A great choice for a more natural, defined shape, threading is extremely accurate and can be done in as little as 20 minutes. It’s also a better option for sensitive skin, and has long lasting effects of up to 3 weeks.

is threading painful?

As with any hair removal treatment there can be some discomfort, the levels of which are different for everyone. But our customers have found threading to be virtually pain free.

what are the benefits?

Threading is much more precise and gives a more perfect arch to your brow. Unlike tweezing which can break hairs, threading removes the whole follicle, for a longer lasting look. The more you use threading for hair removal, the longer the results will last.

TIPS FOR TINTING AFTERCARE

1. Although make up is not needed with tinting, if you want to put any on, avoid doing so for at least 24 hours after your appointment.

2. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes/brows – the less you touch them the longer the treatment will last.

3. Don’t get your face wet for 24 hours after your appointment. You should avoid using strong soaps and face washes or oily moisturizers around the tinted area for a longer lasting effect.

4. No swimming, sauna, or sun bed for 24 hours after your tinting. These activities can fade the tint, and prevent it from lasting as lon.

WAXING (ladies only)

WHY WAXING?

Avoid the imperfections of cuts and nicks from razors and get a satisfyingly silky smooth finish that lasts up to 3 weeks. Hair should be around 1/4 inch long before your appointment, and with regular waxing you can take shaving out of the equation for good. That’s great news for your skin, and your schedule.

WHAT CAN I DO TO MINIMIZE THE PAIN?

As with all hair removal, waxing can cause some discomfort. If you’re worried about pain, you can take an aspirin or ibuprofen 30-45 minutes before your appointment. Avoid sunbathing, tanning and any kind of peels at least 24 hours before you get waxed, and talk to your technician if you’re taking any medication that could make your skin a little more sensitive than usual.

tips for waxing aftercare

1. Don’t use any perfumed products for a couple of days after your wax.

2. Wear light, loose clothing to avoid irritation and in-grown hairs straight after your appointment.

3. If you’re still tender after 24 hours, you can try a little rosewater to soothe the area.
