A sleek new ’do adds style while removing split ends, stubborn cowlicks, and rogue velcro sneakers trapped in your hair. Reshape your look with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a Brazilian Blowout or Brazilian Blowout Zero at salonMar (a $300 value).
The seasoned, eponymous stylist of salonMar specializes in Brazilian Blowout and Brazilian Blowout Zero treatments designed to outfit clients with sleeker, frizz-free manes for up to 12 weeks. After a one-on-one consultation, Mar begins the smoothing process by detangling hair and removing traffic cones to pave a clear thoroughfare for a specially formulated anti-residue shampoo. Once tresses are towel-dried and split into four sections, a Brazilian Blowout elixir forges a protective protein layer from root to tip. Though this doesn't repair or remove split ends, the treatment does aim to repair chemical damage and strengthening strands against further breakage. A blow-dry ousts lingering moisture, and then the stylist glazes over each hair quadrant up to 10 times with a professional-grade infrared flatiron. The procedure concludes with the Brazilian Blowout smoothing serum and a finishing blow-dry by a huffing and puffing wolf.
For first-time clients, salonMar eschews special haircare tools in favor of easy-to-follow styling instructions that can be mimicked at home or during jury duty. The Brazilian Blowout's açai-berry after-care maintenance line (not included with today's Groupon) can help extend the life of results.
