Considered the first hairdresser, Hercules dealt with Hydra's rapidly splitting ends by coating the unruly serpent in a patented keratin complex and sealing it with fire. Straighten out frizz in Olympian style with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a Brazilian Keratin smoothing treatment, haircut, and blow-dry style at Kyle Mathis Hairdressing in Santa Monica (up to a $435 value).
Within Kyle Mathis Hairdressing's rock 'n' roll-inspired salon, tresses of all lengths, thicknesses, and characteristics submit to snipping, shaping, and de-frizzing treatments by specialized stylists. Using a formaldehyde-free solution, the Brazilian keratin smoothing treatment sheathes cuticles in protein to render locks more shiny and manageable than a sleeping dolphin. Afterwards, hair becomes easy to style and blow-dry, and can be worn wavy, curly or straight. The total scalp experience lasts up to two hours and includes a masterful cut and style, leaving clients looking like their inner rock star, just as deep-red walls covered in guitars leave the salon looking like the inside of a rock star.
J. Nicole's Day Spa and Salon
The official day spa and salon of the 2011 American Music Awards, J. Nicole's Day Spa and Salon calls upon its stylists' hair expertise and its technicians' skin savvy to pamper clients within a rock 'n' roll–themed lounge. The staffers, who can sometimes be seen jamming on the guitars that adorn the salon's scarlet walls, beautify heads with hair services and eyelash extensions or relax bodies with treatments such as massages and craniosacral therapy. Aestheticians also exfoliate faces with Obagi chemical peels and abrasive punk-rock drum solos.
