Perfect Brows NYC doesn’t just remove hair above the eyes; the studio removes it from all over the body using three different methods. Its threading services uproot follicles on the face with a twisted cotton thread. And during waxing services, a thin layer of molten wax covers fuzzy areas and adheres to hairs before pulling them from the root. The third method used, called sugaring, is an organic alternative that removes hair with a natural paste made from sugar, lemon juice, guar gum, and water. This method is proven to provide less breakage and ingrown hairs and to leave clients with skin as smooth as a newborn dolphin. Each method provides a blank canvas for the studio’s other services, which include henna work and facials.
Sharing the stories and wisdom accumulated during 25 years as an aesthetician, Katy Yip, who holds a diploma from the prestigious CIDESCO and is a licensed esthetician and tattoo artist, wields products from brands including Decléor Paris, Elene Paris, blinc, Farah Beauty Specialist, Soskin Paris, and GrandeLash. Tendrils of fragrance unfurl from aroma-infused swiss body massages, and patrons parade past with fresh permanent makeup in precise lines designed not to smudge or aggravate sensitive skin. Assorted facials call upon aromatic masks, pulsating light, and collagen to combat the appearance of wrinkles, allowing newly revitalized patrons to press their faces more appealingly against pet-store windows.

The aestheticians of JJ Eyelashes model their techniques after May Lee, owner and licensed makeup artist with more than 10 years of experience. Inside each of the spas, clients recline on cushioned beds as practitioners set to work applying curled lash extensions to each natural eyelash in a choice of colors, lengths, and thicknesses. In addition to the lashes?which can last for up to six weeks with proper maintenance?aestheticians accentuate features with permanent-makeup treatments that fill in brows, lips, and connect-the-dots freckle drawings with pigment that lasts for anywhere from two to five years.
