Do you have Dry, Frizzy or Damaged Hair?

The Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment ™. . . a revolutionary process that repairs damaged hair to leave it soft, shiny and frizz free for up to 4 months.

Stephanie is now certified to do the Brazilian Treatment. Please call Bianchi's Salon @ 248.545.6000 to learn more or email Stephanie at!!

The Brazilian Keratin Treatment ™ is:
- Quick - On average, the treatment takes one stylist only two hours.

- Affordable - It brings the price of silky straight hair to a reasonable level, expanding your customer base while remaining an upscale process.

- Universal - It can be used on dyed or highlighted hair. In fact, it can be used on any type of hair.

- Gentle - It is NOT meant to be permanent and it DOES require redoing approximately every 4 months. That is why you can leave it on the client's hair and walk away if you have to. That is why you can use it on children. That is why it blends with the natural growth of hair.

- Natural - It does NOT use strong chemicals to open and close the hair cuticle in an effort to straighten it, “breaking the bonds” of the hair shaft. Keratin is a natural substance which comprises approximately 88% of your hair.

- Healthy- It penetrates the hair repairing internal damage and coats the hair preventing further damage. The results are SOFT, SHINY, STRAIGHT hair.

- Easy - Begin with a shampoo designed to open the cuticle. Saturate the hair with the product (an average of 3 ounces). Blow dry. Iron small sections of hair close to the scalp with a low heat flat iron. Iron the entire head with a high heat flat iron to seal the keratin into the cuticle.- Simple - Do NOT wet, wash or use any clips or pins (or anything) on your hair for FOUR days. After the fourth day, shampoo and condition your hair with products free of sodium chloride and sulfates, which will strip the keratin from the hair. Our specially formulated line of shampoos and conditioners are the best available for maintaining the most long-term results.

- Simply Amazing - The results speak for themselves. As one client said: “I'm so happy I don't need my therapist anymore!”· Good for anyone who has hair.

What Is It?
Keratin is a type of protein high in the amino acid “Cystine.” This special amino acid is what makes hair super tough and extremely elastic. Scientists refer to Keratin as a “Biopolymer,” due to its unique structures and interesting properties. Biopolymers are found throughout nature and give form and structure to naturally occurring substances all around the world; everything from leaves to trees, and turtle shells to goose down. Keratin is a classic example of a Biopolymer and it is the main structure building protein in our hair and nails.

Useful keratin extracts have been long sought after as highly prized cosmetic ingredients. Until recently, high quality keratin extracts were impossible to find on a commercial scale. We utilize a patented process called Keratec® to carefully separate the Keratin from wool, while maintaining its quality…an extremely difficult task to do properly. The wool is harvested each spring when New Zealand sheep are sheared. This causes absolutely no harm to the sheep that are probably happy to be rid of their heavy winter wool coats before the coming summer heat. We use only pure and natural wool, straight from the farms. New Zealand sheeps’ wool is considered to be amongst the very finest in the world and absolutely free from BSE or anything else that would be potentially harmful.

How Does It Work?
When it comes to keratin, it’s extreme toughness is the key. Keratin’s durability and strength protect and improve the hair both inside and out. Our unique biopolymer ingredient is virtually a “liquid form of hair” that gently blends with the hair on your head to help restore what has been lost over time and through environmental stresses. What’s the unique benefit to this ingredient? The small size of the Keratin Biopolymer molecules penetrate under the hair’s cuticle and seep into the inner hair shaft, helping to improve the quality of the hair from the inside. The Keratin fills in the gaps between the cuticle and the inner hair shaft and becomes sealed into the hair’s inner structure by the high heat flat iron. As you will soon learn, the Keratin Biopolymer works with other ingredients in the product to help eliminate the frizz and add strength and elasticity

Due to the level of confusion on pricing of bridal parties and event hair styling with Stephanie, Deux Adore has reorganized their way of communicating. The inquiries for Stephanie, the hair stylist, will be directly sent to her personal email address,

Also, there has been some confusion with hair styling prices recently so, Deux Adore would like to refresh the rates. The hair styling starts at $65+ and will increase if necessary. The traveling fees will be included in the rate charged to the client. The bridal parties that are currently booked will not be effected in the new pricing structure.

Any hair trials will now only be booked with Stephanie at Bianchi's Salon in Royal Oak. To make an appointment please call 248. 545. 6000

Thank You and hope to see you soon!

our new chairs!!

I am so excited to debut our new director's chairs! I needed to get a high director's chair so I didn't break my back while doing makeup anymore. Stephanie's 25th birthday was coming up, so I decided to make ones for us as a surprise...Cindy at Dynamic Creation's did a fabulous job matching our colors & fonts on our business logo. I bought the chairs from Pier 1, they are $69 for the taller chair & $49 for the smaller chair. They are perfect & so much more comfortable for our clients!! I think one time I had a client sitting on my makeup turns into an actual stool, but it's hard plastic...I assure you these are much more relaxing as well + it takes me less time to do makeup because I am not bending down anymore ;)

Cindy @ Dynamic Creations:
They also do all my parents graphic t-shirts & logos!

our new logo!!

We wanted to create a new logo for our company, so we asked Kathleen from Plush Paper Creations to come up with some ideas. Kathleen's work is gorgeous, she has a great eye & is very creative!
I love what she did, it looks so elegant & sophisticated!! I knew I wanted to use a damask type print to start with, and the black, grey, and Betsey Johnson hot pink color! She also added the little hearts, which I was so excited about because I love hearts - and it goes with the "adore" theme. It turned out great, and we can't wait to get new business cards & a new website with our new logo on it!
Thanks Kathleen!! ;)

jackie's boudoir pictures

jackie's boudoir session


I also had the pleasure to meet Jackie at the shoot, when I did her make-up. We had so much fun...I really have to thank Kris, he made us all feel really confortable. He also didn't mind us 4 girls running around crazy in our underwear, haha ~ well what guy wouldn't anyway!!
I chose to do the make-up a little more on the dark & smoky side because of the setting...I think they looked HOT!!

katie's boudoir pictures

katie's boudoir session


Katie was setting up a boudoir session with Kris at Kreativ Imaging, and I jumped on the opportunity to do them with her! I wanted to do these pictures for my husband for our wedding last year as a gift...but in the end it just seemed to pricey, with planning the wedding and all. That was before Kris came around...Kris is very professional and his packages are very affordable! At the shoot there was four of us, and we just alternated getting our shots taken. Katie and Jackie asked me to do their make-up for the shoot, and Stephanie styled Katie's hair as well as mine. Katie is one of our brides, and I am doing her make-up for her wedding this upcoming May!
