The fuzz fighters at Hair Affairs Salon deftly sculpt brows using the ancient, chemical-free method of threading. Rolling twisted cotton strands along each strand of forehead fuzz, the hair whisperers gently harvest unwanted foliage from faces. In about 10 to 15 minutes, above-eye curves flaunt new crisp, feature-flattering definition, retaining a vaulted convexity for weeks to come. Because threading appointments shun plucking, hot wax, and hair-hiding full-face masks, patrons experience minimal discomfort and emerge from Hair Affairs Salon without bumping into banana peels.
