What is Eyebrow "Threading"...?
Threading is an ancient epilatory technique, believed to have originated in India and then spread to it's neighboring Countries (Sorry I don't have proof..:-))
The basic technique is easy to learn. But like any other acquired skill, one needs a lot of practise
to be good or even perfect at it.
This artistic skill, of shaping Eyebrows or removal of Facial hair, with the use of a special Thread is called or known as Threading.
It has nothing to do with needles...! Many of our first time clients had misconceptions about it and joked, that was one of the first reasons why they were afraid to try it...& the second- finding an experienced "Threading Technician" or an "Eyebrow Threading Artist" who really knows she/he is doing.
The Thread is looped and twisted to grip the hair firmly along the surface of the skin, gently gliding the hair out of the follicle without breaking or cutting it or the leaving broken hair under the epidermis.
It is great for people with sensitive skin, as unlike hot Wax there is no yanking or pulling of the delicate skin on the eyelid along with the hair.
At ArchAngels, we believe... threading is the best technique for removal of facial hair.
It is non-chemical and safe!
I prefer to call it a holistic beauty service...loll. I am, yet to meet a client of ours who has gone back to waxing or tweezing after having tried Threading with us.
Why is it better than other eyebrow shaping techniques?
One does not have to wait for the hair to grow a certain length unlike waxing or tweezing because
even if the hair is 1mm/2mm (or sometimes even less) above the skin, it can be removed with this technique.
Threading allows precise shaping and smoother arches. It lasts longer than waxing or tweezing. Unlike tweezing("plucking"), threading makes it possible to remove a clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. Also, when the hair grows back it does not grow in all different directions like thorns on a pretty rose...ouch. But, it grows relaxed and flat against the skin(i.e. if done right)
How often should one get the eyebrows threaded?
Every two weeks is the best routine to follow. Your brows will look clean and defined for two weeks,
Then as they grow out, brows steadily start losing their shape and begin to look scattered, untidy and shabby.
Also, our Clients are so used to having beautiful brows ....the acknowledgments and the compliments that they receive, that they love to keep them well groomed and maintained.
Who performs a "Eyebrow Threading" service?
It is preferable, to get Threaded by an experienced and properly trained Eyebrow specialists. Availing Threading services by an inexperienced and improperly trained technician can result in uneven brows, hair breakage, ingrown hair, unnecessary pain, pinching or bleeding of the skin.
