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.
When it comes to managing body hair, the specialists at Aria Threading Salon & Spa know exactly what to do. Around eyes, they use thread to shape and define brows or enhance peepers with glamorous eyelash extensions. To lessen hirsute appearances, they apply bleach to fuzzy patches and waxes away tufts from bikini lines with a chocolate wax or a combination of honey, lemon, and sugar. As for skin, the salon and spa offers nourishing facials and microdermabrasion to unclog pores and whisk away dead skin.

The specialists at Eyebrow Perfection don't try to juggle a multitude of spa treatments; instead, they focus on just one service: threading hair removal. With more than 20 years of experience, the team sweeps away unwanted facial fuzz with an ancient Eastern technique that uses pure cotton thread, omitting the need for harsh chemicals and waxes.
The staff of Lash Lab OC prides itself on the ability to beautify guests with the latest techniques in eyelash extension application. Natural-looking eyelash extensions transform eye fringe to lush, thick lashes that will make the mirror crack in bashfulness. The staff members are also trained in safely and naturally applying permanent makeup and performing spa-grade facials and body wraps.
Beyond Beauty Lashes occupies an unconventional space inside a poker supply warehouse, and according to a feature that OC Weekly writer Michelle Woo penned in praise of the salon, a visit to one of their three private treatment rooms can yield big results. That's because the spot's extensionist, who has been in the business for 10 years, meticulously elongates eyelashes using synthetic extensions with the option to upgrade to silk or mink options harvested humanely from live animals, just like the cookies harvested from cookie monsters. Clients can choose from various lengths, thicknesses, and colors to achieve their desired look. The extensions typically last 60–100 days, shedding gradually with natural lashes.
