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.
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.
The initials in AIB Salon stand for "art of Indian beauty," and traditional South Asian beauty techniques are indeed its focus. Stylists can deftly use modern techniques such as Japanese hair-straightening or permanent eyelash extensions, but the team specializes in the ancient art of threading—manipulating 100% cotton threads to remove unwanted facial hair with more speed and precision than waxing, shaving, or tweezing. It's also gentle, since the thread lassoes each hair without causing discomfort to the surrounding skin.
Newly de-fuzzed faces can celebrate with facial treatments that incorporate herbs and even gold. Indeed, a taste for glamour permeates AIB Salon: makeup artists revel in creating jaw-dropping wedding looks and, especially, henna designs almost too elaborate to be believed.
The aestheticians at Perfect Eyebrow Threading keep skin smooth and healthy from the forehead to the ankles. They skillfully manipulate loops of thread to remove facial hair and precisely shape eyebrows and use dollops of warm wax to remove hair from the legs and other areas of the body. Customized skincare treatments promote blemish-free, youthful-looking skin, and eyelash extensions boost natural feminine beauty. To further tempt visitors and Cookie Monsters, complimentary coffee, cold drinks, and cookies are offered.
Miniature lights hang over the salon’s wide orange mirrors, illuminating olive-green walls and cozy leather styling seats. Amid these modern accents, skilled stylists transform hair with flattering layers and bold color highlights. Guests may also request a restorative herbal facial treatment, herbal henna hair coloring, or spruce up eyebrow boundaries with a specialty threading session.
