Hair Therapy Salon's team of creative, skillful stylists snip, style, shade, and strip hair through a variety of expert services. Put feminine strands in the deft hands of a scissor-maneuvering professional for a stylish ladies' cut and style ($35–$42). Or drag a mangy man mane in for a dapper do-over ($25–$29), complete with an optional steamed towel to relax the face and make it more diet-friendly. Fresh trims are easily snagged for lads and lasses ages 1–12 ($15–$25), and stylish teens and self-conscious collies can drop in for a quick bang or beard trim ($8). For those looking to lacquer locks in a different hue, a single color application ($50–$60+) revamps the entirety of the head's nest, and half-head highlights ($60+) add touches of luster that dance in and out of the hair's natural tint. Firm believers that not all follicles are created equally fashionable, the talented filament tamers also apply their landscaping expertise to more bothersome bristle, waxing away stubble from the brow ($15), lip ($12), or chin ($15) to create sleeker expressions and more easily escapable Halloween masks.
The Eastern art of brow threading has become wildly popular in the United States, a trend aesthetician Almas Karowalia astutely followed, enabling her to open 15 locations of Perfect Brow Bar across the Midwest, Texas, and Louisiana. At each outpost, practitioners clean up uneven brows and hairlines with strands of twisted thread that can remove multiple rows of hair with a single pass. Her teams boast that they can complete brows in as little as 5 minutes and require only 10–15 minutes to thread an entire face. The expedient technique generally results in less pain and irritation than other hair-removal methods, though at Perfect Brow Bar patrons can also opt for traditional waxing services. In addition to hair removal, aestheticians dress up skin with makeup applications, lash extensions, and henna tattoos of tuxedos or ball gowns.
