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 $149, you get a Brazilian Blowout Zero hair-smoothing treatment at Old Towne Hair Design & Colour Studio in Leesburg (a $350 value).
Under the dual direction of style veterans Michelle LeHeureux and Kim Southerland-Keene, Old Towne Hair Design & Colour Studio beautifies and styles coifs with artistic techniques and gentle products. During the 90-minute Brazilian blowout, strands soak in Brazilian Blowout Zero products that mollify frizz and straighten locks without the use of harmful formaldehyde. The serum seals essential amino acids into the cuticle of each strand using a proprietary plant-derived bonding system, leaving even thin coifs with more root volume, much like fertilizing a flower patch with Wheaties. After the treatment, curls and kinks unwind into gentle waves, and head gardens remain guarded against humidity for up to 12 weeks.
