Treatments

Today, we have established kiosks in six locations and offer an array of beauty treatments Including:

Threading, Waxing, Tinting, Lashes and Nails.

Threading

In threading, a thin thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair.

Advantages cited for eyebrow threading are that it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is gentler on the skin.

There are a few different techniques for threading. These include the hand method, mouth method and neck. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages; however, the mouth holding method practiced in Macarina is the fastest and most precise.
Threading allows for a more defined and precise shape and can create better definition for eyebrows. It is also used as a method of removing unwanted hair on the entire face and upper lip area. Although threading may not seem as glamorous or hi-tech as electrolysis or laser hair removal, it is still one of the safest, quickest, most precise and thorough forms of hair removal in the beauty industry.

Threading for eyebrows is widely practiced throughout Asia, the Middle East, and now Europe. The Arabic word for threading is ‘Khite’; in Egypt it is also called ‘Fatlah’.

Waxing

Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, at Macarina we focus on the eyebrows, face and neck. This is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair.

Macarina offers waxing services to Men and Women that include:

  • Eyebrow Shape

  • Upper/Lower Lip

  • Chin

  • Forehead

  • Sides

  • Neck

Tinting

Tint is a form of semi-permanent hair-dye formulated specifically for use on the eyebrows or eyelashes. There are many reasons people choose to tint their eyebrows in particular, but the most common reasons include:

Wanting thicker looking eyebrows

Tinting hairs reveal a neat, shapely, sharply defined brow. The darker colour will make them appear naturally thicker.

Wanting to add definition to the face

It’s amazing what a difference a nice pair of shapely eyebrows can make to the structure of the face. Having neat, defined eyebrows frames the eyes, boosts facial symmetry and creates an attractive high-contrast look.

Eyebrow tinting is a lot safer than attempting to dye your eyebrows at home with hair-dye. Putting any sort of chemical near the eyes is extremely hazardous and inadvisable. Visiting Macarina Beauty minimises the risk of anything going wrong because we comply with certain safety measures. Macarina safety measures include:

Client Consultation Form that assesses your tint history and experience

Carrying out a patch test at least 24 hours prior to treatment

Using Vaseline to keep the tint off the skin

Using a disposable applicator to prevent the spread of infection between clients

The most common reason for Eyelash tinting is because it produces a similar effect to mascara. It visibly lengthens, darkens and thickens the appearance of eyelashes without smudging, clotting or rubbing off. It is essentially a permanent form of mascara which stays smudge-free and perfect until you shed your lashes naturally.

Macarina offers both Eyebrow Tint and Eyelash Tint services.

Eyelashes

Applying extensions to the eyelashes is a practice that enhances the length, thickness and fullness of natural eyelashes. Although eyelashes serve a basic function (to keep dirt particles out of our eyes), they’re also great for adding definition and boosting femininity.

It is worth noting that not all Eyelash services are the same. Although false eyelashes and eyelash extensions both enhance the length of eyelashes, they differ in various ways. Temporary false lashes are any lashes designed to be worn for a short period of 1–2 days. They are not designed to be worn when showering, sleeping or swimming. They are applied with lash glue designed specifically for temporary lashes. Semi-permanent lashes, also known as individual eyelash extensions, are eyelashes applied with an adhesive with a stronger bond. The bond is designed to last until the lashes naturally fall out.

Eyelash extensions create eyelashes that remain on for approximately 3–4 weeks with their natural growth and shedding cycle. However, the extensions may fall out faster if oil-based eye makeup remover is used, as oil weakens the bond between the glue and the lash. Moreover, rubbing your eyes regularly also causes the extensions to fall out faster. To keep your eyelashes maintained, one should not rub on their eyes or wear any mascara. Instead, you should use oil-free make up removal wipes, eyelid cleanser, and avoid rubbing around the eye area.To keep the eyelashes full, they must be refilled bi-monthly.

Long eyelashes can:

  • Help you look younger
  • Help you look more feminine
  • Draw attention to your eyes
  • Add definition to your eyes
  • Make your eyes look bigger
  • Make you look more attractive

Nail Treatments

A manicure is a beauty treatment for the fingernails. A manicure consists of filing and shaping the free edge, pushing and clipping any nonliving tissue, massage of the hand and the application of fingernail polish. The English word manicure comes from the French word manucure, meaning “care of the hands”, which in turn originates from the Latin words manus, for “hand”, and cura, for “care”.
