Having frizzy, unkempt hair can make you appear disoriented and unhinged during job interviews, first dates, and shouting matches with the neighbor's bush. Keep it together with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a Brazilian Blowout Zero hair-smoothing treatment (a $250 value) at Trouble Salon in Greenwood Village.
The stylists at the chic Trouble Salon boast 25 years of experience and special certification for smoothing curls and calming frizz with formaldehyde-free Brazilian Blowout Zero. Sidestepping harsh chemicals, the treatment relies on plant-derived KeraSafe to effectively infuse looser curls with a blend of amino acids. Clients unwind in massage chairs, and may sip beer or wine as gentle hands infuse their locks with the serum via a network of tiny aqueducts. Essential proteins seep into the hair's cuticle and bind the shaft in a conditioning straight jacket, which blow dryers and flatirons then seal and straighten into glimmering falls. The process wraps up the look after about 90 minutes, or the length of a mayfly's childhood, and radiant coifs may retain their newfound sleekness for up to 12 weeks.
Modern accents transform Trouble Salon into a sumptuous retreat with abstract paintings and modular couches in the reception area. Shades of red on the couch cushions and reception desk add to the rich aesthetic, and draw in style-conscious bulls for services. Massive mirrors in gilded frames and the occasional cheetah-print armchair brighten up the white walls and streamlined furniture.
No opportunity for relaxation is overlooked at Trouble Salon. Just inside the entrance, plush red couches laden with pillows sit behind a red curtain. Adding to this ambiance are modern paintings and the occasional lit candle. Hair services start at shampooing stations, where comfy massage chairs soothe muscles while the stylists do their work.
Once situated at the styling stations, clients continue to be put at ease by the staff's expertise in many areas of hair care. In addition to cuts, the beauty experts can add vivid highlights, smooth out hair with Brazilian Blowouts, or add extra inches with extensions, helping clients finally reach the hair-length requirements for roller coasters. The staff also includes aestheticians, who administer eyelash extensions or wax away unwanted hair from the face and underarms.
