If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, then disheveled hair provides the least efficient route for climbing monkeys to reach the bananas in your fruit hat. Today's Groupon tames tresses for easy scaling: for $119, you get a Brazilian blowout from stylist Dave Faunce at Awilda Salon in Beverly Hills (a $300 value).
At Awilda Salon, Vidal Sassoon–trained stylist Dave Faunce draws from continual education as he straightens out 'dos with Brazilian blowouts. During the treatment, a potent blend of hair-straightening compounds irons out mane wrinkles, untangling kinks and eradicating frizz. Tresses emerge glossy and silky smooth, manageable enough to transform into french braids or lassos for snaring lovers. Brazilian blowouts remain in action for up to five months, shielding hair from humidity and frizz while maintaining a sleek texture. Awilda Salon's soothing space sets patrons at ease with sunlight filtering through gauzy, floor-skirting curtains and ivory blossoms of a fragile orchid rising from a pot at the front desk to take incoming phone calls.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
