A&S Skin Care's cadre of certified aestheticians specializes in alleviating epidermal ailments such as acne, discoloration, sun damage, and fine lines, all through a variety of visage-rejuvenating services. Med-spa treatments, such as microdermabrasion, shower skinscapes in a deluge of microcrystals to slough off the topmost layer of dead cells and reduce the appearance of acne scarring, fine lines, and sun damage. A variety of facials—including classic European, renewing collagen, and mineral-packed seaweed—work to restore and cleanse an array of skin types, including sensitive, oily, and dishwasher-safe.
Sweetness pervades The Sweet Spot Sugaring Boutique & Brow Bar, from its signature sugar paste, which removes hair from sensitive skin, to its bubblegum-pink and ivory walls. The cosmetic team takes a page from the golden age of Hollywood, aiming to transform clients into their most put-together selves via nourishing facials, exfoliating peels, and the eponymous sugaring and waxing services. At beauty parties, glasses filled with effervescent mimosas lubricate tongues that chat away to friendly aestheticians who groom eyebrows into perfect arches or dual handlebar mustaches.
Inside a glass- and aquamarine-accented beauty studio, Nanu Threading attends to all manner of skincare needs with hair removal and facial services. Experienced threading specialists swiftly drag a twisted strand of cotton string across the face to remove unwanted follicles. Clients also come in for soothing spa facials and the salon's henna tattoos—intricate, semi-permanent artwork drawn onto clients' hands or distracted clients' gloves.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
