Eyebrow threading vs waxing Which achieves better results? The battle between threading vs waxing of the facial hair is still dicey. Some prefer waxing while some people like threading, both methods have their pros and cons. In today’s blog, we’ll discuss why threading or why waxing…
Let’s begin with waxing – Eyebrow waxing involves melted wax being spread over the area in which hair removal is desired. Salon aestheticians and technicians usually discuss the desired brow shape prior to applying the wax. Eyebrow waxing can hurt, although this varies based on an individual’s pain threshold as well as the texture and amount of hair to be removed. Smaller or finer hairs are sometimes not caught by the wax and they then need to be removed afterward with tweezers. The skin is usually reddish and can sting for a while afterward. The soothing cream is usually applied by the brow technician afterward to reduce redness and discomfort. If you have sensitive skin, you may walk around with visible redness in the waxed area for a couple of hours.
Next comes threading – Eyebrow threading is a semi-permanent hair removal technique, viewed as an alternative to waxing or plucking. It has grown in popularity recently due to the fast, natural, and long-lasting results people see. In this process, a thin cotton or polyester thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level.
Does eyebrow threading hurt?
This is a very common question but in my opinion – it merely depends on your own tolerance for pain and the skill of your beauty artist. Even though threading is essentially pulling hairs from their base, it is not painful, unlike waxing or plucking. In fact, many clients describe the sensation as unusual or uncomfortable rather than painful.
It is faster than waxing and offers more precision when it comes to shaping the brows. It also requires the skin to be held taut and can result in some redness afterward, although it is generally considered to be less irritating to the skin since the thread is only applied to the hair, not the underlying skin.
Is Eyebrow threading hygienic and durable?
In regards to eyebrow waxing versus threading both require an emphasis on hygiene as infections can be spread. Eyebrow waxing should not include “double-dipping”, meaning that ideally, each client has a freshly sanitized, individual pot of wax, wooden spatula, and waxing cloth strips. If the same wooden spatula goes into a communal pot of wax, that is double-dipping and is not sanitary practice. Eyebrow threading also requires sanitary practices. A fresh thread should be used for each customer. Hence, in the case of hygiene, threading would be the preferable one.
When it comes to comparing eyebrow threading vs waxing maintenance times, the former lasts longer i.e, about 5 to 6 weeks before the full growth is visible again. Although, the cost of eyebrow waxing and eyebrow threading is approximately the same. Some people think threading hurts less than waxing and some think otherwise, but the best way to choose between the two may be to try each method at some point and then make a personal decision about your preference.
