What is threading?
Threading is an ancient art of facial hair removal. It has been practiced for centuries in India and other parts of Asia and the Middle East. The process involves a special piece of thread, made of 100% cotton, in which the ends are knotted together to make a circle. The thread is then twisted to form the shape of a bow tie and glided along your skin. As the unwanted hair comes into the twist of the thread, it is lifted straight from the roots.
How is it different than plucking or waxing? Plucking- It is difficult to grab fine hair with tweezers, the process takes forever.
Waxing- Waxing will leave you with clean lines but one false drip or application of the wax and you could have an entire clump of wanted hairs accidentally ripped off. Most describe their skin as feeling raw right after. And those with extremely sensitive skin due to the use of glycolic products or Ratine-A, could be left with missing skin.
Threading - The process is fast. It leaves you with clean lines on the top and bottom of your brow and is quick and often less painful than plucking individual hair with tweezers or applying hot wax to delicate skin on your face. Threading can grab multiple hair at once or fine individual hair giving great control to the Threading Artist. Most use threading for their eyebrows and upper lips, but some also use threading for their entire face! It leaves your skin feeling smooth naturally without the application of any chemicals to your delicate face.
