If you’re asking this question, you’re probably new to eyebrow threading – but have no worry, we’ll explain it all down for you.

Does Eyebrow Threading Hurt?

Threading the brows is an old Indian hair removal method that we at Ziba Beauty swear by, and it just requires a piece of cotton thread! The thread is wrapped around the Brow Artist’s fingers and dragged along regions of undesirable hair in order to capture the brow hairs directly from the follicle root. It’s all-natural and chemical-free, which is always beneficial for your skin.

Thus, does it cause pain? True and false.

There will always be some discomfort associated with hair removal techniques; threading, on the other hand, is the least unpleasant. This is because the hair is taken from the root, but with brow waxing, you experience the agony of the hair being pulled out in addition to the discomfort of the skin being yanked and the application of sticky wax on sensitive areas of your skin, which does not assist.

If you’ve ever tweezed your brows (and let’s face it, we’ve all done it at some point), the sensation of threading is comparable to plucking five hairs simultaneously. It may cause some discomfort, but it also subsides rapidly.

Additionally, discomfort is dependent on the individual’s sensitivity and the region being threaded. For instance, people report that threading the top of their forehead is significantly less uncomfortable than threading the bottom of their brow. Fortunately, there is a technique to alleviate the discomfort! When threading the underside of your brow, your Brow Artist will demonstrate how to close your eyelid and stretch your skin with your fingers – a short piece of advice we have is to grip your skin tightly since the tighter you pull, the less painful threading is.

So why do people’s eyes wet if it’s not so painful?

Our bodies have pre-programmed natural responses for specific conditions. Therefore, if you ever witness someone cry during their service, it is less probable that they are in discomfort and more likely that their body is responding to the sensitive skin regions being threaded. Individuals who experience no pain while having their eyebrows threaded have also been known to cry – this is simply the body’s way of communicating that something is wrong and that they should be aware of it.

If threading causes even a slight amount of discomfort, why do individuals continue to choose for it?

This is an excellent question, and the most appropriate response is RESULTS. Individuals continue to get their brows and other facial hair threaded because the results far exceed any discomfort.

The advantages of threading over other hair removal procedures are numerous and may be summarized as follows:

  • It is devoid of chemicals.
  • There are no liquids or harsh chemicals applied on the skin.
  • It’s quick — an expert artist can do the task in seven to ten minutes.
  • The effects are more long-lasting.
  • Shape the brows is far easier and more accurate than any other method of brow shaping.
  • Threading can remove even the tiniest hairs, but waxing requires you to wait for the hair to reach a specific length before it can be removed.
  • The skin is not pulled or stretched by the wax, which helps prevent early wrinkles and scars.
  • Because the hair is being extracted directly from the follicle, your skin remains intact.
  • Threading is a procedure that may be performed on any area of the face!

AND the best reason of all – whatever discomfort or agony you experience the first time you are threaded will gradually subside with subsequent visits to Ziba. You will gradually become accustomed to the sensation of threading, and some individuals even like it as a form of massage. Additionally, even after a single threading session, the discomfort you experience will subside as your brow artist works their magic, as your body becomes accustomed to the sensation.

Are you still a bit apprehensive? Be not! The Ziba Brow Artists are highly educated and qualified to take care of your brows. We urge you to communicate your concerns to your artist if you’re concerned about having your brows threaded, and be assured that they’ll do everything necessary to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you.

Wait, there’s more; if you’re still uncertain, or if you have a friend or adolescent at home who wants their brows done but is afraid they’ll hurt, we offer a service tailored just for you and them called The Virgin Brow.

The Virgin Brow is a consulting and transformative service designed for first-time eyebrow shapers. It begins with a comprehensive consultation, which includes facial measurements, and ends with Ziba’s Signature Finish.

Three brow appointments are included in the package, which is ideal for apprehensive first-timers since it allows the Brow Artist to spend more time explaining threading to the client. Additionally, the client gets three services to acclimate to the sensation of threading; for instance, the first service may focus on the top of the brow, while the second service would focus on the bottom. By the time the customer reaches the last service, they will be significantly more relaxed and have had time:

  • to acclimate to the sensation,
  • to become acquainted with their brow artist
  • AND to determine their optimum brow shape and the time required for eyebrow hair to develop between treatments.

For $49, it’s a no-brainer — all you have to do is phone your nearest Ziba Studio and schedule an appointment!

If you like to observe threading in action prior to scheduling an appointment, you are free to visit any of our Studios. Additionally, we can assist you in speaking with other customers about their own experiences. Naturally, our team and artists will be on hand to answer any questions you may have!

Hopefully, this blog post has answered your questions about Eyebrow Threading. To summarize: Is threading painful? A tiny bit. However, it is less expensive than other choices and is completely worth it for the results obtained. A few minutes of pain in exchange for weeks of gorgeous brows and no chemicals on the skin… no contest.
