Eyebrow threading is a depilation technique which originated in
India, although it is also widely practiced in the Middle East. Salons
in Western nations offered the service to Middle Eastern clients for
decades before European and American women became interested and the
popularity of eyebrow threading skyrocketed.
The hair removal technique is not just for
the eyebrows: threading can be used to remove other facial and body hair
as well.Eyebrow threading involves twisting a piece of thread, usually
cotton, into a double strand.
This double stranded thread is used to pick up
a line of hair and then remove it, creating a very clean, precise
hairline. Eyebrow threading is the technique preferred by Indian movie
stars, who are often distinguished by their crisp brow lines. Eyebrow
threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the
eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow.Because it removes hair
by the follicle, it is a reasonably long lasting hair removal technique
