What is Threading?
Threading is a type of hair removal that originated in India, Iran, and central Asia. Threading practitioners use a twisted cotton thread to remove several hairs at a time. It is mostly used for hair removal on the face, including eyebrows, upper lip, chin, and cheeks. Though threading works on larger areas, this isn’t a common hair removal treatment for arms, legs and the bikini line because it takes too much time. However, you can use threading to tidy up a small area of the bikini line.
Threading requires a lot more skill than tweezing or waxing so it’s not a home treatment. Typically, threading happens in a spa or salon with a certified esthetician, trained in this technique.
