The beauticians at Silk & Stone connect East and West with a repertoire of Middle Eastern–inspired spa services, products, and workshops that beautify and illuminate members of each culture. Silk & Stone’s resident henna artist develops a lengthy list of retail products, from botanical-based haircare blended with Pakistani, Persian, and Indian recipes to aromatherapy oils. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians perform services including an Ayurvedic facial with complimentary footbath or threading, which allows a technician to accurately pluck facial, hand, and finger hairs from any skin type with imported antibacterial cotton thread. The cultural tradition of henna is brought into sharp focus as artists use the powder to naturally dye the hair, create intricate designs on brides for their wedding day, or teach students tips and tricks for applying the dye to hands, feet, or their invisible friend’s forearm.
Anita Martinez at Dubunnes Salon & Spa uses advanced technology to improve skin health and aesthetics. For instance, she might operate the Dermaglow II machine, which performs thorough microdermabrasion in a highly hygienic manner—a HEPA filtration system filters away particles. The aesthetician also lets her clients shine with by waxing away unwanted hair and by whitening teeth.
Even though it's a small change, shaping your eyebrows can alter your appearance instantly. That's why the threading artists at Unique Arch Salon use their years of experience to craft subtle arches that transform and complement faces. They accomplish this without the use of hot wax or forcing clients to go undercover as futuristic super-villains. Instead, they rely upon a single strand of cotton, which they loop around unwanted hairs to remove precise lines of hair at a time. This gives them more control as they define brow arches, or safely remove hair from upper lips, side burns, and chins. Once the staff has created a new look with sculpted brows and fuzz-free faces, they can further makeovers with a range of hair services or their gold herbal facial.
The Nines Salon's attentive technicians coax unwanted hairs from both men's and women's follicles using gentle Cirepil depilatory wax. A la carte waxing services appease sensitive skin with gentle Cirepil wax known to smooth the face, legs, arms, and vain cats for up to four to six weeks. A collection of one or three Brazilian waxes brush nether regions with a low-temperature wax before sterile instruments and rumor mills distance hairs from their roots.
Sajal Hubbs brings the ancient art of threading to Bollywood Eyebrow Threading. With quick twists of a cotton fiber, she?s able to shape brows into elegant arches with less irritation than waxing. Sajal also readies brides-to-be with makeup applications, and paints henna onto skin for elaborate body art that lasts up to two weeks.
With a team of image experts on hand, including a medical doctor and a highly talented laser technician, the Picasso staff fashions faces and sculpts skin into individual aesthetic masterpieces. Like a champion gamer at an arcade, the certified skin-sage will aim a precision laser at stubbly scoundrels, zapping them until they gradually fade out of existence or more quarters are required. Most individuals need an average of three to five sessions to achieve an ideal level of bristle banishment, and patients are encouraged to work with the laser technician to determine the number that's right for them.
