1050 Mass. Ave., Cambridge
Aveda’s Botanical Therapy is an extravagance that infuses hair with naturally derived quinoa protein to strengthen damaged hair and saturate with a blend of essential oils made from the buriti and pomegranate plant. It starts with a neck and shoulder massage, followed by a deep clean. Then the treatment is applied, hot towels are wrapped around your head, the scalp is massaged, and finally, you get an amazing blow dry resulting in shine and softness. Bonus: they play runway music while you flip your hair in its awesomeness. ($90-$110, based on stylist.)
11 Newbury Street
Their new 30-minute deep conditioning Kerastase Chronologiste Deep Conditioning In-Salon Ritual is an ultra-luxe treatment that features a head massage with little “pearls.” These “mimetic caviar”—a lab-derived equivalent—are immersed in enriched Pacific seawater and are crushed right before they’re applied to release lipids, vitamins A and E, and marine nutrients. The pearls are mixed with a cream that contains gluco-lipids, ceramides, and antioxidants, and the velvety treatment results in captivating shine, softness, bounce, and luster. ($75, $115 paired with blowdry)
91 Newbury Street
Whether you choose the Oribe Signature Moisture Mask or Rene Furterer LuxeOil Keratine Restore Mask, each conditions your hair for optimum beauty before your wedding. Oribe’s tranforms even the most “over it” hair into supremely soft locks, while the LuxeOil instantly reconstructs hair fibers to improve texture and softness with argan, jojoba, and almond oils. Of course both come with a deluxe head massage, whether you get the treatment in the salon or onsite at your wedding. ($40-$59)
Salon Eva Michelle
118 Newbury Street
The Sebastian Clear+Care treatment is the best for brides to be. It’s a combo of the Drench Treatment and Clear Cellophanes—a non-ammonia, non-peroxide semi-permanent color shine enhancer. This combination will provide moisture to plump up those strands and add superior shine to ensure that hair is looking and feeling healthy and smooth for your big day. ($50)
