Plucking your own body hair is one of life's most tedious and futile chores, like cleaning feathers from a wind tunnel or vacuuming the vacuum. Have a professional foil your follicles with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of threading services at M&M Thread Salon in Walnut Creek.
Aesthetician Reena Pandey leads a team of skin saviors in abolishing facial fuzz with nothing more than their nimble clappers and supply of sanitary thread. Threading doesn't stretch or pull the skin like waxing—reducing discomfort, preventing premature wrinkling, and helping to keep chocolate candies safely hidden beneath eyelids. Using a cotton string, a professional threader can artfully arch eyebrows ($11) or remove sideburns ($10), leaving the area smooth enough for fake mutton-chops application. Banish bristles on the chin ($10–$15), upper lip ($8), or forehead ($10), or get a full-face threading for skin as smooth as a dolphin's armpit ($35). Threading is quick, hygienic, and ideal for a mature and sensitive pelt with a penchant for flare-ups.
M&M Thread Salon
It looks so simple: a length of twisted cotton glides across the face, grazing the upper lip, eyebrows, and hairline. This is threading, an ancient hair-removal art with roots in India and the Middle East. Masters of this art, M&M Thread Salon’s staff members quickly ensnare bristles in their threads, creating lines as sharp and clean as the battle ax that chops soap into bar form. The treatment is particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it uproots hair without chemicals or harmful products. The salon also performs waxing and facials.
