Threading is a hair-removing technique that originated in India. The process involves twisting a piece of thread into a double strand. The double strand is used to remove a line of hair. It is a natural remedy compared to waxing, Bhalodia said.
“Waxing can rip off skin,” she said.
In 1988, Bhalodia started taking cosmetology courses at Wake Technical Community College. She also attended Mitchell’s Academy and received her N.C. State cosmetologist license and began working at Mitchell’s Styling Salon at Cary Towne Center. Bhalodia worked at Mitchell’s until she became pregnant with her daughter. Bhalodia wanted to stay at home and raise her daughter, Chandni and son, Kishan.
She decided to continue her interest in eyebrow threading by opening Chandni’s Salon, named after her daughter, from the basement of her home.
“It literally means moonlight,” said Bhalodia. Her business became a success and outgrew the basement. “It was unbelievable,” said Bhalodia. Three years ago, she moved her business to Chatham Square. Chandni’s Spa and Salon offers its signature eyebrow threading along with facials, massages, hair cuts, color and waxing.
