Eyebrows together with legs and bikini areas are one of the most important concerns of women. Women already know the two common techniques of waxing or the simple well-known tweezers to remove the excess of hair in eyebrow. But what if a “new” method arrived from the far land of India? This new technique is so called threading and it is actually a very ancient eyebrow removal method. It might sound new to you, but this new (at least in our country) eyebrow technique is gaining more and more popularity in western countries. In fact, the origin of the threading goes back over 6000 years. From India, it spread thru Asia, Middle East and in modern times in Europe. In each of these continents has different names, but the technique is still the same!
The success of this new method is explained because it gives a perfect hair removal and it also provides perfect eyebrows shapes.
The threading technique involves only a simple material: a thin cotton or polyester thread, as the name of the technique suggests. The cotton will be doubled and then twisted. Then, the expert hands of a cosmetician will roll over the areas of hairs that the person desires to remove. Thank to this technique the hair will be plucked out directly from the follicle and not cut out like in other eyebrow techniques. Although it seems a very simple way to remove hairs, the threading has several advantages compared to the two above-mentioned “old” techniques.
Tweezers are the most common and widely used technique to remove eyebrows’ hairs. It is simple and, thus, all women can do it at home! However, compared the evergreen tweezers, the threading can eliminate more hairs at the same time. In fact, with tweezers it is possible to pull only one hair at the time, while the threading can eliminate lines of hairs!! In addition, the threading offers more precision compared and less pain to the client.
If you believe that wax is the right solution since it can pull out more hairs at the same time, you might need to take into consideration other key factors. In fact, threading is much more delicate to the skin. As a consequence, the client experiment less irritation and discomfort. This is especially important for those people who have very sensitive or dry skin and, therefore, eyebrow might cause serious damages to their skins. In addition, threading offers more control and therefore the shape of the eyebrow can be bettered defined and outlined. Thanks to the precision of this techniques, makeup artists prefer this eyebrow method since it gives a better look to the entire eye.
In addition, the threading is completely natural and therefore there are no chemicals or artificial ingredients that you might find in the wax.
