As opposed to waxing, tweezing, or lasers, threading is considered one of the safest and most precise methods of hair removal, especially in the delicate areas surrounding the eye.
Threading is an ancient way to remove hair that sprung from Egypt and India. For reasons you'll learn about below, it's becoming very popular on the west side of the globe as the go-to method of getting rid of unwanted fuzz.
How Does it Work?
A thread (often made of cotton) is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, trapping hair in what can be described as a mini lasso, and uplifts it right out of the follicle.
Because it removes hair from the follicle, it can last up to six weeks.
It's extremely sanitary. Nothing but the thread touches the skin, and it's thrown away after use. There's no worry about double-dipping like with waxing, or other tools not being sanitized.
Great for people with 'trouble' brows. Threading has this amazing ability to be so precise in getting each hair it's after. It has a cult following from those who say that other shaping methods, like tweezing, waxing, or sugaring, could not make their brows look even.
No chemicals are applied on the skin. Many have allergies and skin sensitivities, which make it a gamble anytime they put product on their skin. With a string, there are no chemicals or products used, and it can prevent a lot of unnecessary irritation. (Sometimes the tech will cleanse skin or apply powder before removing hair, so please alert them of any allergies.)
It's very fast. Although every technician is different, it can take as little as two minutes flat, from start to finish.
Temporary results can turn into permanent. Over time, frequent threading can cause the hair follicle to become damaged and stop growing hair.
