Unless regularly straightened, curly hair can unleash the kinetic energy of its coils to spring hats off heads or send hairpins flying into an enemy’s birthday balloons. Keep tresses out of trouble with today’s Groupon: for $89, you get a Brazilian blowout at Changez by Suzanne in Carmel (a $250 value).
Master mane tamer Suzanne Coffin irons out frizz and imparts silky shininess to unruly follicles for 10–12 weeks. During a two-hour Brazilian blowout treatment, infusions of ointment unfurl head threads into tresses as smooth as a laminated map of the Silk Road. After a relaxing application at the hands of the expert stylist, hair is blow-dried and flat-ironed out into stylish manageability until it flows past shoulders with the grace of a billion-dollar mop head.
Some Brazilian Blowout products include the carcinogen formaldehyde, which may cause nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among other side effects. Learn more about the health risks here.
