The white tulip chairs, sleek charcoal and orange décor, and recessed lighting may give Wink Threading Salon a modern feel, but their specialty service is rooted in tradition. Instead of relying on harsh wax, chemicals, or duct tape, the hair removal experts reach for a simple length of antibacterial thread. By twisting the threads together and sweeping them across the skin, the stylists are able to swiftly and precisely uproot stray hairs, creating smooth, sure lines on the brows, upper lip, chin, or forehead. A writer for D Magazine in the feature "The Best Eyebrow Job I've Ever Had" called Wink’s threadong process "less painful…than wax" and "less tedious than tweezing," and even claimed that afterwards she was so pleased that she "could [not] stop looking at [her brows] in the rearview mirror."
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.
The beauty professionals at Legacy Salons & Day Spa love to pamper clients with stylish 'dos, mani-pedis, and body treatments. Several of the stylists have more than 30 years of experience, and all use professional products such as Paul Mitchell, Moroccanoil, and Redken. The salon's massage therapist specializes in deep-tissue, prenatal, and hot-stone massage, as well as yelling at knots until they leave. Clients can also book long-lasting Shellac manicures, Brazilian waxes, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments that leave hair straight and shiny for several weeks.
Centuries-old threading techniques combine with cutting-edge makeup to perfect faces at Just Stringz. GloMinerals makeup uses all-natural ingredients to cover faces with subtle and dramatic looks. The staff uses Dermalogica products to calm acne and smooth fine lines, and tints eyebrows to match a hair color or favorite football team’s colors.
Style by Mary at Sola Salon Studios clears clients' skin of unwanted hair without using harsh chemicals or irritating razors. Instead, she uses an ancient Indian practice called threading—winding hygienic cotton thread around hairs to remove them without disrupting skin—to produce crisp lines during eyebrow- and lip-defuzzing sessions.
