Since 2004, Spirals Salon has specialized in cutting and treating naturally springy hair, though the highly accredited staff expertly services all hair types, including straight and writhing Medusean serpent strands. The Brazilian Blowout treatment especially caters to wavy, curly, frizzy, or damaged hair, coating each hair shaft with an enchanting brew of nutrients, proteins, polymers, and pixie tears, all to smooth jagged cuticles. The stylist first shampoos locks with anti-residue shampoo before a vigorous towel drying. Next, the mollycoddled mop is sectioned and dusted with a gentle, ghost-free solution. Happy head-hedges are then blow-dried straight, flat-ironed, rinsed, coated with a 60-second conditioning masque, and smoothed and dried again. After 90 minutes in the chair, the customer sashays out the door with a swishy mane that stays super sleek for up to 12 weeks. Blow drying and flat-ironing become a thing of the past, like a Studebaker fueled with pulverized Dodo eggs.

At Presidio Hair & Nails, seasoned manicurist Kim calls upon 18 years of nail-salon experience to buff and beautify clients’ appendage-enders. The skilled beautician dolls up digits by adhering a french acrylic nail to each fingernail, shielding scratchers in style mined from below the streets of Paris. Once nails begin to grow out, clients can schedule a follow-up fill appointment to extend the acrylic nails' lifespan. Alternatively, Kim can pamper both hands and feet with a mani-pedi that meticulously neatens, shapes, and polishes finger- and toenails.
