What is CurLab and Curl Clinic?

Answer: our newest curly hair services!

In an effort to offer more services to our curly clients, East 42nd Street Salon is introducing CurLab and Curl Clinic.

What they are...

CurLab is a chance for our curly apprentices, junior stylists, and master stylists to experiment with new cut and color techniques. Because it is a "lab" environment with a new cut or color technique, there is a discounted cost. The CurLab service includes a cut and color service, up to but not including a full pintura. Cost is $100 for master curly stylists, $85 for junior curly stylists, and $75 for apprentices. You can purchase additional add-ons as well, such as deep conditions and two or more colors. You can also elect to only do a cut and forgo the color, in which case the service is half price. CurLab is a fantastic opportunity to get creative with your curls and try something new and different! CurLab appointments are taken on Wednesday evenings only. Call now for more information!

Curl Clinic is an intensive, one-on-one tutorial on home curl care. Your curly stylist will walk you step-by-step through your styling routine, from cleansing and conditioning to styling and finishing. We encourage clients to bring their products and appliances (diffusers, clips, etc) from home so we can best recreate your everyday routine. Curl Clinic is also a great way to learn styling tricks and tips, such as updos or different ways to wear your hair. Cost is $25 and is being offered by junior and master curly stylists.

If you have any questions about CurLab and Curl Clinic, please do not hesitate to call today and ask for details! Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!

Elizabeth O'Brien

Elizabeth O'Brien was born and raised in Richland Center, WI where the abundance of outdoor activities and untouched nature helped mold her perspectives and connections which would become apparent in later work. Elizabeth started creating work using acrylic and plexiglas, in a reverse removal manner. While living in Montana, the landscape and attitude played a huge role in influencing her natural lines of movement, as well as earth tones and intricate balances created between things.

If interested in any displayed piece or other works, you can contact the artist at, or by phone at 612.860.0146

If you would like to come and view or purchase her work in the salon it will be up for the month of October.

Shine On

You may think that grey hair makes a woman look older than anything else, but according to a recent survey by ELLE Magazine, it’s actually dull, frizzy hair that communicates age. For the hair (curly or Straight) to appear shiny, shiny, shiny, the cuticle must be closed. That can be achieved with thermal finishing or wet sets. Also, well-conditioned strands tend to reflect more light because the formula “plugs up” the uneven cuticle layers in damaged strands. Another shine enhancer? Color glazing/glossing services used as stand-alones or to enhance a previous color application.
