The Benefits of Threading vs Waxing

While tweezing has its benefits, we have turned to better solutions to keep our eyebrows looking great like threading or waxing. Both offer a cleaned up look, but we were starting to wonder if one might be better than the other. So, we asked our sorority sisters their thoughts on threading and we came up with a couple of reasons as to why threading is better than waxing.
  • No burning! In order to use wax it needs to be warm, but in some cases the wax can be too hot for your skin and cause lots of pain and scabbing/scarring. You don't have to worry about any of that with threading since no heat is used.
  • No chemicals. If you have sensitive skin, chances are waxing can be irritating since lots of preservatives, resins, and fragrances are components of the wax. With threading no chemicals are used-just a piece of thread!
  • Less skin contact. While both threading and waxing have an interaction with skin, waxing seems to have more contact with the skin as it pulls at it while removing the hair. Threading has more contact with the root of the hair rather than taking the skin. 
  • Limited redness. Since waxing pulls at the skin, it causes inflammation and creates a distinct red color in the areas of the skin pulled. Threading also causes some redness, but it is very mild and does not linger like after waxing does. It usually disappears within the hour.
Which do you prefer: Threading or waxing? Weigh in here or let us know on Instagram, @thesororitysecrets.


  1. I've been getting my eyebrows waxed since I was 13 years old (So for the past 10 years? Great.). But today, after a series of "#whitegirlproblems" and my go-to brow lady not returning my texts, I decided that it was time to see what this eyebrow threading was all about.
    Let me tell you!
    I was so happy with the results and was pleasantly surprised that the entire process was practically pain-free. A bad wax job on on the brows is worse than a bad hair cut and can always bring me to tears. I've seen the light that is eyebrow threading and I will never go back to my old ways!
    Anyway, waxing or threading, I think you girls should post somewhat of an eyebrow tutorial! I feel like brows can really make or break your look and the perfect brows seem to be a beauty trend that everyone is really jumping on board with. So I guess I'm wondering what are some of your tips for eyebrow maintenance? Shaping? Filling? All of it! Tell us!
