Aside from wearing boldly lettered sandwich boards, the human body communicates most clearly and efficiently through its feelers and its eyebrows. Today's Groupon gives eyebrows the customization they seek: for $39, you get three eyebrow and lip-threading sessions at Sondarya Health n Spa (a $78 value), valid at their Andover and North Reading locations.
Sondarya Health n Spa’s team of strand slayers, named in CityVoter’s Top Five Best Boston Brow Shapers of 2010, tailors superfluous fuzz with their centuries-old threading techniques. During the bristle-busting procedure, a member of Sondarya’s staff loops a cotton thread around the offending eyebrow (a $16 value) and lip (a $10 value) fringe before pulling it out by the root in a speedy, skillful motion. Unlike waxing or lawn mowing, threading removes hair for two to six weeks without disturbing delicate skin, and it can yield finer, thinner regrowth after several treatments. Hair should be left to grow undisturbed and complimented regularly on its selflessness for at least two to three weeks before each session to ensure an effective threading.
