The Advantages of Eyebrow Threading....

I am sure some of us have not heard of this traditional method of hair removal using a strand of cotton thread. This method is said to originate from India and is much practice in the middle eastern countries and is also gaining popularity in the West. The way it works is by twisting a double stranded cotton thread around the hairs on the outer surface of the skin. Once the hairs are skilfully woven into the thread, they are then pull out.

I had my first experience of this method of hair removal to my eyebrows two days ago at a beauty shop in Penang Street. It was really wonderful the way my eyebrows were shape to a neat arch without much discomfort. I felt a slight pain but it was fast and quick. So much better than using a tweezer which takes up a long time. The Indian beautician took less than 10 minutes to shape my eyebrows and she charged me for only rm 5. The advantages of eyebrow threading is the fact that it last longer than other methods of hair removal, usually 3 to 4 weeks and also through this method you can easily get the precise shape that you wanted. Here are some pics i took while my niece and I had our eyebrows touch up.

I like your Header title very meaningful..I think I hear of thread plucking eyesbrow b4 but never try b4..How long it's take?

nightwing - just a few seconds of slight pain that could not be notice once the hairs are removed...I think the degree of pain depends on the skills of the beautician...this girl is really fast with her work...I am very sensitive to pain but still do not find it that painful..
