LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The iconic, fashion-forward Fred Segal store announces an eye-catching addition to its coveted NewBeauty space with the launch of Ziba Beauty‘s The Art of Threading® Studio. Launching as the first store-in-store concept in Fred Segal on November 1st, the addition of Ziba Beauty’s brow threading services is the perfect example of how a leading beauty brand is leveraging a highly popular retail space to attract new clientele.
“Threading is one of the most sought-after solutions for brow shaping in the U.S.,” says Steffanie Attenberg, VP Group Publisher at NewBeauty. “It was a natural fit to partner with the innovators of this art form to bring a results-driven beauty treatment to NewBeauty at Fred Segal.”

“Our vision is to be the global leader in brow and body artistry though The Art of Threading® and The Art of Mehndi®,” conveys Tonya Giver, General Manager for Ziba Beauty & Sumita Beauty. “To achieve that, we have designed a solid franchise program that will help us reach our goal of 501 studios by 2021, as well as one-of-a-kind progressive curriculums featuring The Art of Threading® and The Art of Mehndi®. We will launch through our Ziba Academy in California and as part of accredited esthetic university programs in the UK beginning spring of 2013.”
