Should I tweeze, wax, or thread my brows?
Hands down, tweezing is the preferred method by Eyebrow experts everywhere for one simple reason: it allows for the most detailed and accurate brow shaping, leading to the most beautiful and perfect results possible. Tweezing doesn’t harm the skin and there’s little risk of major errors since each hair is taken individually and it’s also the only method that can easily be done at home when you notice stray hairs popping up, which can let you go longer between appointments.
Tweezing can be slightly painful, if at all, depending on personal tolerance. Although a skilled and experienced artist can work quickly, pulling each hair individually takes some more time and costs a bit more. But since the results will be the focal point of your face for weeks, most people find it well worth the effort.
Removing hair with wax is done with various types of hard or soft waxes that are either applied cold or hot to the skin. Hard wax is heated and applied to the brow hairs and then pulled off once it has hardened, while soft wax is also applied warm but removed with a strip of muslin.
Waxing can be appropriate for people with dense or coarse hair or for people who need a larger amount of hair removed. Waxing is also a good option for teenage girls who are new to brow grooming and timid about the pain of tweezing. It’s also frequently used by men looking to tame their uni-brows.
Businesses prefer waxing because it’s fast and profitable.
Waxing is not recommended for people with rosacea or those using Retin-A or other anti-aging products or anti-acne prescriptions. Always be sure to inform your aesthetician if you are using any of these before opting for waxing*.
Waxing can cause or aggravate breakouts and though it is a brief process, waxing provides the least amount of control and precision of the three methods and can also cause the most discomfort.
Hair needs to be a certain length for the wax to take hold, so time between treatments may be longer – meaning more noticeable growth between treatments.
Finally, since the wax also adheres to the skin, the pulling from repeated waxing over time may lead to prematurely sagging skin and hyperpigmentation.
The Middle Eastern practice of threading, which has become very popular in the States over the last few years, is the method of wrapping two pieces of thread around hair and pulling from the root.
Like tweezing, this is a chemical free process, which is beneficial to those who are sensitive to wax, have very dry skin, or use products like Retin-A and other anti-aging products. Redness of the areas treated tends to disappear in a short amount of time. The process can be done very quickly.
This technique can be done in a short amount of time but this means mistakes can occur just as fast. As we age, those mistakes take longer to grow back (if at all). Or the other end of the spectrum, if an inexperienced professional performs this technique incorrectly, brow hairs can break resulting in quicker hair re-growth and more visits. Depending on a person’s sensitivity and the skill of the person performing the technique, it can be somewhat painful and leave skin feeling a little tender. The sharp thread can even lead to minor cuts if not done properly.
