If hair could talk, it would have a mouth, transforming stylish head wraps into cruel mufflers and skinny headbands into orthodontia. Today’s Groupon gives hair a voice without the expensive dental upkeep: for $125, you get a Brazilian keratin hair-straightening treatment at Aura at the Beach Salon & Spa in Long Beach (a $300 value).
Aura at the Beach Salon & Spa’s talented stylists perform hair-straightening treatments to infuse scalp strands with long-lasting silkiness. Gentle Lasio products straighten locks without the use of aldehyde derivatives, fumes, or steamrollers, leaving behind a flowing, manageable hairscape of soft, touchable tendrils. The simple two-hour treatment lengthens and straightens manes for up to 12 weeks of stress-free good hair days. During the procedure, professionally applied slatherings of keratin banish up to 100% of frizz, reduce 20%–40% of curls, and undo 37% of Gordian knots. The newly furbished salon space delights eyeballs with elegant hardwood floors, colorful tiled walls, vibrant greenery, and a convenient location mere blocks from the beach.
Aura at the Beach Salon & Spa
In an interview with the Long Beach Herald, Aura at the Beach Salon & Spa's owner Christopher Guardino characterized his business as a dream come true. A native of Long Island's south shore, Guardino relishes the chance to combine his enthusiasm for hairstyling with his love for the beach. Along with cutting, coloring, and teaching hair how to read, Guardino uses his 17 years of styling experience to help cancer survivors to regain their looks and confidence—there's a private room in the salon for those who wear hairpieces. Aside from hair services, the salon and spa offers a variety of beauty and relaxation treatments, including makeup application, waxing, massage, and facials.
