Eyebrow threading is an ancient hair-removal technique, practiced for centuries among the most beautiful women of Asia and the Middle East. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair. Threading allows for a more defined and precise shapes and can create better definition for eyebrows. It is also used as a method of removing unwanted hair on the entire face and upper lip area.
