Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know About Threading

1. How Does Eyebrow Threading Work?

You probably already know that threading removes hair, and is most commonly used to remove hair from the face because it’s the safest, quickest, and most precise way to remove unwanted hair. But how does it actually work? Here’s a step-by-step guide of how threading safely and gently removes unwanted facial hair.

  • Step 1– A piece of cotton thread is doubled, then twisted
  • Step 2– The thread is rolled over unwanted hair, traps it, then gently and swiftly lifts the hair right out of the follicle. (Think of the thread as a mini-lasso, rounding up those stray hairs and pulling them out)
  • Step 3– This process is continued around the eyebrow until the desired shape and size is achieved.

That’s it. No chemicals. No messy wax. No hassle.

2. Is It Safe To Thread Eyebrows?

Yes! Threading your eyebrows is MUCH safer than waxing or even tweezing. With threading, there is absolutely NO damage to your skin. You are left with flawless brows and little to no pain or irritation.

3. Is It Painful To Thread Eyebrows?

Not really. While everyone’s pain threshold is different, threading is practically pain-free. If your roots are deeper, than threading might be a tiny bit more painful since the hair is being removed at the root, instead of being broken off at the surface of your skin like with waxing.

If you’re concerned about feeling pain while threading, fear not! Here are some helpful tips we’ve created just for you to minimize discomfort.

Always go to a professional threading studio

Please please please make sure you go to a threading studio with a good reputation, like us at Beauty By Dolly! Don’t let your friend who watched an online tutorial, or that girl in the booth at the mall touch your brows. Threading requires precision, purpose, and professional training. Check out Yelp reviews of threading studios in your area to make sure your brows are in the best possible hands. A professional browtist will work quickly and gently to shape your brows. You’ll be done before you know it.

Avoid caffeine before threading

Coffee, teas, and other caffeinated drinks stimulate your blood vessels and can make your nerves more sensitive. So if you’re worried about pain, hold off on that Starbucks drink until after your session.

Keep your skin taut while threading

Your browtist will walk you through the process of how to hold and stretch your skin to reduce any discomfort you may feel during the process.

Avoid threading if menstruating

Where you’re at in your cycle can impact your pain tolerance. Some women may find that they’re more sensitive to pain right before, or during menstruation. So keep in mind where you’re at in your cycle to make sure you aren’t getting threaded at a time when your skin is the most sensitive.

4. How Long Does It Take To Get Your Eyebrows Threaded?

Threading is much faster than tweezing! With threading, you can actually remove entire rows of hair at one time, and grab smaller, finer hairs that tweezers would miss. Getting your eyebrows threaded from start to finish only takes 5-10 minutes.
