Eyebrow Threading Is An Effective Alternative for Temporary Hair Removal
Eyebrow threading is one of the most interesting, inexpensive and effective ways of eliminating unwanted hair. Most people think it is done with a thread and needle, but the ancient threading art is done only with the thread. Eyebrows are a common area for threading but any hair can be removed with this ingenious method. Facial hair & eyebrow threading is gaining in popularity due to the precise nature of the process and its low cost as compared with waxing. This is the only way beauticians performed in India in all the day spas and salons.
Origins of Eyebrow Threading
Eyebrow threading is an early method of epilation, or removal of the entire hair, including the follicle below the skin surface. In ancient Persia, threading signaled the commencement of womanhood. Eyebrow threading is still the most prevalent method for hair removal in the Middle East and India to this day.

What Is Threading?
Cotton-sewing thread is cut to size and one end is knotted. The loop that is created can be small or large; whatever is comfortable for the threader. The fingers of each hand, minus the index finger, are placed inside the loop. The loop is twisted several times over into a bow tie shape. The twisted area of the thread in the center is placed onto the eyebrow hair that is unwanted. Working in the opposite direction of hair growth the twisted thread grips the hairs in a line as the threader’s fingers open and close. Continually placing and pulling in a line opposite hair growth precisely shapes and removes the hairs. Eyebrow threading is quick as it can remove entire rows of hair in a straight line all at once. Face threading is also done the same way.
Is Eyebrow Threading for Everyone?
While no method of hair removal suits every person, some doctors and salons recommend eyebrow threading because it is gentler to the skin than other hair removal methods such as waxing. After years of practice, the threader should be able to precisely shape and contour eyebrows with a minimum of pain and no injury to sensitive skin. People taking Accutane for acne or other problems are often proponents of the process. Anyone using medications that irritate the skin and cause heightened sensitivity such as Retin A would also benefit from eyebrow threading. Waxing could rip the skin because these medications make the skin very sensitive.
Make sure you let the practitioner know that you are on the prescribed Dermatology medication. So that they will be careful and take some precautions to make the facial or eyebrow threading gentle, safe and effective.
Threading Is Not Just for Eyebrows
Any area that needs hair removal is a good candidate for threading. Eyebrows are a popular place to thread as the line of the thread helps create a guide for shaping and aids precision. Upper lip, legs, arms and bikini line are other common places for threading. After waxing, the small left over hair will be removed with thread. The threading technique can grab any small or ingrown hair which leaves the skin hair less.
