Nusrat, the cosmetologist and owner of Ashi Beauty Corner, specializes in correcting botched waxing jobs. "A vast majority of my clients have come to me due to having been previously 'brow-butchered,'" she said. As a remedy, she practices threading—an ancient hair-removal method that requires a thin string and nimble fingers.
Prior to each treatment, Nusrat loops a sterile thread around both her hands and tugs the loose end with her teeth. As she rolls the thread across the skin's surface, she traps unwanted hair and extracts it at the follicle level. Because threading avoids the use of topical agents, it's traditionally indicated for people with allergies or sensitive skin. Compared to waxing, it's often regarded as more precise—the technician can target one individual hair or an entire row of unruly threads.
Nusrat performs these treatments in private quarters. "The ambiance makes clients feel surrounded in comfort and enveloped by personal, attentive service," she said. Her personal studio resides within The Salons at Bella Suites, which lives inside Firewheel Town Center, which is nested within the belly of a matryoshka doll.
Body wraps are inherently pleasant; they help people work towards beauty goals, but they're also warm and comforting. Tonayia Davidson, proprietor of Tonayia's Wax Pot, performs wraps and brow tinting, but also handles waxing, which some people dread. She knows her clients have often had bad experiences when it comes to hair removal. In response, she’s made it goal to give clients a safe haven where they can feel confident they’ll get high quality results delivered by an experienced professional. She also understands it isn't just women and self-conscious shag carpets who need hair removal, which is why she offers the same services to their male clientele.
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.
The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.
