Less painful than traditional plucking, this ancient technique strips brows of superfluous fuzz in pristine, mirror-lined space
Warm leaf-green walls ascend from a sprawling hardwood floor at Sizzor Trix, where friendly beauty boosters tend to nails and hair in equal measure. The waiting area’s black leather loveseats overlook an immaculate, mirror-lined space where shears snip through men’s and women’s haircuts, and a mani-pedi station renovates digits. Patrons sink into a plush pedicure chair that, unlike those at most conventional salons, comes equipped with a foot-soaking tub not swarming with orphaned jellyfish. With gentle hands and sharp eyes, an expert eyebrow threader excises superfluous strands using the ancient method, less painful than traditional plucking, of tying thin cotton threads through brows to speedily strip foreheads.
