Threading is a method of hair removal originating in Iran, India and Central Asia. In more recent times it has gained popularity in Western countries, especially with a cosmetic application.

Is eyebrow threading painful?

Yes and no, according to Tummala. It’s been found to be less painful than waxing, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to feel anything. With waxing, pain usually stems from the tugging, pulling, and stretching of the skin. Threading differs as it targets the hair follicle and leaves the skin in place.

How often should you get eyebrows threaded?
To ensure your brows are always in shape, go by the following:
  • Shaping: Every 3-4 weeks
  • Tweezing: Pluck regrowth every 2 or 3 days to keep things tidy/maintain shape.
  • Threading/Waxing: Every 3-4 weeks.
  • Trimming: Once a month.
  • Tinting: Ever 4-6 weeks, depending on how fast your brows grow.
