What is “Eyebrow Threading”?

Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair-removal technique, practiced for centuries among the most beautiful women of Asia and the Middle East. 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.

How does threading work?

Here at The Brow Boutique, a threading expert takes a thin cotton thread and twists it into a double strand, which then is swept along the skin. With rhythmic – almost hypnotic – movement, the unwanted hairs are secured in the thread and lifted from the follicle with precision and finesse.

Is threading better than waxing?

Yes threading is known to be a superior option to tweezing, sugaring or waxing. That’s why salons in the States have experienced an exponential growth in the demand for this service. This eastern method of hair removal involves less discomfort and eliminates the chance of your coming in contact with wax that is too hot for tender facial skin. Hair is removed from the root so there’s less of that “grow-back factor.” This extends the time between salon visits, saving time and money and maintenance in front of the mirror! …And, because of the precision involved, “threaders” can hone their artistry, creating perfect brows for everyone’s unique face shape and personality.

What areas of the body can be threaded?

  • Eyebrows
  • Sideburns
  • Lip
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • and Fingers

What’s the main benefit of threading?

Threading’s main benefit is the manner in which the eyebrow is shaped-not just from underneath, but also from the top. One of the major drawbacks of tweezing, especially when done at home, is that it’s easy to remove the wrong hairs, creating holes or divots in the shape of the brow. Certain thicker hairs on the bottom line of the brow act as supportive “scaffolding” for the entire brow, so if you inadvertently remove the wrong hairs, the whole shape collapses. Then you are left with trying to camouflage your goof until the hairs grow back.

Threading eliminates this common mishap. Some of the other benefits are :

  • Less messy and time consuming than waxing.
  • 100% natural; no artificial waxes, chemicals or invasive techniques used
  • Hair does not grow back as fast.
  • The skin doesn’t usually get red and irritated.
  • Threading can target individual hairs.
  • Hair only needs to grow just above the skin to get threaded.
  • Over time, hair becomes finer and more sparse.
