WHAT IS THREADING?

In threading, a thin, cotton thread specially designed for threading is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.

Advantages cited for eyebrow threading, as opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is more gentle on the skin. Because several follicles are removed at once, it can be painful, though a columnist has declared that when done professionally "with a cat's cradle of fine thread" it can be quick and painless. Also known as Epilation.

METHODS & PRODUCTS WE USE

Here are details about the most popular methods of epilation:

  • Tweezing - This is done with use of a tweezer. This can be a lengthy process as you individually pluck or pull out each hair. Plucking hairs can keep hairs longer from growing back than from shaving.
  • Waxing - This is when a hot or cold layer is applied and then removed with porous strips. Waxing is the most effective method of removing unwanted hair in both large and small areas. Hair can be removed with a minimum amount of discomfort which is always nice.
  • Threading aka fatlah or khite - when a twisted thread catches hairs as it's rolled across the skin. Threading removes unwanted facial hair from skin that's too sensitive for laser or waxing. It plucks hair at the root by using a twisted piece of thread. There is little to no pain involved.
  • Rotary epilators - these are devices which rapidly grasp hairs and pull them out by the root
