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 tames tresses for easy scaling: for $150, you get a Brazilian blowout (up to a $350 value) at Janey Rufin’s Parlor. Brazilian blowout values vary according to length of hair, and customers with extra-long hair may use this Groupon toward the cost of their treatment.
Janet Rufin’s Parlor is a full-service salon staffed by a team of talented, friendly stylists. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, a 90-minute Brazilian blowout coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. The follicle artistes at hand will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, re-proteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again. Free of harsh chemicals, your new, smooth, and lovely radiance lasts up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried without dulling damage. Best of all, you'll cut your blow-dry time in half and need less hair product to achieve your mop-based recreations of Druidic temples and the Immaculate Reception.
Kick back over the course of the treatment and enjoy the low-key atmosphere of the Parlor; decorative panels complement the burnished wood floors and neutrally hued furnishings for a treat that’s as calming to the eye as a giraffe baby wearing a taco costume.
- What a great salon. I have to say, I really had a great experience here. Right out of the gate, they got my highlights right and fixed some major problems with a previous bad cut (a different salon). I highly reccomend this place. – ber1234, New York

Janet Rufin's Parlor
Large windows spill sunlight across the contemporary loft that houses Janet Rufin's Parlor, illuminating a funky portrait of a teal-lipped George Washington and delicate vases of yellow tulips at each stylist’s station. Inside, owner Janet Rufin, a master stylist with more than 19 years of experience who specializes in color correction and precision cuts, oversees a team of trained stylists. Though they are divvied up into different levels of expertise, Janet ensures clients always receive customized hair treatments and, as New York magazine puts it, "one-on-one attention from a doting staff."
Each haircut starts with a consultation and therapeutic shampoo and condition, and starburst and T-section highlights lighten locks at specific points on the head. Pravana products smooth unruly curls while Davines, Neuma, and Ecure shampoo and styling products make clients event-ready. Janet is not only dedicated to helping her clients with their beauty goals—she also looks out for her junior beauticians. The salon's apprentice program teaches aspiring stylists the ins-and-outs of the hair world as the experienced team keeps a close eye on their performance, ensuring treatments are well-executed and combs are never mistaken for scissors.
