2915 Dundas St W
Sruti Simkhada and Ronald Smith began Aakriti Threading & Wax Bar in 2017 to make their high-quality products and services more accessible to the public. They soon opened their second location in the Junction at 2915 Dundas Street West. Inside, you will find a wide range of all-natural and organic solutions for your body, hair, and skin. Further, skilled estheticians provide a wide range of services to enhance and refine natural beauty, helping everyone look and feel their best.
As you might guess from the name, Aakriti’s specialty is eyebrow threading, the ancient art of hair removal and shaping with a cotton thread. Threading was first practiced in Egypt but quickly spread around the world due to its speed and simplicity, its gentleness towards the skin, and the level of precision and definition it achieves. All of these factors make threading ideal for completing your perfect eyebrow look. According to Sriti, the perfect brow is essential since they are the focal point of all our facial expressions, so you always want them to look their best! With their high standards, knowledgeable team, and specialized products for your post-treatment skin care, Aakriti is the place to get your threading done.
Other services you can enjoy at Aakriti include an Indian head massage, a therapeutic massage that loosens muscles, relaxes tissues, and removes emotional and physical stress. You can also participate in henna art, a traditional form of body decoration dating back thousands of years worn for festivals, ceremonies, and weddings.
The unique name of Aakriti beautifully encapsulates the philosophy of the business. Aakriti is Hindi for shape or reflection. Therefore, the goal of Aakriti Threading & Wax Bar is to have all their customers look at a mirror before they leave and see their happy, beautiful image reflected at them.
Given her passion for customer care and high-quality products, it should be no surprise that Sriti’s favourite Junction businesses also embody the same principles, such as Cosimo’s Hairstyling and Quality Jewellers, all of which are on the same block!
So if you are looking to up your health and beauty game, come to Aakriti. They offer consultations, and their dedicated team is always on hand, ready to answer any questions you have.
You can find out more at their website here, and you can also find them on Facebook and Instagram.
