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.

Located in Gramercy, Besu always puts the customer first, proudly offering special services such as off-hour appointments and mini facials, massages, waxing and paraffin treatments while you wait.
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.
With six locations peppering Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, Precise Brows’ fleet of trained waxers keeps faces and bodies looking polished. Waxing banishes unwanted fur from arms, legs, stomachs, and bikini areas, and hairstylists shear off split ends from scalps and blow-dry remaining lengths into sleek shape. Faces fearful of wax can forgo the sticky stuff in favor of threading services available from the neck up. Taking a break from bristle, the staff can also enhance winks with eyelash extensions or etch beautiful black or herbal henna onto skin to ready it for a special occasion or camouflage regretful tattoos of Jeopardy host Alex Trebek.
The board-certified physician, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses at Aura Skin Spa help to halt the sands of time with FDA-approved technologies and aesthetic services.

A range of skin services including microdermabrasion allow the crew to exfoliate and moisturize fa?ades until they glow more than a radioactive lightning bug.
Clad in a black shirt and necktie, master stylist Joseph Nasser works with a studious look on his face that resembles that of a master chess player who is thinking five moves ahead. His shirt stands out against the whitewashed background of his Upper West Side hair palace, Blondi's Hair Salon. A Lebanon native, Joseph rose to styling distinction in New York by working as a John Sahag sculptor cutter. Now, as owner of his own salon, the grandmaster colorist surrounds himself with a skilled team of imaginative stylists, all armed to the bangs with an array of upscale Aveda products that stare out from sleek, backlit shelves.
