Best Places For A Keratin Treatment In Chicago

Among all Brazilian exports, from Giselle Bundchen and Samba to Caipirinhas and churrascaria, the hair-straightening blow-out may be the best. Essentially, a stylist paints a keratin protein solution onto your hair and seals it with a flat iron. Lasting around 12 weeks, the treatments repair previous damage, fight frizz, straighten hair and make you look as though you belong in a slow-motion shampoo commercial. Prices vary. Count on these Chicago spots for a healthy keratin treatment and emerge with smooth, shiny locks.

Whether you long for a multi-tiered ponytail or a trendy top knot, a Keratin treatment can ease your hair down the road to fabulous and Maxine Salon can be your starting point. The Gold Coast salon, in Chicago for 26 years, offers the Coppola Keratin Smoothing Treatment (pricing starts at $350). Stylists offer the treatment all day Monday and at 8 a.m. only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Afterwards, you’ll realize quicker drying time, hair that laughs at humidity and strengthened, de-frizzed gleaming tresses. If experience matters when choosing a salon, know that owner Maxine Kroll began her career as a stylist at Vidal Sassoon and opened her own place on Walton Street in 1986, and moved to the Rush Street location in 1997.
