What is Threading
Eyebrow Threading is the practice of shaping eyebrows using just thread. It’s a very gentle, sanitary, and painless way of removing unwanted facial hair. It is commonly practiced in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Middle East and other Asian countries. This technique is currently being accepted widely in the USA as one of the safest methods for facial hair removal.
Threading is an acquired skill, hence only a trained professional can do it. It is a craft that requires time and practice to master it. It is also an art form, creating clean lines with precision and refining the quality as well as the appearance of the face. Threading is the answer to those who are looking for a natural, fast and painless way to get rid of unwanted facial hair.
Threading requires a lot of practice and precision in making the hair removal as painless as possible for the receiver. The person dispensing the beauty treatment for hair removing via threading is required to gently and precisely twist a certain length of cotton thread around both hands and twist and catch each hair strand that is to be removed. This twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle. Threading is also used to remove hair from other parts of the face like upper lip, chin, and sides.
Why is Threading better than Waxing, Tweezing, and Razors?
Waxing, Tweezing & Razors
Waxing tends to burn, peel, and irritate the skin around the eye.
Repeated waxing increases the chances of wrinkles, especially around the sensitive eye area.
Tweezing and using of razors increases the chances of ingrown hairs and cutting of the skin.
Waxing, tweezing, and razors make facial hair grow back thicker and faster.
Threading is more precise and the hair grows back thinner and slower. There is no burning, peeling or irritation, and is good for getting rid of ingrown hairs.
Threading can help pull out specific individual hair.
Facial threading is a good alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin people who are on Retin A and Accutane.
Eyebrow threading not only removes unwanted hair from your eyebrow but also helps to get a precise and defined eyebrow shape.
How often does one have to get Threading Done
It varies from person to person but for eyebrows, usually 2-3 weeks.
