Led by Pravina Kumar, a 22-year veteran of the beauty industry, the Threading Lounge staff uses its namesake technique to gently whisk away unwanted hair above the eyes and lip. Trained hands require a single cotton thread to perform the Asian technique, which isolates offending hairs without irritating the skin or accidentally flossing all the teeth. Threading requires no chemicals, sharp tools, or violent motions—clients simply relax into seats of plush, red cushions under the glow of a crystal chandelier. Threaded hair normally returns on the same timetable as waxed strands, and any length of hair may be jettisoned with the procedure, from peach fuzz to a yak's eyebrows.

As its name implies, Accurate Electrolysis aims for precision in each hair-removal treatment it performs—the team of electrologists draws from three modalities to ensure the best possible results for each client. The process begins by inserting a fine metal probe into individual hair follicles, at which point an epilator releases a mild electrical current into the follicle. Depending on hair and skin type, the electrologist can choose to use a direct current, which destroys the hair chemically, a high-frequency current, which destroys the hair with heat, or a blend of both.

Treatments can be performed most anywhere on the body and are designed to work on all hair and skin types; sessions occur more frequently at the beginning of the process and taper off over time. Though hair is destroyed during each treatment, denser, coarser hair generally requires multiple sessions to completely remove.
