Hibba Beauty has been a favorite of New Yorkers with great brows for years. The locations in Soho and on Madison Avenue have been covered everywhere from the pages of Allure to Refinery29. So we were thrilled when we heard Hibba Kapil was opening her newest location right here in Scarsdale, providing the same hair removal and brow shaping expertise, without the Metro-North train journey. We sat down with Hibba to talk about her gorgeous new Scarsdale salon, which opened on December 1, about what services she provides and what new customers can expect from a visit to Hibba Beauty.
For people who haven’t come to your locations in NYC, what is Hibba Beauty all about?
Enhancing your natural beauty is our number one priority and Hibba’s gentle, no-nonsense approach to hair removal will have you looking and feeling your very best. Our team of licensed Browologists and waxing technicians take pride in sculpting perfect arches and revealing your smoothest skin yet. Whether waxing, threading, or developing natural remedies, Hibba is dedicated to providing clients with a safe, positive, and uplifting beauty experience. We love what we do! I learned the art of threading from my grandmother in India. Eventually I became the “go-to” threader in my hometown. In 2000, I moved to New York to hone my skills, and opened my first salon in 2010.
Why did you decide to open in Scarsdale?
We had a lot of clients from Westchester who would come to the city locations. In searching for expansion, we went for this beautiful quaint neighborhood. I just love the sense of community and kindness and general concern people have here. So many times moms have come in during December and said that they will spread the word.
That’s so lovely. Can you tell me a little bit more about the services you provide—I know for brows alone you offer threading, sugaring, microblading, tinting and waxing!
We believe in creating beauty solutions that are precise yet natural. Threading is an ancient technique which I inherited from my grandmother, that helps pull the excess hair out by the roots, leaving behind impeccably beautiful shapes. We can help you grow out your brows gracefully over a few months. Similarly, sugaring is a paste, made of just sugar, lemon and water. Its 100% natural and is often termed as slow laser, since its constant use can permanently reduce hair growth. We also offer microblading which is hugely popular right now. It’s a semi-permanent tattoo, drawn to create natural feathery brows. You don’t have to fill your brows or tint them every day. We do also offer brow tinting, using a vegan dye. This is great to incorporate blonde hair into the shape of the brows, hence making them appear thicker and darker. Of course we do all kinds of body waxing and have often been written about as doing the best Brazilian and brow waxing in NYC. Finally we offer customized facials, using Hibba’s range of organic products, mixed with amore Pacifice and Eminence products.
Are there any services someone should stay away from if they are pregnant or breastfeeding?
We prefer not to tint during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Other than that we have a solution for all skin types and sensitivities.
What separates your salon from others like it in the area?
We run our business with lots of compassion, for our employees and our clients. In today’s day and age of fast dollar, we compassionately invest in quality control and training and investing in our employees. We are very truthful about what we put on our clients’ bodies and realistic with our goals for each appointment.
What can people expect from a visit to your salon?
We offer a warm greeting, a home away from home, some jazzy Bollywood music, impeccable service with attention to detail and most importantly, all of our clients are an extension of the Hibba family!
