Elisabeth Hair & Nails' professional team performs manicures and pedicures using acrylic and gel polishes, smoothen epidermises with waxing services and body-sugaring sessions, and lift stress from backsides with five massage modalities. Staffers also meticulously interlace headscapes with AAA-grade Indian Remy human hair extensions, which can be fused for semi-permanent placement or rendered removable so clients can speedily switch their appearance while sneaking multiple cheese samples at the supermarket. During luxurious massage treatments, therapists quench all skin types with fragrance-free oils rich in vitamin E, jojoba, sunflower, and minerals. A warm towel wrap concludes each session, resulting in the ultimate softening experience.

Situated just a few kilometres from the University of Manitoba, Electric for Hair offers a break from the daily grind.
