Naeem Akhtar and Manjit Ahuja, at Touch of Thread in Uptown Susanville, tell us that as women get older and experience hormone changes, it can often cause an excess of unwanted facial hair. If you’ve been experiencing this lately, you might want to try a chemical free, all natural solution to plucking and waxing. Hair threading is an ancient technique that has stood the test of time. It is less painful, there are no break-outs, and they’ll professionally shape your eyebrows to flatter your face. You can select from individual areas on your face and neck or have a full face threading treatment. Stop by their unique boutique at 22 North Lassen St., and check out the latest in embroidered, beautiful dresses and skirts, purses, jewelry and home décor, too. Be sure to tell them the newspaper sent you.
