Hair Threading: Why You Should Try It


Hair threading has stood the test of time, being passed down through the generations. The process uses a cotton string using a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso that pulls up each hair right out of the follicle as it passes along the skin. This option provides quite the advantage over many other hair removal methods, you might just want to try it.

Waxing, a very popular professional option for shaping brows can leave people red, inflamed and even scabby either because of the ingredients or pulling on the skin too much. Threading hardly touches the skin, and uses no chemicals whatsoever.

If those short hairs left on your eyebrows had you going crazy after a waxing or a tweezing, we have good news. If you can feel the hair, threading can remove it. A great technique for getting that defined brow look, just like Aishwarya Rai.

A threading salon will charge anywhere about $12 - $50 for eyebrows, and is generally less than a professional waxing or sugaring. But many women do threading out of their home, charging as little as $5 for eyebrows and $2 for a lip.
