Threading is the process of spinning thread over hair, causing the hair to wrap around the string, subsequently pulling the hair out from the root. Waxing uses a thin layer of wax to trap the hair. The wax is then pulled off the skin and in turn pulls the hair out with it. With both options, when done properly, there is very minimal disruption to the skin. Discussing the options further with your brow artist will allow you to be able to decide what technique works best for you.

A brow design is an in-depth brow shaping service for first time clients. A brow maintenance appointment is the way that you keep your brows looking perfect, always. Your first appointment will generally be a brow design and each appointment after that would be a maintenance appointment.

Ideally you would let them grow for a minimum of two weeks. This means ZERO tweezing during this time.

A brow tint darkens the brow hair, even the baby fine ones. This gives the brows a full and more defined look.

The short answer is no.

It depends on who you ask. Most clients experience some discomfort, but it tends to be minor. We also use topical anesthetic to help alleviate this pain
