In Ancient Egypt, beauty rituals were almost an obsession, Cleopatra is famous for bathing herself in goats milk to keep her skin young, and truthfully, the Egyptians have a reputation for being particularly vain. What a lot of people don’t know is that our daily routines of hair removal started all the way from then, it was a sign of wealth. Over the years the beauty regime stuck and by 1700, a straight blade was invented.
By 1880 Gillette created the first razor for men, and by the time we reached 1940, Remington realized the first electric razor for women, the first of it’s kind and hair removal for women was becoming publicly accepted.
In 1960 waxing strips were made available on the high street, especially popular for women as the high-cut swim suit became iconic for the time and by the 1980’s women and men were waxing and using hair removal. Threading is an ancient tradition of hair removal that has been around for centuries but has really become popular in the last few years. One salon in Brighton has a dedicated team specializing in hair removal, particularly threading and waxing.
In Brighton, The Wax And Thread Company have opened its door in January 2015. Concentrating only on hair removal, it is the only salon in Brighton and Hove dedicated to waxing and threading, for women and men. Having slowly made their name on the salon scene in Brighton, The Wax And Thread Company have gain significant popularity since opening amongst salon goers and regular waxers due to their uniqueness. The age old tradition of Threading has become very popular and is now a preferred first choice method for facial hair removal, as opposed to invasive facial waxing. By recognising that waxing is a regular maintenance routine, it is no longer for an occasion; a maintenance rather than a luxury treat, that doesn’t mean it has to be an unpleasant experience one has to endure. While the emphasis is on removing the hair, clients are encouraged to relax in the calming luxurious environment and confident that you are in good hands.
The salon itself is cool, clean and contemporary with a relaxing atmosphere. As well as 2 treatment rooms there is also a dedicated threading room. Our small team of 4 therapists have 45 years of experience combined, while our 2 receptionists organise the logistics making sure clients are well looked after. Centrally located in the heart of town, the salon open 6 days a week including evenings, very popular with working professionals & commuters.
