Early humans believed that hair was actually the tentacles of an octopus living inside their skull—an amusingly quaint notion now that modern science has proven it's technically a cuttlefish. Indulge your inner invertebrate with today's Groupon to Aqua Salon in Manhattan Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get either a haircut and style or balayage highlights (a $150 value each).
- For $175, you get a Brazilian blowout (a $350 value).
Offering an ocean view from its relaxing insides, Aqua Salon is a full-service salon where highly skilled snippists will revamp shaggy manes. The formaldehyde-free Brazilian blowout begins as straightening specialist Suzy Morris cleanses head tails with anti-residue shampoo and combs through strands with the Brazilian blowout treatment, coating locks with protein layers to act as protective keratin body guards. A blow-dry and flat iron further seals the strand-smoothing deal leaving hair straightened, frizz-free, and fortified against the most virulent of wind storms.
Patrons can also upgrade locks with a haircut, which has proven more effective than convincing your hair follicles to shorten themselves with firm language. Talented tress-trimmer Alec Cara will blow-dry and style cranium covers to lock in a salon style and prepare them for sidewalk struts and hatless events. Or, Suzy can splash one-toned strands with foil-free balayage highlights, a French highlighting technique that leaves skull spaghetti with a naturally sun-kissed look normally reserved for avid tanners or solar spelunkers.
Today's mane-makeover deal features the strandiwork of stylists Alec Cara—a former boxer whose tress victories include Mandy Moore, Ashley Tisdale, and other famous hair owners—and Suzy Morris, who has practiced her "less is more" philosophy on the coifs of Hillary Clinton, Renee Zellweger, and the Invisible Man.
