What are the benefits of Threading?
Threading is a simple, cheap and an efficient way of removing unwanted hair with minimal pain and minimal skin irritation.
Very short hair can be removed and there is little irritation to the area making it possible to go over the area more than once. Hair can be removed individually or in 'lines' to create a perfect shape and can be removed from both above and below the eyebrow giving the threaded eyebrow its characteristic groomed appearance.
A 100% anti-bacterial cotton thread imported from India is used which allows strength but resilience during the technique whilst reducing the risk of infection.
Threading is mainly performed on the face e.g.. upper lip, eyebrows, chin, sides of face, nose, ears, neck and forehead but can be used all over the body.
