Threading is an ancient method of hair removal, commonly practiced in Eastern countries like Egypt and India and the revolution has now begun in the West. Threading removes the entire hair follicle, lasting up to 6 weeks. This method simply uses a cotton thread which is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle. It is the most natural way to take care of your brows as there are no chemicals applied to the skin. Threading is not only used on the eyebrows, but also on the upper lip, chin, sideburns or any area of the face. It is quick, relatively painless, and lasts much longer than traditional waxing.
The benefits of having beautiful eye catching brows, is that it instantly frames the face, allowing for a clean, defined appearance.
There are no side effects to this method of hair removal.
Great for people with ‘trouble’ brows. Threading has this amazing ability to be so concise in the hair that it removes. It’s sworn by people who say they can never get their eyebrows even, despite tweezing or waxing.
Your brows are the most significant tool used to enhance your appearance by flattering your facial shape, balancing your features and framing your eyes, it can help you look younger and “lift” the eyes so they appear firmer.
It’s very fast. Although every technician is different, it takes the person who has threaded my eyebrows two minutes flat, from start to finish.
No chemicals are applied on the skin.
The most sensitive skin can tolerate threading, even if you are on any medication like roaccutane or rennova threading will not cause pigmentation.
Unlike waxing it does NOT make the skin thin over time.
Threading does NOT reduce the elasticity of skin. Reduced elasticity can cause premature wrinkles and could also result in the skin sagging.
It’s extremely sanitary. Nothing but the thread touches the skin, and it’s thrown away after use.
Temporary results can turn into permanent. Over time the hair follicles will grow into shape required if done repeatedly over time.
It is best to ensure that threading is done by a professional brow designer to get the shape you desire. (At Beautiful Brows all Brow Designers/ Therapists are trained by Unaiza Moideen herself – one of the first women to have brought the threading concept into S.A.)
Some hair growth is necessary – a minimum of 2mm of hair is needed for thread to wrap around.
Unless you live in a large metropolitan city, you probably won’t find a salon or spa that provides this service. (Exclusive to certain shopping malls)
Generally performed only on the face.
THE OUCH FACTOR
The discomfort is similar to tweezing, but the process is much quicker. This is dependent on the individual and their pain threshold, however the majority of our regular clients find the slight pull quite pleasing after a while.
WHERE TO FROM HERE?
Visit The Brow Bar and receive a consultation from one of our therapists who will advise you on what shape will best suit your face and give you a number of options – do you like thick brows, thin brows, high arched brows etc. So together you and your brow designer can see what shape will best highlight and enhance your facial features. In the case of chin or lip threading you will receive advice as to how long the hair is, if it is noticeable, is threading necessary and the number of visits you will need to control your facial hair (generally every 6 weeks). After that has been decided you will relax in one of our salon chairs, the therapist will cleanse the brow area or area on the face where they will be working and then the art work begins… after approximately 5 minutes the process is complete.
