SEATTLE -- A unique salon in Seattle has joined the fight against lice.

As students head back to school, parents are always bracing for bugs brought home by their kids. But it’s not the cold or flu they need to worry about – it’s a four letter word: lice.

To make matters worse, parents must now battle “super lice.” According to the Medical Journal of Medical Entomology, 42 out of 48 states, including Washington, are experiencing mutant lice resistant to most over-the-counter treatments.

A new salon in Seattle specializes in the removal of lice. Hair Fairies Inc. promises to get the lice out with non-toxic treatments in a comfortable environment.

Prices range from $30 to $100, depending on the service. They also have products available for purchase so customers can continue to battle lice in their home.

Hair Fairies also has a salon in Portland and other cities around the U.S. Find more information on
