Eyebrow Threading - What You Must Know About Eyebrow Threading

in Hair-removal

Many women who have been getting their eyebrows waxed for many years are now turning to the old Eastern technique of threading in order to tame and shape their brows. The origins of this technique are not known for certain, there are rumors of Turkey, China, India and Arab nations being the creator, and although it is only starting to become better known in the west, it has been present in our society for decades now.

Even though it is a relatively new method of hair removal to be used in the West, it is a more comfortable and precise than waxing while retaining the same lasting results. Threading can also eliminate single hairs as well as multiple, while unlike tweezers and waxing, will also get rid of the very fine, short and barely visible hairs as well.

The art of threading involves twisting a portion of cotton thread into a double strand and then 'woven' into a line of the brow. This is done by the beautician holding one end of the thread in their hand and the other in their teeth, their free hand is then used to loop and twist the threads into and around the hairs and make sure the line is correct. This will make sure that the thread collects all the hairs in the section and in one quick movement will remove the hairs from the root.

Unlike waxing and depilatory creams, threading uses no chemicals or heat on the skin which prevents any ripping or irritation from occurring. The skin will be slightly red after threading but only for a few minutes. It is advised for anyone with sensitive and tender skin to use threading above any other form of hair removal due to the natural and painless technique that is used. Another benefit of this technique is that it is inexpensive, there are no costly chemicals used and it takes less than 15 minutes to complete. For people who like to remain natural and not have any harmful or strong substances involved in their beauty regimen, threading is the perfect hair removal method.

As well as having perfectly shaped and lined eye brows, there is no pain, redness, rash or irritation afterward, which can happen after other more popular forms of hair removal. When you go to get your eyebrows threaded, it is important to make sure that the beauty practitioner is skilled in the art as well as practices good hygiene. Threading is a long lasting method of hair removal and, in general, will only need to be touched up on every 3-4 weeks in order for the eye brows to remain shapely and beautiful.
