Though it may seem like a new trend, eyebrow threading has been around for centuries. Originally practiced in India and the Middle East, the brow-shaping method swaps waxes and chemicals for cotton strings that, when intertwined, pulled taut, and stretched over brows, cleanly remove unwanted hair. It's also the go-to beauty method at Selah Threading & Salon. Here, clients rest under the steady hands of eyebrow threading experts who whisk away stray hairs without tweezers, lasers, or tiny rakes.
Eyebrow threading isn't the only service at the salon, either. Clients can also tint their lashes and brows, hydrate and rejuvenate their skin with herbal facials, and decorate their limbs with temporary henna tattoos.
Inside Beauty Express Shop, the pros take their time to ensure each client is fully pampered. Some services, including threading, require a steady hand, whereas others, such as waxing, require strong enough arm muscles to rip hair out of its nesting holes. Specialists also alleviate acne, excess oil, and other dermal issues during soothing facials and cover blank canvases with colorful makeup for special events such as weddings or birthday parties.
The original spas were relaxing places for European nobility. The Spa at West Park Court seeks to recapture that luxury with a range of European treatments in gently lit rooms full of flowers and art. Those treatments incorporate European products, including some from Jansseen Cosmetics, a brand that combines aesthetics with advanced pharmaceutical research to beautify skin. There are hard and soft waxes for different kinds of waxing, and a range of makeup, all of which help patrons work towards beauty goals while relaxing like Old World royalty.
For the electrologists and aestheticians at Elite Electrolysis, beauty starts with smooth, radiant skin. To achieve both, the team combines electrolysis and microdermabrasion treatments to alternately banish unwanted hair and render skin with the youthful radiance it hasn't seen since the day it left the cabbage patch. Rather than short-term solutions such as threading and waxing, electrolysis treatments vanquish all types of hair from all types of skin, virtually guaranteeing permanent removal with multiple visits. Microdermabrasion takes care of brown spots, wrinkles, and acne by sloughing off dead skin cells with ultra-fine crystals.
Because of the way hair grows, it takes more than one laser session to banish it from the body for good. It's with the knowledge of this process in mind that the crew at Dermani Medspa offers laser hair removal treatments both a la carte and as part of monthly membership programs. Certified aestheticians take aim at unwanted fuzz on nearly any part of the body, including men?s beards and hobbits? toes, using the Lumenis LighSheer Duet. They take a similar membership-style approach to beauty treatments such as microdermabrasions and chemical peels, as these services also tend to yield more dramatic effects over the course of multiple treatments. All of these services take place in a clean, modernly designed clinic painted in soothing earth tones.
In 2003, beauty expert Reema Khan noticed just how many patrons of her Chicago salon sought expert brow-shaping services. Reema decided to open up Shapes Brow Bar, and since its inception, it has now expanded into a franchise with more than 75 locations nationwide. In addition to brow services, clients can opt for makeup applications, facial treatments, and body waxing services.
