Wakeup Beauty Salon & Spa’s licensed cosmetologist, Farzana Karimali, has been smoothing bodies with waxing and threading treatments for more than 10 years.

More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
Green, leafy plants and a cross-legged Buddha statue populate the tranquil foyer of PerSauna, an urban retreat that promotes relaxation and wellness exclusively through infrared-sauna sessions. The space has two types of saunas, both housed in private suites outfitted with flat screens and sound systems. The first type of sauna, made of cedar wood, has antibacterial and antifungal powers, but also bears the aromatic scent of the wood. Those sensitive to odors may prefer the hypoallergenic basswood saunas.
Once bodies are inside the rustic saunas, far-infrared energy begins elevating internal temperatures and promoting a slew of potential benefits. In the comfortable heat, muscles relax and minds sharpen as a healthy sweat pulls toxins, sodium, alcohol, and boy-band lyrics from the body. After typical 40-minute sessions, clients may rehydrate with a glass of fruit-flavored water.
