At Erika Taylor Urban Spa, guests put their hair in the hands of trained stylists and luxuriate on lounge furniture amid cut flowers and ornate metalwork. Aesthetes begin 90-minute Brazilian Blowout treatments by selecting between a traditional Brazilian Blowout formula and the formaldehyde-free Brazilian Blowout Zero. After pretreatment consultations, heads dip into sinks for a specially formulated shampoo that cleans locks for a comb-through with the solution of choice and lets staff weed out water-phobic witches. The products coat strands with protein that protects from humidity, refrizzing, and everyday hardships. The multistep process uses a flat iron and blow dryer, coupled with applications of mask and a smoothing serum, to tame unruly jungles into sleek and lustrous head gardens. Once the stylist completes the final blow-dry, clients show off newly lustrous cascades of hair strong enough to support a braid-climbing tower inspector and his building-code handbooks.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
Erika Taylor Urban Spa
Highlighted by a black-and-white color scheme, high ceilings, and exposed ductwork, Erika Taylor Urban Spa’s industrial aesthetic stands in contrast to its botanically based spa treatments. And though the skincare and massage services involve plant-based emollients, they also leverage cutting-edge techniques and technologies. For instance, HydraFacials resurface skin and deliver an intense dose of moisture via an instrument that loosens and lifts away dull skin cells by creating a vortex. Hair and nail treatments round out the service menu, helping clients become beautiful from head to dewclaw.
