$99 for a Keratin Hair-Smoothing Treatment ($250 Value)
A stylist performs the Beox keratin hair-smoothing treatment to significantly reduce frizz for approximately two to four months. The treatment is effective on all types of hair, even extremely damaged or curly strands. You can shampoo your hair as soon as one hour after the treatment—for best results, use a sulfate- and salt-free shampoo.
Some hair-smoothing 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.
Gracy International Hair Design
Gracy, a native Brazilian with over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry, opened her full-service salon Gracy International in 2010. Like Gracy, the salon has a warm, laid-back vibe with colorful rugs, painted furniture, and lots of potted plants. In the front, a small boutique sells jewelry made in Afghanistan, hand-painted bikinis, and purses made from recycled, organic materials.
Gracy and her team perform a range of hair services using products from Lanza, L’Oreal Professionnel, and Glo Essentials that are designed to improve hair’s health. Santiago and Paulo are the massage therapists at Gracy International. With different backgrounds they bring a good mix of techniques and philosophies from different cultures and schools of body work.
