The Art of Threading

Threading is an ancient method of hair removal used in many countries. It is a very gentle, sanitary and less-painful way of removing unwanted facial hair. The all new art of shaping and sculpting the eyebrows is accepted in the USA as one of the safest yet all natural methods for facial hair removal.

An Art of Perfection

Threading is very precise and allows our specialists to have greater control over which hairs are removed, resulting in a better brow shape for you!



Most people who breakout from waxing tend to have much better results with threading. Threading is dermatologist-recommended for individuals who are currently using skin-thinning medications such as accutane and retin-a.


The Ouch-Less Factor

Threading is found by many to be much less painful than waxing, since threading only targets the individual hairs. Skin irritation is kept to a minimum, unlike waxing, which causes unnecessary stretching and removal of the face's delicate top layers of skin.


Wrinkle Prevention

Waxing can tug, pull, stretch and even remove delicate skin on your face, eventually facilitating the development of wrinkles! But, there is good news: threading does none of this! So instead of torturing you face with wax, opt for threading, which will result in hairless happiness!



Threading is an acquired skill that only trained professionals can perform, it is a craft that requires time and practice in order to perfect and it is also an art form creating clean precision lines, refining the quality as well as the appearance of the face. Threading is the answer for those who are looking for a more precise, and less painful hair removal process.

Henna Tattoos


Henna is a plant known for it's use to color and condition hair naturally. The henna plant grows in warm climates in India and Rajasthan.

The leaves from the plant are crushed and made into a paste to safely draw designs directly on the skin. The results of this temporary tattoo will be reddish brown and will last a few days to several weeks.

After "growing out" my uneven eyebrows I decided to venture into the world of threading. After finding Amita on Yelp I called and was able to make a same day appointment on a Friday afternoon.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience.  She has a cute little space. It was relatively quick (though not as quick as waxing) and it didn't hurt that much! ( I compared the feeling to having a rubber band rubbed on my face) Although, I initially thought my brows were too round, Amita quickly gave me more of an arch, and in the end I was really satisfied and I will definitely be going back!
She is cash/check only, and luckily she has 3 banks within a block of her studio!  Valerie A. Yelp!
