Brazilian Keratin Treatments are a long-lasting, relaxer-free method of eliminating frizz and making hair smooth, shiny, and easy to style. Using a complex formula with the main ingredient keratin (the protein that makes up hair) and applications of an extremely hot iron, the stylists at Demi Salon will goop your frizz and then iron it into oblivion, leaving each filament of your cuticle-covered follicular filaments infused with natural hair proteins—smoother, silkier, and as shiny as Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize. Also exactly like Al Gore's Peace Prize, Keratin-treated hair must be coddled for a few days, lest kinks and crimps form as the treatment sets, and should be washed with sulfate- and sodium chloride-free shampoos to lengthen the effects. With proper care, a Brazilian Keratin Treatment can last up to a few months, allowing you to meet an entirely new group of friends and trick them into thinking your hair never looked like Dustin Diamond's. Additionally, Demi Salon's streamlined studio, fitted with handsome hardwood floors and an open airy layout, makes it an ideal spot for streamlining your mane and adopting a new, less frazzled alter ego.

The frizz-flattening Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy, which was designed by hair mastermind Peter Coppola, infuses hair with natural keratin, straightening strands and adding a silky, lustrous sheen to each individual filament. The therapy also cuts down on styling time, making hair easy to manage and making it require less product and Gorilla Glue to achieve its ideal look. Once flat-ironed into the hair, the keratin infusion lasts from three to five months depending on hair type and proper care, allowing people to frolic in secure, straight-stranded delight for long lengths of time.

Posh and Polished Nail Spa's technicians artfully shape and polish digit-ends in 20-minute manicures and 40-minute pedicures. Mitts first lounge in a preparatory soak before a sugar scrub, lotion massage, or oil massage soothes palms and hot towels warm fingertips chilled after too many handshakes with overbearing snowmen. Nail-tenders then carefully buffs finger-helmets before coating them with a chosen shade of polish. Toe tips soak blissfully before a sugar or sea-salt scrub exfoliates callused skin and 10 minutes of luxe lotion or oil massage de-stresses arches. Hot towels keep relaxation circulating through feet before a skillful buff and polish ensures that feet look gorgeous in peep-toe stilettos and glass winter boots.

In a crisp white salon adorned with ebony silhouettes of floating leaves, Charming Nail & Spa's nail technicians hone handsome hands and feet with luxurious mani-pedi services. Cushy leather pedicure chairs cushion torsos as feet simmer in soothing warm water to prepare for a thorough paw polishing and to melt away remnants of Arctic tundra work commutes. Manicure mavens then remove rough calluses, refine cuticles, and buff toenails to a healthy glow before applying a layer of eye-catching lacquer. Digit adornments finish up with a thorough buffing, cuticle pushing, polish application, and a lecture on the dangers of rustling through purses.
