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 $16, you get six eyebrow-threading sessions at Thread, located in heart of the East Village (a $48 value). This Groupon is valid only at Thread’s 3rd Avenue location, situated between 9th and 10th streets.
Masters of eye-arch artistry, the Thread staff will ensure all eyebrow-threading sessions proceed in comfort, cleanliness, and style. A friendly threader will carefully and meticulously pluck unruly brow bristles at the root using a thin string, resulting in a neat and quick trim of bushy fore-hedges ($8 value each). Unlike other harsh hair-removal techniques, threading is ideal for those with sensitive people peels, as it does not irritate the surrounding skin, instead focusing on individual hairs for precise face framing in just 5–10 minutes. While waxing requires that hair grow to a certain length for depilation, hair just needs to grow above the skin's surface to be threaded. Results can last anywhere from two to eight weeks, at which point hair will begin to grow back finer, less sparse, and less likely to elope with a set of persuasive tweezers.
Thread's clean, modern décor exudes the aura of a high-end spa, with crisp white walls, red accents, and sleek silver seating that appeases revered patrons in waiting. Since no appointments are necessary and multiple Groupons may be purchased as gifts, today’s deal affords a superb chance to organize a spontaneous girls’ day out, or quickly get into shape for an unplanned furrow throw-down.
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.
