The aestheticians at Divine Threading Studio treat clients to services as modern as Dermalogica facials and as traditional as henna tattoos. The salon specializes in depilation treatments, which remove hair using either the familiar heated-wax method or the ancient Eastern threading technique that's considered more appealing to people with sensitive skin. The aestheticians also showcase their precise handiwork by applying intricately designed henna tattoos, which weave their way up the hands and arms of brides-to-be or clients who want to test-drive a tattoo design for a few weeks. For a finishing touch, clients can ask for an ear or nose piercing, face accessories as stylish as Mr. Potato Head's during Fashion Week.
Thanks to its recent remodel, one might be surprised to hear that the salon and spa known as Christopher Stephens has pampered clients with personalized beauty treatments for the past 15 years. The salon’s stylists draw on the experience amassed in that period to add length and definition to manes with 100% human-hair extensions and bioionic straightening tools. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians brighten complexions with seven types of facials and bronze skin with UV-free airbrush-tanning solutions. Whether styling hair or scraping off the sticky remnants of a nightly cocoon, Christopher Stephens’s staff members pride themselves on using professional beauty products from brands such as OPI, Keratin Complex, and BareMinerals.

Inside The Skin Spa & Wellness Center's cozy boutique atmosphere, massage therapists and aestheticians pluck products from around the world to soothe individual complaints. Aestheticians pamper fa?ades with mud imported from Italy or exfoliate dry skin with Hungarian salt. During massage services, aromatherapy hailing from France sends nose receptors on exotic vacations. To reap the full benefits of each facial, waxing, or body service, the staff recommends booking services in advance to block out a time slot and ensure unhurried, leisurely service.
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.
