Like puppies, heads of hair need to be pampered regularly, or they’ll leave a mess on the couch and act up every time you roll down the car windows. Calm unruly coiffures with today’s Groupon: for $85, you get a Brazilian Blowout or Keratin Coppola hair-smoothing treatment at Mystique Hair Studio in Huntington Beach (up to a $350 value).
The licensed stylists at Mystique Hair Studio iron out frizz with shine-boosting, restorative Brazilian Blowout or Coppola Keratin Complex treatments. Sessions begin with a consultation in which coif captains evaluate the client's curls by counting the number of pencils entangled therein. Then either formula binds each strand in a protective straight jacket of natural protein, which conditions even heavily processed and damaged tresses while smoothing the cuticle. Searing glances from a blow dryer and a hot iron seal in the serum and leave manes glowing.
New fringe remains straight, manageable, and smooth enough to roller skate on for up to 12 weeks with the Brazilian Blowout formula or up to five months with the Coppola treatment. The duration of visits may vary depending on the length and texture of each client's 'do, with quicker sessions lasting roughly 90 minutes.
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.
