Some people believe that threading originated in Middle East and some believe it is originated in India. Regardless of where it is originated, eyebrow threading became popular in Western cultures just in recent years.
Threading starts with a simple cotton thread but it takes years to master it. The length of twisted thread is what pulls the hair from the skin and it is able to remove the finest hair resulting a smooth clean finish. The precision and definition of threading makes it particularly suitable to give defined shape to eyebrows.
Although eyebrow threading is very popular, threading can be used all over the face to remove any unwanted facial hair including upper lips, chin, sideburns, neck, and forehead.
Threading is perfect for those with sensitive skin as it is 100% natural with no chemicals involved. Eyebrow threading is preferred by many over the waxing as applying hot wax directly to the delicate skin around eye and stretching the skin by the wax, facilitates development of wrinkles and might lead to burning the top layer of skin. Threading and specifially eyebrow threading has less contact with skin and less redness of the skin afterwards.
