Franc Michael Salon is now exclusively in brooklyn!

The summer is soon to began. So is the new trends, styles and colors for the warm weather. Life is full of changes some for the better. This is the case with Franc Michael Salon in Manhattan.Ever since we opened in Brooklyn we have been getting an influx of people that visited the Manhattan branch now wanting to get their hair done somewhere closest to them. So we looked into it and realized that many of our clients in Manhattan actually live in Brooklyn. We also discovered that because of Brooklyn's Bushwick area's gentrification the potential for new clients was going to be tremendous. The response from the general public in Brooklyn has been great so has the one in Manhattan but juggling both Salons and a Music Production Studio was not an easy task it was becoming difficult maintaining the three locations. The smarter business move was to sale the Manhattan Salon and Focus in developing the salon in Brooklyn. I consider this a step forward not a failure as far as the Manhattan branch is concerned cause everything accomplished in FMNY became the tools to make FMBK a success. So we closed the Manhattan Salon on March 31st of 2016.


I want to take this time to thank everyone that has been supportive of FrancMichael salon in Manhattan. Including Family , Friends , existing clients, walk-ins, Facebook friends, vendors and People in the beauty industry in general. It was a short run but educational and valuable for many reasons. For those who went to Manhattan salon and lived in that area.I don't know how far you are willing to travel to get the best service in great surroundings with phenomenal products that work at a great prize. But I don't think 30 minutes on the L train from 14th st to Halsey stop twice a month is a lot to sacrifice for your looks so come to Brooklyn and let us Create a new you at Franc Michael Salon.


Keratin straightening V Smoothing


Straightening vs. Smoothing

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is different. Conventional straighteners or relaxers may break the protein bonds within the hair’s structure, causing each strand to reform into a permanently straight shape.

Keratin Complex’s revolutionary technology does not break the hair’s bonds, instead delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired.

Keratin Complex’s signature keratin works effectively on all hair types. Our unique Smoothing Therapy treatments contain high concentrations of keratin that penetrate throughout the hair structure, and then are sealed within the cortex to repair damage.

Things you should know when buying human hair...


There are six ways to see if the hair you purchased is virgin:

  • There must be split ends. If the hair does not have split ends, this means the hair has been acid-washed and the cuticles have been stripped. 
  • You can feel the cuticles. Hold a strand of hair near the top between your thumb and index finger, and slide your fingers down the entire length of the hair. The hair should feel smooth. If you reverse the motion and slide your fingers up the strand, the hair should have ridges—these are the cuticles. If the hair is smooth both ways, the cuticles were stripped by an acid wash and you’ve purchased fake virgin hair. 
  • The ends of the hair will generally be lighter than the roots. This is more prominent in Indian Remy virgin hair because many women work outside in India. This won’t be as common in hair from Southeast Asia and China, where the sun is not as strong. 
  • The moustache/beard at the weft is short. The moustache/beard is the hair that has been stitched to the track and reversed so the hair does not shed. In virgin hair, the moustache/beard must be very short to avoid tangling. If the moustache or beard is long, the cuticles will catch on the long flowing hair. 
  • The hair is not coated with silicone. If the hair has a shiny residue on it, then it is silicone-coated Non-Remy hair. Remy virgin hair doesn’t have this coating. 
  • The hair does not smell like corn chips. Authentic virgin hair will not contain chemical residue, and it hasn’t been overly processed.

Franc Michael Team Goes to Boston!

On Sunday the 16th of November Franc Michael Team goes to Boston on a Business Trip. It was very cold and cloudy but the beauty of the city with its clean streets made up for it.  Business was successful so we spent the night for some leisure time. The restaurant we chose to Dine was exquisite and so was its wine. Their menu had so many choices of wine it took us long to decide what we wanted. Hotel Buckminster on Kenmore Square was perfect!  We were accommodated in 2 lovely suites and had access to a really nice restaurant and of course a great gym. That night we had an exciting evening of dancing to some funky/jazzy music and cocktails. Which we ended with our usual photo shoots…ha ha.

The following day we went shopping  on the famous shopping strip called Norway and visited Boston Common…beautiful. We then went to absorb some history at the freedom trail and ate at Joe's on the waterfront of Quincy Market. We then hurried to the Amtrak not caring about the rain cause we were feeling great. Great about our so much waited for accomplishment.
