Eyebrow Threading or Waxing?

Eyebrow threading originated from India and is widley used in India and Middle east. Even salons in western countries are widely offering eyebrow threading services to their clients now. In current suitation, the popularity of threading has sky rocketed and many celebs are using threading as a method of eyebrow hair removal. It is a very different technique than any other hair removal method as it involves twisting a double stranded thread, which is always made entirely of cotton and once hairs are woven into the thread, they are then pulled out. This threading technique is not just for eyebrows but can be also be used to remove other facial and body hair.

The main benefits of threading is that the results are know to last longer until three to four weeks because it does not irritate the skin and putting toner over the area you threaded helps close the pores left open from the hair removal. It is not expensive and they do not use any chemicals at all. Eyebrow threading can be bit painful than tweezing but it is not as painful as waxing.

Eyebrow waxing has been practiced in western countries from many decades. It  involves applying either cold or hot wax over the part of the eyebrow to be waxed then strip of muslin or linen is applied over the wax and massaged into the wax. After the hair stucks to linen or muslin it is ripped off quickley. Waxing may offer good shapes, it is likely that they will not be nearly as precise as the shape that you can achieve through eyebrow threading. Eyebrow waxing is something best left to the professionals only because applying molten wax to the brow area near your eyes could end you  to A&E as it takes specific training and years of experience to really master this technique. Some people can have sensitivities towards depilatory wax so it could trun into nightmare.

From my own experience, I love threading more than waxing. I had my brows waxed once and it was very painful. I was not happy with the results as well. Threading does hurt a bit but it is more accurate than waxing or tweezing. Threading is the best way to get your eyebrows done because when you wax them its taking part of your skin off every time. I would recommend threading to everybody.
