You can wax your legs, use a razor for your armpits or lasers for other parts of the body. However, when it comes to the eyebrows, threading is the only way to go. Threading has long been popular in many countries and when done by experienced professionals, you’ll lose your excessive eyebrow hair and shape them the way you prefer. It’s cheaper and more efficient than most other methods and is becoming quite popular.
In eyebrow threading, a very thin, entwined cotton thread acts almost like a pair of scissors to remove unwanted hair from the brow. Though it doesn’t epilate, it works at the follicle level and hair doesn’t grow back for the next 2 to 3 weeks. It takes 5 minutes or so. You have to tighten the skin around the brows with your hands while the professional is threading the hair strands.
While threading your eyebrows, the technician stretches the skin to make it tight. It’s a common misconception that threading is painful. While true that threading for the first time may smart a bit and if the hair is thick or bushy it will require a firmer tug to get it out cleanly. Once you grow accustomed to threading the pain will become bearable and worth it.
The professionals don’t only remove unwanted hair; they give a perfect shape. With time, some follicles will produce weaker hairs making return visits less frequent. You must be consistent else they will re-establish themselves. The hair in your eyebrows grows pretty fast and some people have stronger hair than others.
You may face some pain in the beginning but later you’ll be stunned by the results.
Once you opt for threading, you’ll see your eyebrows arched and shaped. A must try for all you ladies, it’s certain to be better than waxing or plucking.
