What is Threading?
Threading is ancient hair removal technique where antibacterial cotton thread is used in a special method to remove facial hair. Threading artist twists the cotton and rolls this over the skin to gently lift the hair from the follicle. Most people don’t realize every time they wax they remove layers of skin. The delicate skin around your eyes and mouth is therefore becoming susceptible to damage and early signs of aging because of this repeated damage to the skin.
It is as popular with men as it is with women, though they still shave the beard part of their face with a traditional safety or straight razor, doing their ears and eyebrows with thread. Threading is the technique preferred by Indian movie (Bollywood) stars, who are often distinguished by their crisp brow lines.
Eyebrow threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow. The technique is also not terribly expensive because it is easy to do quickly and does not require costly chemical ingredients. For women who would like to pursue a more natural beauty regimen, eyebrow threading is a good choice, since it does not use harmful products.
Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and some depilatory creams can.
How does it Work?
An antibacterial cotton thread is pulled along the unwanted hair in a twisting motion, this traps the hair in a mini lasso, gently lifting the hair right out of the follicle. Threading removes the entire hair from the follicle, leaving smooth skin that can last up to 2-4 weeks. Perfect for eyebrows and other facial hair removal.
What are the Benefits?
These are numerous…..apart from being 100% natural as there are no nasty waxes or chemicals, you also don’t turn bright red like you do with waxing. This means you can come in your lunch hour and go back to work and no-one will know except they will see your fabulous eyebrows. Threading also picks up all the hair on the surface even all that really fine hair that waxing never gets. You will see and feel the difference. It is also more accurate and you get a fabulous shape to your brows and more refined than other methods.
Threading is also recommended and an excellent option for those has sensitive skin.
Does it hurt?
Once you try it you will realize it is nothing like you would expect. Most of our clients say it is really relaxing - have you ever been relaxed during waxing? Some areas of the face can be more sensitive but generally most clients think it is quite pleasant and are very surprised.
How long does it take to get done?
Eyebrow threading takes approx 5-15 minutes depending if a total reshape is required and other areas of the face are usually only about 5 minutes.
We recommend threading every2-4 weeks for the best results. (It also depends on person’s hair growth)
