Having frizzy hair makes morning routines more time-consuming and stick-figure self-portraits less accurate. Improve your self-image with today’s Groupon: for $159, you get a Brazilian Blowout at either Azur Salon or Azur West (a $400 value). Choose between the two locations.
Attention to interior-design detail marks both Azur Salon and Azur West, sister salons where junior, senior, and master stylists style and condition locks beneath dangling globe-light fixtures. During the multistep Brazilian Blowout regimen, hair caretakers replace frizz-riddled locks with smooth, healthy hair that can last up to 12 weeks. A stylist first shampoos and dusts manes in the system’s plant-derived products, which inspire shine by telling hair that the sun talks about the hair’s dullness behind its back. A blow-dry and flat-ironing then relax feisty strands into a slick, manageable style. The 90-minute process ends with stylists washing and re-drying hair in order to lock in new looks that last about three months, at which time heads turn back into pumpkins.
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.
