This is a procedure that removes eyebrow hair through the manipulation of threads. It is an ancient technique from India.
Short lines of hair are removed by a pair of threads crossed over each other and twisted and rolled at angles to the face. It allows for closer definition and shaping than plucking. If done expertly the pain level is low.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A discussion about the amount of hair to be removed and the shape desired should precede any threading session. Then expect to sit in a tilted chair and the therapist to stand over you. An over-the-counter painkiller can be taken before the appointment if desired, to help minimise the pain.
Well-defined and well-shaped eyebrows.
It can be painful.
