Main Street Hair Company has FOUR distinct levels of smoothing treatments available for our curly-headed clients! All treatments add keratin to the hair, which will strengthen the hair and make it shinier, healthier, and more manageable.
We recently added a Brazilian smoothing treatment to help tame the toughest, tightest curls out there, after stylists Ellen and Courtney attended a certification course in Keratherapy's Extreme Brazilian Treatment smoothing system.
Here are the four levels of treatments we offer:
1. Keratherapy's Extreme Brazilian Keratin Treatment
2. Cezanne's Classic Smoothing Keratin Treatment
3. Keratherapy's "Color Lock & Smooth" De-frizzing Treatment
4. Color WOW's DreamCoat
See our service menu HERE for pricing.

There is no denying that social media has had a profound impact on the fashion and beauty industry. It may leave some of you confused. Do you know the difference between a balayage and an ombre... or exactly what is a shadow root or color melt? . What does it all mean? Well, here’s a handy guide to terms we use in the beauty industry which may help you understand these trends or even just the basics.
Below are terms worth knowing if you’re considering coloring your hair. Bust these out the next time you’re in our salon and your stylist will be seriously impressed!
Babylights: A very fine version of highlights that mimic the natural look of a child’s hair that’s been kissed by the sun.
Balayage: A hair painting technique that was developed by French colorists. It involves hand painting strands for a natural-looking, easy-to-maintain ‘do. Since it utilizes a free-hand technique balayage can be customized to your lifestyle and ideal maintenance schedule.
Base Color: The color that is applied all over your head as a starting point for your dye job. Typically, highlights and lowlights follow in order to veer away from a monochrome, one-dimensional look.
Color Melt: Melting is a technique that blends the highlights with the base color of the hair so that there are no harsh lines.
Cool: Although you might be the epitome of a “cool girl,” this term actually refers to the tonal value of the dye you select. Cool tones include blues, purples, and greens, while cool colors range from platinum and ash browns to plum reds and blueish blacks. Pro tip: Opposites attract, which means cool hair colors look best on warmer skin tones.
Dimension: The opposite of flat hair. Dimension is the difference between lackluster locks and a head full of movement brought on by highlights and lowlights.
Double Process: When you sit in the salon chair through not one, but two coloring techniques within one hair appointment to achieve optimal dimension. Example: base color + highlights.
Foiling: When a colorist paints your hair inside strips of foil which are then folded around the sections of hair to create highlights and lowlights.
Full Highlights: Highlights everywhere! Who would’ve guessed? No, this doesn’t mean that all your hair is being dyed. Rather, it means that sections of hair will be highlighted all through your hair, instead of just on the topmost layer.
Lowlights: Where highlights use blonde streaks to brighten up tresses, lowlights darken strands to add depth and dimension.
.Ombré: The low maintenance look that’s the result of the beautiful balayage technique. Since strands are only colored from mid-shaft to ends, you won’t need to worry about growth or touch-ups nearly as often with this look.
Partial Highlights: Typically face-framing or top layer lightening to add the illusion of volume and body.
Pastel: The lightened, extra playful colors that span across the rainbow. Lavender locks, anyone? Bleached Hair in the color of your choice and watch as your mermaidy tresses make a splash.
Platinum: The blonde of blonde. Easily one of the most time-consuming, maintenance-requiring hair shades a girl can choose. But if ice cold color is what you’re after, then a platinum ‘do might be in your future.
Shadow Root-:This stunning look means that roots are just a different color from the rest of the hair. Hair is dyed so the color starts in a tapered manner a couple inches down from the scalp. Those roots can then be a natural dark hair color, green, red, blue or any color you want. Typically, fashion color roots are paired with silvery hair for a stunning look.
Single Process: One and done, meaning you can get your desired hue in just one sitting.
Tone: Essentially the adjective that describes a hair color. While there are black, blonde, brunette, and red hair colors, tones break it down even further. Think: soft jet black, platinum blonde, strawberry blonde—you get the idea.
Sombre: Sombre is the subtler softer sister of Ombre. With this method, there’s a lower contrast between the hair at the roots and the hair at the ends, and the dark shade at the roots subtly gradates into the color at the ends for a more seamless blend.
Warm: The other side of the tone spectrum. Where cool refers to blues, purples, and greens, warm tones lean towards yellows, oranges, and reds. The same way cool tones look best on opposing skin tones, warm hair colors look best on cooler skin tones.
Sulfate-Free: Easily one of the most need-to-know terms in this guide. Sulfates are detergents found in everything from household cleansers to shampoos. If you have color-treated hair, consider using sulfate-free shampoo like our All-Nutrient Certified Organic brand. If you’re going to invest in coloring your hair it’s wise and cost effective to invest in products that will help preserve your color.
We know, this is a lot to remember… but once you understand these terms you’ll be able to ask for the look you want without any confusion or misunderstanding. A happy client equals a happy stylist!
During the winter months, cold outside weather combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your hair, leading to split ends and breakage.
1. Shampoo less often to help with itchy, flaky scalp.
Plaques of skin can smother the scalp, not only causing itch and flakes, but smothering growth as well. “Shampoo a little less if you can. Watching your diet and managing stress are good solutions for scalp concerns.
2. Switch to an oil-based hair moisturizer to lock in extra moisture.
Blasts of dry air are not good for any type of hair. The only way to combat it is with extra moisture. Hair is sensitive to cold weather, and prone to brittle texture, breakage, and split ends. We recommend our All- Nutrient or Onesta Hydrating Conditioners.
3. Commit to weekly treatments to keep hair hydrated.
Once a week, you should treat your hair: slather conditioner on. Wear a shower cap to help hold the heat in for the moisture to penetrate into the hair shaft. Leave in for 30 minutes. We recommend our featured product of the month, “Onesta’s Nourishing Moisture Masque”
4. Use a leave-in conditioner to combat static.
It’s common to get those static fly-aways in the winter when the air is dry. Be sure hair is hydrated with regular conditioning, then lock it in with a leave-in conditioner. We recommend All-Nutrients Color Safe Detangler or Red-e to Go Instant All in one Hair Treatment.
5. Cut down on your heat-heavy styling routine.
Avoid daily use of hot tools. All that heat and dryness will result in split ends and breakage Also try protective styles, such as braids, buns, twists, and ponytails, which give hair time off from the heat routine.
6. Never go outside with damp hair to bypass breakage.
It’s critical to dry your hair thoroughly before going out into the cold. Anything that’s cold expands. Exposing your hair to the cold weather, puts you at risk for breakage and makes your color fade faster.
7. Hydrate hair overnight with an oil or serum.
Try All- Nutrients Organic Pure Oil (essential nutritive therapy for the hair and skin)
Protect your pillowcase with an old t-shirt to avoid staining.
