When the owners of Saloni, a threading and waxing salon in Union Square, learned ancient depilatory techniques at schools in Bombay and Delhi, they had no idea their household skills would enable them to start a business in New York City. Yet here they are, ridding NYC of unwanted hair for $17 a session. With twisted thread and impressive dexterity, an aesthetician will shape your eyebrows to complement your eyes and face, a quick process that is only mildly uncomfortable and yields results lasting two to three weeks. Other facial hair can also be threaded away; waxing is for larger, less sensitive body parts. And if you’d rather have something added than removed, ask them to adorn you with a henna tattoo ($30).
