Thanks to the one-two punch of hat hair and frigid temps drying out my strands, I needed major mane help. This East Village salon injected moisture back into my hair with this conditioning treatment. The quick-but-luxe service began with a wash (using sulfate- and paraben-free Nano Complex Keratin Gold shampoo) and scalp massage. Stylist Alison Kushner used a syringe to carefully apply a dose of Nano Complex Rejuvenating hair treatment, which is packed with amino acids, keratin and 24-karat-gold nanomolecules (they help the conditioner penetrate the hair shaft). Our advice: Spring for the blowout, which is an additional $35 and up; after Kushner worked her magic, I was ready to face the city with shiny locks that Rapunzel would covet. Regularly $35. Mention TONY when booking or at time of appointment for 20% off this treatment through April 24.
