Perfect eyebrows are a popular goal in the beauty realm nowadays. One of the most difficult decisions when it is time for an eyebrow clean up is whether waxing or threading is best. While both techniques end with almost the exact same result, the process themselves are very different. Watch this quick video to see what brow shaping method people most AHN girls prefer, and to find out whether waxing or threading is the most effective.


With waxing being the most common hair removal method, this is normally what most people move towards when needing a shaping. When waxing, a brow specialist will apply a, normally hypoallergenic wax to the skin. Just before the wax dries, a piece of a special type of paper is applied on top of the wax. The paper is then ripped off, removing the wax and the brow hairs it has attached to.


Threading lately has become a more popular hair removal technique, mostly for people with sensitive skin or people with coarser hair. Unlike waxing, nothing is applied to the skin. The brow specialist will spin two pieces of thread together creating a grip around each brow hair. Next, each brow hair is plucked out one by one, creating quick and precise removal of the hair.
