What You'll Get
Without eyebrows, humans could only express surprise by gasping, hastily concealing their deck of Magic the Gathering cards, and claiming that they knew Funyuns were made from corn all along. Celebrate the expressive power of the eyebrow with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get an eyebrow-threading and Brazilian bikini-waxing package at Thread, located in the Financial District (a $48 value). The Groupon is valid for three months and only at Thread’s downtown location.
Masters of both waxing and threading, the Thread staff will ensure your bikini wax and eyebrow threading proceed in comfort, cleanliness, and style. A friendly threader will carefully pluck unruly brow hairs at the root using a thin string, resulting in a neat and quick trim of bushy fore-hedges ($8). You’ll also receive an expert Brazilian bikini wax ($40). Delicate areas beset by uninvited hair can look forward to its orderly departure under the gentle supervision of a Thread technician, unlike Santa’s disastrous retreat from Easter Island. The previously bushy will leave with forenoggins and bikini lines that feel refreshed and tidy.
Thread’s convenient downtown location in the Financial District allows for a lightning-quick pluck and wax during a lunch break. The clean, modern décor exudes the aura of a high-end spa. Black, red, and white walls surround leather chairs atop a polished tile floor, while cushioned benches pad the duffs of patrons in waiting. Today’s Groupon affords a superb chance to organize a girls’ day out, giving you everything you need to prepare your team for a fierce swimsuit jai-alai tournament or furrowing contest.
Citysearch has this video detailing the work of Thread:
New York magazine says: > * Walk-ins recline in one of six leather chairs as a skilled threader works the cotton filament, rapidly removing even the finest hairs by the root. (Eyebrows are fine-tuned by a scissor trim.) Just as fast and inexpensive as waxing, threading leaves skin intact and gorgeously bare. – Sarah Walker
Yelpers give Thread a nearly perfect 4.5 stars, as do Citysearchers: > * This is the spot to go to for perfect Brows! I am very particular when it comes to my eyebrows, but after a coworker of mine recommended the place I decided to check it out. Best recommendation ever! – CristalC, Citysearch

At Thread, aestheticians try to find the most natural way to uncover a client's beauty. They specialize in threading treatments, for which they use only a long piece of cotton thread to shape eyebrows and depilate faces without burning or tugging at skin. And to complement newly groomed faces, they offer a range of services. Aestheticians can polish complexions with facials, add a touch of the East with henna tattoos, or emphasize eyes with eyelash extensions. Outside of the facial area, they focus on waxing treatments. But they eschew traditional waxes in favor of a natural honey wax, which adheres to every hair for clean bikini lines and smooth legs that pair well with a cup of tea.
