Stylist Lisa at Salon Belleza smoothens unruly curls for up to 12 weeks with Brazilian Blowout Zero treatments that take approximately 90 minutes. After handing clients a complimentary beverage and shampooing their hair, the tress tamer applies the Brazilian Blowout Zero solution, whose ingredients include a plant-derived bonding system that foils frizz without releasing formaldehyde.

The process finishes with a Brazilian-blowout deep-conditioning mask and smoothing serum to hydrate hair and seal in sleekness, as well as a blown-dry style of choice.
