Comfort is key at Waxing Mania, which is why the certified and licensed aestheticians only slather skin with organic hard wax during hair-removal services. This method is said to leave less residue than soft wax and is reportedly much less painful than duct tape. The techs also put clients at ease by maintaining a high level of cleanliness—including a strict no double-dipping policy—and keeping most appointment times under 30 minutes. All sessions are held behind closed doors in private treatment rooms, where soothing music and neutral décor create a peaceful ambiance.
Trained in advanced precision cutting and coloring at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Zahra Negin has spent more than two decades as a stylist, including managing a top salon in Los Angeles. However, in addition to this experience, an equally important credential is her own hair?a mane of dynamic, natural-looking blond. At her eponymous salon, she specializes in color and cuts for blonds, although she and her team can also style hair of other hues with chic cuts, custom highlights, and keratin-straightening treatments. The team also customizes hair to clients' lifestyles, aesthetics, and collections of tiny hats by offering comprehensive consultations, before styling, shampooing, and conditioning hair with products by brands such as K?rastase and Moroccanoil. For an additional customer-friendly touch, the salon offers complimentary extras, such as shampoos with neck massages.

Ruby Beauty Center lends Eastern flair to salon and spa services that beautify hands, feet, hair, and skin. Henna imbues manes with rich auburn tones ($25+) or, during mendhi sessions, dapples hands with intricate designs of flowers, leaves, and bar-exam answers ($7+ per hand). Staffers daub away unwelcome whiskers from underarms with powerful wax ($7) or gently twist free visage vines with threading ($20 for full face). A thermo herb facial ($55) undoes the effects of tense muscles and gorgon-staring contests by evacuating pores with warmth and salving skin with botanical ingredients.
Black, white, and gray tiles zigzag behind the shampoo station at Nuvo Salon—they speak to the color scheme of the rest of the interior, from a gray floor and a black ceiling to the glass shelf-flecked white walls.

Stylists commit themselves to updating their skills in order to stay at the forefront of current trends. Along with free consultations, the team presents products from Moroccanoil and Aveda, a fully stocked refreshment bar, and free WiFi—which stands for wireless fishing, aka, achieving the impossible.
From haircuts to henna tattoos, the stylists at Hair Images have been revamping their clients' images since 1994. Aestheticians cater to clients with a full range of waxing services for all bodily areas, including underarms, brows, bikinis, and legs. They also specialize in threading, an ancient form of hair removal that uses a 100% cotton thread to lift hair directly from the follicle, resulting in clean, sharp brows. Along with threading, they render facials and bridal makeup for that one special day for a wife-to-be or for every day if you're a bridal-catalog model. The Hair Images salon has a clean, welcoming interior with large green plants and posters on the wall showcasing elegant henna work.
Like a painter poised before her canvas, expert stylist Ayesha Lodhi sees endless possibilities when she stands in front of a head of hair. At Hair Quarters Salon, she straightens curly locks, shapes manes into stylish updos, and elongates strands with natural-looking extensions. She also transforms hair with precise coloring and highlights, both more practical methods of changing your hair?s hue than coating it in ketchup. Beyond her myriad hairdressing services, Ayesha refines brows with threading and removes unwanted hair via waxing.
