Having frizzy, unkempt hair can make you appear disoriented and unhinged during job interviews, first dates, and shouting matches with the neighbour's bush. Keep it together with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a KeraSmooth hair-smoothing treatment at Salon Allure Spa (a $400 value). Clients with shoulder-length hair or longer may be charged an additional $25 fee.
The trained stylists at Salon Allure Spa tame wild manes with KeraSmooth anti-frizz treatments. During the two-hour session, a hair whisperer applies a protein-rich serum that wraps strands in a protective coating to fight frizz and cut blow-drying time in half. Unruly locks succumb to the FDA-approved treatment, leaving neck-toppers with a coat as manageable as a team of rule-following paint-by-number artists. The short session leaves tresses straightened and frizz-free for up to three months.
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.
Salon Allure Spa
Two women—each with more than 15 years of professional experience—head up Salon Allure Spa. Mary Matias oversees the salon side, where stylists perform everything from cut and colour services to bonded hair extensions and formaldehyde-free KeraSmooth treatments. Aesthetician and makeup artist Maria Zindros helms the spa, where the service menu is focused on skin and beauty treatments. Eight specialty facials target issues such as acne and dryness, and waxing and brow and lash tinting accentuate freshly cleansed skin. Stylists also offer pedicures and no-chip manicures, as well as massages with aromatherapy and hot stones.
