Threading is the safest, most natural way to remove unwanted facial hair. In Persia, eyebrow threading was once performed as a sign that a young girl had transitioned into womanhood. In Iran, the practice has almost become a requirement for formal events such as weddings. Now this ancient Eastern technique is taking the world by storm and even exploding onto the Hollywood scene. Many celebrities prefer this technique to waxing and plucking, as it creates a more even and attractive arch. When you get your eyebrows threaded, a licensed cosmetologist will use a cotton thread to simultaneously twist and pull along the surface of your skin, removing several hairs quickly and efficiently.
As the thread rolls along the contours of your face, each hair follicle is lifted up and out from the root. This leaves skin smoother and softer and lengthens the time needed between treatments. And, unlike waxing and plucking, threading is far less painful. Eyebrow threading even beats over-the-counter hair removal creams as the process involves no exposure to smelly and potentially-toxic chemicals.
