Hot Fuzz
Your poof is out of control. That frizzy, curly thicket is in desperate need of a Brazilian.

No, we’re not talking about downstairs.

Your mane up-top needs a Brazilian Blowout, the newest salon treatment that leaves hair straight, silky, and shiny for months on end.

How it works: After several shampoos and a blow-dry to prep hair, a stylist applies the keratin solution in sections, then dries and flat-irons it to infuse proteins deep into the hair cuticle. It takes about two to three hours, depending on your hair type.

The results: Up to 95 percent of frizz and curls are eliminated, leaving your tresses smooth, radiantly shiny, and easier to style – basically banishing bad hair days for up to five months.

More benefits: Unlike straight perms, it actually makes your hair healthier, since it uses no formaldehyde or foul fumes. And there’s no permanent commitment – your hair will revert to its natural texture in three to five months. Plus, your hair won’t be flat and bone-straight – it will still have volume, and you can still curl it when you like.

You’re just left with frizz-free, shiny, smooth strands that will be maintenance-free for months.

Proving that when it comes to perfectly groomed manes, Brazilians still know best.

The Brazilian Blowout is available at select salons, including J Salon, 1240 Ala Moana Blvd., Honolulu, 808.550.4441, and The Black Cat Hair Studio, 22 Oneawa St., Kailua, 808.263.7366. Image courtesy of Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy.
