Eyebrow threading sounds very painful, but is about the same as brow waxing and is not hard on your skin. Threading your eyebrows gives you a better result than waxing or plucking because it pulls an entire row of hair from the follicle to achieve a more straight-looking line of hair. Threading is an ancient form of hair removal used in Israel and the Middle East and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Extremely precise, it boasts the same long lasting results as tweezing and waxing (with less pain, say some eyebrow shaping veterans).
Eyebrow threading is very precise and allows specialists to have greater control than waxing, resulting in a better eyebrow shape for you.
A piece of 100% cotton thread is used. 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 centre of the string.
