Threading is the best way to remove excess hair and shape eyebrows.
Eyebrow threading is a cost-effective alternative that’s equally as good at shaping your brows. Plus, it’s much gentler and less painful than other options like waxing.
Originating in Iran, India, and Central Asia, threading has been around for centuries. But, anyone who hasn’t had their eyebrows threaded before probably wonders how a single piece of string shapes brows and gets rid of stray hairs.
First things first, here’s how eyebrow threading actually works: A piece of thread is taken and twisted on itself as it’s glided along the brow to shape it. The hair is removed from the follicle, but it doesn’t damage the skin. Before the actual threading happens, you’ll be given a consultation to decide on shape. The whole process takes around 10 minutes to complete.
Since threading only removes the actual brow hair, not skin, it is less painful than waxing. This also makes it more precise, so your threading artist will be able to remove finer hairs that usually don’t stick to wax. While waxing and plucking can often leave unwanted stray hairs around your eyebrows, a threading artist goes through your hair, row by row, giving eyebrows a clean and defined shape.
Threading is also a great option if you have sensitive skin that’s prone to irritation. At Studio Thread, we offer organic products and the natural technique that doesn’t use harsh chemicals on your face. People who take particular medications or with certain skin conditions may turn to threading to remove their hair because it’s gentler on the skin than some other types of hair removal. For example, some dermatologists recommend that people who use acne medications — including Accutane and topical retinoid creams — choose threading over waxing because the former only affects hair and not the skin underneath.
