Lisa first remedies mangled manes with a thorough fleecing, eliminating problem strands with conventional scissor snips or inoculating outbreaks of filamentary frizzies with a specialty razor cut.

The coloring process takes between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on hair type, style of highlights, and the relative stability of the space-time continuum. Finally, Lisa sculpts newly clipped and lightened tresses into organic headdresses of supernatural beauty, happily honing hairstyles based on patron requests and with the competent sidekickery of Wella and Rusk hair products.
