The inevitable question – Threading or Waxing or Tweezing?

Well groomed eyebrows hold great power and visual impact on your overall facial appearance than any other singular feature. And precision shaping holds the key. While I have personally tried every technique available, I have found Threading to be the most precise and least painful way of shaping brows. It is a fairly ancient technique that’s gaining lot of popularity now and rightly so. I have enlisted few advantages of threading for your quick reference:



Threading is more precise and gives a defined eyebrow shape according to your facial features


No burning, peeling or irritation; a great remedy for ingrown hairs


Good alternative especially for sensitive skin people


Can thread every week with clear, sharp lines whereas for waxing, hair has to grow for 4-6 weeks for it to be long enough


Threading can be done to all parts of the face (not just eyebrows)


Waxing can peel and traumatize the top layers of the facial skin


Waxing can make your skin prone to breakouts and redness


So what is threading exactly?


Practice of shaping eyebrows using a 100% cotton thread


Twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle.


A very gentle, sanitary, and painless way of removing unwanted facial hair (no chemicals involved)


Threading is also used to remove hair from the upper and lower lip as well as other areas of the face


Hair re-growth becomes finer and sparser after regular treatments
