Smooth Operator

Doc Brown’s plutonium heist. Scooter Libby’s chat with The Washington Post. Your dormmate’s attempt to grow bud in the closet.

You’re justifiably skeptical of a man with a plan.

But here’s a reason to make an exception: Halo Salon stylist Johnathan James’s Ionic Rescue hair conditioning treatment.

James discovered the intensely moisturizing treatment while training in Utah at Toni & Guy and brought it to Seattle for a client with particularly dry, brittle hair. Other clients and stylists were so impressed, it became the salon’s smash hit.

The process may be scientific (a flat-iron seals product into the hair shaft, where ionic beads burst, releasing a positive charge), but the seriously soft and shiny results inspire hallelujah-worthy faith.

The treatment lasts as long as color, so you can say au revoir to frizz for a long stretch.

Mission accomplished.

Johnathan James, Halo Salon, 1919 Third Avenue, between Stewart and Virginia Streets (206-256-0715 or halosalon.com).
