Have you ever considered giving eyebrow threading a shot? If the answer is yes, you're on the right track! Threading is a fantastic way to attain the eyebrows you've always envisioned.
While occasional tweezing has its place, it doesn't quite cut it as a comprehensive eyebrow service. To truly achieve your brow aspirations, understanding how to prepare for your threading session and how to care for your brows afterward is essential.
Translation: Relying solely on tweezing won't magically transform your brows into your desired shape anytime soon.
In this comprehensive guide, you'll delve into:
Unveiling Eyebrow Threading
Eyebrow Threading, an ancient method of hair removal, employs a thin cotton or polyester thread, doubled and twisted, to extract unwanted facial hair. Unlike tweezing, threading targets short rows of hair at the follicle level, facilitating precise shaping and maintenance.
The threading process involves sitting comfortably as an esthetician deftly maneuvers the thread to pluck unwanted hairs—including their roots—without contacting the skin. This eliminates the risk of cuts, infections, and skin damage.
Threading is safe and precise, eliminating the risk of skin damage.
Unlike tweezing, threading captures multiple hairs in one go, ensuring a uniform regrowth.
The technique's precision allows for quick and easy brow sculpting.

The services available for Eyebrow Threading are:
Men's Natural Brows
The Brow Maintenance appointment is an appointment for regular brow cleaning. Now that the shape of your eyebrows is defined from the initial eyebrow shaping appointment, this service is less expensive and only 15mins long.
Men's Natural Brows
Men’s natural eyebrow shaping is an eyebrow threading service for gentlemen. Unlike women's eyebrows, threading men prefer their eyebrows thicker. Although many men may not have heard about Men's Natural Brows Service, it is an excellent way to help shape men's eyebrows without having them look too feminine!
Lip Chin and Jaw are other areas on your face that you can request hair removal by threading appointment. This is also an add-on service for Brow Design and Brow shaping appointments.
Alternatively, this service can be performed with wax instead of threading. If you would prefer waxing you might be interested in reading this.
Full Face Threading includes all three areas of the face Lips/Chin/Jaw and does not include eyebrows. This service is performed by threading unwanted facial hair directly from the follicle of the hair, preventing growth for weeks. Alternatively, you could try our laser hair removal service under Hair Removal. This would help in reducing all facial hair permanently.
Threading Prep and Aftercare
When you arrive at the salon, you can do a few more things to prepare for amazing threaded brows.
Do a trial run. Worried about the pain of eyebrow threading? You’re not alone, but your tech is there to help. You can always ask if you can do a trial on the back of your hand. Although it will be slightly different on your brows, you can get a general idea of the pain level.
Talk about your ideal shape. Let your beauty specialist know what you want your brows to look like. Everyone is different, and your appointment will render different results from someone else, depending on your desired shape/fullness/etc. If you’re unsure about which brow shape will best suit you, you can always ask your professional brow artist their opinion.
Relax. I know this is easier said than done, especially if it’s your first time. Threading can be a bit uncomfortable (more or less depending on your pain tolerance). The best thing you can do is relax and get ready for the most beautifully sculpted brows of your life. And, you’re in and out in less than half an hour!
The service is over, and you absolutely love your brows, of course! While you may notice some redness, proper aftercare can help minimize this and any other discomfort.
Wash your face with cold water. One quick tip is to wash your face with cold water after your treatment. The cold water helps to reduce redness and may help relieve any other discomfort.
Apply aloe vera gel. Your eyebrows will probably be irritated, which is why many salons apply aloe vera to your brows for you. However, you can always use more after your treatment to help soothe the area.
Avoid sunlight. UV rays will likely cause more redness, so it’s best to avoid the sun as much as possible for a day or two after your eyebrow threading. The last thing you want is a sunburn on top of your red eyebrows!
Avoid steam and chlorinated water, too. Both of these elements can cause further redness and discomfort to the area. Needless to say, you want to avoid chemicals and heat for the few days following eyebrow threading.
Keep your hands off your brows. When you see something beautiful, you want to touch it, right? But touching your brow area can cause infection since the pores are opened from your treatment.
No makeup or creams, either. While you may want to hide and soothe your red brows, it’s best to avoid applying makeup and creams for at least a day. This is because your pores are opened and clogging them can lead to skin irritation.
A light moisturizer is okay. If your eyebrows are excessively dry from the treatment, it’s okay to apply moisturizer. Just make sure it’s a lightweight product that won’t clog up your pores.
Don’t overpluck. As your brows start to grow back out, it’s okay to tweeze a couple of hairs outside of your brow line. But, remember, it’s best to let them grow out before your next appointment.
