ArchAngels is the specifically tailored brain baby of Rekha, a one-woman powerhouse of eyebrow-threading talent. With 25 years of experience and a self-described obsession with shaping, fixing, and perfecting the all-powerful brow, Rekha is a one-strand stand for eyebrow-threading needs. For arch pilgrims only familiar with waxing and plucking, threading is a technique that originated in ancient India in which brows are shaped using only a cotton thread. Instead of slathering on harsh hair-removal creams loaded with chemicals or hot wax that can burn and abrade your sensitive face skin, threading wicks away hairs one by one for elegant arches that will frame, define, and brighten your whole face. The results last longer than waxing, and you're also less likely to experience bumps, irritation, swelling, or event horizons. Check out Rekha's photo portfolio for images of her craft, and brace your forehead for a pair of symmetrical, elegant guests.

Wrapped into this package are a face, neck, and hand massage.

The peel's potent blend of antioxidants and vitamin A battles age-triggered wear by protecting, nourishing, and repairing pelts.

What’s your favorite part about your job?
My job is so personal. What other field of work can you go in and touch so many lives in a day? Knowing I can literarily make someone's day better by fixing a not-so-good haircut, or giving them the make over of their lives, is amazing. I believe it's one-hundred percent true that when you look good, you feel good—and when you feel good, you do good.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
My salon is painted in a shade of lavender, which helps clients feel calm. All of our decor is classic yet vintage-inspired, and it includes lovely photos of our bridal clients on their wedding days.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We travel on-location to do a bride's hair and makeup on her wedding day.
