Are you a virgin to the ancient Indian technique? We’ve given your questions to our experts across the country and here we have the ins and outs of what to expect on your first visit!
Q – Why threading?
A – Threading pulls out the hair from its root therefore it lasts longer than plucking. It is a method using two pieces of thread that are intertwined together that removes your brow hair in defined lines therefore, giving the technician perfect control over shaping your brow.
Q – What shape should I have?
A – Our threading experts will do a thorough consultation. Whether you want a tidy up or want to join our ‘Back to Wow’ brow programme; Benito have got you covered. Our brow experts will advise you on what shape they believe is best and won’t move onto the other brow until you’re fully satisfied with the first one.
Q – Why do I need to stretch? – it’s extremely important
A – We ask you to stretch the skin surrounding your brows as this tightens that area allowing the technician to be more precise and have a smoother base to work with, ensuring they capture each hair they need to!
