The fire-truck-red brick exterior of Mane Attractions Hair Studio invites heads of hair for remodeling within a spacious, studio-style salon. Wielded by master stylist Kristi Howell, a Joico deep-conditioning mask steeps manes for 20 minutes in hydrating nourishment and dives deep into strands to strengthen and repair hair damaged from over-styling, cold weather, or drying off in the microwave. To top off the treatment, the stylist corrals the warm breeze of a blow-dryer to bequeath coifs with a polished style. The studio recommends that heads sport the deep-conditioning mask up to two times per month, depending on the severity of the hair’s dryness.
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.

At Bei Capelli Salon, master stylist Tiffany Fitzpatrick remodels hairs with calculated snips and the sleeking effects of moisturizing treatments. Ms. Fitzpatrick nourishes strands with products from brands such as Matrix, Redken, Paul Mitchell, Aquage, and Moroccanoil. During treatments, guests receive a complimentary water, soda, or coffee along with access to the latest magazines and feelings of relief that they can get frizz-free follicles without sending their hair to the dry cleaners.
At Miles Salon and Spray Tan, it’s all about color. The team of stylists and technicians enlivens both hair and hide with professional-grade hues. After styling cuts to suit facial features and personality, they can mist physiques in shades of gold with full-body spray tans. Splashes of artful polish often follow during mani-pedis before a quick waxing evicts unwanted body hair and its dreams of being woven into a shirt.
