Threading is possibly the oldest technique used to get rid of unwanted facial and body hair.

It’s been used for many centuries in the Middle East and it is very popular in South Asia countries such as Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh.

Eyebrow, body and, facial threading have proved a massive hit in the Western world and is now widely available in many beauty salons across the UK. You will even find threaders in shopping center aisles and hairdressers. Many people make successful businesses providing threading alone. It’s also on the rise in popularity with men as male grooming and expression becomes more accepted. Some barbers even offer this as additional service.

What is threading?

Threading is a simple technique involving a piece of cotton thread that is looped with one end being directed by the therapist’s hand and the other in between the therapist’s teeth giving it tension. It may not seem as glamorous or hi-tech as electrolysis or laser hair removal but it is still one of the safest, quickest, most precise, and thorough forms of hair removal on the market.

Having your eyebrows done is particularly quick and easy, making it a great lunch-break appointment or even an after-work touch-up.

Many people opt for eyebrow threading over eyebrow waxing because it allows for greater precision and more accurate shaping. Whereas waxing requires the application of chemicals to the skin, threading is 100% natural – all it requires is a piece of thread and a trained therapist.
