Pretty Threading and Blowdry in Rancho Santa Margarita

we were guests of Pretty Threading and Blowdry

We are all born with natural beauty. When you want to enhance that beauty it’s important to find the right salon. Pretty Threading and Blowdry in Rancho Santa Margarita is the destination salon for hairstyles, threading, makeup, and henna. The Rancho Santa Margarita location is the second salon that Pretty has opened. She  also has a location in Mission Viejo that has become well established over the past five years.

The RSM location is a mix of modern America and traditional India. From the gorgeous blue chandeliers to the white pleather beauty chairs, the moment you walk in you know you are in for a  wonderful experience.


All of Pretty’s employees are licensed to practice the beauty treatments they provide. Even though the state doesn’t require licensing to practice threading, Pretty ensures that her employees are licensed and they are required to have two months training and practice with her prior to working on clients. This attention to training and technique ensures that her clients receive a quality treatment, leave happy, and become loyal customers.

Hair styling is available only at Pretty’s RSM location. Her licensed cosmetologist will provide you with a blow dry style (shampoo, blow dry, style), a dry style (style without a shampoo), or an elegant up do. Jessica did a wonderful job on my blow dry style. She took time to get to know me, what I wanted for a style, and was considerate in answering all the questions I had for her.


My sixteen year old daughter loved her dry style. She left with dozens of beautiful spiral curls in her long blonde hair.


In addition to hair styling, my friend and I had our eyebrows threaded. If you’ve never experienced threading – you need to come to Pretty Threading and Blowdry! As I mentioned, she ensures quality with the training and experience she requires prior to allowing her employees to work on clients. I will never go back to waxing or tweezing my eyebrows again now that I’ve experienced threading. I was worried that it would hurt, but in my opinion waxing and tweezing is significantly more painful. Granted, I only had my brows done, not my upper lip. I’m told that hurts a bit more.

The art of henna is another beauty treatment from India that is beginning to make waves here in the OC. In India, girls learn the art of henna from a young age as girls and women wear henna for weddings and festivals. It’s a true art form that requires a steady hand along with creativity and artistic skills. You’ll see henna most often on women’s hands and arms. The henna is applied similar to piping frosting on a cake. As it dries it will flake off leaving a light orange/brown stain behind. In the next day or two it will darken to a true brown and lasts for about 7-10 days. Designs range from small simple flowers to large intricate designs.


Professional makeup application is also offered at Pretty’s salon. Pretty, or one of her licensed cosmetologist, will take the time to find out what you want from your makeup – do you want subtle or bold? Do you want neutral colors or a splash of color? No matter what you choose, you know you will walk away beautiful.


We had a truly enjoyable and memorable experience at Pretty Threading and Blowdry. I know I will be returning and hope that all our readers will visit Pretty for their beauty needs.
