Some people are blessed with beautiful eyebrows and some people know how exactly how to groom theirs, but many of us are better off with professional help in shaping gorgeous brows.  Threading is a traditional Indian method of hair removal that uses the technique of capturing unwanted hair between two threads and then removing the hair in a twisting, plucking action. The main benefit of threading over other facial hair removal techniques is its precision.  Eyebrow threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of your eyebrows, or add beautiful shape and definition to your brows.

Whatever the season, there is no doubt that having lovely smooth legs is a great confidence booster.  A regular professional waxing session is considered to be one of the best ways to get rid of unwanted body hair – great for maintaining silky-smooth legs.  Here are three little known ways in which waxing is beneficial: 

 

  1. waxing has an exfoliating effect on skin which is why you may notice your skin is smoother and softer after a waxing session;
  2. in contrast to hair removal creams and shaving gels, the wax that is generally used for body waxing does not contain ingredients that can cause skin irritation or allergies; and

 If you have blonde or lighter lashes, or you want to accentuate your eyes but don’t want to wear false eyelashes or apply extensions, then eyelash tinting will change your life.  A professional eyelash tint will give you weeks of dark, full lashes without necessarily even having to apply mascara. Your eyelash tint will last for about as long as it takes for your lashes to reach the end of a natural growth cycle—typically about 4 to 6 weeks and you don’t have to worry about the tint washing out.

We all have facial hair to some extent, including hair on our upper lip. Some women may prefer to remove this facial hair. Threading is an excellent method for removing unwanted hair from an upper lip as it removes the finest and smallest hairs and in the hands of a professional will not leave the lip area as swollen or red as other hair removal techniques. With threading, there is little contact with the skin so there is no skin damage and it gives an excellent smooth result that lasts for about 2 to 4 weeks.

Follow this professional guide for the best, most trouble free post waxing experience:

 

  • Wear loose-fitting clothing to your waxing appointment to avoid friction and irritation.
  • If you’re having a Brazilian or bikini wax bring a fresh pair of cotton underwear to change into after your appointment. After waxing your pores are exposed and can be vulnerable to germs. A clean pair of briefs will protect you against germs.
  • Exfoliation is an effective way to prevent ingrown hairs after waxing. After at least 24 hours have passed you can lightly exfoliate the skin that has been waxed to removes dead skin cells that could potentially clog pores and help lift the hairs away from the skin.
  • Wait at least 48 hours before going into the sun, taking a sauna or doing hot yoga as bacteria thrive in warm and wet places.
