Threading is an age-old beauty technique, yet to this day it remains one of most popular (and least painful) ways to remove hair. At YUVA Threading Salon, trained aestheticians use threads to gently lasso and uproot stray peach fuzz wherever it crops up. This simple and effective method eschews harsh chemicals, as well as lasers that might veer off course and accidentally blow up the sun.
YUVA isn't just a threading salon, though. The beauty spot also offers a range of facials, massages, and nail services, as well as traditional waxing for more hirsute areas. In keeping with its mission to combine Eastern and Western beauty practices, YUVA also offers non-permanent henna tattooing that decorates skin in beautifully intricate designs.
As a 14-year veteran of the beauty industry, owner Tawny Gray of Glam Couture Salon—a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon—bestows her beauty knowledge on her team of dedicated nail techs, aestheticians, and stylists, who also keep skills fresh with continuing education. Positive energy flows through the brightly lit salon and spa as stylists use Paul Mitchell products to reprimand rebellious split ends, frizz, and bangs that got too cozy with eyebrows. Aestheticians leave epidermises silky smooth with body waxing sessions, and nail techs spruce up finger and toe tips with OPI, Venique, and CND Shellac polish that can be applied in solid layers or decorative designs.
Waxing expert Ashly Clinger frees men and women from unwanted stubble in her homey studio, Face & Body Skin Care Retreat.

Her website educates clients with tips such as avoiding caffeine for 12 hours before the appointment or how to write a nice breakup letter to the unwanted body hair. As a licensed aesthetician, Ashly also performed facials, body scrubs, and ear candling.
