7 Things You May Not Know About Eyebrow Threading

If you are looking for the best-shaped eyebrows, then having your brows threaded is one of the best ways through which you can achieve that result. For the longest time, people have been threading their eyebrows for aesthetics purposes. Whether you are planning to go for your first session or you are used to getting your brows threaded, there are a few things that you need to know about the procedure. Let us look at seven things that you may not know about eyebrow threading:

  1. It originated in the Eastern World
  2. While the process of threading has gain popularity in the west, this centuries’ old beauty process is thought to have originated in the Eastern World before spreading to the other parts of the world.

  3. A piece of thread is the only tool used in threading
  4. Just as the name implies, threading uses a thread as the only tool for trade. The aesthetician or beautician will hold a piece of thread, made from cotton or polyester, with one end of the thread between the teeth and the other end over the hair follicles. The aesthetician will then use the mini lasso-shaped thread to pluck the unwanted hair from the eyebrow area.

  5. It should be a painless process
  6. Threading needs not be painful. If done right, you will not feel any pain. Unlike waxing where you feel real pain during the whole process, threading will leave you with no pain. Remember the secret is to work with a qualified and experienced aesthetician who knows exactly how proper threading is done.

  7. It should be very quick
  8. Threading is a super quick procedure which can be done in under five minutes. Of course, the speed at which the whole process is completed depends on the amount of work that needs to be done on your brow coupled with the experience of the aesthetician. Threading takes a relatively shorter time compared to waxing.

  9. Unpleasant results if done incorrectly
  10. As stated earlier, you cannot risk entrusting your eyebrows to an unskilled threader. The result can be very disappointing and might include a broken hair follicle making it easy for the threaded hair to grow back, they can leave weird gaps in your eyebrows or subject you to unnecessary pain. You can avoid this by cherry picking the aesthetician you entrust your brows too.

  11. Threading needs some hair
  12. It is a total waste of money going for a threading session when you have no hair to be threaded. Make sure that you schedule your threading appointment when you have some hair growth that can be threaded. It is recommended that you should have hair growth of about 1/16th inch before going for your next appointment.

  13. You can take part
  14. Your aesthetician will most definitely ask you to pull your brow to make it just tight enough for the threading process to proceed seamlessly. Don’t worry about it, your beautician will tell you exactly what you need to do.
