Zia Threading’s trained staff removes unwanted hair from faces and brows via speedy threading services that employ ancient depilatory techniques. Armed with nimble fingers and sharp eyes, de-fuzzers trap each individual strand in a precisely twisted web of cotton thread. With a gentle lifting motion, the errant hair leaves its follicle and leaves behind sculpted eyebrow arches or stubble-free visages. The skin’s topmost layer remains largely unharmed as the strings wrap around the hair itself, eliminating much of the pain inherent in hair-removal techniques such as tweezing, waxing, or piloting a miniature mower. With regular treatments, hair grows back both finer and sparser.
