We're in the season of hair removal, so you may be shopping around for a new method. If waxing and tweezing your brows have left you scarred (either physically or emotionally), maybe threading is for you. But if you still have some questions about threading, we're letting you in on everything you need to know before you cozy up in the threading chair.
What it is: Threading is a hair removal method that has ancient roots in India and Central America. The technique involves a thread, as opposed to a tweezer or hot wax, that is used to gently pluck away hair at the follicle.
How it works: A heavy-duty thread is doubled up and then twisted to create a tiny lasso. That miniature opening is then placed over the hairs, closed, and pulled to remove them.
Pros and cons: Threading is completely sanitary, since only the thread is touching your skin, and it is discarded after each use. It's also fast and can pull multiple hairs out instead of one at a time. However, since so many hairs are being pulled out at a time, some feel as if threading is more painful than waxing or tweezing. Also, threading can be slightly more expensive than waxing and tweezing.
What to keep in mind: Always look for an experienced professional when booking your brow appointment. It's also important that you speak up in the chair . . . just letting your technician do their thing is a surefire way to get exactly what you don't want.
