It's easy to feel pampered inside Glam India. As guests enter the coral-colored salon, aestheticians lead them toward the gold-framed mirrors of individual styling stations where they fix up brows, brighten complexions, and decorate skin. Though the staff also excels at waxing treatments, the salon's signature service is threading—a hypoallergenic hair-removal method that relies on twists of cotton thread to quickly and accurately contour eyebrows and remove fuzz from faces without harming the surrounding skin. The beauty experts can also refine visages with one of their signature herbal facials, which call on everything from chocolate to ancient Ayurvedic serums to create glowing complexions and orphaned blackheads. For a more distinctive aesthetic treatment, the staff also uses henna to add a slight reddish tint to hair or draw complex designs on hands.
