BEAUTY REVIEW: Threading Eyebrows by Threads
Every time I visit Ireland, I get my eyebrows threaded in either Shavata in Harvey Nichols or Threads in House of Fraser. Threading is HUGE in India, hit Europe in the last few years but isn’t that big in Australia. I really wish it was!!
With threading, a thin cotton thread is doubled, then twisted, and is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair, so it’s heaps quicker. I also don’t find it as painful as tweezing. The above photo is my after photo. I didn’t actually take a before as I was so eager to get in the chair. As I’m naturally a brunette, my hair is quite dark. If I leave my brows to their own devices for a week, I would find it quite difficult to tame them. I’ve also had my brows waxed a heap of times. I don’t think waxing is for me at all. It’s usually effective between my brows, but not for long. I also find that when I’ve been waxed, I always find little strays after the appointments when I go home.
I took this photo directly above, three weeks after having my brows threaded. As you can see there is very little regrowth. I usually get about 4 weeks out of getting my eyebrows threaded but that time period wouldn’t be the same for everyone. It would depend entirely on how fast your hair usually grows.
A massive con for me, for getting my brows done this way, is that I sometimes break out in little red spots in the area (which you can kind of see in the first image) that has been threaded but this dies down after a day for me so I don’t find it bad enough to justify not doing it when the benefits far outweigh the red spots.
