These days, spas and salons offer numerous methods to achieve and maintain your perfect eyebrow shape and style. The most popular options include threading, microblading, plucking, waxing, and tinting. Continue reading to learn more about the differences between each of these beauty services, as well as the unique advantages they all offer.
Threading has become increasingly popular in North America over recent years. Similar to shaving with a razor, threading only removes hair that is growing above the skin—this ensures that the skin is not damaged during the procedure. Threading must be done every month to maintain the desired look. Since only a twisted cotton thread is needed, this method is environmentally friendly, and also avoids the usage of harsh chemicals found in other brow removal options. If you are looking for a more shapely eyebrow arch, a thread brow lift can also be incorporated into your eyebrow routine alongside threading.
Are you looking to add more volume and dimension to your eyebrows? Microblading is a process where tiny, semi-permanent eyebrow hairs are tattooed onto your skin using a special tool. This procedure can be pricey but only needs to be done once a year since it lasts for such a long time.
Best for stray hair removal, plucking is done using a pair of tweezers. This tends to be the most popular brow removal method for those who do not want to go to a salon and are looking for a low-maintenance brow removal process they can do at home. Many beauticians will use this method if they only need to remove a few hairs from their client's eyebrows.
Waxing can be expensive but lasts a long time since the eyebrow hairs are completely removed from the follicle. This method is done by applying hot wax strategically onto the eyebrow area. After some time, the wax is ready to be pulled off and the desired hairs are completely removed with it. If you are on a time crunch, waxing may be your best bet since it only takes about 15 minutes or so to do.
A painless option for brow enhancement is tinting. Tinting uses hair dye that matches the eyebrow color you are looking for. The dye is applied to the brow and removed after about 10 minutes. Tinting adds natural fullness and makes light-colored eyebrow hairs stand out. Results last for about a month. Contact someone like Desert Bloom Skin Care in your area.
