Martin,

That is not a very good approach in my opinion...

http://schema.org/ProfessionalService

http://schema.org/EmergencyService

http://schema.org/FinancialService


If we equate "Keratin Treatment" with anything... it would be the
equivalent of "Plumbing Repair" ... or "A/C Repair" ... or "Plastic
Surgery... or "Hair Cutting"... the verb form (Service) that a Service
Provider actually provides...

But Martin is saying that http://schema.org/Product should be used for
Services as well ?  "Plumbing" or "A/C Repair" or "Plastic Surgery"  is the
same idea as "Keratin Treatment".   To turn those into Products just feels
and looks very wrong.

http://schema.org/Demand has the businessFunction property to hold the
"repair" but then ...
Where does the concept of "Plumbing" or specifically "Plumbing Repair" or
"A/C Repair" fall under a http://schema.org/Demand
or elsewhere ?

Even I do not see the correct correlation to a Service "Keratin Treatment"
 versus a specific Product like a "Blue stripped T-Shirt" at H&M, I will
admit.

Thoughts ?
