Threading VS Waxing

Waxing vs Threading: The age-old debate!

Waxing vs Threading? With countless TikTok brow tutorials and viral ‘celebrity brow’ videos flooding social media, where do you even begin? Well, it all starts with the perfect brow shape, but you definitely want to avoid the biggest brow faux pas – plucking! There are excellent brow hair removal options available, but today, we’ll focus on the age-old debate: should you wax or thread your brows? Which option is better for your brows and skin?

Understanding the Difference

Waxing and threading, while often grouped together, are fundamentally different methods. Waxing, as the name suggests, involves the use of wax to solidify on the skin, trapping individual hairs before swiftly ripping them away. Threading, on the other hand, employs two cotton threads to gently pinch and pull each strand of hair up and out of the hair follicle. The precision of threading is mesmerizing, as skilled beauticians deftly manipulate the threads to single out hairs and create a precise shape.

Threading: Precision and Gentleness

For precise hair removal and gentle treatment of the skin, threading is the preferred choice. It’s particularly suitable for those with allergies, sensitive skin, and a propensity for acne. Threading offers a smoother and more precise finish than waxing, even removing the smallest, fine hairs. If you’re following the skincare trend of using retinol – which you absolutely should, as it prevents wrinkles, brightens dull skin, and minimizes breakouts – threading is the safest choice, eliminating concerns about chemical reactions. Threads target your brow hairs, not your skin, making it gentler than waxing, which must be applied to both skin and hair.

Waxing: Quick and Effective

Waxing is not ideal for individuals with sensitive skin, as some wax products may contain chemicals that can lead to irritation. Those with sensitive skin should always perform a 24-hour patch test to ensure no adverse reactions occur.

However, if you find threading too painful, waxing remains a viable option, and with regular use, hairs can grow back finer and softer. If you choose to wax your brows, do your due diligence and seek qualified, experienced beauticians specializing in waxing – like us.

Waxing is perfect for clients without sensitive skin, who prefer a quick and painless solution. It delivers instant results, making it an excellent option for those who are not fans of threading or tweezing.

Threading is ideal for clients with sensitive skin, especially those who have recently undergone skin peels or are on medication that prevents waxing. It offers precision and a tailored shape.

Pro Tips for Brow Waxing or Threading

To ensure the best results for your brow wax or thread, follow these guidelines:

  1. Remove makeup and cleanse your face with an oil-free makeup remover to prevent hair-coating.
  2. If you have sunburn in the area, reschedule to avoid harming your sun-sensitive skin.
  3. If you opt for waxing, avoid using products containing AHA (commonly found in anti-aging and exfoliant skincare), as it can make the skin more fragile.
  4. If you’re on your period, consider rescheduling, as hormonal changes during this time can increase sensitivity and make the process more painful.
