I am an American guy who came to Seoul, South Korea and loved the country and decided to stay to start Seoul Brow, the first Eyebrow Threading company in South Korea

The art of eyebrow threading has been practiced in ancient cultures like India, Pakistan, and Iran for many centuries by young and old females of the family who learn this unique art form.

We have found multiple pictures of the before and after pictures of people who have had their eyebrows threaded or trimmed. Notice the difference in how they look after the session

The practice of eyebrow threading is hygenic and safe. The cotton used is 100% natural cotton so it will be irritating the skin

Like most eyebrow threading locations, we also offer the service of doing henna tattoos in not only the traditional red color dye, but also more fun blue and green coloring.

So where else around the world can you get eyebrow threading done if you are outside of the country and looking for a location? Find out Here!

So what is eyebrow threading? How is it done and is it painful?

How To Thread Your Own Eyebrows

Maybe you have found that you are getting very frustrated with your regular threader because they seem to not be around the store or have closed their shop recently. You call and email these people who are supposed to be running a legitimate business and all you get are unanswered phone calls, texts, and emails.

You decide that maybe it is just smarter and cheaper to learn how to thread your own eyebrows. You don’t want to be the person who is always waiting for the other person to be free so you want to try out to thread your own eyebrows.

Well how do you get started in learning this ancient art of personal care and beauty?

First you have to decide whether you want to do threading the traditional way, which is just to use the thread and little else, or you want to do the threading at a much faster way using what is known as a Threading Device.

The traditional way for threading using just the thread is extremely cheap but not that easy and requires that you practice learning how to hold the thread in the right position.

So what are the steps?

Step 1 – Get the right type of thread to do your eyebrow threading. this is actually very important. Some people who are occasional threaders who don’t do it professionally would say that any 100% cotton based thread from a sewing kit would work but I would have to actually disagree. From my personal experience, the type of thread one should get is very important because if you get a thread that is too thin, it won’t be able to handle the thread-thread rubbing that will happen when you pull at one end to uproot the hairs. If you get the thread to be too hard or too thick , it won’t do a very good job in actually being able to grab onto the hairs and cause enough grip to actually pull out the hair. What is more likely to happen with thicker threads is that you would snap the hairs at the bottom instead of actually pull out the hair at the root.

Vanity Eyebrow ThreadSo which eyebrow thread do I recommend?

I prefer to go with something that is rather cheap but also strong, which I found from Amazon. It is called “Vanity Threading Thread Box” which costs only $5.50 for 10 spools.

Buy From Amazon Here! 

It comes in a box of 10 spools. The thread in general is strong for most types of hair, even coarse hair which one might find in the upper lip region, and it is still thin enough to have a reasonably good grip so that when you pull the thread to thread the eyebrow, the result is a smooth clean skin where the hairs are completely uprooted.

Step 2 – Learn how to hold the thread correctly in the hands. This step requires me to go into slightly more detail & give mini-steps…

The mini steps…

  • Mini-Step #1: First you pull about 18-24 inches of off the threading spool.
  • Mini-Step #2: You tie the ends of the broken thread together creating a fully close looped thread. Put the thread down and open it up so you can put your fingers through.
  • Mini-Step #3: You put your non-dominant hand’s middle finger and thumb into the loop. Some people prefer to use the fore finger and the thumb to do threading so if you feel more comfortable going with that, go with that. However I personally prefer to use the middle finger and thumb way.
  • Mini-Step #4: Use your dominant hand to pull the thread taut & twist the other end of the thread 4-6 times around.
  • Self Eyebrow ThreadingMini-Step #5: Use the same fingers in your dominant hand to pull the entire thread taut forming the “hourglass shape”.
  • Mini-Step #6: Now you are ready to put the thread’s triangular angle on your forehead ready to do the threading.

Step 3- Understand the direction of how your eyebrow hairs are naturally pushed in. Since you are planning on doing eyebrow threading on yourself, note that any directions that you remember for doing threading on other people is reversed.

  • For your left eyebrows, the left outer edge is going in the upper left direction. On the edge of the left eyebrow closer to the center near the nose, the direction which the hair goes in is upwards.
  • For your right eyebrows, the outer right edge is going in the upper right direction. On the edge of the right eyebrow close to the center near the nose, the direction which the hair is pushed towards is upwards as well.

Step 4 – Understand that for you to do a good job in completely uprooting the hairs from the root, you want to pull the thread against the natural direction of the hair.

  • This means that for your left eyebrow, you would want to put the eyebrow hair in the triangular angle in the right corner of the thread shape. Then you would open up your left middle finger and thumb to pull the hair in the right direction.
  • For your right eyebrow, the angle that you want to put the eyebrow hairs in is the left one created by the left middle finger and left thumb. You want to open your right hand’s fingers to pull in the left side to pull in the direction opposite of the hair’s growth.

The Simpler & Faster Way Using A Threading Device

If you instead you want to use a much simpler, faster way to thread your eyebrows, then you would want to buy a threading device. A threading device is a simple plastic thing where you hook the thread you are using to the ends of these entended ends. The thread is eventually put in a “figure 8 shape” or “hourglass shape”. You put the ends of

There are only a few threading devices that I know of right now which seem to do a reasonable job. The place where I went to find them is Amazon, although Ebay would work too.

