What You'll Get
Lengthy hair has long been associated with female beauty, male strength, and mobile bird homes. Leave lengthy architecture to the experts with today’s Groupon to Janet Rufin’s Parlor in Union Square. Choose between the following options:
- For $50, you get $100 worth of any hair service.
- For $149, you get a Brazilian Blowout Zero treatment (up to a $350 value).
Brazilian blowout values vary according to length of hair, and customers with extra-long hair may use the Brazilian blowout option toward the cost of their treatment.
Janet Rufin’s Parlor staffs a team of talented, friendly stylists who provide a full-service, boutique-salon experience. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, a 90-minute Brazilian Blowout Zero coats each shaft of hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. The follicle artistes then blow-dry and flat-iron locks, reproteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again. Free of harsh chemicals, the newly smoothed ‘do lasts up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried without dulling. The procedure is designed to cut blow-dry time in half and require less hair product to achieve mop-based re-creations of Druidic temples and the immaculate reception. Alternatively, indulge in a chic and transformative hair service such as single process color ($100+), gloss ($100+), or a blow-dry and style ($65+).
Kick back over the course of the treatment and enjoy the low-key atmosphere of the Parlor. Decorative panels complement the neutrally hued furnishings and views of Gramercy Park for a treat that’s as calming to the eye as a giraffe baby wearing a taco costume.
Janet Rufin’s Parlor gets a perfect 10 from New York magazine readers’ reviews and a perfect five-star average from more than 280 Citysearchers and 14 Yelpers. > * 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).

About 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.
