Wink Threading Salon
The white tulip chairs, sleek charcoal and orange décor, and recessed lighting may give Wink Threading Salon a modern feel, but their specialty service is rooted in tradition. Instead of relying on harsh wax, chemicals, or duct tape, the hair removal experts reach for a simple length of antibacterial thread. By twisting the threads together and sweeping them across the skin, the stylists are able to swiftly and precisely uproot stray hairs, creating smooth, sure lines on the brows, upper lip, chin, or forehead. A writer for D Magazine in the feature "The Best Eyebrow Job I've Ever Had" called Wink’s threadong process "less painful…than wax" and "less tedious than tweezing," and even claimed that afterwards she was so pleased that she "could [not] stop looking at [her brows] in the rearview mirror."
