Heyyyyy! So I hope I made this as simple as possible for you guys to be able to do this at home! Let me know via twitter (@carolinaswan92) if you tried this and succeeded...orr failed haha as well as down in the comments.
As always, thank you SOO much for all your support!! If you have any other video requests leave them down in the comments!!
Disclaimer: I am not a professional, my advice isn't FACTUAL. It's advice and I'm just wanting to give you an idea on how I thread my own brows. I hope you all learn something! I know some of you commented that I talked "too much" and I understand that. I was just trying to be as informative as possible, keeping in mind those who searched for a video like this had NO idea on how to thread :)
Does it hurt?
Yes, the first time it was a little painful because vs tweezing, multiple brow hairs are being pulled at once. Your pain tolerance does get higher ! I promise it's worth it!
Is the tape necessary?
It really just makes the skin tighter so that you are less likely to pinch yourself with the thread. And be VERY careful when using it. Fast forward two years later....I don't even use it anymore. If I ever thread anyone's brows, I just make them hold their skin tight so that I can have a more precision. They only "pull" their skin tight for a few seconds!
The tape was helpful because I was threading on my OWN brows, but with practice you won't need it :)
How long does it last?
I touch mine up once a week because my brows are suuuuuper full, but if you're not hairy like me, I'd say 2-3 weeks.
What kind of thread do you use?
I just use any thread that's cotton. Nothing too thick because then it won't pick up any of the fine hairs.
Waxing causes wrinkles?:
I didn't mean to say that it DOES, I should have explained myself better. I started waxing my brows in middle school and by high school I noticed my brow bone area was droopier and I noticed crepe-yness that wasn't there before waxing. So in my personal experience, YES I saw waxing doing minor damage. I do believe if waxing is done correctly, you should be fine. But I guess I should have better explained why I switched to threading. I didn't mean to offend anyone who performs waxing, anyone who currently waxes so please don't take my options and thoughts as FACTS. Lol ;)
