Frequently Asked Questions
What is threading?
Threading is the fastest-growing alternative to facial waxing or depilatory creams. By twisting antibacterial cotton thread and pulling it along the skin’s surface, unwanted hair can be removed directly from the follicle.
Do I need an appointment?
Threading services are walk-in only. For facials, waxing, tinting, and lashes, we accept walk-ins but give preference to appointments.
What’s better: Threading or waxing?
Threading is more gentle on skin than waxing. Because waxing can remove the top layer of skin, we don’t recommend waxing for those with sensitive skin or who are using topical acne or anti-aging products. Additionally, threading can achieve a more precise brow shape than waxing can.
What lasts longer: Threading or waxing?
Both threading and waxing typically last for 2-6 weeks, depending on your re-growth rate.
Does threading hurt?
Threading is approximately as painful as waxing.
Can threading cause skin problems?
Because it’s so gentle on skin, the possibility of threading causing adverse reactions is very low (and much lower than with waxing). Most clients’ skin will be slightly red after threading. The redness goes away, typically, within 30 minutes.
What’s the difference between a bikini, french bikini, and brazilian wax?
Bikini waxing removes hair outside panty line. French bikini waxing goes a bit beyond the panty line and usually leaves leaves a “landing strip”. Brazilian waxing removes all hair from the front and back of the pubic area.
