What is Threading?
Threading is an Asian art of hair removal, which is growing to be very popular in London and New York. It is a technique for removing hair from the roots, mostly on the face. Threading is very popular for eyebrow shaping since it leaves a very defined and sleek shape.
A 100% cotton thread is twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin, entwining the hairs in the thread, which are then lifted out from the follicle. This may sound painful, yet it is smooth and gentle and definitely not as painful as waxing!
In fact, this technique gives your face clean lines and your eyebrows an incomparable stunning shape.
The Advantages of Threading
Threading should not cause breakouts, redness or pigmentation.
Ingrown hairs are almost impossible since the threads removes each and every hair from the roots. This is fantastic for those who have sensitive skin!
Threading is very hygienic, as a new thread is used every time. If you have your facial hair threaded consistently, the hair follicle will weaken and become less dense. Eventually there is a reduction in, or no hair growth. Waxing can peel or burn the top layer of your facial skin, and over time it can result in the skin loosening and developing wrinkles; threading avoids these side effects and is therefore best used for facial hair removal.
