Bringing brows in-house.
Brows have long been a big buzzword in beauty, but ever since Cara Delevingne made groomed brows the feature of our generation, a whole extra step has been added to our ongoing beauty maintenance. Sigh.
Add with this ever-increasing number of salon visits, manicure appointments and high-tech facials, it can sometimes seem impossible to get to the next appointment before something has grown out or grown back.
We've tapped up the Tweezerman Beauty Experts to find out exactly how to take your eyebrow threading in-house with a simple step-by-step guide to threading your brows at home. You can thank us later.
Prep skin by removing all makeup and clean with a wash-off cleanser. Hold a warm washcloth to the treatment area to open up the pores - this will make the threading less painful so it's worth doing.
Take your piece of thread and tie it to form a loop, to create a large circle. Hold one end of the circle with your thumb and forefinger, letting the other end hang between your other thumb and forefinger.
Twist the circle around 10 times so there's eventually a twisted section in the middle. If you're doing it right, it should look a bit like an hourglass.
Practice the threading motion by opening one hand with your thumb and finger inside the circle, then close the other hand. This twisting action is what will remove the hairs.
Still can't do it?
It’s much easier to use a device specifically created in the place of at-home threading. The threading process can be complex and hard to grasp and therapists usually undergo a lot of training to be able to do it. Using a tool makes the whole process much smoother - literally.
