Inside a glass- and aquamarine-accented beauty studio, Nanu Threading attends to all manner of skincare needs with hair removal and facial services. Experienced threading specialists swiftly drag a twisted strand of cotton string across the face to remove unwanted follicles. Clients also come in for soothing spa facials and the salon's henna tattoos—intricate, semi-permanent artwork drawn onto clients' hands or distracted clients' gloves.
Named after the colorful bracelets that jangle on the wrists of many Indian women, Ruby’s Bangles gives its patrons an opportunity to partake in ancient Eastern beauty rituals. In the spa, aestheticians use eyebrow threading techniques inspired by Egyptian beauty rituals to remove unwanted hair. Skilled henna artists can transform hands and feet with dramatic plant-ink designs. The store's boutique boasts a wide selection of Indian-inspired jewelry, including bindis, necklaces, bangles, and hip chains for belly dancing or keeping prank-prone jeans from running away.
Led by Dr. Vadim Gurvits, the staff at Premier Laser & Day Spa is also composed of a registered nurse and licensed skincare specialist. Together, this expert crew caters to clients with everything from simple cosmetic treatments—such as waxing and microdermabrasion—to advanced laser services, including tattoo removal, vein therapy, and anticellulite treatments.
At Xtreme Beauty Hair Salon, amid potted plants and hardwood floors, stylist Victoria draws on years of hair styling experience to snip chic cuts and saturate strands with rich color. Patrons can also opt for treatments such as hair and eyelash extensions, teeth whitening, or keratin blowouts.
