What Is Best: Eyebrow Threading Or Waxing?

Eyebrows come in all different shapes and sizes but one thing they all have in common is that they can become unruly at times and need some much-needed TLC. That is why going  to a beauty professional will give you not just your desired shape but will leave your eyebrows with a smoother finish and long  lasting results.

The root of the hairs can be removed by waxing or eyebrow threading. While waxing is unquestionably a cornerstone in salons, threading is a more fashionable alternative that is only recently becoming popular in Western nations but has been practised for millennia in Asia and the Middle East.

So, which is better for brows: waxing or threading? Although they can all produce comparable results, your final choice may be influenced by important distinctions like duration, efficacy, and the possibility of adverse effects.


Let’s Talk Threading …

Although this method of hair removal for the eyebrows is not at all new, threading has recently become popular. The art of threading is very simple, all it requires is a piece of thread and an expert professional who knows how to wield it. It works by rolling each hair between two pieces of twisted threads which pulls the hair out in a very similar way to plucking.


What Are The Eyebrow Threading Pros?

There are many pros when it comes to threading your eyebrows but the main ones are that it can be slightly less painful than waxing, with the bonus that there is no risk of burning from the hot wax. Also, there are long-lasting results, which range between 4 to 5 weeks. Not to mention,  if you have sensitive skin or suffer from spots or acne, then the nature of waxing can aggravate the skin and this can result in further irritation, pimples and breakouts.

What Are The Eyebrow Threading Cons?

If threading is done incorrectly, it can result in irritation and ingrown hairs. It also can take a bit longer than waxing your eyebrows. When doing anything to your face you should leave it to the qualified professional to get the best quality results that you deserve and help to prevent any side effects or further issues.

What Should You Do Before Getting Your Eyebrows Waxed Or Threaded?

Before any facial beauty treatment, we would recommend ensuring that your face is completely makeup free. If you forget to go into your appointment with a fresh face, one of our aestheticians will probably wipe away your makeup to begin, but we would suggest removing any eye product you may be wearing before getting started. 

We would also suggest that you not exfoliate your skin before having your eyebrows threaded. Sensitive skin can fetch a much higher risk of itchiness and redness, which can take much longer to fade. 


Can People With Sensitive Skin Have Their Eyebrows Threaded? 

Suffering from sensitive skin can mean that you avoid beauty treatments and some potentially may be too aggressive. This can be particularly true with  waxing as traditionally, hot wax is used. The very nature of ripping the hairs out of your skin may cause irritation and pain, not to mention redness that can take a while to fade 

However, threading is a great option for your sensitive skin and might be the best hair-removal method for you. The thread is still plucking the hairs from the root but in a less aggressive manner and this, even though it may take longer, will be less aggravating and painful in the long run.
