Before salon straightening treatments existed, corkscrew tresses had to be locked in a haunted house or trapped in a mummy's tomb until they were scared straight. Today's deal offers a more scientific method of decurling: for $150, you get a keratin straightening treatment (a $300 value) at AMS Salon and Lounge on 16th and Sansom.
AMS Salon's forte is hair; it won a 2008 Philadelphia magazine Best of Philly award for hair color, was nominated for Best Hair Salon 2010 by CityVoters, and was a 2009 InStyle Beauty Blackbook pick for hair color. Let these hair authorities smoothen and straighten your noodle nest with a keratin treatment. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, the treatment coats each shaft of hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. After soaking strands for several days, hair can be rinsed and unfurled into a newly straight state that will last up to four months. Best of all, you'll need less hair product, less blow-drying time, and no straightening to achieve your ideal 'do, leaving you flat-iron free to explore new hobbies such as panini pressing.
AMS Salon's box-shaped orange salon chairs lend the room a funky flair conducive to hair artistry. The two-floor space continues the chic, creativity-boosting style with large arched windows, hardwood floors, and elegant light fixtures. A coffee bar rewards clients with percolated perkiness.
