Unique Threading Salon specializes in threading, a hair-removal process that uses cotton thread to pull strands more precisely and with less pain than waxing. The salon's hair-removal experts are also adept at traditional waxing—they use soothing formulas with plant-derived waxes and essential oils—and sugaring. Sugaring uses an all-natural blend of sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove hair, and works well on sensitive areas such as the face, bikini line, and papier-mâché peg legs.
After graduating from beauty school and obtaining her cosmetology license, Cristi Dearasaugh decided to open a place to call her own––Hair Mechanics. Her services include men's, women's, and kids' cuts, as well as perms, coloring, and up-dos. Natural and acrylic nails get primped with artfully applied polishes and unwanted facial hairs are removed with wax rather than a powerful vacuum-cleaner hose.

Arkansas Simply Skin's technicians make handy use of products from SkinCeuticals, a pharmaceutical-grade line of skincare products designed by scientists who are tapped into the dermatological community.
