With the World Cup Soccer Tournament taking place in Brazil this year, all kinds of tidbits of information about the culture of the country have been on the airwaves and web.

Here at Flawless Skin Spa, we know a thing or two about laser hair removal and THAT type of Brazilian hair treatment… ahem. And of course, most of us have heard about the Brazilian Blowout, where you can have your hair chemically straightened with treatments that can last 10-12 weeks.

The other day, I heard about the newest thing to hit the hair industry from Brazil (even though it’s been around since the 60’s) and although I have shorter hair, I thought it was really intriguing for those of you who adore your long locks but have to deal with the split ends and frazzled texture that results from hair that’s been processed and, well, around for a lot longer! It’s called Velaterapia, or ‘candle-cutting,’ and is popular with Victoria’s Secret models including Barbara Fialho, Alessandra Ambrosio and Isabeli Fontana. The treatment involves twisting the hair into sections and running an open flame through the length of it. It aims to rid locks of split ends without taking anything off the length. I’ve included a link to an article that has photos of the process; it really is amazing! Don’t know if anyone in New Mexico is doing it yet but I’ll bet they soon will be. Stay Flawless!
