What is Threading?

Eyebrow threading is a hair removal technique that was developed in Southeast Asia and the Middle East centuries ago. The idea is to remove multiple hairs in a line, row-by-row, to shape facial hair. Keep in mind though that while it may be tempting, threading leg, arm, head, and bikini area hair is not recommended because that hair tends to be a bit thicker and harder to pull.

How Does Threading Work?

It’s a fairly simple and quick process. You sit down in a chair and stare at the ceiling as an esthetician takes a thin cotton or polyester thread, doubles it, and twists it. As they move their hands, the threads grab unwanted hairs in between the openings and pull them free—including the roots.
