Found: The Must-Try Treatment for Bangin’ Hair

If you were to ask any of the best hairdressers in Melbourne what the number one client request is, they'll all tell you: smooth, shiny, frizz-free hair. 

You know what we're talking about here (probably cos you've requested it yourselves) – it's the type of hair you find yourself admiring in a magazine, whilst you simultaneously curse the mop you were born with. Tresses that have just the right amount of body and generally look perfect 24/7. Locks that can be found only in the land of dreams (What? You don't dream about having stellar hair every day?!).

Well, dear Urban Listers, dream no more because leading Melbourne hairdresser Three Blind Mice are now offering the hair treatment that everyone's buzzing about – the Brazilian Blowout.

To be honest, we're not surprised that Three Blind Mice have added the must-try hair straightening treatment to their service menu. The Hawthorn-based hair salon is known for hot-off-the-catwalk cuts, bold colours, incredible styling and deep-conditioning treatments, so of course the much talked about Brazilian Blowout is part of their repertoire!

Being the curious (and hair obsessed) cats we are, we sat down with one of our fave Melbourne hairdressers, Emma Durbridge, co-director of Three Blind Mice, to find out more about the Brazilian Blowout and why it's the must-try treatment this season.

Read on, Urban Listers…perfect hair awaits!


You know how we were talking about dreams before? Well the Brazilian Blowout is the stuff said dreams are made of.

In all seriousness though, the Brazilian Blowout is a keratin smoothing treatment that nourishes the hair and tames any curls or frizz, leaving you with the type of shiny, swingy, Victoria's Secret style hair you've always craved. (Editor's note: For those curious, there's absolutely NO nasty formaldehyde used).

The best part? The Brazilian Blowout lasts between two to four months. Yes, you read right. At least two glorious months of smooth, frizz-free, wash 'n' go hair that is a total breeze to style. YES, YES, AND SO MUCH YES.


The Brazilian Blowout hair straightening treatment starts off with your hair being thoroughly washed before the treatment is applied in sections. During this time, the product penetrates the hair shaft, working its magic so that by treatment's end, your hair is shiny, smooth and strong.

We won't lie though, booking in for a Brazilian Blowout isn't an in 'n' out type of visit – depending on the length of your hair, you'll need to set aside roughly 2.5 hours for the treatment. That said, Three Blind Mice is the type of Melbourne hair salon where the team bend over backwards to make you feel at home, so just sit back, relax and get excited for your soon to be frizz-free hair.


In short? Pretty. Much. Anyone.

Regardless of whether your hair is short, long, fine, thick, dry, damaged, never been kissed (by colour), dyed every shade under the sun or something else altogether, the Brazilian Blowout can be performed on your tresses. Winning!

It's particularly great if you have crazy, out-of-control hair that simply refuses to bow down to any smoothing, straightening, frizz-fighting product you apply (errr, that would definitely be my mop!), instead deciding to throw a frizz party at the merest hint of humidity or rain.

You'll also love the Brazilian Blowout if you're generally short on time, and want hair that you can wash, easily style and then go without spending hours on end in front of the mirror.

So Urban Listers, with party season and summer beach sessions on the horizon, could there be a more perfect time to get the Brazilian Blowout done? We think not. The Three Blind Mice team are ready and waiting to see you – simply call 03 9077 5690 to book and get ready for a summer's worth of perfect hair!
