Threading stall moves to shop

New shop: A popular beauty stall in the Waterside is getting a shop instead.

A popular facial hair threading stall in the Waterside Shopping Centre will move into new shop premises this month.

Define Eyebrows closed on April 9 so it can move and open its shop in the Waterside on April 16.

The company offers a special hair removal treatment (from £3) called threading, which comes from the Middle East.

Threading works by placing cotton around hairs and twisting, pulling from the root. It claims to be longer lasting than plucking and in some cases less painful.

The manoeuvre can be done on various parts of the face on both male and female clients.

Define Eyebrows will be sharing the shop with Vibe 10 Fitness, who will be allowing threading customers to its i.Fit machines for free on launch day.

Company director Becky Connell said: “Define Eyebrows has been in the Waterside for just over a year and has built up a loyal customer base.

“With the move into the shop we hope more people will try threading as some have been put off by being in the mall I’m sure.

“We hope to introduce a few new treatments once in the shop and hope that our clients will appreciate the more dedicated space.

“We are moving into a shop on a temporary basis with a new company Vibe 10 Ltd. Their i.Fit machine uses an oscilating and vibrating platform to exercise the muscles.

“The benefits are fat loss, muscle strength, lowering blood pressure, reducing cellulite, reducing joint pain and many more.”
