The origins of threading came to us from the eastern cultures and is believed to have started in Turkey or possibly India . It has popularity in Indian and Persian cultures and goes far back into their history. In Iran it has become almost a ceremonial requirement for special occasions like weddings. In Persia, eye brow threading was performed as a sign that that a young girl had made the transition to becoming a woman. We may never know that actual country of origin since many of these cultures exchanges ideas early in their history. There were trading routes that carried goods and cultural exchange throughout much of the East.
The benefit of threading that most sets it apart from other hair removal techniques is its precision. While waxing and plucking can often leave unwanted stray hairs around your eyebrows, a threading artist goes through your hair row by row, giving eyebrows a clean and defined shape. Threading only removes hair, not skin, and because it is so exact, it can remove hairs that are finer than those that can be removed by waxing or plucking
Threading involves the practitioner rolling twisted cotton threads over hairlines to remove unwanted hair. To do this, the practitioner holds one end of a cotton thread between her teeth and the other in her left hand. The middle part of the thread is looped through the index and middle fingers of the right hand. The loop is used to trap unwanted hair so that it can be easily plucked from the skin. This is a difficult technique that takes practitioners many months to perfect. Do not attempt to try this at home.
Threading is also very fast — sessions will only take about 15 minutes of your time, and sometimes even less. It’s also relatively inexpensive. Different practitioners have varying rates, but threading generally costs about the same as plucking and waxing.

Threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow. Irritation, skin rashes or excessive redness are avoided with threading, however the skin may get slightly reddish for a few minutes.
Threading is much kinder to the skin and is considerably less painful than other methods of hair removal.· Threading lifts the hair from the follicle, therefore if it is done on a regular basis, it weakens the hair follicle so hair growth becomes less dense over time, and new hair will grow finer and sparser. Re-growth is between 2-4 weeks, depending on hair growth.
