Threading is an ancient method of hair removal that utilizes a cotton thread to remove unwanted hair from the eyebrows and facial area. As a threading studio, Brow Story provides clients a natural way to get beautiful, well-groomed brows. While still keeping our planet green. Not only does threading last longer than traditional waxing without the side effect, but you can also get threaded even if your on certain meds whereas when waxing you can't be on these meds such as; Accutane, Coumadin, Oral Cortisone/Steroid, Prednisone, acne medications, blood thinners, Retin-A and Differin. Waxing takes off a layer of skin every time applied as opposed to Threading that only takes off hair even those annoying little baby hairs. And let's not forget threading is more precise and can give you the perfect arch you've always desired.

The extensions are synthetic and made of a single polyester fiber thread. The application includes applying one single, silky lash extension to each one of your own individual lashes. The process is very relaxing and pain free. Plan on spending 60 to 120 minutes for the initial application and 45 to 90 minutes for touch ups.

Yes, when applied by a trained professional. The extensions are applied individually to your natural individual hair and not to the skin. We do not group your natural eyelashes to attach a single eyelash extension, we apply them individually.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
As a natural part of the hair growth cycle, a person is continuously losing and re-growing new eyelashes every 45 -60 days. The extensions should last as long as the natural growth cycle of each eyelash hair, which is why we recommend that our clients come in every few weeks for touch ups to maintain existing lashes by removing any that are loose and by adding new extensions to new hair growth.
How do I care for my eyelash extensions?
Very simple! Just avoid water and steam on lashes for the first 24 hours after they are applied. Following the first day; you can shower, swim, workout, etc. You should however avoid rubbing and pulling on lashes and DO NOT USE an eyelash curler. Mascara is not necessary anymore but ok to use as long as it is water washable.You should not use waterproof mascara because it can disturb and weaken the adhesive bond of the lash extension.
