Some of the shop’s favorite products are Therapro (which “rocks out the dry hair blues with volume and healthy shine!”), Redken, Big Sexy, Moroccan oils, It’s a l0, and hair products by Abba and Joico.
According to Karlene “our perms are as close to natural curly hair as you’re ever going to get.” The price, which starts at $58, depends on the length of the locks.
The Electric Pineapple continues to provide wigs for cancer patients. It also participates in Locks of Love, for those who want to donate their hair.
Karlene offers the following promise and invitation to one and all: “The fun is free! You have to experience the Electric Pineapple for your holiday festivities!”
