Your first eye-brow threading will feel like you’ve gone through a rite of passage. Seriously, it is such a convenient and cost-effective eyebrow art that those who visit Magical Waxing for their first threading always wonder why they never tried it sooner.
Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair removal technique with its roots in Asia. Those who are virgins to this cotton-twisting treatment are often in disbelief of how a string can singlehandedly shave off unorganized hairs. Others are curious about how it compares to waxing and what to expect on their first threading appointment at Magical Waxing. We’ll break it all down for you here.
During your threading appointment, your first consultation will be to decide on the final shape you want for your eyebrows. Our eyebrow therapist will then take a piece of thread and twist it on itself as she glides it along the eyebrow following a pattern that will lead to the agreed shape. You will feel like several pieces of hairs are being tweezed at once. It’s really a quick process that should take about 15 minutes for both eyebrows.
Threading pulls the hair from the roots which means it will initially take two to four weeks before they grow back. You will find that after several appointments it might take longer for the hair to grow back because they are weakened, but this largely depends on your hair type.
Eyebrow threading at Magical Waxing costs almost the same price as waxing. If you’re scared of the pain that accompanies waxing and can’t afford microblading then you’ll find that this offers the best value for your money.
On your first threading appointment you’ll likely be told what to expect, but you can ask as many questions as you wish. Aftercare for threading may involve an option to apply Aloe Vera gel to reduce the “rosy skin” appearance, an Asian-style head massage and filling of brows with your product of choice. Avoid applying any makeup (foundation/concealer) after your appointment.
