Threading is an ancient hair removal method that has been in practice for
centuries. Threading is an excellent way to keep your upper lip and chin free of
unwanted facial hair. Threading can be done for almost all skin types, even if you
have sensitive skin. Threading is a better alternative when compared to options like
waxing, as it does not remove a layer of skin.
Inexpensive, fast, neat, considered less painful, less red
skin than plucking for many. Good for eyebrows and
facial hair and ingrown hairs.
The practitioner holds one end of the cotton thread in his or her teeth and the
other in the left hand. The middle is looped through the index and middle fingers of
the right hand. The practitioner then uses the loop to trap a series of unwanted
hairs and pull them from the skin.
Trained threading practitioners can perform the procedure at an extremely rapid
rate, and for many people, threading is less painful than waxing or plucking.
