Threading is an ancient method of hair removal practiced in many Asian countries, including Iran, India, Vietnam, China and some Arabic nations. It is popular in Persian culture where it is called Bande Abru ("Abru" means eyebrow, and "Band" is the thread).
Threading the entire face is widely spread amongst Iranians but it was originally practiced when a woman was getting married or during special occasions. In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and become a woman. It has also gained popularity in Western countries.
Practitioners use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and so on, plucking the hair at follicle level. Unlike tweezing where a single hair is pulled out each time, threading can remove an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line. However, due to a larger area of hair being removed at once, it can be quite painful for some.
Like other methods of hair removal such as plucking or waxing, threading can occasionally result in skin irritation and ingrown hairs.
As the top layers of skin are not peeled or traumatised, if done properly, threading is an alternative for those with sensitive skin or who use Retin-A, Accutane and similar products.
It's extremely sanitary - Nothing but the thread touches the skin, and it’s thrown away after use.
Great for people with ‘trouble’ brows -Threading has this amazing ability to be so concise in the hair that it removes. It’s sworn by people who say they can never get their eyebrows even, despite tweezing, waxing or sugaring.
No chemicals are applied on the skin -When people have certain circumstances, or are taking medicines which conflicts with waxing and sugaring, they can still get threading done.
It’s very fast -Although every technician is different, it takes the person who has threaded my eyebrows two minutes flat, from start to finish.
Temporary results can turn into permanent - Over time, frequent threading can cause the hair follicle to become damaged, and stop growing hair.
- If done incorrectly, the hairs can break - If hair is broken from an inexperienced threading professional, hair re-growth will show up much quicker.
- It can be hard to find someone experienced threading hair - It’s a true art that has been passed down through the generations, and isn’t something you can easily learn in a couple classes- especially to do brow shaping. Unless you live in a large metropolitan city (or Dumfries!), you probably won’t find a salon or spa that does threading.
- Some hair growth is necessary -1/16 inch of hair is needed for thread to wrap around.
- Not generally performed on the body, only the face - The body can have thicker and denser hairs and we would be there forever if we Threaded some body parts!
The discomfort is similar to tweezing, but the process is much, much quicker. Some people say they have very little pain from threading.
We can use a warm compress to relax the hair follicle for an easier exit, if you think this is necessary. You can also buy and apply a numbing spray, as I don't stock any, if you have a low tolerance to any discomfort.
As I have been Threading for over 6 months now, I thought I would give you a little feedback regarding it. Some clients find it less painful than waxing, some find it more painful than waxing, everyone has a different pain threshold at different times during the month.
BUT 9 out of 10 clients I ask about Threading, prefer the longer lasting effects Threading has over waxing. They also prefer that they are causing less trauma and reddening to their skin, which means they could almost get threaded and leave the Therapy room without anyone guessing what treatment they had been in for...
However, although I LOVE IT and love doing it as a treatment, I know its not for everyone and as such, am still happy to wax if that's what clients prefer.
