What You'll Get
Aside from wearing boldly lettered sandwich boards, the human body communicates most clearly and efficiently through its eyebrows. Today's Groupon gives eyebrows the customization they seek: for $8, you get an eyebrow threading (a $16 value) at I Bar Fresno on North Palm Avenue, in the Fig Garden Village shopping center.
An ancient method of precise and gentle hair removal, threading removes unwelcome follicles with the use of a sterile cotton thread and nimble, candle-stick-jumping technicians. Unlike other brow-shaping methods that may haphazardly remove large hair patches, threading quickly removes one clean line of hair at a time, leading to less irritation. Because the entire hair follicle is uprooted, even the most stubborn hairs generally remain out of sight for up to six weeks, or the same amount of time a groundhog must go into exile after shamefully spotting his shadow.
Founded by beauty specialist Vimaa Patel, the staff at I Bar is expertly trained to whip even the most timid brows into social butterflies that will frame, define, and talk up any visage. A truly balanced individual is one who lives in harmonious synchrony with the eyebrows that can steer his or her gaze and accentuate glasses frames. Reclaim dominion over the wildest of brows and open your eye-shelf to a range of facial expressions, from mild scolding to consternation, intrigue, hunger, and x-ray vision.

Beauty specialist Vimaa Patel opened the original iBar to concentrate on threading, body art, and permanent makeup. Now with four different locations, Vimaa ensures her staff is practiced in the ancient technique of eyebrow threading—gently pruning and shaping brows with cotton strings—by requiring potential team members to have at least two years of experience. The technicians also enhance eyes and brows with permanent-makeup treatments and personalize shoulders, ankles, and calves with temporary body art, such as birds, blossoms, or safe combinations.
iBar's intensive focus on a handful of treatments let the staff master their craft, and customers took notice. Within four years, the beauty haven expanded to four locations, each of which maintains the rigorous quality and boutique ambiance of the original. Additionally, a 26-foot classic Airstream transformed into a chic mobile salon parks at multiple locations in the Peninsula to provide glam on the go.
