At thread, aestheticians try to find the most natural way to uncover a client's beauty. They specialize in threading treatments, for which they use only a long piece of cotton thread to shape eyebrows and depilate faces without burning or tugging at skin. And to complement newly groomed faces, they offer a range of services. Aestheticians can polish complexions with facials, add a touch of the East with henna tattoos, or emphasize eyes with eyelash extensions. Outside of the facial area, they focus on waxing treatments. But they eschew traditional waxes in favor of a natural honey wax, which adheres to every hair for clean bikini lines and smooth legs that pair well with a cup of tea.
At Yuva Threading Salon's three NYC locations, the staffs of skilled aestheticians blend Western techniques with centuries-old Eastern traditions. Due to this versatility, the salon has grown to offer more than eyebrow threading, though the technique still remains their hallmark service and garners praise from outlets such as The Early Show on CBS. Their clients can also take advantage of waxing, facials, massages, nail services, and receive intricate henna tattoos.

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.
