6 Things to Know about Eyebrow Threading

Eyebrow threading is an effective way for shaping and sculpting eyebrows, and removing unnecessary facial hair. While many people grapple with the question whether to choose this method for hair removal, we thought to guide you through this process. Here are six things to know about eyebrow threading:

  1. In contrast to waxing, or tweezing, which can be painful and imprecise, threading is considered one of the safest and most precise methods of hair removal, especially in the delicate areas surrounding the eye.
  2. This method utilizes a thread, which pulls and twists unwanted hair until lifting them from their follicles. This ensures a more effective removal of hair.
  3. Waxing pulls the hair out in a single direction, while threading removes hair in different directions. Hair grow slowly after threading as compared to hair removal by waxing. 
  4. In addition to hair removal, threading offers a more precise method to shape eyebrows based on your needs and desires. Some common shapes include arched, rounded, straight, tapered, s-shaped, and other shapes for your eyebrows.
  5. Threading is a good choice because it doesn’t use harmful products or artificial chemicals.
  6. Threading can be done on any part of your face. The most common hair that is threaded is the eyebrows but you can also thread your chin, upper lip, forehead, neck, middle brow, and the sides of your face.

Shamim Beauty Parlor is excited to offer threading, hair, waxing, facial and bridal/party makeup services.

Hurricane Florence Warning for North Carolina

By the time many folks read this post, North Carolina and other states may already be hit by Hurricane Florence. The National Hurricane Center enhanced Florence to a category 4 storm as reported on September 10th. This will make it the strongest storm to hit North Carolina since storms have been recorded nationally (read more HERE).

Our hometown of Cary, NC, may not be in the path of the storm. Major damage is expected in the Outer Banks. However, inland areas are expected to receive heavy wind. North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper, has requested the federal government to declare the impending storm as a federal disaster. North Carolina state has ordered residents and tourists in Hatteras Island in Dare County to vacate the Island (read more HERE).

Hurricane Florence brings to memory Hurricane Fran that hit North Carolina in 1996. Fran is considered one of the most devastating storms to hit North Carolina. However, Hurricane Fran was a level 3 storm. This is one category smaller than the impending Hurricane Florence. Hurricane Florence’s track in much similar to Hurricane Fran’s track. It is not surprising that North Carolinians are worried as they await Florence (read more HERE).

Here are some tips on how to prepare for the storm.

Check out a list of supplies, as shared by the Charlotte Observer, that you should store before the storm.
