Bande Abru

Four years ago, we discovered an Ancient Indian tradition right here in Gainesville: eyebrow threading. Also popular in Persia , Bande Abru ("Abru" means eyebrow, and "Band" is the thread) was used to signify when a little girl was turning into a woman. Practitioners use a pure cotton thread. They generally twist the hair and threading pulls out a whole row of hair, as opposed to tweezing where only one single hair is pulled out. Threading is often preferred to tweezing because of the naturally straight lines of hair removed by the thread. It is pulled out from the follicle. Vena is our amazing practitioner! It instantly completely changes the shape of your face and you are always guaranteed perfectly arched eyebrows! (Carly's right brow is threaded)...
