You deserve to look beautiful and feel your best.
If you want beautiful, well-defined brows, threading is a great way to go about it. So, before you book your next brow wax or pull out the tweezers, take a look at this guide to all you need to know about eyebrow threading. This information will put you on the path to better eyebrows with complete confidence.
What is Eyebrow Threading?
Threading is an ancient form of hair removal, originating from the Middle East that has been practiced for centuries. it is a 100% natural form of hair removal performed on the eyebrows and face. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which can leave the skin on your face susceptible to sun damage. The threading specialist takes a piece of cotton thread, twirls it around the fingers and is able to remove the targeted hair from the root. Eyebrows can be shaped to absolute perfection, and face can be perfectly de-fuzzed, leaving you happy with the beautiful precise shape and smooth finish you want!
Threading is also one of the gentlest types of hair removal. As the cotton only pulls the hairs, your skin doesn’t get caught in the crossfire, meaning that it’s an ideal option for anyone with sensitive, irritable, or acne-prone skin. But, even though it is gentle, you’re still removing hairs. So, you can expect a little redness and if your skin is extra sensitive, possibly minor irritation.
Benefits of Eyebrow Threading
The biggest advantage from threading is undeniably the beautiful, defined brows that you’ll find yourself with after the treatment. As the method is all about precision, the process can remove even the shortest unwanted hair from its follicle. As such, it’s the ideal option for achieving perfect eyebrows and won’t leave behind half-grown stray hairs, such as other hair removal methods. Just make sure you choose an experienced technician. A tech who knows what they’re doing will have complete control over which hairs are removed and which are left behind. So, if you want those perfectly arched brows of your dreams, threading is the way to go.
Another benefit of threading is that the maintenance is easier than with other methods of hair removal. As the process is incredibly precise, it can tackle even the shortest and finest of hairs. As such, threading can remove all your unwanted strands at one time, unlike tweezing which often leaves partly-grown follicles behind. Therefore, as your hairs are removed at the same time, they’ll grow back at the same time, meaning that fewer touch-ups are necessary. To keep your brows looking defined and divine, all you’ll need to do is have them threaded every 3-4 weeks
Does Eyebrow Threading Hurt?
If you’ve never tried eyebrow threading before, it may be because you’re concerned that it’ll hurt. Don’t worry, though. You’re not alone. Fear of how much threading will hurt is one of the biggest deterrents for potential clients. The truth is though, this method of hair removal isn’t nearly as painful as many people believe it to be. In fact, many customers tend to describe threading as an unusual sensation or uncomfortable, but not painful. Others say that it feels like tweezing multiple hairs at once.
If you’re still concerned about how it will feel on your skin, let the technician know before you begin. You can even ask them to first do a trial on the fine hairs on the back of your hand so that you can get accustomed to the sensation. Once you see that it doesn’t hurt on your hand, you’ll be feeling confident enough to move up to your brows.
How to Thread Eyebrows
The Eyebrow Threading process is rather simple, and your technician will help you through it. Before you start, just be sure to speak up if you want a particular shape or are trying to grow out any areas. Doing so will ensure that you get the results that you want without any surprises when you look in the mirror.
While working, the technician can choose to thread one hair at a time or do a whole line. As such, they have incredible control and can add great definition to your brows. Just remember to try not to flinch during the process, or you may end up with an unwanted bald patch. You may also be asked to pull your eyelids in opposite directions throughout the threading. Doing so will ensure that the skin is taut and that the area is easy to work on. If you’re unsure what to do, just ask your technician for a little guidance.
