- $130 for a Brazilian Blowout straightening treatment ($260 value)
During a 90-minute Brazilian Blowout treatment, the stylist makes several passes over your hair with protein-based treatment, a masque, and a serum before sealing each strand with heat.
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.

Q&A with Lauren, Owner, Stylist
When and how did you first realize you wanted to be involved in hair styling?
When I was in high school, I used to do everyone's hair and makeup before school dances.
If the apocalypse ever comes, what low-maintenance hairstyle would you recommend for the foraging person on-the-go?
A no-fuss French braid.
