You’ve probably had your eyebrows threaded before, but few of us would consider face threading. The same threading technique is applied – cotton threads are used to pluck fine hair out of their follicles easily and swiftly. Not restricted to just eyebrows, face threading targets facial hair on one’s upper lip, chin, forehead, cheeks, and sideburns. In fact, threading is one of the world’s oldest methods of hair removal.
But is face threading really necessary? Some say that their faces look smoother and brighter after a threading session. There are also claims that makeup applies much more smoothly without the facial fuzz. If you’re thinking of removing unwanted facial hair, threading is a great option, especially for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin.
We’ve compared five popular face threading salons in Singapore so that you can decide for yourself which one you think is the best!
Rimpy Beauty Art Most affordable!
Rimpy may look nondescript, but this threading salon located at Clementi Central is highly raved about in forums and other platforms. Their Indian beauticians are very experienced in the art of threading, so once it’s your turn, you can expect to be in and out of their shop within 10 minutes. Its no-frills service is possibly the cheapest around.
After your threading session, make sure to have a serving of Clementi’s well-known rojak from the coffee shop at the opposite block (Block 449) as well!
Price: S$15 for a full face threading
What people say: Those who’ve visited Rimpy Beauty Art praise the salon for being great value-for-money. However, you may be required to wait in line for quite a while since this place appears to be always crowded.
Location: Blk 447 Clementi Ave 3, #01-209, Singapore 120447 (a five-minute walk from Clementi MRT station)
Opening hours: 10am – 8pm (Mon) | 9.30am – 9pm (Tue to Sun)

Forest Salon Bedok 22% off!
For the ones living in the East of Singapore, Forest Salon Bedok is the place to bid your unwanted face fuzz goodbye. This salon doesn’t use threading to remove the hair from your face – instead, it uses waxing to give you smooth, hairless skin.
And we really mean it when we say smooth. Waxing doesn’t just take away the hairs but also sloughs away the dead skin cells on your face, giving your skin a simultaneous exfoliation too!
Price: The salon’s Face Waxing + Underarm Waxing + Eyebrow Threading Package is priced at S$40 instead of S$51 on Salon Finder.
What people say: The salon is rated a sparkling 4.8 out of five stars on Google. Most customers visit the salon for the hair services like perming and colouring, so why not also get a hair refresh while you’re there?
Location: Blk 84 Bedok North Street 3, #01-59, Singapore 460084
Opening hours: 9am – 8pm (Mon to Sat) | 9am – 7pm (Sun)
