$99 for a Brazilian Blowout ($350 Value)
During the two- to three-hour Brazilian blowout treatment, a stylist combs Brazilian Blowout Original solution into hair from root to tip, which coats each strand in proteins that protect and flatten the cuticle. A blow-dry and flatiron straightens hair even further, leaving clients' hair shiny and soft. The blowout's smooth results can last for up to three months with proper care and the use of sulfate-free shampoo.
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.
Headlines Hair Salon
Although the stylists at Headlines Hair Salon are whiz kids when it comes to traditional salon services and product lines by Goldwell, Wella, and Schwarzkopf, they do more than just manipulate existing hairdos—they also help clients regrow thinning strands with their signature laser hair-therapy sessions. The sessions use low-level-laser energy to noninvasively energize strands, which causes them to sprout like sunflowers in a tanning bed full of Miracle-Gro. After 6–12 months of weekly treatments, men and women can sport a fuller-looking head of hair.
