If you have frizzy, damaged or unmanageably curly hair, there’s nothing quite like a Brazilian blowout for getting the hair you’ve always dreamed of. This straightening treatment coats the hair in keratin and seals it with a preservative treatment that gives you glossy, voluminous hair that is up to 80 percent straighter than the hair you walked in with. A good Brazilian blowout can be pricey, but it can also last up to three months if it’s done correctly. The faster you settle into a steady routine, the better your results, so it’s important to find a quality place to do your Brazilian blowouts right from the start.

Twilight Hair Salon
849 Beacon St.
Boston, MA 02215
(617) 859-4940

Don’t let the name fool you. Twilight Hair Salon is named for its flexible evening hours and not for teenage vampire romance novels. The salon offers a full range of hair care services including cuts, color and, of course, Brazilian blowouts. Rachel seems to be the clients’ stylist of choice but you’ll find everyone at Twilight Hair Salon to be friendly and very knowledgeable about the blowout process.

Salon 26
26 Parmenter St.
Boston, MA 02113

Salon 26 is a real gem for Bostonians. What you can expect from this salon is the same great service you’d get at a much larger salon but at a much more agreeable price. As with most places in the North End, parking can be tricky, so get there early if you’re driving. But the salon has a great big window opening out to the street, making it ideal for people watching while you get your Brazilian blowout.

Liquid Hair Studios
640 Tremont St.
Boston, MA 02118
(617) 425-4848

Liquid Hair Studio looks more like a colorful club than a hair salon. But that doesn’t mean it’s all about the atmosphere. Liquid Hair Studios is one of the best spots in Boston to get an amazing haircut and color. Besides having already great prices for services, one way this salon really stands out is the periodic deals it sometimes offers. If you’re on the fence about whether you’re ready for a Brazilian blowout, go once and you’ll quickly realize you shouldn’t have waited so long.
