Eyebrow threading is a depilation technique which originated in India, although it is also widely practiced in the Middle East. Salons in Western nations offered the service to Middle Eastern clients for decades before European and American women became interested and the popularity of eyebrow threading skyrocketed. The hair removal technique is not just for the eyebrows: threading can be used to remove other facial and body hair as well.
Eyebrow threading is a preferred hair removal technique for a number of reasons. Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and some depilatory creams can. If done correctly, the skin should not be red or irritated for more than a few minutes after the eyebrow threading session. Some aestheticians also find it easier to shape eyebrows using this technique than other methods available.
The words pedicure from Latin words. Pedicure came from the latin word pedis meaning feet and cura meaning care. Thus pedicure means the care of the feet. A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet and the nails. The word pedicure refers to superficial cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails. A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and nail disorders.
Pedicures are not just limited to nails; usually dead skin cells on the bottom of feet are rubbed off using a rough stone called a pumice stone. Additionally, leg care below the knee became a common and now expected service included in pedicures.
Waxing is a safe and effective method of removing unwanted facial and body hair, using heated wax.The warm wax is applied to the desired area using a wooden applicator, and then the wax is quickly removed, taking the unwanted hair with it.
At least ¼ inch of growth should be present. This is normally about 10-14 days growth (post-shaving).
Hair typically grows back in two to eight weeks depending on the individual. Due to cycles of hair growth (we have three), you may experience re-growth sooner. This is not the waxed hair growing back - it is the emergence of hair which was not present (or too short) at the time of waxing. With regular waxing early on, you can decrease the frequency with which you’ll need it.
Facial is a very general term for skin treatments usually performed by a licensedaesthetician. As the name implies, it is skin treatment for the face, though you may be lucky and get some neck or shoulder massage (and sometimes even a foot massage) too. There are a variety of types of facials, different types of products used, and there can be some variation in length. The typical extensive facial generally lasts about an hour or even longer, and other treatments called “mini-facials” may only take about 15-30 minutes.
The basic goals of facials are the same regardless of treatment, and you can expect the following things to occur when you have one:
• The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and dead skin cells will be ex foliated.
• The aesthetician will likely evaluate your skin type and find treatments that will best tone and moisturizer that type.
• You may have extraction of blackheads.
• You will likely have a skin mask treatment. You may have some degree of facial massage with applications of various creams and moisturizers.
Usually you will get quite a bit of advice from the person giving the facial on exactly what products she/he thinks are best suited to you for daily skin care, but if you already use things you like, you don’t necessarily have to spend several hundred of dollars more buying all new products. Retail of these products can be a vital part of an aesthetician’s business.
