Best Threading: Chez Shiraz

Best Threading: Chez Shiraz
PHOTO BY John Leach

The idea of having hot wax around one's eyes can send even the toughest fashionista into convulsions. But, after an unfortunate over-plucking episode that left a set of brows looking like a penciled-on, hot mess, we knew we had to find an alternative. A friend suggested threading. (Insert confused look here.) After some research, we were sold! Threading is an ancient method of facial hair control involving, yes, threads. Chez Shiraz is home to Shiraz, a master esthetician – friendly and warm, quick yet precise. Her own goddess beauty is her best billboard. Been going to her ever since; even tossed our tweezers (she insisted). Do your eyebrows relate to this story? Call Shiraz. She'll coach them back to life in no time.
