Led by Pravina Kumar, a 22-year veteran of the beauty industry, the Threading Lounge staff uses its namesake technique to gently whisk away unwanted hair above the eyes and lip. Trained hands require a single cotton thread to perform the Asian technique, which isolates offending hairs without irritating the skin or accidentally flossing all the teeth. Threading requires no chemicals, sharp tools, or violent motions—clients simply relax into seats of plush, red cushions under the glow of a crystal chandelier. Threaded hair normally returns on the same timetable as waxed strands, and any length of hair may be jettisoned with the procedure, from peach fuzz to a yak’s eyebrows.
