Sajal Hubbs brings the ancient art of threading to Bollywood Eyebrow Threading. With quick twists of a cotton fiber, she’s able to shape brows into elegant arches with less irritation than waxing. Sajal also readies brides-to-be with makeup applications, and paints henna onto skin for elaborate body art that lasts up to two weeks.
The beauticians at Silk & Stone connect East and West with a repertoire of Middle Eastern–inspired spa services, products, and workshops that beautify and illuminate members of each culture. Silk & Stone’s resident henna artist develops a lengthy list of retail products, from botanical-based haircare blended with Pakistani, Persian, and Indian recipes to aromatherapy oils. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians perform services including an Ayurvedic facial with complimentary footbath or threading, which allows a technician to accurately pluck facial, hand, and finger hairs from any skin type with imported antibacterial cotton thread. The cultural tradition of henna is brought into sharp focus as artists use the powder to naturally dye the hair, create intricate designs on brides for their wedding day, or teach students tips and tricks for applying the dye to hands, feet, or their invisible friend’s forearm.
Medical director and physician Dr. Stephanie Durham leads a team of beauty experts—including a licensed cosmetologist and naturopathic doctor—in enhancing clients' appearances with noninvasive treatments. Pulling from a diverse collection of lasers, including the Cutera and Titan systems, techs clear unwanted hair or wrinkles, and help tighten the skin. Medical aestheticians customize facials and peels to treat specific skin troubles and gently knead muscles to evict stress.
The spa's decor fosters feelings of calm with warm colors, flickering candles, and comfy leather seats. The facial room acts as a quiet sanctuary for guests, where they may spend their time reading, meditating, or silently counting to 10.
The licensed aestheticians at Oregon Cosmetic Laser power most of their cosmetic treatments with elos technology—a one-two punch of laser energy and radio frequency. That combination helps the Syneron laser remove hair and virtually erase skin blemishes or spider veins. It even makes it possible for the VelaShape device to nearly eliminate cellulite, turning it into ethanol. For slightly less space-age palliatives, the med spa trots out ReFirme and triniti skin-tightening treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions, all of which are performed under the medical direction of Dr. Jason Hong.
Plush pedicure chairs and intimate manicure stations line the citrus-hued walls of 10 Nails & Spa's spotless salon.

Nail techs can also spruce up the hands for upcoming thumb wars with acrylic services, french designs, and creative nail art. 10 Nails & Spa's resident wax wielders remove unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows down to toe knuckles with quick swipes of a cloth strip, including a thorough Brazilian waxing treatment for ladies.
