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 (a $48 value) at Thread, located in the heart of the East Village. 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.
