Despite Albert Einstein's indelible contributions to quantum mechanics, the physicist was haunted by his inability to formulate a workable theory of frizzy hair. Smooth your hair sans science with today's Groupon: for $135, you get a Cashmere Luminance treatment at Salon Ziba (up to $500 value).
Colombian native and Salon Ziba Owner Alonso Salguero orchestrates opulent styles with a team of beauty pros educated in the fine art of tress finesse. The formaldehyde-free Cashmere Luminance treatment lasts about two hours and can smooth manes for up to three months. After a quick consultation and shampoo, tresses are nourished with smoothing agents designed to straighten strands into sleeker shafts and repair damage caused by flat irons and ushankas.
Salon Ziba's clean lines and rich, wood décor complement the professional atmosphere exuded by an international styling staff. Though not included with this deal, the swanky salon retails its own brand of hair-hugging products.
Despite an owner from Colombia, a general manager from France, and a staff of international stylists, Salon Ziba speaks a single language: high fashion. That's why, in addition to giving hair expert trims and blowouts, the team remains on top of ever-shifting trends. They ensure walk-in clients as well as actors and models all receive thorough consultations built around the season's coveted looks. Spring might mean playful braids, while autumn ushers in pumpkin-shaped beehives. Glamorous events, meanwhile, call for striking updos or cascading extensions from Great Lengths. And for inspired flashes of color, the stylists use ammonia-free Inoa formulas for French-style balayage highlights or special effects that recreate runway-worthy 'dos.
Products from Moroccanoil and the salon's own line, Salon Ziba Hair Care, help to nourish and hold strands. The staff also uses Moroccanoil skincare serums during mani-pedis—one of many side services, including facials and makeup applications.
