Hair Removal

We offer threading and waxing techniques

Threading is a method of hair removal which uses thread to twist around each hair to be removed, and pull it completely from the follicle. The method is said to have originated in Turkey or Iran, and is still popular in the middle east and India today. 

Results of threading last just as long as waxing, and it costs the same. Of course, like anything else, threading has it's pros and cons.

Reasons people often choose threading over waxing.

  • Waxing has the potential to burn the skin, leaving blisters and possibly scars.
  • Wax residue, or occasionally the products used to remove the wax residue, can sometimes cause skin irritations (tiny bumps that often look like acne) Since threading requires no products, it is less likely that the skin can become inflamed.
  • Unlike waxing, threading does not have the possibility of lifting, tearing, or over-exfoliating the skin.
  • Many are convinced that threading is more precise, and can achieve a better shape.
  • Often, clients have reported that their skin appears less red immediately after threading (compared to immediately after waxing) and the redness typically seems to subside more quickly.

Reasons people stick with waxing:

  • Threading takes longer than waxing. Not much longer, but because the hairs are removed more gradually (instead of a few quick pulls) many feel it hurts more than waxing. 
  • Rolling the thread against the skin, does create friction, and occasionally with slack skin, pinching can occur. 
  • Just like when you take time to tweeze your eyebrows at home, your eyes may water, and you may wind up sneezing.
