A haven for stressed strands afflicted with the frizzies and uncontrollable curls, Special Images Hair Studio is staffed by only the most professional hair curators and stylists who know that a great hairstyle can be more inspiring than a papier-mâché crown made of Chicken Soup for the Soul pages. Guaranteed to be more refreshing than going for a swim at the beach on Boxing Day and a step away from the stress of Christmas shopping and tinsel-stringing, the chic and relaxing Joburg salon is the perfect place to take tired tresses or strands in a strop. While you kick back in the tranquil and relaxing salon, the hair-gurus will handle the more difficult and tiresome task of relaxing your hair.
The Brazilian Blow-dry is perfect for shooing away bothersome corkscrew-kinks or ferocious frizz. Popular amongst most people who find themselves longing for smoother hair, the revolutionary and rather famous treatment is well-known for transmuting uncontrollable curls and generally mutinous manes into a far sleeker fall of silky strands. The specialised formula, containing the same keratin your hair is naturally made of, ensconces stroppy strands in a protective protein which simultaneously guards the hair from the elements and infuses it with the type of radiance you usually see in shampoo commercials. The formula is sealed in with a combination of blow-drying and flat-ironing, which fulfils the dual purpose of razing the remaining kinks, leaving with you tresses that dangle in straight and glossy fall.
Whether your hair is shoulder-length or longer than the reins on Santa’s sleigh, the Brazilian Blow-dry is guaranteed to smooth and strengthen your frazzled locks, leaving them ready to defend themselves from frizz-ambushes for about three months – or six re-enactments of Rapunzel. With newly sleek hair, you’ll be ready for the season of cocktail dresses and Christmas parties, with the freedom to style your hair to match – whether that’s wavy, straight or tousled as Santa’s helpers the night before Christmas.Hairy fact: After cutting off her five meter-long pony-tail, a woman in Pamplona was so loathe to part with her severed strands that she decided to use the follicles to knit herself a quilt.
