What You'll Get
Poorly groomed eyebrows mar otherwise impressive mugs, turning friendly glances into blank stares and ruining a fish face honed in order to infiltrate Poseidon's entourage. Clear up impressive appearances with today's Groupon to I Bar. This Groupon is only valid at I Bar's Emeryville location. Choose between the following options:
- For $24, you get three eyebrow threadings (a $48 value).
- For $60, you get three full-face threadings, including eyebrows (a $120 value).
I Bar's skilled brow artists slough away errant strands and sculpt forehead fringe into arching eye frames using thread in lieu of harsh waxes. Beautifiers ensnare wayward bristles between clean cotton strands and swiftly tug out tufts with an ancient method of hair removal that enables precise shaping and protects sensitive skin like a black-belt dermatologist. Pangs less pronounced than those associated with waxing or plucking accompany the brow or full-face treatment, and the resulting fine re-growth keeps epidermises smooth longer than conventional fuzz-fighting techniques. Lavender hues permeate I Bar's pampering haven, which overflows with potted orchids and plush couches. Ebony chairs buoy patrons at styling stations as beauty buffs unveil pristine skin and eyebrows shaped like favorite city skylines.

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.
