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.

WINK Eyelash's technicians are such pros, you're liable to fall asleep during the 60-90 minute service. While lying down with your eyes closed, the techs apply individual extensions one-by-one using a formaldehyde-free adhesive that never even makes contact with the skin. Once complete, lashes are longer, thicker, and darker, eliminating the need for mascara, and for many clients, any eye makeup or feathered monocles at all. WINK's technicians recommend touch-ups every couple of weeks, which is a good excuse to revisit the modern, clean salon, which is outfitted with heated pink beds and lime-green accent walls.
