Eyebrow threading is a depilation technique which originated in India, although it is also widely practiced in the Middle East.
Eyebrow threading is a practice that has been around for centuries. This procedure is used for eyebrow shaping as well as removing hair from the cheeks, upper lip, and chin. Some men use this procedure to remove the hair from between their eyebrows or to remove facial hair in the beard and mustache area.
Threading Eyebrow’s has positive and beautiful results. These results include cleaner and straighter lines, balanced facial features and often lift the eyes. Eyebrow threading is very precise for an eyebrow shape that frames your face.
Threading is done in salons with one simple tool. This tool is a piece of one hundred percent cotton thread. One end of the thread is held between the teeth or is anchored around the neck of the beautician and the other end is held firmly with the left hand. The index and middle fingers of the right hand then form a loop in the center of the string. Some beauticians will apply baby powder to the eyebrows before they begin. The baby powder will absorb any oils around the hair follicles that may cause the hairs to slip from the thread as it is pulled.
The thread is then rolled over the surface of the skin collecting the hairs as it moves. The thread is then used to lift the hairs out by the root. This procedure does involve a small amount of pain. The amount of pain will vary from person to person. Many people find that this is the best way to get a great arch to their eyebrow. Because threading is so effective in removing even baby find hairs, make up goes on much smoother.
Eyebrow threading reduces the irritation often accompanied with other procedures. Excessive tugging and pulling by tweezers can lead to an earlier onset of wrinkles. Some people will experience some irritation and redness but these discomforts disappear quickly compared to waxing and tweezing.
Threading is something that is not easily done at home. Look for a beautician that has experience when choosing someone to work on your eyebrows or other facial hair. A good beautician can give you perfectly shaped brows in little time with relatively little pain.
