Trio Hair Studio flaunts a duo of manicurists, including coproprietor Laura Vivod, a mitt-primping maven who boasts more than two decades of experience. During the Shellac manicure, a talon tamer will thoroughly shape cuticles and cleanse, trim, and file nails, leaving tensomes as spiffy as a freshly laundered space suit. Next, claws garner an ironclad coating of Shellac varnish, an innovative polish that stays shiny and chip-proof for up to two weeks. Clients can rest newly prettied hands during the spa pedicure, as their pintsize piggies receive unparalleled grooming and a classic or offbeat hue of professional OPI polish. A bright red sign shepherds patrons into Trio Hair Studio, where they can mimic poorly crafted wristwatches by unwinding among a neutral-toned interior gussied up with chic brown stools and studio lighting.
