For the better part of a decade, Zaynab Alkaabi has removed unwanted facial hair through threading–an ancient practice which involves deftly twisting thread and running it across the face, thus removing targeted hair at the root. Threading, which can be advantageous for patrons with sensitive skin, allows Alkaabi to expertly shape brows and evict hair from the face without the use of harsh chemicals.
Experienced staff and a contemporary atmosphere make this salon and spa the perfect place to prettify pouty pouts. Chic, hairless leather couches in the waiting area offer a comfortable place to drape sleepy bodies, while flat screens entertain those on deck without imposing on personal space. When your name is up, opt for a salon service, such as tress reduction ($35+ for women, $20+ for men) or partial highlights ($65+). Lucky's spa, added in 2009, can still transfer some of its own freshness to your face with a green-apple facial, which employs a light fruit-enzyme peel to brighten and firm skull slipcovers ($60+). Or, match your patch to the spa's exposed brick walls with a Brazilian bikini wax ($50–65). See the website for a full spa menu.

Salon Bellissimo honors the timelessness of true beauty by decorating its spa like an Ancient Roman bath with concrete urns, great columns, and a statue of Hebe, the goddess of beauty. And this reverence for history is fitting, since owner Cecilia Sammons has been in the industry for more than 30 years herself. Today, she and her staff of stylists, nail technicians, and makeup artists transform clients using modern haircare products from L’Oréal and Moroccanoil and nail polish scraped directly off Botticelli's The Birth of Venus.
A manicurist with 14 years of nailcare experience pampers paws at her salon in Plymouth's Old Village.

A vast lineup of pedicures, manicures, and soothing treatments awaits upper and lower appendages, and Robin welcomes appointment setters from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday.
