hough it was developed more than 1,000 years ago in India, threading has found a modern niche due to its eco-friendly reputation and gentle treatment of sensitive skin. Practicing this method for the last 24 years, the trained threaders at Eyebrow MakeOver use a three-step technique to ensure brows flatter each client’s face shape and default emotion. Technicians start by outlining a desired shape for patron approval, then use a thin cotton thread to capture stray hairs at the root, yielding results that are more precise than with waxing and less likely to produce ingrown hairs. Technicians then train their clients in the use of eyebrow products, so brows continue to look full and even between threadings.
As its name suggests, AH Laser Aesthetics specializes in remodeling bodies with high-energy beams of light.

No matter the look you're going for, Mark William Salon & DaySpa's staff can help you achieve it. Here, the stylists cut long layers and asymmetrical bobs, finishing them off with all-over color or sun-kissed highlights. They also affix natural-looking extensions to existing hair to create length and volume without gluing the family cat to your head.
The experts don't stop with hair, either. They fill their spa menu with hydrating facials, hot-stone massages, colorful mani-pedis, and makeup applications for a special event or night out on the town.
Boda Salon's stylists breathe new life into hair by deftly cutting, coloring, and texturizing to suit their clients' unique desires. After sudsing up hair with All-Nutrient shampoos and conditioners—composed of renewable, certified-organic ingredients—they assess the ideal look for their subject's face shape and fashion sense before resculpting with precise scissor snips, laying trails of dimension-boosting highlights, or leveling out unruly locks with keratin proteins. Meanwhile, four types of facials, microdermabrasion, and waxing services lend a salon-fresh look to the rest of the body faster than taking a tiny curling iron to each arm hair.
The walls are watching you––or so it would seem. Framed photos of eyes laden with long, voluminous lashes can be seen throughout each Xtina’s Lash Xtensions' salon.
