Eyebrow Threading: 8 Things to Know Before Trying It
Eyebrow threading is a technique, that has been the primary mode of hair removal in Asia for centuries. It consists of rolling twisted cotton thread over the hairs, which then rips each follicle right out of its pore. Now although it does not sound like an enjoyable activity, especially if you have a low pain threshold, I guarantee that after you see the results, there’s no going back.
So, if your skin gets easily irritated with waxing, and you’re constantly suffering from ingrown hairs with plucking then eyebrow threading may just be the best option for you. If, however, you’re still unsure about what makes it different and even better than other hair removal methods, read on for 8 things you need to know before your first appointment.
It Doesn’t Hurt That Much
This is probably one of the biggest factors that holds so many people back from having their brows threaded. But it shouldn’t because although it is an unusual sensation, it’s not painful. If you’re super nervous, you can try it on the peach fuzz on the back of your hand first to get a general idea of how it’ll feel.
It Gives Your Brows a Detailed Finish
At its core, eyebrow threading is all about precision because it gets every single hair, there are no stray hairs left behind. It also allows for total control and you can get really precise with shaping and threading one hair at a time or a line of hair to achieve well-defined brows.
Maintenance Is A Lot Easier
Unlike tweezing or waxing, which may not always catch onto shorter, partly grown hairs, threading can remove all your unwanted hairs at once. Allowing them all grow in at the same time as a result and reducing the amount of touch ups you have to do every week.
It’s a Quick Process
With most experienced and highly trained brow professionals, threading is a quick process, so don’t expect to be sitting there for forever. The whole thing usually takes about 10 minutes tops and if your brows are in good shape, it’ll take even less time.
It Costs Around the Same as Waxing
If you are considering switching from eyebrow waxing to threading, depending on where you go, they’re usually in the same price range. However, costs usually vary based on location and salon specialty.
It’s the Gentlest Form of Hair Removal
Since it’s only the hair is getting pulled out, and no pulling or straining on your skin, there’s very little chance of irritation.
It’s Still Not So Simple
While it is the gentlest form of hair removal, you’re still removing hair, and if your skin is really sensitive there can be a little redness and some minor irritation caused. If this happens, simply apply a cooling gel, such as aloe Vera, or tea tree gel to soothe the skin, and remove any redness quickly.
It’s only for Facial Hair
Because of its precision, threading is considered the best solution for facial hair removal such as your brows. It is not recommended for anywhere else on your body. For larger areas, we recommend waxing or laser as they’re a faster and painful method for those areas.
