In a desperate bid for smoother hair, Victorian nobility were known to replace crusty powdered wigs with alley cats slathered in Crisco. Grant yourself a velvety head-hide with today's Groupon: for $110, you get a Keratin hair-smoothing treatment at Salon Vis A Vis in Frankfort (a $300 value).
Nestled in an idyllic abode along Frankfort's scenic downtown draw, Salon Vis A Vis transforms wayward mop-tops into majestic manes with the kind of top-notch service that snagged it a Frankfort Beautification Award in 2010. The leading treatment of its kind, the Keratin Complex smoothing formula infuses tresses with natural keratin protein that curtails unruly curls and evokes the eye-fetching shimmer of an apple-cheeked Wookie. Ideal for strands of all stripes, the two- to three-hour treatment can glide across hair that's been color treated, chemically processed, or steeped in motor oil, producing a style-ready coif that won't engulf amicable overhead brushes. Treatments can last up to three–five months, and the salon's warm cadre of brush-bearers provides the proper tips for ensuring its durability.
Salon Vis A Vis
The stylists at Salon Vis A Vis outfit clients with fresh ’dos as well as sweeping extensions—either natural looking or feathered—behind the walls of a mint-green, cottage-style façade. Resembling a cozy den, but without the weathered sea captain usually found inside, the salon is wrapped in yards of dark wood furnishings, and each styling chair faces a unique antique vanity.
