The stylists at Kupala Hair and Beauty Studio know how important it is to stay ahead of the curve in a highly creative industry. They scour fashion magazines and runways for sources of inspiration, re-creating the looks they find for their delighted clients. To do so, they rely on their experience to cut hair and enhance it with vibrant color or highlights.
When Michelle Luna started her beauty career more than 20 years ago, she was confident that she had nowhere to go but up. The driven stylist spent the next two decades trying to improve her craft, apprenticing under a German stylist and continuing her education through workshops and classes with Redken, Schwarzkopf, and other industry leaders. Her years of dedication and hard work paid off when she opened her own salon, Luna Del Mar Salon.
Today, Michelle helms a talented crew that specializes in modern cuts and color treatments. They also perform Keratin Complex hair-smoothing treatments that keep strands in place for three to five months, which is how long it takes to snap the perfect passport photo of oneself.
Between them, Angela Von Yokes and Niccole Beckenbach have decades of beautifying experience. The two women have known each other for 16 years, and now they have an outlet for their extensive styling skills in Urban Beauty Salon & Spa. Here, they offer array of services ranging from basic haircuts and bridal styling to airbrush tanning and waxing. The airy salon, filled with natural light from many floor-to-ceiling windows, also welcomes clients for expertly applied hair color and restorative facials that prepare you for the moment when you're discovered by a modeling agent in a shopping mall.
Hair Relaxers: Breaking Nature's Bonds
Thanks to hair relaxers, you can walk into a salon curly and leave straight. Zoom in on the chemistry of your curls with Groupon’s introduction.
Human hair is flexible enough to run wild as a mountain stream one day and fall as straight as water over the Hoover Dam the next. But to make lasting changes to its texture, you need to go beyond the reach of styling tools down to the chemical level. All hair is made of keratin, a hard protein that’s also central to our skin, nails, and exoskeletons. To form a single hair, keratin molecules link together in different patterns with the help of three types of chemical bonds: hydrogen bonds and salt bonds, both of which break easily in water and reform when dry, and disulphide bonds, which can only be broken by certain chemicals. In straight hair, the disulphide bonds are evenly aligned. In curly hair, however, the bonds occur irregularly and at odd angles, causing the hair to twist and kink on its way down.
When you style your hair with heat or water alone, you break the weaker hydrogen and salt bonds to allow your do to take a new shape. Once water touches your hair, however, the bonds reform in their customary way, and you’re back where you started. Chemical relaxers, therefore, work by dissolving the hair's tough, waterproof disulphide bonds and preventing them from reforming in their normal pattern.
The most powerful hair relaxers contain sodium hydroxide, otherwise known as lye. Given lye’s presence in drain openers and oven cleaners, you might guess that it can be quite harsh on human skin, which is why no-lye relaxers made from guanidine hydroxide are also common. There is a trade-off, however: some find that lye relaxers are harder on the scalp but gentler on hair, and work more quickly so that you can get back to staring at your hair in the mirror sooner. An experienced stylist can recommend the best method for your hair.
