Eyebrow Threader Jobs on the Increase
This is because it's currently fashionable having your brows shaped and tidied by a threading specialist. It's out with the classic tweezers and in with the exotic art of threading. It's no surprise therefore that salons are looking to recruit therapists that can thread. Being able to offer a treatment that's in vogue can bring in significant additional salon income.
If you're a specialist eyebrow threader then you'll probably stand a good chance with the numerous eyebrow threader jobs being advertised by specialist eyebrow bars like Blink who operate bars within department stores like Selfridges and Debenhams. Often their vacancies will require that the eyebrow specialist will also be able to offer additional brow and lash treatments such as lash perming, lash extensions and brow and lash tinting. And so you ultimately become an expert of the brow and eyelashes.
If you're a qualified beauty therapist and like the variety and scope of more traditional face and body treatments but would like to enhance your appeal to employers then you would likely benefit from getting a diploma in threading.
An increased number of employers are now stipulating the ability to thread as a minimum requirement in their beauty therapist applicants, as brow treatments are so popular with their clients. You might be a great all round therapist but if you can't thread eyebrows when applying to such job vacancies you won't be invited to interview. And then of course specialist brow bars also have a preference for qualified (NVQ level 2 & 3) beauty therapists who have the ability to thread over brow specialist who can't also offer the nail treatments and waxing services that these companies also like to offer.
As you can see if you're a beauty therapist wanting to improve your appeal to employers then it's worth considering acquiring this skill.
What qualifications do I need?
You will find an increased number of colleges now offering 1 and 2 day courses in threading some of which will enable you to acquire the know how skills to carry out threading on the whole face. Contrary to popular opinion threading isn't just confined to hair removal from the brow area!
Some colleges will require you to have a minimum course entry requirement of NVQ level 2 in beauty therapy. Particulars will be displayed on the college website.
Of course it doesn't stop with getting the qualification. Being able to work quickly and yet still create the perfect brow shape takes lots of practice and some employers will require between 2-5 years experience in their threaders.
