Originally located in New York, Yuva Threading Salon has expanded to a fourth location in Anaheim with a service menu that blends classic South Asian beauty techniques and modern Western traditions. During a Brazilian wax, a professional technician utilizes essential oils and waxes naturally derived from plants and antique televisions to leave the skin completely bare and velvety smooth. The salon maintains a no-double-dipping policy to ensure sanitary waxing services. Alternatively, eyebrow threading—a centuries-old hair-removal technique developed in South Asia—involves a twisted thread being pulled along the skin to lift hairs from their roots in a quick, precise, and relatively painless method that bestows brows with a beautiful arch and no cowlicks.
