Everyone knows that getting rid of unwanted hair on the face is a challenge. Threading is a great way to do that. Threading is a form of hair removal that is most commonly performed on the face, however, it can be used on other areas of the body as well.
Women who have some unwanted hair on their face or body can find threaded eyebrows an easy way to remove that hair. However, do you know how to thread eyebrows? If you’ve never tried this process before, it can be a bit intimidating. There are so many different types of threading—and so many different ways to do it—that it can be hard to know where to begin.
This article will walk you through what to expect during and after your threading experience, as well as detail some of the most important things you should know about threading your eyebrows.
How To Thread Eyebrows For Beginners
- Prepare your eyebrows by trimming them.
- Purchase a pair of threading needles. They are often sold in pairs, one needle for each eyebrow.
- Obtain a pair of disposable gloves to protect your hands from the threading needles while they are being used on you. Make sure that the gloves fit correctly around your hands and arms so that they do not slip off during the procedure and injure you in any way.
- The first step in threading is to take care of any unwanted hair on your face or body, if you have any, by using tweezers or a depilatory cream to remove any stray hairs from the area before beginning the process of threading. This is optional, but it can help make the process easier for you if you do this beforehand.
- Wash and dry your face before starting the process of threading eyebrows because it will make it easier to apply the threads without getting them tangled or caught up in your facial hair.
- The second step in threading is to remove any excess hair from your face and the area around it, which will help make the process much easier. This can be done by using a depilatory cream or just by applying lotion to the area.
- Once you have removed all of your unwanted facial hair or body hair, you are ready to begin threading. Place one needle in each hand with the sharp end facing upwards so that they are ready for use on your eyebrows.
- Hold both needles at a 45-degree angle and place them above where you want to begin threading—the arch of your eyebrow—on each side of your face and below where you want to finish threading—the end of your eyebrow—on each side of your face.
What Is Threading?
- Threading is a type of eyebrow trimming that uses thin, flexible threads to remove hair from the face. The process is painless and does not involve any chemicals or medical instruments.
- Threading has been around for thousands of years. It originated in India, where it was used to remove unwanted facial hair and eyebrows. Today, it is a popular form of beauty treatment that is used by millions worldwide.
- Threading works by gently pulling or plucking hairs out of the root with one or more thin threads without causing any pain or discomfort to the client. It can be performed at home on oneself or by a professional in a salon setting (more on this later).
