By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.
Red Threads provides any and all threading service, as well as henna tattoos for those who want to try something exotic for their next outing. Our stylists create the most intricate fine lines to get the most elegant look.
Our threading is done by threading specialists who will shape your eyebrows how YOU want them.
After more than 35 years, the walls at Paperbacks Plus in Mesquite couldn't cope with all the books. So the owners expanded into the city proper, setting up two new shops under the name Lucky Dog Books. Shelf after shelf of volumes greets the eye at each location; alongside the paperbacks and hardbacks sit myriad other forms of media, from used CDs and DVDs to LPs, magazines, and comic books young and old. Chairs dot the landscape at all three bookstores, inviting customers to flop down and flip through the pages of a novel or pretend to read a comic book that conceals a history textbook. In addition to selling its wares, Lucky Dog Books also offers cash or store credit for used items and takes its services on the road with a Books at Home program.
Belly Dance Little Egypt's seasoned hip shakers help students burn calories and boost their confidence through the undulating motions of the ancient Middle Eastern dance form. Inside, vibrant and colorful scarves wrap tightly around hips as a fringe of metal discs jangles with each sashay. Anyone with hips can drop in for a one-hour class or purchase a kit, which may feature up to 12 lessons and accessories such as coin belts, silk veils, and a CD of music for practicing at home or in the grocery line. An alternative to classic workouts or dance classes, belly dancing helps women enjoy "me time" while toning up musculature, getting hearts pumping, and freeing bellybuttons to sing karaoke.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
