Threading for men!
The main advantage of threading that differs from other hair removal techniques is its precision. Waxing and plucking can often leave unwanted hair around the eyebrows, but a threading specialist threads through your hair row by row, which gives your eyebrows a cleaner and a more defined shape. Threading only removes hair and not the skin and because it is so precise it can remove hair that are finer than those that can be removed by waxing or plucking. The hair is pulled from the root and leaves a soft and smooth surface. The result is more durable than for example shaving.
When threading regularly, it stops the straw to partially grow and the re-growth will be slower. For a man with unwanted hair on the face or other parts of the body threading works excellent and frequent visits will result in hair growing softer.
Threading for women!
Threading on the face area not only takes away the fluff or hair growth but also stimulates blood circulation on the face. Threading acts as an exfoliator and has a rejuvenating effect, which makes you get fewer wrinkles. It also makes your make-up stick better and you will get a better and more even tan.
Unlike shaving that gives coarser hair, waxing which pulls small vessels of the skin and tweezers where single hairs pulled out, with threading the wire can pull off a whole series of hair resulting in a smoother line. There is also a milder version of the waxing. The finished product is also less irritating and better looking than waxing.
Threading sessions is also very fast and usually takes about 15 minutes of your time, and sometimes even less. It is also relatively inexpensive. Different practitioners have different prices, but it costs about the same as plucking and waxing.
