Threading is the process of removing unwanted hair from any part of the face, most commonly the eyebrows. A skilled practitioner uses a twisted cotton thread to grab hair at the follicle and quickly remove it. The method allows for precise shaping of the eyebrow with minimal discomfort. The ancient method of hair removal through eyebrow threading is attributed most commonly to Indian origins, but has also been used for centuries throughout the Middle East and parts of East Asia. The simple method, using nothing more than a cotton thread is growing in popularity in the West.
The benefits of eyebrow threading.
Eyebrow threading allows for a finer and more polished brow line than waxing, as each row of hairs are removed one at a time with a precise motion.
Threading is much less painful on sensitive areas of the skin, and many people typically experience less swelling, redness or irritation from threading than from waxing.
Threading is a much faster method than tweezing, because many hairs are pulled simultaneously.
Threading requires no chemicals, wax or disruption to the skin surface giving it advantages over other methods for hair removal.
Waxing typically removes the top layer of skin, resulting in a more painful experience than eyebrow threading.
