How Does Eyebrow Threading Work? [ A Complete Guide ]

What Is Eyebrow Threading?

Threading is an ancient form of hair removal that uses a cotton blend thread to remove hair from the follicle. The piece of string is wrapped around a follicle of hair and then twisted until the hair is pulled out to remove the hair. In terms of brow threading specifically, this technique allows the artist to best control the thread to achieve precise shaping results. When it comes to shaping brows, threading is the most precise form of hair removal, the BEST method for shaping brows, is gentle and ideal for sensitive skin, and removes hair from the follicle for lasting results. During a threading session, clients are typically in a reclining chair and asked to hold the skin taut with their fingertips from the top of the brow upwards and from their eyelids downwards. This makes the area more accessible for the artist to better shape the brows.

Before and After Care for Eyebrows Threading

Taking care of the skin where eyebrow threading took place is an important step in achieving the best results for your desired brow shape.

Before your eyebrow threading session, we recommend you stay away from any stimulating treatments to the skin that add more heat to the surface, for example, chemical peels or tanning beds, as this will make the skin more sensitive and can increase the likelihood of bad reactions. Although it’s not necessary, you can exfoliate the skin around the brow hairs to remove away dead skin. You can also prep the skin with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your skin nourished and smooth pre-threading.

How to take care of your eyebrows after threading is an important part of the threading experience. Since your pores will be open after your session, we recommend avoiding swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms, hot temperatures and direct sunlight in general.

You can soothe any slight irritation with ice cubes, rose water spritz, aloe vera cream, tea tree oil, daily moisturizer, and sunscreen. All of these elements will help soothe the threaded area and provide a layer of protection against harmful UV rays that could add irritation to your skin.
