If it involves the eyes, Iy Kandii Lash Boutique can do it. The spa’s licensed extension specialists enhance natural lashes with professional adhesives and semipermanent extensions in a range of colors. They custom cut each application to create the desired amount of length and volume—whether clients want a natural look or the ability to sail a boat by blinking. Once extensions are in place, they can wax or thread eyebrows into perfectly symmetrical arches or make eyes pop with professionally applied makeup. Aside from dressing up the eyes, they also dole out cleansing and exfoliating facials and travel to parties and special events across town for in-house services.
Whether they’re polishing toenails or eliminating cellulite with a Beauty Image laser, the staff at Ador Skin Care & Spa focuses on customizing their treatments to your body’s needs. Their services—which also include facials, body scrubs, waxing, and eyebrow tinting—often employ opulent Sothys skincare products, which maintain looks with minimal preservatives instead of liberal amounts of beauty vinegar.
TTI Organics is a destination for aesthetic treatments both dramatic and subtle. Detail-oriented beauties opt for eyelash extensions, or request a wax with optional Swarovski crystals. Crystals make another, more understated appearance?but with big results?during microdermabrasion treatments, which slough away dead skin cells to showcase the naturally dewy complexion that lies beneath. Microcurrent face-lifts tighten tired skin, making clients look so young that servers ask for ID before letting them order dishes topped with white-wine or vodka sauce. For a whole-body change, clients opt for spray tans, inch-shedding body wraps, and ultrasonic cavitation.

Brow sculptors at Threading Diva whisk unwanted whiskers away, sculpting perfect brows without disturbing sensitive skin. Threading, a gentle depilatory method used by ancient Egyptians to remove fuzz from hair-obscured hieroglyphics, shapes eye arches into expressive works of art by rolling twisted thread across brow bristles to pluck out hair by the roots. Whereas fragrances and chemicals associated with other hair-removal methods can irritate sensitive skin, threading removes even the finest facial hair without worry of interacting with sensitizing medications, conditions such as rosacea, or tattoos of sewing needles. In about 10 minutes, professionals transform ragged eye roofs into elegant trellises that enhance eye contact with wordless expression.
