'Tis the season for summer road trips, so whether you're taking the high road to the Santa Cruz mountains or booking it to Big Sur, the last thing you want to stress over -- other than your gasoline-tanked bank account -- is your hair statement. It'll be an easy ride with Amber Marie at The Strand Salon in Laurel Village: For $125 (regularly $350), let your locks flow with a keratin smoothing complex.
The treatment is designed to make your tresses sleek, more manageable, and easier to blow-dry and style -- potentially lasting as long as five months. High-quality Coppola products are used, so there's no need to worry about bumps in the road. Put yourself in Amber's chair between Thursday and Saturday -- she takes appointments until at least 6 p.m. -- and get yourself ready for the driver's seat.
