Whether you find yourself on the side of threading or eyebrow waxing, each one will help you clean up an unruly brow. Until recently, other than tweezing, waxing was really the only option for cleaning and shaping up your eyebrows. That has certainly changed and evolved in the last decade.

Threading

Threading has become extremely popular, popping up in malls and small boutique stores all over the country. It involves taking a piece of cotton thread and wrapping it around unwanted hairs to remove them.< here are pros and cons for both services. Let's take a look at each.

Threading Pros

  • Threading is a better alternative if you have sensitive skin, such as using Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's) or Retin-A.
  • Threading is fast and inexpensive.

Threading Cons

  • Threading does not require a license.
  • If done incorrectly, the hairs will break.
  • There is some discomfort.

Waxing

Waxing has been in Western salons and spas for decades and it is one of the most common ways to remove unwanted eyebrow hair. Eyebrow waxing is usually done by applying a soft wax with a wooden stick to your brows then removing it with a special fabric or paper.

Waxing Pros

  • Your skin won't be pinched during the waxing process.
  • Waxing can be used on other parts of your body, not just your eyebrows.
  • The hairs grow back softer.

Waxing Cons

  • Eyebrow waxing can cause redness and irritation to sensitive skin.
  • You need to avoid major sun exposure after waxing.
So there you have it, eyebrow threading vs. eyebrow waxing. Choosing one or the other is a personal preference mostly determine by the skill level of the aesthetician and your skin's unique response to the process. And, should you decide to choose neither, tweezers are always there for a great option.
