What is threading?
Threading is an ancient art of facial hair removal. It has been practiced for centuries in India and other parts of Asia and the Middle East. The process involves a special piece of thread, made of 100% cotton, in which the ends are knotted together to make a circle. The thread is then twisted to form the shape of a bow tie and glided along your skin. As the unwanted hair comes into the twist of the thread, it is lifted straight from the roots.
How is it different than plucking or waxing?
Plucking - It is easy to get a little pluck-happy with tweezers. Once you start, it's hard to stop! Soon, you are left with just a skinny line of a brow or with uneven lines. It is also really difficult to grab fine hair with tweezers. And boy can this process take forever!
Waxing will leave you with clean lines but one false drip or application of the wax and you could have an entire clump of wanted hairs accidentally ripped off. Most describe their skin as feeling raw right after. And those with extremely sensitive skin due to the use of glycolic products or Retin-A, could be left with missing skin. Ouch!
Leaves you with clean lines on the top and bottom of your brow and is quick and often less painful than plucking individual hair with tweezers or applying hot wax to delicate skin on your face. Threading can grab multiple hair at once or fine individual hair giving great control to the Threading Artist. Most use threading for their eyebrows and upper lips, but some also use threading for their entire face! It leaves your skin feeling smooth naturally without the application of any chemicals to your delicate face.
Where do threading artists learn their trade?
Threading Artists are few and far between in the U.S. Most of our Artists learned their skills in India or the Middle East. It takes years for Threading Artists to perfect their skills and learn how to create clean lines with precision while creating a soft arch and the perfect shape suited to enhance an individual's facial features and structure.
How does it work?
It's done with a piece of thread. By knotting the thread and creating a trap, hairs are removed by the roots or closest to the roots.
How long does it take to do eyebrows?
5 to 7 minutes.
Does it hurt?
It may sound painful, but threading is a lot less painful than waxing. Many of our clients say it hurts less than waxing and some say it does not hurt at all.
What are the benefits of threading vs. waxing?
Here are a few:
1. Threading does not peel a layer of skin.
2. The majority of our clients--90%--experience no redness or swelling. If redness or swelling occurs, it is gone within 30 minutes.
3. No irritation or bumps at all.
4. Hair does not grow back as fast, and hair regrowth is finer.
5. Threading removes even the finest of hair and feels smooth like baby's skin.
