Eyebrow threading is a depilation technique which originated in India and is also widely practiced in the Middle East. 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 line. Because it removes hair by the follicle, it is a reasonably long lasting technique as well. Repeat visits after two to four weeks are standard. For women who would like to pursue a more natural beauty regimen, eyebrow threading is a good choice, since it does not use harmful products or artificial chemicals.
