The science of beautification has been derived from many years of experimentation. It has resulted in the production of many different methods for refining and enhancing certain parts of the body, including eyebrow shapes. One such method is called threading; a method for removing unwanted hair. It’s not new and is very popular in countries like India and Middle East but it has not been acknowledged in the western world for all that long.
Threading is typically used to shape eyebrows, though it does have other uses too. The perfect shaping of an eyebrow can help speak volumes about the individual and can certainly help draw attention to the eyes like nothing else. This desire to have perfect eyebrows has been the catalyst for many inventions to help define the perfect shape.
The ancient method of threading has been used and trusted by Asian women for ages to enhance their beauty. It is only fairly recently that the western world has caught up and has started to see the benefits of this method.
As the name suggests, this method uses a cotton thread for removing the hair. The practitioner twists 2 cotton threads together and then drags this over the hairs to be removed. The hairs that become entangled in the twisted thread are the ones that get extracted.
Once the technique is perfected, it is very easy to sculpt the eyebrow shape by dragging the thread in the arc that is required. Taking a small amount of hair each time, the shape slowly becomes apparent. The practitioner can slowly develop the shape and seek approval from the client as they progress. Once the ideal shape has been acquired the second eyebrow can be shaped to match. The results obtained through threading are extraordinary. Women in Asian and Arabic cultures wouldn’t have persisted with such a method had it not been effective.
Like the other epilation techniques (i.e. those that pull hairs), threading can cause some discomfort. However, the eyebrow shapes you can get are probably worth the effort.
In the western world tweezing the eyebrow is still very much in fashion and it is loved by many women worldwide. However, it is not perfect and does have its drawbacks. It is time consuming and it is easy to make mistakes. To get it right you do need to practice and perfect the art. There’s no doubt that it is easy to remove hairs using tweezers, however it is the shape which is hard to perfect as you typically only pull one hair at once.
