Threading Cost


How Much Does Threading Cost?

 
 average costMedium: Typically $5-$20 Per Area 
post Post   Comments (3)  

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.

My 1st time receiving Eyelashes. That evening My Eyes started to get extremely irritated. By that Morning, I could hardly SEE ANYTHING. I had to be held by My Hand, because I had to take care of some Important Business. I got Physically sick, passed out. I did Speak with the Salonist who did my Service. She had no problem refunding my money or redoing the job. She wouldn't admit that the made a mistake. My family and friends could see that the lashes that were glued we're on the end that goes on my Eye. It's an Honest Mistake, and She was Nice & Proffessional it, but wouldn't own-up to Her Mistake. That made me upset, more than anything else. I never went back.

The Stylist put the glue for my lashes on the side of the lashes, that are supposed to be attached to my eye. Bottom line, my eyes has an allergic reaction to the glue, because she put them on in correctly.
