The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.

The beds at all seven Cancun Tan locations boast a variety of amenities to evoke a relaxing day at the beach, with headrests cushioning necks, body fans creating cool breezes, and stereos constantly playing the theme to Baywatch. Clients who prefer UV-free shades can step into the VersaSpa booth, which evenly mists a sunless-tanning formula all over the body and dries quickly to avoid any discomfort.
The initials in AIB Salon stand for "art of Indian beauty," and traditional South Asian beauty techniques are indeed its focus. Stylists can deftly use modern techniques such as Japanese hair-straightening or permanent eyelash extensions, but the team specializes in the ancient art of threading—manipulating 100% cotton threads to remove unwanted facial hair with more speed and precision than waxing, shaving, or tweezing. It's also gentle, since the thread lassoes each hair without causing discomfort to the surrounding skin.
Newly de-fuzzed faces can celebrate with facial treatments that incorporate herbs and even gold. Indeed, a taste for glamour permeates AIB Salon: makeup artists revel in creating jaw-dropping wedding looks and, especially, henna designs almost too elaborate to be believed.
The aestheticians and technicians at Skin Rejuvenation Studios gave themselves a lofty goal: enrich lives. As they describe it, today's society is fast paced and stressful, especially since the lightbulb replaced the scented candles that used to illuminate the world. Their goal is to provide an oasis that revolves around clients' wishes, which explains why customization is the primary tenet of the spa's philosophy. Drawing on a cache of organic Kimberly Parry products, the team specializes in facials, reflexology, and body wraps, along with spray tans that mimic the sun's rays.
