The Origins of Threading

Where did threading originate?
Threading is an ancient form of hair removal.  Many different cultures pass the technique down from mothers, aunties, and grandmothers.  Like most other beauty techniques like braiding, it is part of a rich oral and teaching tradition between women that we are lucky to be part of today.  
Threading is prevalent in the area I was taught to call the Middle East and Asia, definitely including Egypt, Persia, India, and... ? 
I feel it would be safe to deduce that the practice was taught one person at a time and spread out globally as the benefits were enjoyed by fuzzy ladies everywhere!  

The lack of written histories about the lives of women makes it difficult to pinpoint the originators of this amazing technique, but we owe a debt of thanks to the first woman who caught her arm hair in a spinning wheel, and noticed the bare spot looked kind of pretty!  

Let this be an invitation to anyone with historical information on the evolution of ancient beauty techniques to share them with me.  I dream of working as a shop girl in an ancient salon in Egypt or India, and see if I can hold my own! Oprah, fund my dream!!

Brows Stylist Levels

What do the different levels mean?

At Brows we hire natural talent.

All Brows' stylists are licensed by the state of Colorado.

We guarantee they are safe, clean, and skilled.

Brows' service level numbers lets a client know how experienced their designer is.
The higher the number the more services they have performed at Brows.

We are a small shop, we don't have much turnover, so we aren't throwing anyone on the floor before they are ready.

The bottom line is that at Brows our Level One stylists have already proven themselves to provide an above average service.

Question: Be Honest. Will a Level One designer screw up my Brows?

Answer:  NO.  A Level One Designer will give you a wonderful service. We use models during a training process for them to get used to our wax.  You may find their schedule to have more availability, and you will get in on the ground floor with them, and help them to discover their signature style.

Question:  Be Honest.  Is it worth it to pay for a Level Higher than a One?

Answer:  YES.  They have a loyal following for a reason.  Every person has unique challenges in their hair growth patterns, skin type, style and these stylists have seen it all.  If you have brow dreams that seem beyond reach, you may find your solutions in the capable hands of these stylists.
