At Tutiya Threading, Mojgan—the sole practitioner and owner—draws on 13 years of experience to beautify bodies with ancient threading practices. Mojgan uses 100% cotton thread that is organic, sanitary, and chemical-free to precisely remove hair from a range of areas, including the eyebrows, upper lip, and chin. Unlike tweezing or plucking, threading removes a clean line of hair all at once, which makes it a precise and fast process. Mojgan also offers additional services such as eyebrow tinting, which can add a luscious look to the brows by making them look darker and fuller.
Vidal Sassoon Academy–trained Annie Dobie has tended to oily, dry, sensitive, and acne-riddled skin for more than 20 years. Nestled inside her nook at Sola Suites, her services include chemical peels, ultrasonic microdermabrasion treatments, and nourishing facials, which employ products from PCA and Epicuren to improve clients' complexions. Although facials remain her top service, Annie also offers full body waxing, from shaping eyebrows to defuzzing bikini areas, never double-dipping wax to ensure a clean and smooth session.
The technicians at Sugaring Westlake love to talk about the benefits of removing hair with sugar paste instead of wax. For one thing, sugar paste won't stick to skin--that is, it won't stick to any living skin cells. It does, however, exfoliate the dead ones, leaving skin soft and smooth after clearing away unwanted hair. For another thing, the sugar paste is all-natural, with no harsh chemical ingredients to irritate the skin. Finally, sugar paste, unlike wax and tattoos of oil spills, can be removed with water.
Owner and licensed aesthetician Meadow Star tends to skin with a collection of facials, which include a clinical deep-cleansing facial and an all-organic coconut-papaya pregnancy facial.
