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.

Robin Ford tends to hands and feet at Expression Salon alongside a staff of other nail technicians and hairstylists. While she works, staff members dole out a wealth of beauty treatments—from haircuts and color services to facials, waxing, spray tans, and gel manicures. Stylists use products by Thermafuse, L'Oréal Professionnel, and Kenra. The salon's coral-colored walls and punchy green accents surround visitors, along with free WiFi and our collective unconscious.
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.

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.
