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 at bay.

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 more.

Reshma says that anyone can easily learn threading, ‘but 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 that last.

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.

So sit back in the white leather chairs set against calming lavender walls and enjoy perfect pampering at any of the Perfect Shape Threading Salons, any time of the day. You don’t need to make any appointments in advance. Just walk in and be treated like royalty. Perfect Shape Threading Salons believe that every person deserves to be treated special. We promise once you experience the Perfect Shape hospitality, you will be hooked forever!


Reshma Monteiro has many unique secrets in her beauty kit. She shares one such tip here-

Rose 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.
