Furnished in a very contemporary interpretation of an Indian interior, Bombay is a very tiny space but also very warm and welcoming. You are offered chai and seated comfortably on one of the burgundy chairs and introduced to your esthetician. I opted for the “bombshell brow” service ($23). First you go through a short consultation using the “3-point technique” to achieve the brow shape best suited for your face. Once that’s done, threading begins! It’s the fastest, most precise technique to achieve the cleanest, sharpest line. The initial feeling of threading is a bit odd: it almost feels as if someone is scraping your skin. But does it hurt? I don’t think so. Pretty painless, actually.
