With just a piece of thread, you will get your desired eyebrows. Although it is not a new technique, the effect it brings is very worthy of attention.
Threading is a method of eyebrow pruning originated from India, with this method you use twisted threads to pluck your eyebrow. Threading helps to remove the smallest eyebrows, redundant eyebrows, or eyebrows growing in places that can not be plucked by hand and waxing. This technique helps create a graceful and clean eyebrow, and brows are clearly defined by eye frame.
The area around eyes is quite sensitive. Waxing contains some chemical components such as moisturizers that may affect this skin area. When using the waxing technique, the skin around eyes is stretched, a layer of skin is affected. This facilitates appearance of wrinkles around eyes, causing the skin to age.
Meanwhile, using threading in eyebrow shaping makes the area around the eyes less reddened and smoother. Therefore, eyebrow threading is a great option for people with sensitive skin or those being allergic to depilatory or waxing medications.
Steps of eyebrows threading as follows:
First you will need to prepare a piece of sewing thread. Then tie it in a knot to make a loop.
Before shaving your eyebrows with a piece of thread, shape your eyebrows to match your face and preferences. There is a suggestion for you: curved eyebrows fit the square face, bow-shaped eyebrows fit the round face, and horizontal eyebrows are perfect choice for long face.
After shaping the appropriate eyebrows, you cross the two part of the thread together into the number 8. Next, twist your fingers a few more times in the same direction to keep shape of the thread.
Put your index finger and thumb inside both ends of the 8-shaped thread.
You keep the fingers of one hand pinched together while opening the fingers of the other hand. This will make the twisted part of the thread over slide. When the thread moves, it will pull hair out.
You should be sure you pluck the hair in the opposite direction of the way it grows.
Put one hand above your brow and another below. To move the twisted part of the thread, you use the hand below your brow.
The hair needed to pull out is placed in the ‘V’ part of the thread.
Move the twist over the hair by opening fingers on hand below brow. The hair is caught in this twist and will be pulled out. It will work easier and be painless when you do this movement quickly.
Redo the twist in the middle of thread and repeat step 4 over again until get the eyebrow as your expectation
