In the endless struggle for smoother locks, many people have resorted to slathering their pillows in Crisco and fashioning hats from Al Green records. Sing calming melodies to your mane with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a keratin treatment at V & H 150, located in the Studio Salons building (a $300 value).
V & H 150 tends to tresses with smoothing keratin treatments in a cozy salon studio. A one-on-one consultation kicks off the session, allowing clients to comfortably communicate their needs, ideas, and expectations for treatment. A succession of shampoos and a vitamin-rich keratin-protein serum then curb unruly curls and leave behind the soft sheen of a dolphin’s silk pajamas. The revitalizing gust of a blow-dryer accompanies a careful flat-ironing that jettisons frizz as it fortifies follicles and seals keratin into the follicle, resulting in smoother, straighter hair that won’t catch on the landing skids of passing helicopters.
V & H 150's tea-green walls, full-length styling mirrors and hardwood floors frame clients in a chic, minimalistic space to complement their pared-down new 'dos. After the two-hour treatment, head hides must stay and straight for 48 hours so that scalps don't reject the smoothness transplant.
V & H 150
Inside the cozy, two-chair studio at V & H 150, stylists Veronica and Holly cut and color male and female manes using Aquage and Joe Grooming products. Additionally, the stylists are certified in the formaldehyde-free Global Keratin product line, which works to smooth frizz semipermanently with its custom blend of proteins and vitamins. Updos and facial waxing round out the salon’s list of head-beautifying services. During appointments, clients seated in front of full-length mirrors may gaze at the flat-screen TV for entertainment more exciting than fashioning hair clippings into toupees for balding G.I. Joes.
