Perfectly groomed eyebrows can help frame your face and make you feel more self-confident. Eyebrow threading and waxing are two of the most popular methods to remove brow hair, and each comes with its own pros and cons. The estheticians at Brow to Toe Waxing and Skin Care Studio in Hampstead, NC, provide a rundown of each technique to help you determine what’s best for you.
Waxing uses a resin or wax to remove hairs from the root and can give you beautiful looking eyebrows. If you’ve never gotten your eyebrows waxed before, you may feel some discomfort the first time, and the surrounding skin may become a little red. It’s best not to get your eyebrows waxed the same day as an important event as your skin may be irritated.
Eyebrow threading began in India thousands of years ago and involves twisting and pulling a piece of thread to remove the hair follicle by the root. The technique can remove sections of hair with every pass of the thread and allows a lot of precision. Threading can remove the tiniest hairs, giving you defined eyebrows. Because the skin itself isn’t getting pulled, there’s a minimal chance of irritation. However, you may feel some tugging and discomfort during the process.
Is Waxing or Threading Better?
No method is better than the other. Both eyebrow threading and waxing pull out hair from the root, and the results will last approximately two weeks. The method you choose will depend on your individual preferences. For example, if you are looking for convenience, threading is the better choice. Unlike waxing, you don’t have to remove makeup or lotion from your skin beforehand or apply an aftercare treatment.
