All about threading !

Threading is one of the oldest methods of body hair removal. It originated in Turkey, although it is currently most popular in India and other parts of the Middle East. Today, threading is also gaining popularity in Western cosmetology. It is widely seen in malls and shops all over America and England. My sister actually works in house of Fraser doing eyebrow threading. It is extremely popular and growing more and more so.

Threading involves the practitioner rolling twisted cotton threads over hairlines to remove unwanted hair. To do this, the threader holds one end of a cotton thread between her teeth and the other in her left hand. The middle part of the thread is looped through the index and middle fingers of the right hand. 
The loop is used to trap unwanted hair so that it can be easily plucked from the skin. This is a difficult technique that takes practitioners many months to perfect.As with all methods of body hair removal, there are both advantages and disadvantages to threading.
Perfect threading
  • Threading lasts longer than most hair removal methods, barring laser removal which is a permanent procedure.
  • Threading is much healthier for the skin than waxing, and it creates no ingrown hairs
  • It is inexpensive and fast
  • Threading is suitable for all skin types, even those too sensitive for laser hair removal or waxing.
  • It takes no more than 15 minutes to thread both eyebrows.
  • No chemicals are used in threading, so there is no risk of a negative reaction.
  • The results of the treatment last for two to four weeks


  • The process is a little uncomfortable as it like plucking a few hairs at a time.
  • Threading only works on flat surfaces and does not work on bikini lines or knees. But really shouldnt be carried out any where other than the face.

So that's my run down about threading its my preferred method of hair removal and it really does last well. Make sure your threader understands exactly what shape you want and asks you regularly to look in a mirror to see how your shape is looking. If you are nervous about it please let your threader no this will insure they take extra care and will hand you the mirro more offern. Then all that's left to do is enjoy your lovely perfect crisp shaped brows! 

Happy Threading !!!
