Eyebrow threading, an ancient form of hair removal in the Middle East, is becoming more and more popular in Boston. If you can’t stand the thought of waxing or have no time to tweeze each individual hair from your brows, threading might be a good alternative for you to try. Unlike plucking, a specially designed cotton thread is rolled across the eyebrow, pulling up entire sections of hair at once, from right at the follicle level. While it may be a simple form of hair removal, going to the right salon makes all the difference when getting your eyebrows threaded. Check out where to go in Boston to find the best eyebrow threaders in the city.
