What Is Eyebrow Threading?

Whilst your eyes are often the first feature of your face a passerby will notice, how your eyebrows frame your face will define your look, and so many have opted for eyebrow threading to reduce excess brow hairs.

A technique that was originally developed in India, eyebrow threading is a technique where a thin thread is twisted and rolled over unwanted hair and plucks them out, essentially working like a roll of tweezers all working at once.

It has become increasingly popular compared to similar eyebrow waxing treatments because it allows for a lot of control and only pulls follicles, making it gentler on the skin and allows for highly precise results.

The treatment can vary in time but for experienced threaders can take around 30 minutes, and lasts about four weeks before unwanted brow hairs begin to grow back, although the more the process is repeated the easier and less painful the treatment gets as the root is weakened.

Some brow stylists will offer a cooling gel after treatment to calm the skin, given the treatment can cause redness around the eyebrows.

Alternatively, there are a few other options, such as tweezing brow hairs individually, destroying hair follicles with precise electrolysis heat waves, as well as laser removal, although some providers will not treat anywhere near the eye.

However, if you want cleaner, shaped eyebrows, some treatments should be avoided. Depilatories or hair removal creams are far too strong to use around the eyes can cause redness and irritation.

Shaving leads to cuts and nicks given that few razors are designed with brow removal in mind, and waxing on your own can lead to way too much hair being pulled out, burns and irritation.
