If a jack of all trades is a master of none, then the aestheticians at Eyebrow Hub can safely call themselves masters of the art of eyebrow threading. They rid hirsute foreheads of unwanted stragglers, leaving behind gorgeously arched brows, but none of the redness, swelling, or amorous bees left by waxing. Despite the name, the threadsters also apply their hair-removal services to other areas, including upper lips, chins, and legs. Guests with a mind to supplement their threading, can go in for henna tattoos, eyelash extensions, and microdermabrasion.
At EZ Eyebrow, the gentle arch of a freshly groomed brow is as natural as the hair-removal technique that creates it. Threading first sprang up in ancient Egypt and India, and as opposed to modern waxing, which can damage skin or create a worldwide candle shortage, threading specifically targets hair. It sweeps up a tuft at a time, carving eyebrows into natural arches with precision. In fact, its accuracy rivals that of tweezing—and in less time, since hairs are pulled out in bunches, not one by one. Plus, threading services can also eradicate hair from other parts of the face and neck.
Felecia Rincon knows that sugar can do a lot more than sweeten her coffee and stand in for snow on a ski slope. At Bare Sugaring Studio, she uses it to remove unwanted hair, practicing a spa treatment that goes back centuries. Applied opposite the direction of hair growth, her sugar-based paste sinks deep within the follicle, deeper than wax, to grip the hair at its root. When Felecia removes the paste, she takes with it the short, fine hairs that other epilation techniques miss, and even removes dead skin, leaving the legs, chests, chin, or any other body area, smooth and sleek.

Throughout the process, clients lean back in comfortable chairs as the staff gently escorts unwanted stubble from the premises.
