In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city?s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location?s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.

The white tulip chairs, sleek charcoal and orange d?cor, and recessed lighting may give Wink Threading Salon a modern feel, but their specialty service is rooted in tradition. Instead of relying on harsh wax, chemicals, or duct tape, the hair removal experts reach for a simple length of antibacterial thread. By twisting the threads together and sweeping them across the skin, the stylists are able to swiftly and precisely uproot stray hairs, creating smooth, sure lines on the brows, upper lip, chin, or forehead. A writer for D Magazine in the feature "The Best Eyebrow Job I've Ever Had" called Wink?s threadong process "less painful?than wax" and "less tedious than tweezing," and even claimed that afterwards she was so pleased that she "could [not] stop looking at [her brows] in the rearview mirror."

Supervised by Dr. Gurpreet Padda, the staff at the Padda Institute beautify bodies with a lengthy list of procedures, including laser hair removal and cleansing facials. A russet-toned lobby with natural stone detailing houses guests before technicians lead them to a private treatment room to discuss procedures and cover pop songs on the rims of crystal goblets. Before leaving, clients can stock up on jane iredale mineral makeup or Padda's signature line of skincare products from the clinic's shelves.
