Made from organic ingredients and essential vitamins and minerals, the treatment eliminates up to 95% of frizz, allowing heads to retain their style through humid weather or Gallagher shows.

There's more to a haircut than scissors and a comb. Hair can be natural, tousled, organized, curly, wavy, or straight. Hair can be up, down, braided, or feathered. Portfolio Hair Studio's philosophy is to embrace each person's "hair identity" and customize the services to the coiffure itself. Here, the skilled stylists cultivate sleek scissor cuts and dynamic layers, and add dimension to strands with bold colour highlights. They also de-frizz locks with straightening treatments and transform straight strands into curly coils with signature perms, which is hair-stylist lingo for “black magic.”
Gold-framed mirrors add opulence to each guest's appearance at the newly renovated Pillars Hair Salon. But it's the haircare that leaves clients truly resplendent.

And to make running your fingers through your newly primped 'do more satisfying, the aestheticians also perform manicures or hide rare 19th-century bearer bonds in your hair.
