Threading & Hot Wax
The origin of threading is unknown but it is believed to have started around Central Asia or India but now is commonly practised in the Western World too.
The threading technique is created by doubling up a strand of thread (usually cotton) and twisting between the therapist’s hands. It is then rolled over the required area to remove the hair.
It is quicker than plucking as it can remove a line of hair at once and there is more control than waxing, therefore creating a defined and precise shape, which can create better definition.
Threading removes the hair from the follicle, creating a long lasting result. It can also be used to remove very short hairs.
Threading is entirely natural, as it is just a strand of cotton. We finish off the treatment with our calming rose and camellia nourishing facial moisturiser. However, redness is often less than that after waxing. Threading is recommended for all areas of the face.

Hot wax works at a slightly higher temperature than traditional wax and is therefore great at getting short and stubborn hairs out, it also doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
Hot wax has a slightly thicker consistency and is applied direct to the skin where it cools. Once set it is then pulled off the skin with a fast movement.
Hot wax grips the hair, rather than the skin, so clients’ often cite that it is less painful.
Hot wax works well on small areas or patches of coarse hair and is usually used on the face, underarms and bikini area. It is not advised to be used on large areas such as legs or arms due to the length of time it would take.
