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. Tame tresses for easy scaling with today's Groupon to The "IT" Factor Hair Studio in Stratford. Choose between the following options:
- For $150, you get your choice of a Brazilian blowout hair treatment (a $300 value) or a keratin-complex smoothing therapy (a $350 value).
- For $30, you get $60 worth of salon services.
The "IT" Factor Hair Studio lavishes scalps with several hair de-frizzing solutions alongside a lineup of traditional salon services. Teach wild manes the importance of etiquette with a Brazilian blowout or keratin-complex treatment, each designed to impart long-lasting smoothness to spiraled, crinkly strands. The Brazilian blowout, which takes from 1–3.5 hours, begins with a specially formulated shampoo and a suite of Grover Cleveland trivia questions in prep for the treatment. A specialist then coats and combs each thread with the proprietary solution, which straightens twists and curls to leave hair looking sleek and shiny for up to 12 weeks. Alternately, the keratin-complex smoothing therapy, which encases each follicle with a keratinous bond, takes one to three hours and lends the hair a straightened disposition that can last three to five months, or until the second week of being nested by turkey vultures.
Alternately, guests can coddle their coif with a variety of other hair services. Treat tresses to a haircut (starting at $20) and blow-dry (starting at $35), or wrap up threads in rollers (starting at $30).
