Before modern hair treatments, frizzy hair could only be smoothed by pressing it with an iron or by running it through the fingers of a jazz pianist. Achieve a noteworthy 'do with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a wash and blow-dry at brush. salon in East Longmeadow (a $30 value).
The professional stylists at brush. salon snip up hair services in a boutique beauty haven outfitted with contemporary and retro décor. Following the directions of a master stylist who has personally possessed hair since birth, guests settle into a black leather chair and lean their scalps back into a white shampoo bowl for a thorough cleansing. Refreshed manes then make their way to a styling chair, where the hairficionado conducts a coif concerto with a blow-dryer and styling tools that turn strands into a harmoniously composed 'do. Duration of the beautifying service depends on the hair's length, thickness, and tendency to spontaneously turn invisible.
Before tending to coifs, guests can rest on a black leather couch in the hardwood-floored salon, where black and white furnishings camouflage zebras who get into trouble with the law. The modern boutique, illuminated by fabric-covered orbs and track lighting, is further accented with vintage flair, including mod-inspired, circular shelves bedecked with vibrantly colored hair products from TIGI, Bed Head, and Rockaholic. Be sure to check out the salon hours, which vary during the week.
