Our eyebrows are one of the most important features of our faces. We can spend so long shaping, filling them in, and trying to get them the way we want them. Not to mention, there are so many techniques for shaping your brows out there. The most popular are waxing and threading. How about we learn about their differences and benefits?

What is Eyebrow Waxing?

Eyebrow waxing consists of applying a thin layer of wax to the brow hairs you wish to remove. A paper strip is placed on top of the wax and swiftly pulled away, pulling out unwanted hairs from the root. Other types of wax may not require the paper strip. Additionally, because of the warmth of the wax, your pores are softened, and hairs are removed straight from the follicle without breaking. 

The Pros & Cons of Eyebrow Waxing

The best benefit of waxing your brows is that it is instant and long-lasting. Additionally, it is recommended for people who find threading and tweezing very painful. Not to mention, the hairs can grow back softer and finer with regular usage. However, if you are undergoing chemical peels or using Retinol, you should not get your brows waxed. This is because during these treatments, your skin is extremely sensitive, and waxing may irritate it even more. 

What Is Eyebrow Threading?

Eyebrow threading is a technique that uses a twisted thread to gently pull the brow hairs from the follicle. Compared to other hair removal techniques, threading is much more precise, which is great for getting the perfect brow shape. Additionally, it is safe for sensitive skin since it does not irritate the skin as waxing does. For instance, waxing removes a very thin layer of skin and hair, which is why your skin can get red and irritated. On the other hand, threading will just remove the hairs and no irritation.

The Pros & Cons of Eyebrow Threading

Threading is a great option if you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergies. Some people might be allergic to wax and end up getting pimples after a waxing session. Additionally, threading is a much more precise process to get all those stubborn hair out of the way. However, threading can be a lot of work for the client. You often need to pull your skin tightly since you can get cuts if you don’t pull it tight enough. Additionally, the process can be irritating to some people. It’s best to contact a specialist.
