Eyebrow Threading at BBs Beauty & Brows

How Eyebrow Threading is done

The most effective way to achieve a perfect shape is to have them done at a BBs Beauty & Brows salon using our tried and tested Eyebrow Threading Techniques. With salons at both Leicester and Peterborough, we’ve got everything to do with eyebrows sorted!

The ancient Middle Eastern & Asian art of eyebrow threading is very popular as every small, short, fine hair is able to be removed thoroughly, giving you long lasting results for up to 3 weeks. Fantastic for a summer getaway, a wedding or just because you can, brow threading can transform your look and give you more time to focus on whatever you fancy.

The twisting motion of a fine cotton thread over the hair lifts and removes the hair from the root, shaping the eyebrow precisely.

Step 1: Determining the Shape of your Eyebrows

Our team of qualified and experienced beauty technicians first determine your individual eyebrow form. By doing so we will determine what shape your eyebrows naturally follow?

Is it round?

Very arched?

Softly arched?

Or straight?

To achieve the perfect brows, our friendly technicians will adapt & balance your brows to the natural features of your face to get the best possible results.

If you are not sure about threading your own brows at home, then leave in the hands of our experienced threaders. Your brows deserve to be treated with utmost respect so leave it to the professionals to avoid dodgy looking eyebrows!

Here’s our brow threading tip:

Forcing a different shape other than your natural shape onto your face will look disharmonious to the rest of your facial features.

Some clients like to have their eyebrows very thin and defined. Whilst it suits some, others it can make the face look mean, and hard, and sometimes old.

We all know from seeing it in all forms of media that thick-shaped eyebrows are very popular. However, if kept too heavy, they can give the appearance of an angry dull face, as well as causing the eyebrows to dominate all the other features of the face, making them ultra-noticeable.


Often men over pluck & over shape their brows. This really isn’t a good look. Keeping them the tidy by removing excess hair between the brow and softly removing some of the excess hair beneath the brow is enough for pretty much everyone. Definition is not necessary when it comes to the grooming of men’s eyebrows as it needs to look as natural as possible. If you are a gentleman wanting a brow tidy, get in touch with our beauty technicians who will be able to book you in an appointment. Alternatively, as both of our salons are walk-in salons, why not swing by into either our Leicester or Peterborough on your lunch break, after work or at the weekend for the perfect brows, now and always.

With many years of experience in the world of eyebrows, our brow threading experts will advise you of the most suitable shape for you face.

Step 2: Stretch the Eyelid

Stretching the eyelid area so that it is taught makes hair removal easier and more comfortable. While brow threading isn’t 100% painless, it isn’t a horrible experience by any stretch of the imagination- whenever you pull hair out of your skin, it’ will hurt a little. Since the thread is laid down onto the skin in a straight line, it will pull several hairs out at a time. This will create a clean shape for your eyebrow achieving the perfect brow shape.

Step 3: Creating the arch

First things first, the line underneath your eyebrow will need to be shaped. This is the basis of the arch, and the most important step in shaping your eyebrow.

Step 4: Clearing the hair above the brow

The hair above your eyebrow can be also be threaded for more definition-especially if your hairline runs into the top of your eyebrow.

Step 5: Between the eyebrows

Removing hair between your eyebrows is the last step. The general rule is to not to remove hair past the corners of your eyes. If your eyebrows are too far apart, they can make your eyes appear smaller and make your nose appear wider.

A few important points

The Eyebrow Threading technique is kinder than other methods of hair removal such as waxing, as it removes the hair without pulling on the skin around the eye area.

The eye area is far more delicate than the rest of your face, as it is thinner. It is important to treat it with the utmost care as it usually one of the first areas that can reveal the signs of ageing.

Threading is a good alternative to other hair removal methods for sensitive skins and skins that may have sensitivity due to other chemical treatments.

If you would like your eyebrows threaded, get in touch with one of our BBs Beauty & Brows salons in Leicester or Peterborough and we’ll sort the rest.

Of course, if you feel that the eyebrow threading technique is not for you, we also offer waxing, as well as shaping with the use of tweezers.
