Straightening one's hair gives coifs a sophisticated edge and reduces the appearance of birds attempting to learn what a comb is for. Avoid avian guests with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a Brazilian keratin treatment at Fa-El Salon in Great Neck (a $220 value).
With almost two decades of hairstyling experience under her belt, owner Faina helms Fa-El Salon, where she and her skilled staff de-frizz the tresses of clients with Brazilian keratin treatments. Wielding Lasio products, mane masters smooth unruly coifs by painstakingly applying the formula and uncoiling locks during the appointment. The treatment takes approximately four hours, significantly less time than it takes to smooth tresses by leaving them in the path of a glacier. Strands emerge smoother, shinier, and more manageable, and the treatment's effects can last for up to four months. Customers can upgrade to the organic version of the Brazilian keratin treatment for an additional $50.
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.
With almost two decades of hairstyling experience under her belt, owner Faina helms Fa-El Salon, where she and her skilled staff design hair according to current fashions and their clients’ whims. The stylists pride themselves on matching hairstyles to individual tastes and body types, sticking to Faina’s philosophy that a successful haircut must reflect—in ways loud or subtle—its wearer’s personality. While stylists pace around salon chairs in search of choppable cowlicks, aestheticians tend to other body parts with exfoliating facials, mani-pedis, and waxing treatments that remove nascent moustaches and signs of lycanthropy.
