Waxing, Tweezing, or Threading Your Eyebrows: Which Is Best For You?

Eyebrows are one of the most important features on your face so proper upkeep is essential, but which method is best, waxing, threading, or tweezing. These are great options and some techniques work better for some and not others. I have put together an overview of each method so you can decide which is best for you…


If you have thicker hair that grows back quickly, waxing is the best option for you. Not only do people see thinner, softer regrowth, they can also go longer in between waxes since the results can last for a few weeks. The down side to waxing is possible skin irritation and makeup will not adhere to your skin right after waxing.


Threading uses a string to remove hair and is a great option for those of you with sensitive skin. While waxing tugs at the skin, threading barely has any contact with your skin so it doesn’t lead to irritation. Also, threading doesn’t remove the top layer of skin like waxing does so your makeup will adhere to your skin after threading and it won’t lead to irritation.


Tweezing gives you a lot more control and it’s also the most inexpensive way to maintain your brows. The most important thing to remember when tweezing your brows is to exercise restraint. You may want to tweeze regrowth every day, but be careful not to take it too far.

There was a time when I preferred getting my eyebrows threaded. I find that threading is precise and great for my sensitive skin, however, for the last three years, I have been tweezing my own eyebrows and I really like caring for my own brows, but the best recommendation I can make to you is to experiment with all three methods to see what works best for you and until next week, be happy, healthy, and beautiful.
