- What is threading?
Threading is an ancient form of hair removal, originating from the middle east, and we believe it started from the time of Cleopatra! it is a 100% natural form of hair removal performed on the eyebrows and face (and also after sugaring to get rid of those pesky stray hairs!). The threading specialist takes a piece of 100% cotton thread, twirls it around the fingers and is able to remove the targeted hair from the root. Eyebrows can be shaped to absolute perfection, and face can be perfectly de-fuzzed, leaving you hairless and happy!
- How long does threading last?
Threading can last anywhere from 3-6 weeks depending on your personal hair growth. Since threading removes the hair from the root, it lasts longer than other forms of hair removal such as tweezing or shaving.
- How often should I get threading done?
Normally clients wait anywhere between 2-4 weeks for threading sessions. However, all this depends on your personal hair growth and what you feel comfortable with! Threading removes the tiniest and finest of hairs so even if you need to come in for a quick clean-up before a party, or just to keep yourself looking ultra fabulous, you can come in as often as you’d like!
- Can I tweeze in between threading sessions?
No, we do not recommend tweezing between threading sessions. Threading slows down and reduces hair growth. hair also grows much thinner thus making it easier to remove and less painful when threaded. Tweezing just one time in between will reverse all that is achieved from threading and can further irritate follicles which can cause hair to become ingrown, coarser, and darker.
- How long should i wait to get threaded after i’ve tweezed?
3-4 weeks at least is recommended. It takes time for the hair to grow out each of the 3 cycles. If you come in prematurely you may not achieve a desirable result.
- Will my hair grow back thicker or darker after threading?
No, your hair will never grow in thicker or darker after threading. Since threading removes the hair from the root, your hair will become finer over time.
- Can threading be performed on the whole face?
Yes, threading can be performed, and is the preferred method for hair removal on the face. It is a 100% natural, non-abrasive form of hair removal, so you’ll never have to worry about burning, pigmentation, or pulling on your skin!
- Can threading be performed on your whole body?
Although threading can be performed on the whole body, is it definitely not the preferred method of hair removal for such large areas. For the body, we perform sugaring or waxing, which is less painful and a more time efficient for larger areas. post waxing or sugaring, we thread over the freshly waxed area to get rid of the pesky stray hairs that linger!
- Does threading have any side effects?
No, since threading is 100% natural, there are little to no side effects. Those with ultra sensitive skin may experience redness. Those who are trying threading for the first time may experience minimal irritation. In this case, we recommend using a cold compress on the affected area, followed by a dab of hydrocortisone.
- Can threading be performed on someone who is using a topical or oral acne or skin-thinning medication?
Absolutely. Threading can be performed on any type of skin. since threading is 100% natural, you do not have to worry about reactions to the skin.
- I have such blonde brows + peach fuzz on my face, it is nearly non-existent, would threading still work for someone like me?
Fret not!-threading your brows and shaping them actually brings them to life! Once you get them done they will look thicker, fuller, and darker. Even if the peach fuzz on your face is invisible, threading the face allows makeup to glide on and give the skin a flawless look.
- What is sugaring?
Sugaring is another ancient technique that also dates back to the time of Cleopatra. It is a 100% natural form of wax that is made out of sugar, water, lemon juice, and glycerin. It’s much gentler on the skin than waxing, and it’s been known to hurt less because the sugar only adheres to the hair and not to the skin.
- Is sugaring and waxing performed the same way?
Yes, sugaring and waxing are both applied with a wooden spatula and removed with a linen strip.
- Is sugaring better for my skin than waxing?
Sugaring may be better for skin that is extremely sensitive, or for someone who is using medication that can make the skin extremely sensitive. due to its natural properties, it causes little or no reaction.
- How long does my hair need to be before I come in for a waxing or sugaring?
We recommend that the hair is at least a quarter of an inch long. it should be able to lay flat on the skin. if you are worried about it being too long, don’t worry, our aesthetician will make sure to trim it down to the right length.
- How often do I need to get waxed or sugared?
We recommend making an appointment every 4-6 weeks.
- What is the aftercare of sugaring, waxing, or threading?
Please visit our aftercare to find out about any and all aftercare that may be beneficial or necessary.
- Can I tweeze or shave between waxing appointments?
Definitely not! Waxing slows down and reduces hair growth. hair also grows much thinner thus making it easier to remove and less painful when waxed. Shaving just one time in between will reverse all that is achieved from sugaring and waxing and can further irritate follicles which can cause ingrown hair.
- How long before a special event (i.e. birthday or wedding) should I get threaded or waxed?
We recommend coming in at least 2-3 days before your special event to get threaded, waxed, or sugared.
- I know your website says that you take walk-ins for threading, but I’m in a rush, can I make an appointment for my eyebrows?
Yes, you may call into call in to any of our locations and make a 15-minute appointment time dedicated especially to you ($15) and bypass the wait. Please note that it is not required, and we generally recommend that you walk in unless you are in a rush.
