Basic Guide to Eyebrow Threading

Since ancient times, eyebrow threading has been around. Historical records have shown that, since Ancient Egypt and Ancient Indian/Hindu cultures, this form of cosmetic practise has been around. Since it’s easier, it’s better than plucking, and better than waxing because the chance of burns and skin irritation is reduced. Today, since it gives a cleaner and neater look compared to plucking, threading has risen in popularity. Unfortunately, for a simple operation, some salons have this habit of charging too much. Save your money instead and with these easy steps, thread your eyebrows instead. content
Step 1: Have your brow shaped. Shaping your brow to the perfect form with the use of an eyebrow pencil. Make sure that the hair you want to thread out is not shaded so that you can see it clearly.
Step 2: Get a thread for a piece. No matter what colour it is it does not matter. The most significant thing is that it is of high quality and is not going to knot or fray. Measure about 12-18 inches of thread and use a pair of scissors to cut it neatly. You’ll be advised by other guides to cut about 24 inches, but that can be a waste of thread if you have small hands.
Phase 3: To form a full circle, knot the ends. In both hands, hold both ends, making sure you keep the knotted end near your palm. Loop it about 6-8 times, with the twisted part at the middle, until your thread assumes the shape of the bowtie. Now put your hands into it the ends of which are on your pinky finger.
Step 4: By opening and closing your hand alternately, practise pushing the twisted portion back and forth. By forming a ‘C’ with your thumb and first two fingers, move it to the left and pinch your left hand closely. By forming the same ‘C’ with your left hand and pinching your right hand tightly, shift the knot to the right.
Phase 5: Launch your brow plucking. Start with the brow that is most comfortable for you first. We’ll assume that you’re going to start with your right eyebrow for this guide. Tilt your head backward and to the left, slightly. Look at the mirror and on the lower and outer portion of your brow, put the thread knot. Angle the thread so that your brow can follow the form you want and hold the thread close to the hair, but not against the skin. By opening your right hand and closing the other, thread your brow. The thread knot should go against the growth path of the hair so that it can catch and pluck. Repeat until all the unnecessary hair is out and continue to the next eyebrow.
A word of caution: if you do this for the first time, it’s really painful, even if you’re not new to plucking eyebrows with tweezers. In an almost simultaneous way, the thread grabs and removes more hair, so proceed very slowly and carefully until your skin is desensitised.
