Like a mirror, hair that's undergone a Brazilian blowout is smooth, shiny, and mesmerizing to people raised by wolves. Go for a hypnotic look with today's Groupon to Ankh Studio in Encino. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get a Brazilian blowout (a $275 value).
- For $40, you get $90 worth of salon services.
Guided by decades of combined experience, the four participating, savvy stylists at Ankh Studio attack ferocious frizzies with in-depth treatments and high-end products. Take your tresses on a smooth sojourn with a Brazilian blowout, which begins by cleansing hair with anti-residue shampoo. The Brazilian blowout professional treatment then creates a protective protein layer around the hair shaft, like quills do around a porcupine. The process helps clients obtain smoother, healthier, and better-conditioned hair, boasting a sun-smooched shine.
Clients can also landscape their scalp lawns with the salon's cut, styling, and color services. Lop off a dreadlock you just noticed was still hanging on from the '70s with a professional haircut and style ($35–$70/men; $50–$90/women). One-process color ($70–$75) and highlights or lowlights ($90–$120) fiddle with hair's tint and contrast dials until they look just right. During their services, guests sink into padded black-leather chairs in front of large, ornate mirrors.
When owner Linda Rich designed Ankh Studio, she wanted a contrast to the enormous, impersonal salons where she trained. “[I] wanted something that felt like home,” she says—an understandable sentiment after years of traveling the world as a stylist with Sebastian Professional. As she mulled over the details of salon decor, she gravitated toward the center of all homesteads: the fireplace. Ankh Studio's classically styled mantle is painted a chic black and white, anchoring tile mosaics and mirrors with wrought-iron borders.
Rich operates the salon with a team that includes one stylist whom she’s worked with for more than 35 years. She's chosen the new stylists with care, auditioning them with trial styling jobs and spirit quests to trim the pelts of mountain lions. Each stylist uses products from Paul Mitchell in the pursuit of the most flattering cuts.
