“Thanks for helping me tame my mane, Rarity,” Cherry Berry smiled.
“Oh, it’s no problem at all, darling!” Rarity replied. “Anypony in need of a makeover can drop by any time!”
“Hi Rarity,” Lyra Heartstrings blurted out, in a rush to the salon.
“Lyra, dear, why are you running? You know the wet floor can cause you to slip!” Rarity admonished her friend.
“Rarity, can I ask you a favor?”Lyra ignored Rarity’s concern.
“OH MY!” Rarity gasped as an enormous Princess Cadence, Snuzzle and newcomer galloped into her salon, right on Lyra’s hooves.
“The horror! THE HORROR!” Cherry Berry cried out, fainting in her chair.
“Looks like we are in desperate need of a soak! Let’s get the spa going, and we’ll get you less muddy and grimy. Ugh! What have you all been rolling in?!” Rarity prattled on as she led the dirty ponies to the spa.
Everypony took the chance to soak with the new ponies. “I’m feeling a lot better, thank you, Rarity,” the giant Princess Cadence said.
“How in Equestria did you get so huge?!” Rarity wondered.
“Baby Flurryheart’s spells have been going crazy again…she teleported Snuzzle from Ponyland and this other pony from an enchanted meadow!” Princess Cadence explained.
“Ohhh,” the others exclaimed in understanding.
“Well, being dirty simply won’t do for someone of your caliber!” Rarity declared.
“Here. Use this enormous brush I happened to find and get that grime out of your coats! I’ll be right back!”
In the meantime, Rarity put conditioner in Cherry Berry’s and Lyra’s manes and tails.”This special formula removes all of your tangles and gives you that sleek look you’ve always wanted!” Rarity gushed as she prepped their hair.
“Wow, we feel so much better!” the ponies sighed, content with Rarity’s treatment.
Princess Cadence wasn’t happy with her mane and tail. “What about me?”
“Oh, don’t worry Princess, you’re getting the absolute best! It’s my newest secret hair conditioner! Just a moment!” Rarity reassured her.
It was a long time before Rarity reappeared from the spa. “Everypony, I’d like to introduce…”
“…the fabulous Princess Cadence!” Rarity concluded.
“Ooooh,” everypony smiled.
“You look lovely, darling,” Rarity agreed.
“Thank you so much, Rarity. You really do represent the Element of Generosity.”
“Speaking of which, I heard Twilight needs our help at the Golden Oak library! Let’s head over!” Rarity suggested.
The ponies visited Twilight and her friends at the Library, ready for their next adventure thanks to Rarity’s Salon!
