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. Today’s Groupon to Inspire Salon tames tresses for easy scaling. Choose between the following options:

Inspire Salon’s stylists transform their clients’ tresses in a polished and welcoming environment. During 90-minute Brazilian blowout treatments, stylists coat strands with a smoothing serum that sinks deep into hair cuticles to silkify wild manes. Clinging to coifs for three to four months, the treatment shields strands from errant humidity and exiles frizz to tumbleweed gardens. The Bumble and bumble’s Concen-straight treatment smoothes locks for up to 30 shampoos, imbuing head gardens with a glossy glow and making hair more manageable to style. The formula’s gemstone blend of malachite, sapphire, tourmaline, and pearl convinces strands’ curves to relax, and light hints of silicone seal the results against heat, time, and vindictive hats.
At Inspire’s flagship downtown location, a chandelier dangles above a central staircase, flanked by translucent glass railings, that stretches up to a second-level balcony. Before appointments, clients can sink into cushioned white benches, taking advantage of free WiFi to write Dear John emails to frizz while perusing a wall of Bumble and bumble products. At the Uptown salon, WiFi also invisibly permeates the air amid buttery tan hues punctuated with organically shaped vases and chairs.
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.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Inspire Salon a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
Inspire Salon first opened its doors in 2006 to provide downtown Albuquerquens with a refuge from the busy city streets, a place to relax and pursue beauty. The stylists use Bumble and bumble products as the main ingredient in that pursuit, washing, conditioning, and styling hair with them. Other team members focus on sculpting and polishing nails, while aestheticians smooth and sooth skin with facials. They enhance the results of their treatments with professional make-up application. Though they treat their salon as an escape from the world outside, they know that sometimes clients can't afford to take a break from work. They offer all of their guests complementary access to their Wi-Fi network, so they can continue to work or troll fellow commenters while getting a pedicure.
