6 Things No One Ever Told You About Eyebrow Threading

Posted by with No Comments

The first time I tried threading, it was only because there weren’t any other options available. I was at the Glamour offices for a photo shoot (of my actual and very unkempt brows, no less) and while I’d waxed and tweezed my eyebrows in the past, my current M.O. was not doing anything at all. Still, my brows had to be polished (read: completely overhauled), so I submitted. It was either that or have a photo of me circulating around the internet, resembling a girl version of Peter Gallagher, otherwise known as dad-hunk Sandy Cohen from The O.C. (in case your memory needs some refreshing).

I was terrified. Threading had always seemed like the most sadistic hair removal option available, although that’s a tough race to win once you throw in plucking individual hairs and tearing wax off skin. The technique, which has been the primary mode of hair removal in Asia for centuries, consists of rolling twisted cotton thread over the hairs, which unceremoniously rips each follicle right out of its pore. I know, I know: This does not sound like an enjoyable activity, and I have a notoriously low pain threshold. But once I actually felt it for myself—and saw the results in the mirror—I knew I was never going back. Fun? Not exactly. But worth it? Absolutely.

It Doesn’t Hurt That Much—Really

This is the biggest factor that holds many back from threading, says Sabah Feroz, brow expert at blinkbrowbar in NYC. “Our clients tend to describe threading to be an unusual sensation but not painful,” she adds. If you’re super-nervous, you can ask the threading tech to try it on the peach fuzz on the back of your hand first. Once people experience it that way, they’re usually down with doing the brows, she says.

You Get Defined Brows

Threading is, at its core, all about precision. “Even the tiniest hair can be teased out of its follicle,” says Feroz. Because it gets every single hair, no half-grown strays are left behind. Plus, the method of threading allows for total control over which hairs are removed and which aren’t. “You can get really precise with shaping,” explains Marco Ochoa, celebrity brow threader and owner of EcoBrow Studio in Beverly Hills. “You can thread one hair at a time or a line of hair, giving you well-defined brows.”

Maintenance Is Way Easier

Threading is so precise that it can tackle even the tiniest hairs. This means that unlike tweezing, which can’t always grab onto shorter, partly-grown follicles, threading can remove all of your unwanted hairs at once, explained Umbreen Sheikh, owner of NYC’s Wink Brow Bar and the woman who oversaw my own brow shaping. And because of that, they’ll all grow in at the same time, so you’re not whipping out tweezers or stopping in for touch-ups every week. In general, “People like to clean up by tweezing at home after two weeks of threading,” says Ochoa. “I recommend my clients come in after four to five weeks to reshape their eyebrows.”

It’s the Gentlest Form of Hair Removal

Since only the hair is getting yanked—and skin isn’t an incidental casualty—there’s very little chance of irritation. “There’s no pulling or straining the skin,” says Feroz. Threading is so easy on sensitive or irritable (a.k.a. acne-prone) skin types, actually, that blogger and author Aimee Song swears by it.

…But It’s Still Not a Spa Day

While it is the gentlest form of hair removal out there, you’re still removing hair. Since the cotton thread is rubbing against skin, it can cause a little redness and minor irritation on very sensitive skin types. If that sounds like you, just follow up the service with a cooling gel. “A rose water, aloe-vera or tea-tree gel helps to calm the area, soothe the skin, and remove any redness quickly,” Feroz says. Some threading salons offer it gratis post-treatment.

Save It for Facial Hair Only

“Threading is the perfect temporary solution for hair removal of any facial hairs, like the brows,” says Feroz. Because of its precision, though, it’s not a good option for anywhere else on the body—partly because it’ll take forever, and partly because an hour or more of getting your hairs ripped out probably is not something anyone would want to do. “Waxing or laser is much faster and definitely preferred for larger areas,” she notes.

MICROBLADING

Posted by with No Comments

What is Microblading?

The only difference between a semi-permanent tattoo and a permanent one is how deeply the ink is injected into the skin. The deeper you go, the longer it stays. Traditional body tattoos are meant to last, so artists use electromagnetic coil machines to implant the ink deep into the dermis. Semi-permanent brows are expected to fade, so artists use a digital pen or microblading tool to implant ink more superficially into the skin.

In this procedure, you get a manual tattoo made with a dedicated tool that looks like a slender Exacto knife but isn’t a blade at all. Artists arrange tiny needles so they can make small incisions in the skin with the tool’s tip depending on the thickness and depth of hair strokes they want to etch.

Touch up is required, usually four to eight weeks after your first appointment. There are a number of factors that affect how well you retain pigment. (Oily skin doesn’t hold onto ink as well as dry skin; if you’re anemic, your body may use iron oxide in the pigment as a supplement and the tattoos will fade faster) On your second appointment, I might go over original strokes to darken them for a client, tweak the shape, or build up sparse brows by layering thinner strokes in between.

Benefits of Microblading?

  • Frames the face
  • Time saver
  • Creates depth
  • Achieve a darker shade
  • Fills in over plucked brows and gaps
  • Gives you a more youthful appearance
  • Boosts self confidence
  • Enhances facial expressions/emotions

Green in Oxford County and the Beauty Industry

Posted by with No Comments

Allanti Beauty Institute is a Private Career College operating under the Ministry of Training Colleges & Universities. We operate a salon and spa within our school which typically is not environmentally friendly.  We have done everything in our power to create a green environment by offering a colour line Maraes which is totally organic right down to the packaging being biodegradable. We also promote a line of hair care products called Hair pHix which is vegan, gulten FREE. We air dry all our towels. We only use cold water while washing our towels. We conserve energy with our lighting.  We recycle 90% of all waste materials. The property is lined with tall pine trees to assist with the heating and cooling of the school building. We do our best to conserve all energy costs.  By teaching this to our students we are helping the future of Oxford County and the Earth to leave the smallest footprint possible.

The most important project is the use of organic lines of colour and hair care products. This is unheard of in the salon/spa industry.  In the cosmetology world clients are placing harsh chemicals on their bodies which in turn go into their blood stream.  Allanti Beauty is purchasing only the healthiest of products like our Bio Sculpture Gel Nail products made in South Africa, where the products contain no harsh chemicals and the product is porous therefore the nail can breath while the product is on.  We use stainless steel equipment that can be sterilized and reused instead of single use disposable equipment.  All our products are of the highest quality and our service prices are low allowing more clients the benefits of natural healthy products.  We also promote local by promoting a local farmer with natural organic healing creams and products, “From the Meadow” in Belmont Ontario. Over all Allanti Beauty is trying to change the direction of the beauty industry offering healthy organic alternatives to the chemical world of the beauty industry. We are working on curriculum for our school on “How to keep your Environment Green in the Beauty Industry”
