Owner Aida and the trained staff of The Thread Bar espouse an ancient hair-removal technique: an expert twists and rolls a pure cotton thread across the client's skin, entwining a number of strands before plucking them out. Not only does this create minimal discomfort while removing hairs—especially when compared to using wax or aggressively tweezing—but the greatly enhanced sense of control allows the technician to shape eyebrows and quickly de-fuzz lips with ease. Their methods have garnered a loyal client base along with more than a few celebrity faces.
While its methods are time-tested, the atmosphere at The Thread Bar is decidedly modern. The beauty spot encourages patrons to savor its social environment before and after their appointments. Surrounded by pink and black walls, the intimate space features several service stations as well as a bar-like area where guests can chat or log onto the complimentary Wi-Fi.
All it takes is sugar, water, and lemon to sweep away unwanted hair at GLAM DOLL. This 100% natural technique, known as body sugaring, unseats hair at the follicle level and leaves skin soft and smooth, unlike irritating depilatory creams or half-chewed bubblegum. The salon sugars a wide range of body areas, including the face, legs, and bikini area. Men can even indulge in a boyzilian, the male-equivalent of the popular women's brazilian.
A massive poster of Marilyn Monroe adorns the wall at Beba Beauty, hanging above the spare but intimate lobby like an homage to aesthetics. While the day spa can’t guarantee that its clients will look like Marilyn – even after a slew of the rejuvenating services held inside –the customer may certainly feel that radiant, thanks to a wide-ranging menu that includes facials, waxing and body treatments. For those looking for the ultimate in revitalization, though, consider the Day of Beauty: a package of treatments that includes a hydrating facial, hand and foot treatment, lash extensions, an eyebrow makeover and even a champagne lunch, all for a discount.
Juan Juan's talented stylists are dedicated to providing a first-rate, personalized experience for each client, crafting frazzled follicles into chic, modern looks with a soft, individualized focus. Let them shower your head with a new hue during a single-process color ($65+), or doctor it up with a selection of instant hair treatments ($35–$45), such as oleo fusion, which protects very dry hair from brushfires, and concentre vita-ciment, a life-binding mortar that quickly revives weak, unshiny hair. Fresh lashes can be added to eyelid awnings ($40+), while waxing treatments employ high-quality wax, essential oils, and soothing ingredients to subtract the equivalent from bikini lines ($35), full legs ($55), and chins or cheeks ($20). In addition to tending follicular foliage, Juan Juan addresses nervous dermises with equal flair and care—a customized signature express conditioning facial at the Brentwood location hydrates and brightens expression machines during 30 to 40 minutes of blissful frontispiece refurbishment.
