For $135, today's side deal gets you a Brazilian blowout at El Salon, which has accrued a slew of honors in its 24 years in business, including 303 magazine's Best Salon in 2009. The full-service place of pampering is located on Virginia Avenue in the Washington Park West neighborhood.
The Brazilian blowout treatment takes approximately 90 minutes and leaves your hair silky and frizz-free for 10 to 12 weeks. Because it doesn't use any harsh chemicals— only a nutrient-rich polymer system that forms a protective, buttery-smooth layer on each head noodle—it won't damage your hair; in fact, the treatment nourishes and improves the condition of follicles.

Before Steven Trujillo heads to his salon in the morning, he takes a moment to relax in his garden, relish the fresh air, and marvel at the blossoming white roses. When explaining this ritual to reporters from the Rocky Mountain News, Steven said, "This is my peaceful spot. Once I spend some time out here, I can handle the chaos of the rest of the day." And his day certainly can get chaotic—the highly sought-after stylist is the owner of El Salon, where he snips new looks for a never-ending queue of brides and everyday clients pursuing the latest styles. The deftness of his work also has made him a popular man in the fashion world, with magazines such as 303 commissioning his work for photo shoots.
Within Steven’s sunlit salon, clients await appointments on sleek white chairs, admiring the abstract artwork and paintings that adorn the walls. A staff of highly trained specialists darts about nimbly, coloring hair, polishing nails, and pampering skin with facials. In order to stay on top of their craft, Steven and his staff routinely undergo training and take pains to monitor the hairstyle trends perpetuated by recent celebrity events and bigfoot sightings.
