Jillian's talented team buffs up fading cuticle bonnets and styles follicular drapery by combining honed techniques with top-notch products from brands such as Pureology and OPI. With each manicure service, doting detailers file, smooth, and shape finger shingles, before slathering surfaces in a Shellac polish to leave them as radiant as a volcano-powered light bulb for up to two weeks. Those whose nails already dazzle can opt for a thorough head-edit. Each styling session begins with a shampoo to purge noodle nests of old gum and Bazooka Joe comic strips. Then hair whisperers trim tresses into accentuating face frames and blow-dry mangled manes into fashionable 'dos. To further follicular transformations, take 20% off an eyebrow wax, which bolsters crumbling arches and leaves expressers of surprise functioning properly.

From the outside, Social Agenda Salon and Boutique looks traditional. It's housed in a white bungalow marked with a wide picture window and bright-blue awning, surrounded by trees and greenery. But inside, a team of professional beautifiers ardently pores over the latest trends. Stylists coil and cut locks into diverse looks, from edgy pixie cuts textured with crimped pieces to vintage-inspired dos and intricate braids. Nail techs brighten fingertips with no-chip Shellac and a rainbow of OPI shades that make hands stand out like a penguin at a nightclub for polar bears.
Inside the studio, the team keeps things homey and relaxed. While they wait, visitors indulge in a handful of freshly popped popcorn, a mug of coffee, or a cold Coke, or stroll around the back patio to enjoy complimentary views of the sky.
