How Much Does Threading Cost?

post E-mail post Post  

Threading is an Eastern-based method of hair removal that dates back thousands of years. A single strand of cotton thread is used to remove short lines of hair, plucking out the offending hairs at the follicle level. Threading is typically restricted to regions on the face such as eyebrows, upper lip or chin.

Typical costs:

  • The cost of removing hair through threading is typically on par with the cost of removing hair through waxing. The cost varies by body part, with hairier and more sensitive areas costing more. One of the most common threaded areas is the eyebrows, typically costing $5-$20. Another popular area for threading is the upper lip, which typically costs $5-$15 to thread.
  • The cost of threading can vary based on location and availability. For example, in larger cities with more competition for threading, eyebrow threading can cost as little as $5. In places with less competition, the cost of threading eyebrows can be $20.
  • For example, House of Beauty[1] , which has dozens of locations in Southern California, charges $8 for brows, $5 for the upper lip and $25 for the full face. Sid's Eyebrow Threading, a St. Louis, Mo., establishment, charges $4-$30 for threading various parts of the face.
  • At-home threading kits are available for purchase and vary in price and success. A low-cost home threading device, the Helix Thread Ease hair removal system[2] , costs $20.

What should be included:
  • A trained esthetician will use cotton thread to remove body hair from a specific area, typically part of the face. Threading is occasionally combined waxing. After the procedure, some estheticians apply soothing lotions to the affected area. The threading generally last 2-4 weeks before new hair grows back.
Additional costs:
  • Post-treatment creams and applications are available for purchase that can sooth red bumps or prevent growth of ingrown hairs. The post-treatment products typically cost $10-$20. Many are available at retailers such as Folica.com[3] or Sally's Beauty[4] .
  • A 15% to 20% gratuity is considered standard.
Discounts:
  • Some salons offer discounts to students, seniors or military personnel.
Shopping for threading:
  • Esthetician licensing varies by state, with each state requiring different qualifications. Generally, each state should have a board of cosmetology, where license for local estheticians can be verified.
  • Glamour Magazine offers a list of dos and don'ts[5] for those planning on having threading done.
