Known as an ancient Eastern beauty treatment, threading has become a trendy phenomenon in the Western world. As a popular alternative to waxing, threading uses a cotton string, or thread, to twist and remove hair from the root, resulting in baby-bottom smooth skin for up to six weeks. This beauty treatment is quick, virtually painless and ideal for beauty gals with sensitive skin.

Frequently a buzz amongst the beauty bloggers including Beauty Junkies Unite and Rich Skinny Pretty, Thread Eyebrows is the hot spot on Melrose Avenue for threading. With your appointment lasting less than 10 minutes, your brows will be perfectly coiffed without any redness and lunch at nearby Urth Café will go as planned. Far more accurate than waxing, threading pulls the exact hair follicles you want gone and the chances of extracting one hair too many are slim to none. Appointments can be made by calling or online via the Thread Eyebrows website.

Vida Emanuel European Day Spa
9406 Dayton Way
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Salon owner Vida Emanuel transforms her 25-year history in body care and skincare into unparalleled expertise that sets her day spa apart from the rest. Emanuel uses threading for a precise and pain-free approach to brow shaping. Waxing rips the hair out in large (sometimes too large) areas, which can cause uneven brow lines, extreme redness, skin irritations and pain. After a threading appointment at Vida Emanuel European Day Spa, skin is smooth and doesn’t require ointments to calm any aggravated patches. In addition, the day spa features skin care services including facials, microdermabrasion, eye treatments and photo rejuvenation – all of which can be scheduled before or after a threading appointment.
