For some salons, threading is just an afterthought—a treatment tacked onto a long list of services in an attempt to stay abreast of the latest trends. But at Exquisite Threading, the ancient Indian art is front and center, headlining a treatment menu that bears little else beyond facials, body waxing, and intricate henna treatments. The focus allows the shop's eyebrow artists, who average 10 years of experience, to concentrate on creating clean, elegant arches in an environment free from the din of blow dryers. The threading process relies solely upon the quick loopings of a 100% cotton string, which whisks away facial hair without the irritation of shaving or the seasonal limitations of bobbing for hot caramel apples.:
