Beauty regimens have been a tradition in India right from
ancient times. The glamour of Indian ranis and maharanis has
been legendary. Gathering the same beauty secrets from her
grandmother and aunts, Reshma Monteiro of Perfect Shape fame
has blended ancient knowledge with modern know-how to bring
you state-of-the-art beauty treatments at her new Perfect
Shape Threading Salon. Come experience it for yourself!
What is threading?
Threading has its origins in India and
the Middle East. It is a unique beauty procedure of removing
unwanted hair from
any part of the body. Threading was used as an exclusive beauty
treatment for special occasions like weddings and festivals.
Now it has become popular in the west amongst women and men
alike. It is gentle to enough to remove facial hair and strong
enough to remove tough hair on legs and hands. What makes threading so unique is that it restrains hair from growing back fast.
It also reduces hair thickness and density so that it grows
back fine and light. No other hair removal treatment can achieve
this. What’s more, threading doesn’t pull the skin,
preventing it from looking saggy and therefore keeping wrinkles
As Reshma explains, ‘With threading, all we touch is
the hair. We don’t pull the skin like with waxing. Whenever
you pull skin, there’s always a chance that you’re
breaking it down and wrinkles can start.’
How is threading done?
A fully trained Perfect Shape beautician uses a fine, 100%
cotton thread as a loop to catch, twist and pull out individual
hair. This way each hair is individually targeted and removed.
It takes an experienced touch to accomplish this swiftly without
causing much discomfort. Since the hair is pulled out from
its root, it does not grow back that fast. Depending on individuals,
threading results can last for a fortnight up to a month or
Reshma says that anyone can easily learn
the real technique is learning how to shape the eyebrow. That
takes a while. It’s like an art. You can study for years
and never get it right.’
Flaunting perfectly shaped eyebrows
Threaded eyebrows take eye appeal to a
completely new level. Eyes are the mirrors of your soul.
Imagine a perfect frame
to those mirrors – your eyebrows! Perfectly shaped eyebrows
contour your eyes and enhance them.
At Perfect Shape Salon, we remove unwanted hair around your
eyebrows and lower forehead and shape your arch. This gives
a totally new dimension to your eye appeal and brightens up
your face instantly.
There is usually no gain without any pain. With threading,
you may experience a little redness and burning but that goes
within 15 minutes. And you are left with beautifully shaped eyebrows. Since hair is pulled from their roots, they grow
back much slower and less dense. In effect, you get good results
Which body parts can I get threading done for?
Threading is a completely natural procedure and works for
all skin types. So you can use it for any area you choose to
remove hair from. Tweezing is time consuming. Waxing may leave
a rash. Depilatory creams may not be suitable for sensitive
skin. With threading, you can be absolutely sure that facial
hair will be removed safely without any tell-tale signs left
behind. You can enjoy a silky smooth look in minutes. Threading is especially effective for removing thick facial hair.
You can even target eyebrows, the chin,
upper lip, sides of the face or forehead individually. Threading catches the finest
and tiniest of hair so you can be sure of cent percent hair
removal. What’s more, trained hands at Perfect
Shape Threading Salon will ensure that you don’t feel any sting
at all. Apart from being absolutely safe and chemical free, threading in not expensive either.

Reshma Monteiro has
many unique secrets in her beauty kit. She shares one
such tip here-
water dabbed in cotton wool acts both as a cooling
emollient after threading and an astringent to close
the open pores. It immediately reduces the redness
and exhilarates you with its sweet scent.
