The master aestheticians at Lashes to Waxes, LLC have a complicated relationship with hair. They seem to be on good terms with eyelashes, which they regularly lengthen and enhance with extensions. Hair across the body doesn’t fare as well at their salon, where they swiftly clear bushy patches with strips of wax.
Aside from the services alluded to in its name, Lashes to Waxes aims to keep women “feeling pretty and feminine in today’s society” with exfoliating facials, body wraps, masks, and salt scrubs. A master aesthetician with more than 10 years of experience meticulously grooms fingers and toes, painting nails with splashes of color or portraits of one’s extended family.
Inside this relaxing oasis, aestheticians and massage therapists infuse their treatments with mineral-rich elements of the Dead Sea. Its mud and salts exfoliate the skin during hammam-style scrubs, which also use olive-oil soaps to cleanse and moisturize. The mud is swept over faces during middle eastern facials, where it works to shrink pores and remove impurities. In addition to these nourishing treatments, the staff beautifies patrons with haircuts, Shellac manicures, and henna tattoos.

The pair's nimble fingers and keen scissors turn dull locks into alluring 'dos, and products by Arrojo, Bumble and bumble, and Davines help them curl, straighten, and color hair with vibrant highlights and washes of all-over color.

Throughout the other rooms, aestheticians beautify skin with facials, body wraps, and body scrubs. The staff also clear-cuts unruly stubble with waxing services, ideal for removing unwanted leg hair or stripping away stubborn third eyebrows.
