Eyebrow Threading

What is Eyebrow Threading?

Eyebrow threading is a hair removal technique. A skilled Aesthetician uses a cotton thread to remove unwanted eyebrow hair by twisting and rolling the thread over the hair, which is then pulled from the follicle. Threading creates precise, well-defined eyebrow shapes.

How Does Eyebrow Threading Work?

Eyebrow threading is a hair removal technique that uses a twisted cotton thread to remove unwanted eyebrow hair. A skilled aesthetician will roll and twist the thread over the hair with their hands, capturing and removing the hair from the follicle, while holding one end of the thread in their mouth. This technique provides clean, precise control and brow shaping with defined lines. It's a quick and easy alternative to using hot wax or chemicals to produce clean, well-defined eyebrows.

The Eyebrow Threading Procedure

During an eyebrow threading procedure the aesthetician will first cleanse the brow area. They will hold one ed of a cotton thread in their mouth and use their hands to create a twisted loop.

The thread is then rolled and glided over the unwanted hair, precisely removing it from the follicles.

The process achieves clean, well-defined eyebrows.
