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.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, Progressive Image Hair Art proudly stocks and implements an array of plant-based Aveda products. Specializing in cutting and styling long, short, and curly hair, the salon calls upon the beautifying powers of its signature products during a variety of customized treatments, from deep-conditioner applications to styling sessions for both men and women. Delving deeper into the realm of beauty, the spa also possesses expertise in makeup as well.
The benevolent body bufferers at The White Orchid Salon & Spa are expertly trained to transform skin owners into an indestructible engine powered solely by bliss. First, hand over your fore-pores to the licensed aesthetician, who will administer a thorough European facial (starting at $80). The relaxing procedure, carefully tailored to your skin type, will clean and exfoliate the skin, leaving it bright, healthy, and free of expired mothballs. The relaxation train forges forward with a calming, tension-nullifying one-hour Swedish massage ($60). Using light to medium pressure, the certified therapist will knead achy muscles throughout the corpus using long, slow strokes, thereby restoring your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
Nava's Hair Studio's Facebook page reads like a beauty magazine, offering tips on such things as how to prevent hair from frizzing in the summer (keep hair properly hydrated so it won't absorb moisture in the air and swell) and how to build volume at the crown while keeping the rest of the hair sleek (apply mousse roots to ends, put hair in a ponytail on the top of your head, release when dry). The page is so informative because Nava's head stylist and owner, Ofelia, has been working in the industry for more than 20 years. Plus, she constantly travels the country seeking advanced knowledge on such things as how to cut hair based on facial structure and how to hide a third eye with dramatic bangs.
At her studio, Ofelia and her team of stylists keep locks looking spiffy with face-flattering cuts, Brazilian blowouts, and highlights and lowlights. They also beautify clients with waxing services and lash and brow tints.
Julie Vang works alongside the other talented staff members at Friends for Hair Beauty Salon, where her specialties include pampering mani-pedis and waxing services. The salon—which caters to men and women—offers a full range of services, from custom cut and color services to advanced treatments like Keratin smoothing and hair-enhancements such as wigs, extensions, and removable moustaches. But aside from making them look better on the outside, the business also strives to make clients feel better inside. To that end, they frequently support charitable organizations such as "Locks of Love" and collect hair clippings and nylons for use in oil spill cleanup.
