Weaving a History of Threading

Originally a street art form, it is believed that threading originated in India over 6000 years ago and spread throughout Asia, the Middle East and in recent times Europe and other Western countries. Over the last decade, threading has gained in popularity in the United States.

Threading is not just for the eyebrows. It can be used to remove other facial and body hair as well. Originally, it was done when a woman was getting married or for special occasions. In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and became a woman.

Threading involves twisting a piece of thread, usually cotton or a poly-cotton mix, into a double strand. This double-stranded thread is used to pick up a line of hair or individual hair and then remove it, creating a very clean, precise hairline.

Eyebrow threading can be used to define brow lines, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow. Because it removes hair by the follicle, it is a reasonably long lasting hair removal technique. Repeat visits after three to four weeks are standard. For women who prefer a more natural beauty regimen, eyebrow threading is a good choice, since it does not use harmful products.
