$99 for a GKhair Keratin Treatment ($250 Value)
During each two- to three-hour treatment, certified GKhair trainer Kara Staats uses the company's signature keratin formula to leave hair silky and manageable for up to five months. The solution contains Juvexin, a moisturizing blend of proteins and peptides that penetrates the hair shaft to improve softness and, like a styrofoam jacket on an ice sculpture, helps it withstand heat and breakage.
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.
Kara Staats at Tricia Anderson Salon
Like artists, stylists often learn tricks of the trade from mentors, continuing a rich tradition and forming a solid base from which to grow. Kara Staats, for instance, draws upon the knowledge and fashion savvy of stylist Tricia Anderson, who, according to Forum magazine, studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. Staats is also an alumna of that renowned hair-design school, and since tossing her graduation cap into the air has undergone further training to become certified as a GKhair educator. In addition to leaving hair silky and smooth with GKhair's protein-rich formula, Staats transforms looks with cuts and highlights, airbrush makeup, and DreamCatcher extensions that prevent hair from having nightmares about bear traps mistaken for barrettes.
