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. Tame tresses for easy scaling with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a Brazilian blowout at Cheveux Hair Salon (a $200 value).
At Cheveux Hair Salon, certified Brazilian-blowout stylist Brett Boyd channels aesthetic expertise from his art background when he frames clients' faces with newly smooth and silky hair. The approximately two-hour procedure protects individual strands with a fortifying protein shield, battling off frizz with the vigor of a medieval warrior. Gleaming manes emerge from their appointments with straight and velveteen layers for long-lasting manageability and style.
Inside Cheveux, ethereal sunlight glows through storefront floor-to-ceiling windows to bathe hardwood floors and soft-cream walls. While awaiting their sleekifying treatment, patrons can browse the web with the salon's free WiFi to learn how to teach hair to braid itself or consider purchasing products for future head-coil health from the boutique's stock of Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Aquage formulas.
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.
Though Cheveux Hair Salon sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
