Kaitlynn Horvatch, 15, caresses her salon-fresh dye job at the science fair held on the Youngstown State University campus Saturday. Horvatch and partner Lindsay Blanton, 14, colored two human hair samples. One was treated with store-bought dye, the other recieved professional salon treatments. Both samples were washed 25 times. "The salon will save you money in the end," Horvatch said. "A professional job lasts twice as long."
