Threading vs Waxing
Women are conscious of their looks and try many methods to look beautiful. Facial hair is disliked by women, and they resort to many techniques to get rid of them. Threading and waxing are two techniques that help in removing hair from the face, and these methods are employed by beauticians in salons all over the world. Both threading and waxing can be used to remove not just facial hair, but hair from all body parts. Both techniques are temporary, in the sense, re-growth of hair takes place after a session of threading or waxing in a few weeks and a woman has to undergo either of the two methods once again. There are basic differences between threading and waxing that are highlighted in this article.
Both threading and waxing are rather simple and inexpensive. Both methods do not take much time either, and a woman can straight away go to work with a confident feeling.
Out of facial hair, the shape of eyebrows is very important for women. When unruly hair grow up on eyebrow, it becomes essential for a woman to go to a beauty parlor for getting the shape of the eyebrow back. Threading is an option that involves using a cotton thread. The beautician holds this thread in her fingers and rows of hair on the eyebrow and pulls hair out of their roots. On the other hand, waxing involves placing a cloth or paper strip containing hot wax on one side. The strip is pulled in a specific direction after placing it on the part of the eyebrow that needs to be plucked. This is done by the beautician in a swift movement causing as little pain as possible to the client. Waxing is a method that works well, and hair does not grow back that quickly as is the case with threading. However, for women with sensitive skin, waxing may not be recommended and threading is the only temporary option available.
Waxing strips for eyebrows act like a stencil as they are cut in many shapes corresponding to eyebrows. A client can have a look at these stencils and choose that she believes can give her face a better look. These stencils carry wax at the edges and when applied on eyebrows remove only that part of the eyebrow that is unwanted. Some pressure needs to be applied on the strips and then it is removed in a swift movement. The method is a little painful and leaves the skin red and a little inflamed, but the symptoms go away in a few hours.
What is the difference between Threading and Waxing?
• Threading gives more liberty as the beautician sees and removes hair using a thread on the face of the client.
• There is no chemical used on the skin, and thus threading is considered to be more hygienic and safe. Threading also is less painful than waxing.
