Threading is a technique of hair removal using twisted lengths of cotton to uproot your fuzz; it’s actually quite simple and has the benefit of removing your hairs in straight rows for really accurate shaping. Your therapist will hold the thread against your skin and use a scissoring action to catch the hairs in the twist and pull them out by the root.
It’s particularly good for small areas like the eyebrows or moustache area, but can be used in almost any area where you’re a bit furrier than you'd like to be. It’s also great for sensitive skin because while waxing can pull off the top layer of skin, threading is not as aggressive and doesn’t stick to your skin in the same way.
Waxing is one of the most popular hair removal treatments, targeting areas such as the legs, underarms and bikini line. Not for the overly sensitive, a waxing session may make you wince – but trust us, that super smooth skin will be worth it.
Your therapist will use a spatula to apply the wax to your skin, spreading it evenly over the area to be treated.
They will then smooth on a paper or cloth waxing strip, before quickly pulling it off again, taking the hair with it. Therapists use different waxes depending on the requirements of the treatment. Hot wax is great for removing strong, thick hair, while cool wax and sugaring paste tend to better for use on sensitive skin.
Is waxing for me?
Whether you are looking to de-fuzz your legs, bikini line, underarms, back, chest or any other part of your body, waxing is an efficient solution. Kinder on the skin than shaving, there’ll be no stubble rash, and the results will last for longer – so you don’t have to be constantly worrying about that wretched regrowth.
