Hair removal can be a painful process—skin is left raw from harsh waxes and brows can be left almost bare after over-plucking. But at Paris Studio, clients can rest assured that a perfect arch won't come at the expense of their skin. An ancient Eastern depilation technique, threading offers tight control over target areas, eschews the use of chemicals, and won't stretch or peel the skin the way waxing does. Using a pure cotton string, the technicians loop around numerous hairs at once to quickly sweep unwanted strands before they have a chance to cry out and warn the others. Besides streamlining bulky brows, the technique can also be used to smooth larger areas including the upper lips, sideburns, and hairline.
Mazzy began as a brow bar but widened its scope?and its staff?so that it now operates as a chic full-service salon where stylists tend to a variety of clients' beauty needs. The team includes a threading specialist and two professional hairstylists, both of whom help clients enhance their individual look. Further style upgrades come courtesy of makeup artists who use MAC cosmetics to draw attention to the face?s most flattering features and away from their third ear. Customers can complete make-overs by perusing an inventory of fashionable jewelry that can accessorize a new cut or fresh highlights.
The stylists at Salon Vie Jehe—overseen by owner Rezi Zare, an internationally trained master stylist—draw upon their up-to-date schooling to design hairdos that mirror each client's unique image.

From there, they bring the style to life with the help of Privé organic haircare products, scissors, and skeins of yarn. Inside the modern-minimalist salon, where angled ceilings apex above dangling globe lamps and chic furnishings, the staff also performs coloring and straightening treatments, makeup applications, and nail services.
