We’ve already looked at all the benefits of threading, but what about waxing your eyebrows? Waxing is a super popular practice among beauticians all over, simply because of its ease and time saving methods. With waxing, you can get the perfect eyebrow shape with two pulls of the waxing paper. But tweezing is also a popular method as well. So, which method of eyebrow hair removal is best for you? Let’s take a look!
What Is Waxing? There are several different types of waxing, such as strip waxing (also known as soft wax) and strip-less waxing (also known as hard wax.) Soft wax is the method that uses strips of paper that adheres to your skin. Hard wax is when wax is directly applied to your skin and allowed to harden. Hard wax is generally less painful and better for those with sensitive skin.
The Pros to Waxing: Waxing is perfect for getting all those hairs gone – you don’t have to worry about stragglers. It’s a clean removal of hair that’s both quick and easy. Also, unlike tweezing, you don’t have to wax every day; in fact, you can go as long as a week or two without having to wax again. For those who want a quick, easy, and affective method of hair removal, than waxing is probably your go-to method.
The Cons to Waxing: Waxing is painful and irritating because of the wax actually adhering to your skin. A lot of people who wax for the first time experience red bumps, sensitivity, and even allergic reactions. The worst part about waxing is if you’re not careful, than you can actually remove more hair than you want – say, half of or your entire eyebrow…
Waxing Verses Threading: Which One is Best for You: Now that we’ve taken a gander at all the ins and outs of waxing, you can decide what method is best for you. As a review, waxing is an ancient practice used by Egyptian women back in 60 B.C. It’s also incredibly time saving, easy, and effective. The downsides to waxing are it hurts, can lead to irritation and even an allergic reaction. If you want to remove as many hairs as you can all at once, than waxing is probably the best method for you. The more you wax, the more you get used to it, and the more you’ll love it!
