A Chat with DAVIS ISLAND BEAUTY SALON & SPA AND BARBER SHOP
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Technique: In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Origin: Most people believe threading originated in India over 6000 years ago and spread throughout Asia, the Middle East and in recent times Europe.
What do you love most about your job?
Advantages cited for eyebrow threading, as opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is more gentle on the skin. It can be painful as several hairs are removed at once: however this can be minimized if it is done professionally.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The girls I use are from India and Pakistan. Also, since I'm more mature, they hold my eye skin tight while they perform the threading. There is no pain this way, they follow up with aloe gel, and it's very inexpensive. I've been in a lot more pain from waxing and tweezing any day.
