Threading

Threading is an ancient hair removal technique that has been used in India and the Middle East for thousands of years. Recently, threading has begun to gain popularity in Western culture, particularly in the United States. The technique has provided many people with a proven alternative to waxing and plucking. However, there are still many people that do not know about threading and how it can improve their beauty routine.

Advantages

Accuracy

Perhaps the biggest benefit that threading has over other techniques is the ability to shape eyebrows with stunning precision. Individual hairs can be targeted, but multiple hairs can still be removed at the same time. It is like having the accuracy of tweezing and combining it with waxing’s ability to remove an abundance of hairs simultaneously. Threading can remove one clean line of hair at once, allowing the threading artist to perfectly shape the eyebrows. Unlike waxing, a threading artist has a perfect view of what he or she is doing at all times. Since there are no other materials besides the thread, there is nothing to obstruct their vision.

Less Pain

It is generally agreed that threading is not as painful as waxing and other hair removal procedures. This may be due to the fact that the thread itself does not touch the skin during hair removal. The skin beneath and around the eyebrow is thin and can be sensitive, which is why techniques that pull directly on this skin typically cause more pain.

Save Time

Tweezing your eyebrow hair by hair can take an eternity. Fortunately, threading solves this problem by removing multiple hairs at once. The threading artist simply weaves the thread through all of the hairs that need to be removed then gives the thread a tug. This quick process can be repeated until the desired eyebrow shape is attained. Eyebrow threading can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes to complete.
