So every one of us, especially women are practicing this threading method as a way of plucking unwanted hair as much as possible. Almost every day they thread them in order for them to be as gorgeous as they can be. But the question is, how long does eyebrow threading last?
But before that, for starters, let us define “Eyebrow Threading”:
Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair-removal technique, practiced for centuries among the most beautiful women of Asia and the Middle East. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which can leave the skin on your face susceptible to sun damage. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin.
By far the least invasive method of facial hair removal, this method creates a graceful brow with clean, well-defined edges that frame the eye.
How does threading work?
A threading expert or anyone that has the capability of doing it including yourself takes a thin cotton thread and twists it into a double strand, which then is swept along the skin. With rhythmic – almost hypnotic – movement, the unwanted hairs are secured in the thread and lifted from the follicle with precision and finesse.
Then, you will move your hand in an upward motion to pluck the unwanted hair out of your eyebrows. You will just put some aloe vera after threading to maintain the beauty of it. Also, it can heal some tiny wounds and cuts when you don’t do it well. Just try to do it and be careful!
Of course, we only want to perform the fastest way to maintain our eyebrows right, so how long does this method take?
Actually, if you are skilled enough to perform it by yourself, a simple eyebrow threading will take 5 to 7 minutes of your time. Fast right? But when you are not skilled and still practicing, you will usually take 15 to 20 minutes. Of course, you want your brows to be beautiful. When you thread your lip, it takes only 3 minutes. Full-Face threading will take 15 to 20 minutes.
The main question, HOW DOES THIS PROCESS LAST?
Well, there is a factor to consider in concluding how does eyebrow threading last. Your hair type and area of the face! Yes, hair type has a big role in this process. The full re-growth of the hairs can be between 2 to 6 weeks onwards. Between this span of time, your hair will start to grow back sparse. It will be finer after repeating the threading process because hair is pulled out at the root, which gets weakened.
Since hairs are being removed from the root they actually tend to grow back finer over time not as you thought it will be thicker. As soon as the hair grows just above the skin, you can get re-threaded. Unlike waxing wherein the hair needs to be at least 2/8” long before it can be removed again from your skin.
Threading causes less discomfort compared to waxing. It keeps skin irritation to a minimum count because it only targets individual hairs. Waxing can pull on your skin, threading doesn’t. Also in threading, there is NO EXPOSURE TO IRRITANTS.
What should I do to prepare for threading?
Let your hair grow just above the skin and you’re ready. If you want a new or different shape to your brows, let them grow a bit more but do not tweeze them so our threading expert can see their natural shape before suggesting the best shape for your face.
Top Tips For Perfect Eyebrow Threading
- What is the shape of your face
The shape of your face should dictate the shape of your eyebrows. It is important to match the shape of your face to the shape of your eyebrows to make it more appealing and nice to look at.
- Keep away from eye make-up
If you’re one of those who is likely to tear-up, keep the mascara and eyeliner away on the day of the threading. It can alter the threading process.
- Thread after a warm bath or shower
The heat softens the hair, making it easier to pull out. This is also a trick to lessen the pain you will feel while threading.
- Draw the outline you want with an eyebrow pencil
This gives you a guideline to work with if you’re threading your eyebrows yourself. This can make you easily thread your brows because it serves as a guide.
- Comb your eyebrow
Take a brow brush and comb your eyebrow upwards. This brings out its proper shape and can easily identify the unwanted hair to be threaded.
- Avoid catching the skin between the threads
If you’re threading by yourself at home, prevent the painful catching of the skin between threads by letting the thread hover slightly above the skin’s surface. Always perform it in a calm way to get the best results.
