What is eyebrow threading?
Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair removal technique used by women to remove unwanted hair. The technique uses a twisted piece of thread to remove rows of hair in a surprisingly precise way. Using the fingers the twist created on the thread will move up and down, catching the hairs in it's path and plucking them out.

Why eyebrow threading?
Choosing the right eyebrow hair removal technique depends on each persons preference and sensitivity. Some women are allergic to wax so eyebrow threading offers a less painful option than tweezing. Opposite to tweezing the eyebrows by plucking one hair at a time, eyebrow threading helps remove an entire row of hairs at once. This will ensure a quicker hair removal with less pain. Eyebrow threading helps remove the hairs in a very precise way and helps create lovely arched eyebrows.

Most cosmetologists agree that eyebrow threading is the best temporary eyebrow hair removal technique out of waxing and tweezing simply due to the fact the the skin surrounding the eye can sometimes be irritated by the warm wax and the plucking just takes longer to perform, resulting more pain to endure.
Due to it's benefits, eyebrow threading is increasing it's popularity, now being performed in certain salons in the US and Europe.

How to use the thread?
To remove unwanted hair using the eyebrow threading technique take a piece of cotton thread and pull it into a double strand tying it around the ends. The strand doesn't need to be too long a few inches should be enough. Twist the double strand thread a few times and put your thumb and index fingers from both of your hands in the ends of the thread to open up the loops. By opening opening the fingers from one hand and alternating with the other hand you will be able to move the twist formed on the thread up and down. This way the hairs will be easily removed.

Put the thread close to your eyebrows around the area which you want the hairs to be removed and open up the fingers to remove the hairs. If you are a novice take it slowly to avoid making any mistakes. If you hurry up and don't have the skill to maintain a steady hand you might ruin your eyebrows by plucking other hairs which you don't wish to remove.

How to fix any mistakes?
