Threading is an ancient manual technique to remove hair using a loop of twisted antibacterial thread to trap the unwanted hair and pull from the root. It is used to give a much more defined appearance to the eyebrows, creating a bold natural shape. Threading can also be used on other areas of the face as an alternative to wax on skins that are heat sensitive or irritated by wax. It is becoming more and more popular in the UK as a hygienic treatment suitable for almost all skins. Re-growth is approximately 2-4 weeks depending on the individual and regular threading leads to finer re-growth.
