete ’do updates with a final blowout.

Learn more about what?s going on beneath the surface of your strands during this treatment with Groupon?s examination of keratin treatments.
Keratin is the molecular building block of human beauty?without this fibrous protein, humans wouldn?t have nails hard enough to polish, tooth enamel sturdy enough to withstand weekly brushings, or hair lush enough to style. Within each strand of hair, chains of keratin can be arranged in different molecular patterns, and this variation is what gives each head of hair its unique texture. For those who find their hair's unique texture a pain to deal with every morning, those keratin bonds can be chemically rearranged with popular salon treatments from Brazilian Blowout or Keratin Complex.
Stylists apply a keratin-rich solution that finds its way into each hair?s second layer, where it can chemically reprogram hair from an unruly, cigarette-smoking strand into a well-behaved member of the scalp?s society. The heat of a flat-iron straightens hair after the serum's application so that as the keratin molecules fuse to each strand, they?ll do so in the right position. Methylene glycol or formalin?which release formaldehyde under heat?typically function as the glue bonding the molecules during and after treatment. The result of all this chemistry is a straighter and smoother look that can last for two months or longer, and, although any heat-based treatment can be taxing on hair, its fortifying effects tend to leave hair glossier and more voluminous than other relaxers do. So although frizz disappears, waves or loose curls can continue to cascade across the shoulders.
