Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread’s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
From styling celebrity hair to revitalizing complexions with relaxing facials, the team at Willo Aveda, an Aveda concept salon, aims to fill local mirrors with visions of beauty. Stylists of five different experience levels wash and rinse hair before breathing new life into languishing strands with a tailored cut and blow-dry. Alternatively, hair artisans can deploy Aveda's 97%?99% naturally derived formulas to refresh hair with a single-process color or nourish locks with conditioning plant oils that leave hair shinier than a freshly licked ring pop. The stylists at Willo Aveda also stay engaged with their clients through an active blog that celebrates lauded hair happenings. Most recently, the business collaborated with other Aveda salons to help set a Guinness World Record for the most money raised for charity in 24 hours through haircuts alone.
The experienced staff at Salon Jolie works toward beauty goals with permanent makeup, skincare products, and hair-styling services. Debi Walker, a licensed aesthetician certified in medical skin treatments, draws on more than 30 years in the beauty industry to artfully fill brows and line eyes and lips with permanent makeup. During the process, she uses prepackaged, sterilized needles and a Nouveau Contour Intelligent machine powered by an Intel microprocessor chip, which varies application speed and depth.

The experienced aestheticians at Skin 24 Seven cultivate clear and healthy complexions with advanced aesthetic services customized to specific skin types and conditions. In their ambitious quest to set skin aglow, the team looks for inspiration across the globe. Their worldly, inclusive approach has led them to adopt technologies such as cellulite-banishing Endermologie and the rejuvenating iron-cream mask—an Italian facial that literally ensconces skin in a mask of ultrafine iron particles before a magnet draws dirt away from skin. The team also hand-selects skincare lines to ensure shelves bear only organic and eco-friendly products. These products refresh the countenances of women and men alike, with the latter indulging in masculine facials and specialized waxes to remove back hairs posing as lumberjack flannels.
