At EZ Eyebrow, the gentle arch of a freshly groomed brow is as natural as the hair-removal technique that creates it. Threading first sprang up in ancient Egypt and India, and as opposed to modern waxing, which can damage skin or create a worldwide candle shortage, threading specifically targets hair. It sweeps up a tuft at a time, carving eyebrows into natural arches with precision. In fact, its accuracy rivals that of tweezing—and in less time, since hairs are pulled out in bunches, not one by one. Plus, threading services can also eradicate hair from other parts of the face and neck.
Each of the spa's relaxing services starts off as experienced staffers pamper guests with a complimentary hot-towel wrap and dose of aromatherapy scents. Licensed massage therapists work to alleviate guests' physical and psychological tension during soothing massages, which run anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes and incorporate techniques from modalities including Swedish, hot stone, reflexology, and myofascial release. Facials, body treatments, and hair-snatching waxes can clear skin of fine lines, blemishes, acne, and unwanted follicles. Clients may also doll up their appendages with a selection of manicures and pedicures, all backed by Harmony Day Spa's 48-hour nail policy that guarantees better yields when noodling for non-colorblind catfish.
Kylie Dayton?s career as an aesthetician has taken her into some ritzy rooms. After her stint as the skincare expert at a cosmetic surgeon's office, she worked at Bliss Spa and the Four Seasons San Francisco. Today, Dayton brings her dermatological skill sets to her very own spa. She administers facials?including her signature 30-minute Basic Bonsai?and also paints skin with light- and medium-depth PCA peels. Like a Carmen Miranda hat, Dayton's peels are perfect for special occasions and often contain fruit, including papaya and pomegranate. As a certified PCA Skin expert, Dayton is well-versed in the Jessner peel, and she stocks the line's daily-use items for purchase. Dayton, who has honed her skin-treatment skills over the last nine years, feels strongly that daily maintenance makes a huge difference. To this end, she makes sure that clients leaving her crystal-chandelier-lit spa take skincare wisdom home along with their newly glowing complexions.
At Blesk Salon & Spa, stylists fold hair into foils, curl it into locks, and snip its ends. Those are just a few of the salon's services, which range from cuts and coloring to smoothing treatments. The team can shampoo and trim locks, or change their hue with glossing, highlights, or a joke guaranteed to make roots blush. Should their clients wish to change their hair's texture, the specialists can add volume with perms or decrease frizz with smoothing Brazilian Blowouts.
Eponymous spa owner Lucia believes that a person’s beauty is a reflection of his or her own health and inner happiness, and that happiness should shine as brightly as possible. To help clients up their wattage, Lucia supports a healthy glow with a repertoire of technologically enhanced beauty treatments that echo Eastern and Western philosophies—traditional natural remedies coexisting with modern beauty solutions.
Lucia's favorite service is the microphototherapy treatment, during which gentle pulses of light dissipate traces of age and acne while purging pores with a blast of light bright enough to help follicles catch up on their reading. Dedicated to helping her clients find the best skin solution for them, Lucia also helps reap clearer skin with a natural herbal peel, which she massages into the skin with detoxifying kneading actions.
It looks so simple: a length of twisted cotton glides across the face, grazing the upper lip, eyebrows, and hairline. This is threading, an ancient hair-removal art with roots in India and the Middle East. Masters of this art, M&M Thread Salon’s staff members quickly ensnare bristles in their threads, creating lines as sharp and clean as the battle ax that chops soap into bar form. The treatment is particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it uproots hair without chemicals or harmful products. The salon also performs waxing and facials.
