Emirates Woman seeks out the best therapists to help you fight the fuzz…
Best for: Eyebrows
Salon: Cut Above
Armed with her reel of string, Valley will prune your brows to perfection. Whether you prefer straight, arched or curved, she has the skills to open up your peepers – you’ll be amazed at the difference.
Top tip: After a series of threading, cleaning and trimming, your brows can feel a little sensitive, so sweep over a cotton pad soaked in rose water for an instant calming effect.

Best for: Waxing
Salon: Sisters Beauty Lounge
Lily makes the monthly waxing pit stop a far less painful experience. Using Lycon wax – a hard wax that’s better than the traditional strip wax – she pulls out even short hair. Lily’s thorough yet efficient technique means it’s all over faster than you can say “pass the hair removal cream.”
Top tip: Don’t exfoliate before or after waxing – you’ll make your skin angry.

For those who’ve grown tired of the shaving, plucking and waxing cycle, laser is the answer. After a thorough consultation and evaluation of your skin and hair types, therapist Eirene will choose the correct laser for your treatment. After applying a layer of Emla numbing cream, the laser is then run over your limbs, zapping hair follicles and weakening them.
Top tip: Don’t expose the treated areas to the sun, ideally for two weeks, post treatment.
