Like your music collection or a public reading of your dream journal, a haircut says a lot about you. Control the message with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a Brazilian blowout at Luisa’s Salon and Spa in Lago Vista (a $250 value).
The coif artists at Luisa’s Salon and Spa diffuse frizz and unkink curls with the smoothing ministrations of a 90-minute Brazilian blowout treatment. Licensed stylists coat strands in a chemical formula that loosens up tightly bound curls into soft, flowing waves. A protein-fortified layer smoothes cuticles to deflate the frizziness that causes unkempt ‘dos and sparrow infestations. The treatment promotes hair health and shine, allowing bearers quick, painless beauty routines for four to eight weeks.
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.
Luisa's Salon and Spa
Owner Luisa Velasquez-Lopez's multitalented staff of stylists and aestheticians approaches clients with a wealth of technical expertise and practical experience. Attentive stylists take each client's vision to heart to craft runway-worthy manes for men and women with a comprehensive repertoire of haircuts, conditioning treatments, and coloring services. Aestheticians pamper visages with an arsenal of hydrating masks chock-full of wholesome ingredients—including milk, honey, and European seaweed—to leave visages looking as youthful as Dorian Gray's baby pictures. A massage therapist wicks away muscular stress with soothing Swedish techniques, listening to clients’ needs before delivering full-body relaxation or kneadings focused on one particular problem area.
