Whether you are new to brow shaping or you’ve been doing it so long that you catnap during your sessions, it might be time to give threading a try. Since threading is not as common in Seattle as, say, Istanbul, there are threading experts to be found here in our own beauty mecca. Threading was once done primarily before special occasions, but we are fortunate we can schedule our own de-fuzzing appointments most any time.

Shanti Threading Salon
1305 N.E. 45th St., Suite 209
Seattle, WA 98105
(206) 295-5548

Located in the heart of the University District near UW and adjacent to Neptune Theatre, this well-lit, simple little gem consistently gets positive ratings. Threading is the main attraction, but facials, henna temporary tattoos and waxing are also available. Prices are already reasonable, but prepaid membership cards reduce cost even further, making Shanti an attractive and viable option for college students and starving artists alike. Since threading is said to be gentler on the skin, creating little to no redness or swelling, you can have your service done and enjoy time in the U District afterward without feeling conspicuous.

Blend Herbal Spa
817 N.W. 85th St.
Seattle, WA 98117
(206) 297-6000

Autumn at Blend Herbal Spa is in such high demand that some clients schedule a year at a time with her to make sure they get their girl. Known as The Brow Queen to some, Autumn does waxing, but offers threading to those who cannot receive waxing. Blend Herbal Spa does business out of a darling Ballard cottage. You will be greeted by a friendly garden where Blend grows its own organic flowers and herbs for use in skincare, and you will leave with a customized brow shape.

Rainier, Dr. Niedbalski is seeing more patients for eyebrow restoration than ever before.
