Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair removal technique that has been used for centuries in many cultures. It involves using a thin cotton thread to remove eyebrow hairs from the root, providing more precise control over the shape of the eyebrows than waxing. Threading is also gentler on the skin and can be used to remove even the smallest hairs. Before your appointment, it's important to discuss your desired eyebrow shape with your threader.
Threading is a relatively quick process. After cleaning the brow area with alcohol, the thread is twisted and pulled along the areas of unwanted hair, acting like a mini-loop and lifting the hair directly from the root without any chemicals or unnecessary pulling of the delicate skin. The regeneration rate is individual, but clients typically have their eyebrows threaded every two to three weeks. Jaimineey Patel, training director at the Blink Brow Bar in London, explains that threading allows you to dictate which hairs you want to keep or remove, so you can always have the perfect shape.
Threading is also great for grabbing even the smallest hairs, making it an excellent natural option for those with thin eyebrows. Threading has many benefits compared to waxing. It provides more precise control over the shape of the eyebrows and is more gentle on the skin. It can also attack stubble and fluff-like growth that waxing wouldn't normally overlook.
So why all the fuss about eyebrow threading? It's a simple process that is often considered one of the most painless (and least invasive) options for shaping eyebrows. With its origins in Asia centuries ago, threading is now a popular choice for those looking for a natural way to remove unwanted eyebrow hairs.
