The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
A soft glow of gold emanates from within Asha Salon and Spa, enticing guests to enter into its spacious haven covered in sunset-colored hues and irregular amber tiles. But the d?cor isn't Asha Salon's only distinctive feature. The beauty haven also attracts patrons with a menu of Indian-influenced treatments and bridal packages. Along with henna hair dying and facial threading, guests are beautified with mehandi art, which consists of intricate designs hand-drawn across the back of the hands and over the palms. Back in vibrantly colored treatment rooms, aestheticians ward off signs of aging with herb and fresh fruit-infused facials, while a Shahnaz Husain's diamond treatment exfoliates the outer layers of the skin with finely granulated diamonds. And out on the salon floor, stylists tailor haircuts to meet each clients' desired style, be it a father's buzz cut or a his kid's request for a three-foot pompadour.
