Images Salon offers a smooth new image

July 26, 2002

My favorite hair salon, Images Salon, is now offering the latest

technology in hair straightening, called Bio Ionic. If you're tired

of your frizzy or curly hair, you'll love this new permanent

solution. Clients who have had the process done are amazed at the way

their hair suddenly becomes shiny and silky smooth. Other benefits

are that it's a no-damage formula, it's safe for most chemically

treated hair, there's no burning or itching, and it revives dull,


lifeless hair. The process takes about three to six hours and prices

start from $300. The new growth needs to be treated about every four

to six months. Images is a full-service salon that offers all kinds

of hair services, including haircuts, hairstyles, scalp treatment,

hair color and permanents. There's also a make-up artist who offers

waxing and professional make-up applications, and a manicurist for

manicures and pedicures. Images is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday,

8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday

and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. It's at 2515 E. Coast Highway, Corona

del Mar. (949) 675-5531.
