In threading, we double a thin (cotton or polyester) thread, then twist it. This is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair. Eyebrow threading allows for a more defined and precise shape and can create better definition for eyebrows. It is also used as a method of removing unwanted hair on the entire face and upper lip area.

Facial & Eyebrow Threading FAQs
What exactly is threading?
Threading involves a piece of thread that is twisted and pulled along areas of unwanted hair by lifting the hair follicle directly from the root. The technique allows you to pull one hair or multiple hairs at a time from the root without the use of harsh chemicals. Unlike wax, threading is able to pinpoint and target the tiniest of hairs, so you can say goodbye to unwanted peach fuzz or hard to reach fine spots around the eyes. The ability to tug on those micro hairs makes it even more thorough than plucking with regular tweezers.
What parts of your body can you get threaded?
Threading can be done on any part of your face. The most common hair that’s threaded is the eyebrows but you can also thread your chin, upper lip, forehead, neck, middle brow, and the sides of your face.
Does it hurt?
It’s been found to be less painful than waxing, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to feel anything. With waxing, pain usually stems from the tugging, pulling, and stretching of the skin. Threading differs as it targets the hair follicle and leaves the skin in place, the pain is similar to tweezing. When the thread grazes the skin, it’s a light rubbing but nothing extremely painful. Different parts of the body have different sensitivity, so areas with more delicate skin like the sides of the face, or above the lip might feel more painful.
How long does the process take?
The complete eyebrow process shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes, but can differ for other parts of the body.
How often can you have eyebrow threading?
Hair regrowth can vary from person to person but we recommend between every two to five weeks. Since threading removes hair from the root like waxing, it lasts just as long.
