When mothers first sprinkle a baby’s bald head with water and fertilizers, they can only guess how the ensuing hair will grow. Today’s Groupon lets clients take control of their own wildly growing follicles: for $11, you get $22 worth of threading, waxing, or other products and services at Sumita Beauty in the Fashion Show Mall or any of their other locations.
Sumita Beauty harnesses a variety of ancient arts and modern services to smooth body surfaces and bring out beauty. Threading can purge facial pastures of unwanted crabgrass that resides on foreheads ($6), upper lips ($6+), and eyebrow borders ($11+). Formulated and developed exclusively in India, the technicians use special Sumita wax to cleanse the body of follicle fuzziness with waxing services of the underarms ($15) and bikini zones ($15+). The henna-based art of mehndi ($10+) and glitter mehndi ($15+) are great for adding eye-popping designs to your natural canvas or covering up regrettable temporary tattoos.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
