The 101 on Threading VS Waxing

Threading?!?! You are going to use thread to remove hair from my brows? 

I know, I know... It sounds too good to be true, but guess what? It is the most amazing thing that has ever happened!

Threading is a method of hair removal that first originated in India and Central Asia. This method dates back 6000 years! It was a treatment that was once only given to those about to embark in marriage. A threaded/groomed eyebrow symbolized that you were of a marital status. Today, threading is popular worldwide. 

Now, I'm sure we have all heard of waxing before, but for those of you who haven't there are two types. Soft wax and hard wax. The type of wax used generally depends on the stylist. Soft wax adheres to the hair and the skin, which exfoliates the skin. Hard wax only adheres to the hair, there for no exfoliation is given to the skin., but is found to be much bulkier and hard to work with. 

I, like many others was addicted to my wax pot. I could do anything with it, or so I thought. Then I was welcomed into the wonderful world of threading. 

 Sleek Brows incorporates threading in every treatment! 


Here is why I chose threading over waxing:

1. I can thread anyone. I can thread someone who has been or is currently using Accutane, Retinol, or who has just received a chemical peel. 

2. Threading is all natural. There are no chemicals or heat involved. Which reduces the risk of burns and break outs. 

3. Threading removes ALL the hair from the root. Even the vellus hair. I can make a very clean and precise line on brows. 

4. Threading does not compromise the collagen and elastin in the skin. You know all the tugging and pulling from waxing? It will breakdown your collagen and elastin, resulting in looser skin on the upper eyelid. 

Threading takes time and patience to master. Carry your thread with you everywhere you go, you never know who might need a little clean up ;) 

Happy Threading!
