Tei Salon’s experienced follicle aficionados manage manes with a slate of hair services beneath the cascades of natural light that pour through high, arching windows and across a hardwood floor. During the 90-minute Brazilian blowout treatment, certified stylists Michelle, Holly, Debbie, or Donna shampoo locks with antiresidue product to prepare them for transformation into gleaming, frizz-free waves. The skilled aesthete then combs the solution into divided hair sections, bombarding each strand with proteins that help smooth and flatten the cuticle and draw attention to sturdy tresses like a love note from Rapunzel. After a brushing, blow-drying, and flat-ironing, the stylist rinses locks twice and shores up each rinse with an application of a mask and smoothing serum that help trap the straightening formula. Blow-dryer yawns soak craniums in warmth, and the coiffure artist manipulates the hairdo into desired shapes in the sunny, earth-toned salon.
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.
Sunlight spills through Tei Salon's ornate, arched windows to illuminate stations where stylists work to restore each head of hair to a healthier texture and hue using nothing but their shears and keen aesthetic eyes. Well, not exactly nothing. The stylists also rely on a stock of haircare products from Bumble and bumble and L'Oréal Professional Series Expert, all of which are potent enough to nourish, smooth, and give hair the ability to swish over shoulders in cinematic slow motion. The salon, tucked within the Chestnut Village Shoppes, connects to its sister spa, where Tei Salon's Dermalogica-certified aesthetician focuses on curing skin of its every ill, from rejuvenating mature skin to purifying acned complexions to defuzzing bodies during specialized facials and a full complement of waxing services.
