The aesthetic experts at Pearl Beauty Salon offer services ranging from henna tattoos and nine types of facials to their signature process: threading. During threading sessions, technicians precisely shape brows by twisting a cotton thread over the face's surface and removing hair at the follicle level. The technique is commonly found in India, China, and hammocks, where it occurs accidentally during naps. Threading can be less painful than other hair-removal methods, is effective even on sensitive skin, and simultaneously exfoliates away dead skin cells.
At locations in Colleyville and Watauga, Universal Threading Salon & Spa's technicians twist lengths of cotton thread to pull out unwanted facial hair from the root. Threading isn't the only beauty technique borrowed from ancient Eastern traditions: they decorate visitors' hands with the intricate, lacy henna designs known as mehndi. Along with dressing up arms, they relax hands by rendering stress-melting massages or slowly easing your grip off the jackhammer. Microdermabrasion and Dermalogica facials further underscore the spa's dedication to smooth, glowing skin, which can complement the application of lash extensions or permanent makeup.
Though her skin- and body-care treatments may seem comparable to those found at a traditional spa, aesthetician Samantha Smith strives for clinical rather than superficial results with each service. The owner and head aesthetician at Elite Skin Solutions continually furthers her beauty know-how through ongoing education: after completing a 750-hour esthetology program in 2010, she enrolled in a nursing program so that she could offer clients the latest med-spa services. Her treatments—which include facials, chemical peels, and nonsurgical face-lifts—rely on physician-grade products and innovative technologies such as microcurrents, microskin needling, and PCA Skin products to produce optimal results with minimal downtime.
The Threading Studio's owner, Sunita Singh, described her ancient hair-removal method to the Star-Telegram as something that requires an artist's keen interest and eye for design, adding "I'm very picky." Singh learned threading in her hometown of Bangalore, India, and has honed her dexterity for more than five years. With a single cotton thread, expert brow sculptors whisk out entire rows, shaping elegant, smooth arches and working on a grid pattern to nab unwanted follicles from delicate facial skin. NBC 5 reported that Singh can complete an eyebrow session in less than two minutes, and that the process is suitable for individuals who use retinoid creams for acne or aging.
