Changing My Hairstyle

A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that my hair was a little dated. I was kind of offended at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that she was right. I needed a change, but I wasn't sure what I wanted. I started doing a little research, and I was able to find an incredible salon near my house that offered what I was looking for. I made an appointment, and the hairstylist walked me through a litany of styles, colors, and accessories. This blog is designed to help people to learn more about what a spa or salon can do for you, so that you can change your look too.

No Strings Attached: What You Need To Know About Eyebrow Threading

When it comes to your face, your eyebrows' shape, width, and length can go a long way toward completely changing the way you look. But if the thought of tweezing – or even worse, waxing – your eyebrows in order to achieve the shape you want makes you wince and cover your brows, then you may just want to learn about a relatively painless eyebrow shaping technique called threading. So if you're curious about eyebrow threading and are wondering if it's right for you, then here's what you need to know.

What is Threading?

Eyebrow threading is an old practice dating back to ancient Central Asia or India (there are differing theories as to exactly where it's from) where a strand of thin thread is doubled over itself and twisted, then moved over unwanted hair to pluck it out, follicle by follicle. It pulls out more hair at a time than tweezing does, but not quite as much as waxing can. It also only removes hair, unlike waxing (which removes a layer of skin as well, exposing new and delicate skin to the sun's rays), making it a good choice if you have somewhere to be after your appointment and don't want to arrive with red, irritated skin.

What Are Its Benefits?

Threading has many distinct benefits over tweezing or waxing, especially for those with sensitive skin. Because it's not as harsh to the skin as tweezing or waxing, it can be done without worry on those who have especially sensitive skin, or who are extremely sensitive to pain and heat. It's much more precise than waxing and can be used to sculpt the eyebrows into whatever shape is desired, and can be used on people of all skin and hair colors (unlike laser hair removal, for example).

One of the most attractive things about eyebrow threading is the time it takes; eyebrows can be done in under 10 minutes, which is good if you're extremely busy.

What Are the Side Effects?

Like waxing or tweezing, threading your eyebrows can have a minor side effect – but unlike waxing or tweezing, it's nowhere near as severe and disappear quickly. The area around your eye can stay pink for around 10 to 15 minutes, but even that can be shortened by icing it immediately after. There are no other side effects to worry about, however, which immediately makes threading an attractive option for the on-the-go person.
