What You'll Get
As it turns out, peach fuzz is actually patented by peaches, and these angry fruits have had it up to the stem with the widespread infringement. Return wispy whiskers to their rightful owners with today's Groupon. For $5, you get $12 worth of threading services for the eyebrows, face, or neck at Wink Threading Salon in Oak Lawn. In keeping with Tuesday’s reputation as the “weekend of the weekdays,” if you redeem your Groupon on a Tuesday, you’ll receive an upper-lip threading at no additional charge.
Threading is a gentle yet precise method of hair removal most often used to achieve exact and angular brow shapes, but suitable for the removal of any stray follicle more than 1/16 of an inch long. Unlike other forms of hair removal that tug at or irritate the skin with wax or chemicals, this ancient Indian technique avoids all skin contact, minimizing discomfort and preventing cumulative mug-skin misshaping. Since the process steers clear of skin and the only tool used during the procedure is an antibacterial string, threading is an exceedingly hygienic approach to weeding wily squiggles from your countenance. Threading services at Wink start at $8, and the results usually last a couple of weeks.
From Wink's modern, tranquil sanctuary, one of the salon's highly skilled strand sorcerers will deftly groom your pelt, eliminating uninvited fur from your face and coaxing brows into elegant arches that more masterfully frame your features. Buy up to five Groupons to stay silky smooth for the entire threading season, or treat your four fuzziest human friends to a lint ball made of their precious post-pluckings.
Wink has been featured on the CW 33, Pegasus News, and Daily Candy. Though most clients are too busy showing off their hairless skin to write reviews, four Yelpers and a pair of Citysearchers unanimously award five stars.
- Patel has hired a team of hair removal gurus including a former Beverly Hills celeb-studded, threading salon staffer. – Pegasus News
- When I had time, I stopped in hoping they would take me without an appointment. I was eagerly greeted at the front door by the owner and 3 other people telling me they would definitely take me! The owner was extremely welcoming, and the atmosphere was beautiful and clean. As a nurse, I am very particular about hygiene, and this place I can say is topnotch! – Michaela K, Citysearch
- I love this place. It is fast and easy and lasts so much longer than waxing. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. It also costs less then [sic] waxing. I would highly recommend giving this a try. – Lisa B., Yelp

About Wink Threading Salon
The white tulip chairs, sleek charcoal and orange décor, and recessed lighting may give Wink Threading Salon a modern feel, but their specialty service is rooted in tradition. Instead of relying on harsh wax, chemicals, or duct tape, the hair removal experts reach for a simple length of antibacterial thread. By twisting the threads together and sweeping them across the skin, the stylists are able to swiftly and precisely uproot stray hairs, creating smooth, sure lines on the brows, upper lip, chin, or forehead. A writer for D Magazine in the feature "The Best Eyebrow Job I've Ever Had" called Wink’s threadong process "less painful…than wax" and "less tedious than tweezing," and even claimed that afterwards she was so pleased that she "could [not] stop looking at [her brows] in the rearview mirror."
