Because hair grows at approximately 1 centimeter each month, the professional hair artists at My Fancy Strands perform specialized extension treatments to save clients from waiting several years for longer locks. Before setting to work, the stylists consult with clients and examine strands and hair types to determine the ideal application methods for new extensions. These techniques include braidless weaves, cold fusions, microlinks, and microrings, all of which eschew damaging methods such as applying excessive heat to hair or feeding it human growth hormones. With more than 51 hair colors and a variety of textures to choose from, Fancy Strands’ stock of faux strands blends in with natural hair of all kinds to fool even the most inquisitive comb-wielding school nurse.
Inside Spa & Nails 21, nails take center stage as more than just itch scratchers. Nail technicians transform them into pieces of art, sporting smooth edges with zero cuticle overgrowth encroaching on designs. The techs also soften rough surfaces of skin, ensuring hands and feet are soft enough to mash a delicious pot of potatoes. Postgrooming, they top nails with a colorful polish or long-lasting gel polish that remains chip-free for weeks.
