5 Add-Ons To Ask For At The Hair Salon

Posted on: 13 July 2016

Why settle for just the same old trim when you can use your next salon visit to make yourself feel and look amazing? By scheduling any of these four add-on services the next time you get a haircut, you will make the most of your salon visit and leave with renewed confidence:

Keratin Treatment

A keratin treatment is a deep conditioning and smoothing treatment that leaves your hair soft, shiny, straighter, and more manageable. This treatment has especially dramatic results for those with thick, frizzy, or curly hair. Not only will your hair look great, but you will probably find you need to spend much less time on your hair in the morning. You may also find you no longer need to damage your hair with frequent straightening via a flat iron.

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions instantly transform your look, giving you the long, full locks nature didn't bless you with. Today's hair extensions look very realistic and healthy-looking and are easy to take care of. Properly applied hair extensions from a trained professional can be washed, brushed, and blow-dried just like your real hair.

If you've always wanted your hair to have more volume and length than you've been able to achieve naturally, hair extensions can give you an instant confidence boost. It's best to schedule a haircut and hair extensions for the same appointment, so that your stylist can give you a cut that works well with extensions.

Hair Glaze

For temporary shine and gloss that lasts a few weeks, try a hair glaze treatment. This treatment involves applying a shiny gloss to the surface of your hair that leaves your hair looking shiny and vibrant. Hair glazes can be clear or have pigment that complements your natural (or dyed) hair color.


For gorgeous and very natural-looking highlights, ask for balayage. Balayage highlights are hand-painted onto your hair, giving a natural sun-kissed look. Unlike chunky, obvious highlights which have become dated-looking, balayage highlights are very on-trend.

Ornate Braids

Maybe it's the influence of characters on Game of Thrones, but elaborate, ornate braids have been showing up everywhere lately. If you don't have the time, patience, or hand-eye coordination to pull this look off on your own, call your favorite salon, like Mia Bella Salon, and ask if they offer elaborate braids. Most salons will charge whatever their standard up-do or event hair rate is for this.

Choosing one or more of these additional salon treatments will leave you feeling pampered, special and looking your absolute best.
