Eyebrows on Fleek: Threading 101

In today’s society, having your eyebrows be on fleek is a critical step towards social acceptance. I’m a firm believer that with nice skin and nice eyebrows, you never really need to wear makeup. Eyebrows truly do shape the face and add so much more dimension and complexity to your appearance. I honestly feel like I’m a different person every time I get mine done.

 

What is threading?

Threading, my preferred method of eyebrow shaping, dates back to ancient times in Asia. As the name implies, threading uses a thin thread that is twisted and rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair out along with the follicle. In my opinion, its more precise and gentle on the skin than waxing (especially if you have thick eyebrow hairs like me).

Does It Hurt?

Yes. But you’ll get used to it. Beauty is pain, so get over it.

 

Before: UGLY!!! I look tired and dirty. Just not myself. Definitely overdue for a threading appointment!!!

During: When you sit down, you have to tell them EXACTLY what you want. I say I want just a clean up, keep it long, thick, and natural, with a slight arch. They’ll ask you to hold your eyebrow aka hold the skin tight so they can get all the hair.

AFTER: A whole new person! Notice the difference now? Everything is clean and precise and my overall appearance looks better!

Tips and Advice: There is no kind of trust stronger than that between you and the person who does your eyebrows. It is so so SO important to do your research ahead of time to find the perfect place and person. Before I go to any new eyebrow place I search Yelp for days until I come across a place with at least 4 stars and the name of a highly rated threader.
