At Heritage Threading Salon, a versatile staff brings beauty and flair to the foreground of both genders. In their namesake service, threading specialists ensnare unwanted locks within twists of fine cotton thread, which enables them to remove an entire row of hair with swift precision. For more favored hairs, stylists cut, shape, and color 'dos at individual salon stations. Facials and waxing help to smooth fine lines and prep bodies for bikini season, and skilled henna artists adorn limbs with intricate floral designs, weaving patterns, and bar-exam cheat sheets.

Every appointment at Eve Michael Salon & Spa is designed to be an indulgent escape for clients. But an emphasis on relaxation doesn't mean the staff skimps on services. Rather, the team relies on cosmetic products selected for both their efficacy and their natural formulas. Aestheticians employ Yon-Ka's essential oils and plant extracts to hydrate and cleanse the skin during facial treatments. To better remove unwanted stubble, they use strip or hard waxes on the body, and gentle lavender and chamomile formulas on the face. The salon's stylists only need their shears and hair-whispering skills to design eye-catching new 'dos, although they can add colorful accents with Wella tints. Should additional pampering be in order, massage therapists soothe tense muscles with Swedish or deep-tissue modalities, or more specialized reflexology techniques.
The skin-care salon specializes in European-style treatments, thanks to owner Lavinia Borcau's upbringing in Romania, where she learned to blend the techniques of modern skin care with Old World philosophies. As a result, Lavinia Borcau Skin Care's staff of experienced aestheticians is particularly lauded for its waxing treatments, which are performed using natural beeswax sans natural bees for much-needed pain reduction. This wax will be used for the entire Brazilian bikini depilatory experience ($60), allowing you to samba away the summer without suffering embarrassing friction burns. Finally, an infrared sauna treatment ($35) will drain body swamps of toxins and unused terror sweat while rejuvenating humid brains with a clarifying dry heat. A shower will be immediately available for cleaning off any liquid mercury or dark humors that get evacuated from your pores.

Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure.
