I love love love Creative Expressions Salon in Arlington, Ma. I have been a customer there for yrs. and have never felt more at home in a shop. The most recent and exciting
service that I had at C.E. was hair straightening. It was done about a month ago and absolutely the best thing I've ever done for myself :)
My fabulous stylist is Jennifer. I have(had!) wavy, dry and somewhat frizzy hair. Jenn has always led me in the right direction for cut, style and color. I've been so pleased with
anything she's ever done for me. The straightening process has gone over and above anything I had expected, I am THRILLED with the outcome. My hair is
very straight, smooth and silky, no words I could ever have previously applied to my hair :(
The process took about 3 hours and was painless. It looked beautiful from the moment it was done(and this was even before the 3 day no washing rule). The process was simple: Wash, dry, keratin solution and flat iron. I couldn't pin up my hair or wash it for 3 days, and
as Jenn said 12 times, ""no tucking hair behind the ears!"").
I was very excited to wash it on the 3rd day... I was so afraid my waves and frizz would be back... but it was
sooooooo easy to dry, took 10 minutes with a blow dryer,
no styling brush needed, only fingers(!), and it came out
straight, smooth and silky.
This is the hair I've always dreamed of; it's really chic, stylish, no frizz(even in humidity or rain!)and pretty.
I can't thank Jenn and the C.E. staff enough! I think this will be a regular gift I give to myself!!
Pros: Talented, warm and friendly staff, very personal touch!
Cons: Absolutely none!
