YUKO Hair Straightening
Straightening. YUKO Hair Straightening is the internationally patented system recognized worldwide as "Japanese Hair Straightening" or "Thermal Reconditioning". YUKO, together with Phiten, developed the specialized process that has proven itself as the envy of the hair industry. Each step of the procedure is specifically tailored to recondition, protect and maintain the health of the hair. Wavy, curly, kinky or unmanageable hair is left luxuriously straight with a lustrous shine. YUKO Hair Straightening is the original system that revolutionized hair straightening over 15 years ago and retains patent approval in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan and several other countries around the world.
Smoothing Treatment. Leading chemists and hair-care experts realized, that the key to creating an innovative treatment that was both gentle and effective, lay in harnessing the power of keratin, an essential hair protein that delivers incredible benefits, endless versatility, and a never-before-seen smoothing effect—all without breaking the bonds of the hair. And thus, Keratin Complex® was born. This patented formula (and its counterpart, Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment for Blonde Hair), and Express Blow OutTM took the beauty industry by storm, and consequently, cemented Keratin Complex's position as the market leader in the smoothing category.
Conditioning Treatments. Our three-step process includes a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. You can use Olaplex to restore compromised hair If you've over-highlighted your hair over the years, Olaplex allows you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity of your hair; a 'reset' for your locks, if you will.
Smoothing Treatment. Brazilian blowout is the only smoothing treatment that can be customized to keep curl and eliminate frizz, or to achieve a sleek and straight result. Known for significantly reducing drying and styling time for up to 12 weeks, a major benefit of this treatment is that it is finished at the salon with no "Down" time. This means you can leave the salon and immediately wash your hair, exercise, put it in a stylish pony tail or clip without having to wait days to do so.
Hair coloring is a highly personalized process, as treatments vary dramatically depending on your hair type, original hair color and target color. Avanti stylists take pride in working closely with each individual client to achieve his or her desired look. We tailor each treatment to suit you and provide professional advice on maintaining your new look.
A single process hair color produces a consistent, uniform hue throughout your hair. Depending on your hair type, color can be either permanent or semi-permanent.
A double process color is ideal for people with dark hair seeking a lighter hair color. The process begins with a professional bleaching, followed by color application. Double process alters the hair color permanently.
A shine treatment livens up dull hair and tones down extreme hues that result from coloring. Voila! A rich, more natural look.
A partial foil highlights strands of hair, beginning at the hairline and extending to the back of the head between the ears. This is an ideal solution for those who wear their hair down and who enjoy richness and depth in color.
A full foil highlights strands of hair beginning at the hairline and extending all the way down to the nape of the neck. This is a great look if you wear your hair up, as the highlights are distributed throughout.
For those who have undergone a hair color treatment and wish to restore their original hair color. Corrective color treatments vary depending on the type of hair and the process it has undergone; please come in for a visual consultation.
Expert after-color blow-dry styling is available for an extra charge.
