Waxing eyebrows at home vs threading

Nothing can improve the appearance of a woman, other than perfectly defined brows. Although brow trends may change often, shaping brows and having a clean face is expected out of every woman who wishes to look good.  In the olden days, the practice of shaping brows used to be a private affair when women would prefer waxing eyebrows at home rather than at a salon, but now most women are dashing over to eyebrow studios to allow brow technicians to design and maintain well shaped and well-groomed eyebrows.

Threading is an ancient technique using twisted cotton threads that sweep across your face, pulling out the hair from the follicles without damaging them causing less pain. It is quick and meticulous as threading pulls out the tiniest hairs from under the brow.

Pros :

  1. Threading is fast since all the hairs are removed at the same time including the shortest of hairs and in-growths to give a clean and smooth looking brow. Plus you don’t have to wait weeks for hair to grow out completely.
  2. Eyebrow Threading is affordable and lasts for about 3 to 6 weeks, depending on the speed of your hair growth and is highly preferred over waxing eyebrows at home. 
  3. It is not as painful as other methods, and there are no side effects, such as breakouts, redness or rashes since no chemicals are used.


  1. You may experience watery eyes due to the quick pulling of the hair from the root.
