The aestheticians at Divine Threading Studio treat clients to services as modern as Dermalogica facials and as traditional as henna tattoos. The salon specializes in depilation treatments, which remove hair using either the familiar heated-wax method or the ancient Eastern threading technique that's considered more appealing to people with sensitive skin. The aestheticians also showcase their precise handiwork by applying intricately designed henna tattoos, which weave their way up the hands and arms of brides-to-be or clients who want to test-drive a tattoo design for a few weeks. For a finishing touch, clients can ask for an ear or nose piercing, face accessories as stylish as Mr. Potato Head's during Fashion Week.
When it comes to managing body hair, the specialists at Aria Threading Salon & Spa know exactly what to do. Around eyes, they use thread to shape and define brows or enhance peepers with glamorous eyelash extensions. To lessen hirsute appearances, they apply bleach to fuzzy patches and waxes away tufts from bikini lines with a chocolate wax or a combination of honey, lemon, and sugar. As for skin, the salon and spa offers nourishing facials and microdermabrasion to unclog pores and whisk away dead skin.

According to a feature that OC Weekly writer Michelle Woo penned in praise of Beyond Beauty Lashes, a visit to one of their six private treatment rooms can yield big results. That's because the salon's extensionists meticulously elongate eyelashes using synthetic extensions, with the option to upgrade to silk or mink options harvested humanely from live animals, just like the cookies harvested from cookie monsters. Clients can choose from various lengths, thicknesses, and colors to achieve their desired look. The extensions typically last 60?100 days, shedding gradually with natural lashes.