Helix Threadase Threading ToolI have looked at the few types that are on Amazon and I would say that the best currently is the one called “Helix ThreadEase Threading Tools” which is just $20, which is reasonable in price compared to the others.

Buy From Amazon Here!

There is only 4 devices that I found on Amazon that is a device that allows a person to do their own eyebrows.

The 4 others are…

  1. Electric “Epithreader” Hair Removal System
  2. Slique Eyebrow Face and Body Hair Threading and Removal System
  3. Threading Eyebrow Hair Removal Machine Kit
  4. Karmissie Lux Deluxe Threader Kit

However, there are issues and problems with all of them in terms of either being too expensive, or being just not effective or strong enough to actually do a good job in hair removal. The Threading Eyebrow Hair Removal Machine Kit is around $80 and the one by Karmissie is $125! Yikes! No person would ever want to spend that much just for a system for only eyebrow shaping and trimming.

So to use the device, you hook the special thread you would already have bought to all 4 hook ends of the device, and then you position the two fork in opposite directions, holding the threads taut.

Self Threading DeviceYou then put the angles of the threads next to the region of the eyebrow you want to shape or trim. Refer to the picture to the right.

Note: I took that picture from the Amazon product page for the Helix ThreadEase Threading Tools

The only thing you need to do is to push down and up on the devices to simulate what it is like to get threading done usually by your local salon.

So hope that helps you girls (and maybe guys) figure out how to do your own eyebrows and take back your control of your beautification process.

Happy Threading,

Electrical Stimulation Devices For Hair Removal

Electrical Stimulation Devices For Hair Removal

Electrical Stimulation Devices For Hair RemovalSomething that a lot of people might not be aware of is that there are ways to remove hair that are unlike the conventional methods like waxing, shaving, trimming, or even the practice of epilation. We are talking about the practice of using a type of electrical current emitting device to remove hair.

The use of Functional Electrical Stimulation has been something that neurologist have been doing for decades now for medical applications. Some biomedical devices like Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation Devices have been used to stimulate nerve tissue for blocking electrical signals which tell the brain upwards of the spinal cord that there is no pain below in the body.

There are a lot of difference kinds of other ways to remove hair. There is the use of Lasers in Laser Hair Removal Surgery. There is the use of Ultrasound Surgery for hair removal as well. Check out the article entitled Laser Hair Removal - Cutting-edge ultrasound technology could spell the end of unsightly facial hair You can see a review on how effective Laser Hair Removal is from the video below

 

 

The last option is in using electrical stimulation to remove hair. There are already many devices which are sold which claim to use electrical current at low intensities and frequencies to regrow hair but at high intensities, those same electrical currents can be used to remove hair.

How does the technology work?

Most people realize that hair consists of actually a type of fibrous protein that the human body makes. The main component in hair is keratin. Keratin is a type of compound that makes up the nails, hair, and outer skin. To break down the protein all you have to do is break the external membrane or denature the structure of the protein. Laser Hair Removal works because the concentrated light is so intense that the structure of the proteins are completely unfolded.

In the same way, if a device can emit electrical currents that are strong enough, they can break down the fibrous keratin in the hair until they never grow back again. In some ways, this may be the safest way for smooth hairless skin.

Review Of HairMax LaserComb Advanced 7

HairMax LaserComb Advanced 7The HairMax LaserComb Advanced 7 was the first device we ever found which has the purposes of regrowing hair instead of removing them. We have talked about shaving, epilators, waxing, tweezing, and even Laser Hair Removal surgery but we have sort of neglected mentioning the fact that most people do want thick, luscious hair on their scalp. Not many people wish to go with the bald look.

Where To Get The Amazon Kindle In Seoul South Korea

Where To Get The Amazon Kindle In Seoul South Korea

Amazon Kindle In Seoul South KoreaSomeone recently asked me a question which left me actually a little puzzled. It was over the issue of finding the E-Reader sold by Amazon called the Kindle. Obviously their question was “Where can I get the Kindle in South Korea?” Since I have been living in Seoul, or South Korea in general for over a year now, they expected that I would be sort of some type of expert on South Korea and the shopping their.

This friend had been searching everywhere to find the device, including the COEX Mall, the Yongsan Electronics Market, and a few other places but they still could not find one place which carried the E-Reader Tablet.

After doing some searching I found out that apparently the country of South Korea does NOT carry the Kindle reader. It seemed that when Amazon first came out with the Kindle, the original models, Korea did import those models. Now, the only way that you can get the Kindle is to take a trip out of the country. On my recent trip to Ozaka, Japan I did find that the Kindle can be found in many stores.

However, once Samsung, the multinational conglomerate corporation decided to get into the tablet market, they started to build cheap tablets and edged the Tablet out of the Korean market due to price from the tariffs the Korean government had put on. The newest tablets that are coming out from Samsung are the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 & the Galaxy Tab 2. These tablet devices are not as small or thin as a Kindle but comparing the devices in weight, they both are very light.

So the best (and maybe only) way to get the Kindle when you are in South Korea is to buy it off of the Amazon website.
