Led by Pravina Kumar, a 22-year veteran of the beauty industry, the Threading Lounge staff uses its namesake technique to gently whisk away unwanted hair above the eyes and lip. Trained hands require a single cotton thread to perform the Asian technique, which isolates offending hairs without irritating the skin or accidentally flossing all the teeth. Threading requires no chemicals, sharp tools, or violent motions—clients simply relax into seats of plush, red cushions under the glow of a crystal chandelier. Threaded hair normally returns on the same timetable as waxed strands, and any length of hair may be jettisoned with the procedure, from peach fuzz to a yak's eyebrows.
The staff at Q Laser Center leads clients on a laser-driven journey toward smoother, less visibly vascular, or tattoo-free skin. The Center prides itself on using safe, FDA-approved, and effective laser treatments, carried out in a clean and comfortable environment, free of stressors such as onrushing asteroids. In addition to laser treatments, the Center's team also helps to rejuvenate the skin with chemical peels, cosmetic injections, and other aesthetic services.
Owner Nani Le and the stylists at Bliss Salon & Barbering mold manes into fashionable ’dos with an array of services and hair products from Milkshake. Like a misguided safecracker, the women's haircut package bombards locks with scissors, deep conditioner, and gusts of the blow dryer. Meanwhile, the highlight package follows plumage styling by completely or partially accenting tresses with radiant strands. During an eye-styling package, ocular technicians frame eyes with streamlined brows and help tone eyelid muscles with extensions.
As its name implies, Accurate Electrolysis aims for precision in each hair-removal treatment it performs—the team of electrologists draws from three modalities to ensure the best possible results for each client. The process begins by inserting a fine metal probe into individual hair follicles, at which point an epilator releases a mild electrical current into the follicle. Depending on hair and skin type, the electrologist can choose to use a direct current, which destroys the hair chemically, a high-frequency current, which destroys the hair with heat, or a blend of both.
Treatments can be performed most anywhere on the body and are designed to work on all hair and skin types; sessions occur more frequently at the beginning of the process and taper off over time. Though hair is destroyed during each treatment, denser, coarser hair generally requires multiple sessions to completely remove.
With interiors that are white, black, and lit by a crystal chandelier, Salon Trendy 808 lives up to its name even before you know how proficient the stylists are at creating modern 'dos. But that's not the only reason to stop by this local beauty house. Sophisticated skincare treatments, such as peels and aromatherapy facials, help keep skin clear or slow down the signs of aging until they forgot why they showed up in the first place. One area the salon boasts as particularly unique is its holistic care practices such as cupping, an ancient practice that promotes good health. Beyond that, hair treatments are the center's main claim to fame, as are nail care and makeup artistry.
