As the name already depicts, use of a thread to get rid of eyebrow hair right from the follicle. Many people may think of this as a new technique. Removal of eyebrow hair by using thread is the earliest hair removal technique that has been used in the Middle East for ages.
Compared to other methods like eyebrow waxing, many people prefer eyebrow threading because it is a cost-effective process that causes less pain and discomfort.
The threading technique is an alternative to waxing and plucking. However, there are still many people that are unaware of threading and how it can enhance beauty.
WHY CHOOSE THREADING
Other hair removal procedures and techniques contain chemicals, and threading does not hold any chemicals. The only thing that is used in eyebrow threading is a soft cotton thread.
People who have sensitive skin that is prone to redness or itchiness would benefit significantly from a natural technique like threading. Threading can remove the line of hair neatly at once. With threading, the thread artists perfectly shape the eyebrows.
LESS PAIN AND TIME SAVER
As compared to other hair removal techniques, it is agreed that threading is less painful because the thread itself does not contact the skin during hair removal. Threading also saves time as tweezing your eyebrow hair by hair consumes a lot of time.
Threading solves this difficulty by removing multiple hairs at once. Eyebrow threading hardly takes from 5-15 minutes to attain your desired eyebrow shape.
DO THREADING LAST LONG?
It depends and varies from person to person and how fast their hair grows. For most people, the results last for about 2-5 weeks. The advantage of threading is that threading weakens hair follicles, causing hair growth to be less dense over time.
So the more you get your eyebrows done through threading, the finer the hair will grow, and the less you will have to thread.

IT COMES WITH MINOR SIDE EFFECTS

GUIDELINES BEFORE EYEBROW THREADING
- DO NOT EXFOLIATE
Normally, you don’t experience any issues when using exfoliating products on your skin, and it is advised to refrain from using them on the day of your appointment for threading brows.
That is because exfoliating your skin before your day of the appointment will only make your skin more sensitive and can lead to a more severe form of redness.
- KEEP YOURSELF HYDRATED
You must have heard it before that water is your skin’s best friend. But when you’re planning to get your eyebrows threaded, getting your skin hydrated is even more critical.
The reason behind it is that a properly hydrated skin experiences less sensitive reactions even when the skin is pulled, and pressure is applied to it while threading.
- DON’T USE MAKEUP
Keep your face free from makeup on the day of your eyebrow threading appointment. The area around your eyes and eyebrows should be thoroughly cleansed.
The best you can apply on your skin is talcum powder. On your appointment day, apply it on your eyebrows as it can facilitate the absorption of excess oils.
- NUMB YOUR BROWS
One technique that is very beneficial right before the eyebrow threading session is the usage of ice-cold water to wash your face.
After washing face with ice-cold water, gently massage your eyebrows with ice cubes as it will help in numbing the area that will be affected by threading and is especially beneficial for people with a low tolerance for pain.
