Though threading has been among Asia’s most popular depilation methods for thousands of years, it only recently made its way onto the service menus of Western spas. The ancient practice has shown signs of becoming more of a spa mainstay, however, thanks to an eco-friendly process that also manages to stay on good terms with sensitive skin.
For evidence of threading’s rapidly expanding popularity, one need not look further than Brow Shapes' Eastern-inspired treatment menu. When not sculpting brows into precise arches, the spa’s artists rely on their attention to detail to draw henna tattoos that depict flowery swirls, geometric patterns, or extremely detailed public-transit maps. The spa also features a variety of facial massages, each of which can be customized to relieve pain, aid in relaxation, and improve skin tone.
The technicians at Thread & Sugar embrace a natural approach to beauty, whether they are practicing ancient Eastern hair-removal methods or hand-mixing organic facial ingredients right before the client's eyes. An organic salon located in the Central Valley, they use nail polishes free of DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene, and organic, herbal hair color products that are non-toxic. Even the cleaning products they use are eco-friendly and the space is equipped with an onsite purifier that keeps dust, allergens, and debris from invading the air.

Eyebrows serve many useful functions, from helping people express themselves to catching dripping hair gel before it can permanently adhere people's eyeballs to their lids. Properly maintaining the eyebrows—which help define and accentuate facial features—is an essential part of the beautification process. That's where Brow Beauty - formally known as I Bar - comes in. With intertwining strands of cotton thread, stylists shape overgrown brows without causing unnecessary skin trauma. Staffers can also extend this ancient practice to such facial areas as the chin, forehead, and neck.
Reflections owner Afrouz has been practicing the Middle Eastern hair removal technique known as threading since she was a little girl in Iran. During threading sessions, an aesthetician uses a strand of cotton to twist and pull out individual hairs by the root. Afrouz also completed a formal two-year course on the technique and an 8-month course devoted to eyebrow arching. In addition to threading, Reflections also offers permanent make-up application.
