Hair Services
At Les Travaux Salon, we offer many different types of hair cutting and styling services. The oldest known description of hairstyling for women is a hair braid, and up until the Middle Ages, most women would not cut their hair. It was during the first world war that women started to cut their hair because it was easier to manage, and across the years hairstyles have changed drastically. Les Travaux Salon can help you achieve the look you love.

Coloring Services
Les Travaux Salon also offers coloring services such as retouches, all-over color, hi-lites, balayage, ombre, and more. The founder of L’Oréal, Eugene Schueller, is credited for creating the first synthetic hair dye in 1907. The first home color product, named “Poly Color”, was then released in 1947 by German cosmetics.

Textured Services
Perms, relaxers, and Brazilian blowouts are included in the textured services offered at Les Travaux Salon.

Perms have been a favorite hairstyle for many years, as the as the “Long-Lasting Hair Waving Technique”, the first similar perm hairstyle, was invented in 1870. As perm techniques have varied through history, current data depicts that 1.7 million Americans perm their hair at least six times a year.

Hair relaxers can be dated back to the early 1900s and were founded by Garrett Morgan. His hair straightener cream was accidentally founded while he was attempting to remove the friction from his sewing machine in his tailor shop.

The Brazilian blowout started in the early 1980s and was originally used for models. This method was a way to keep the model’s hair straight over the course of a week’s photoshoot, without having to repeatedly straighten and touch up their hair.
