How Threading Works

Threading basically involves twisting a thread and creating a trap. The hairs are then caught and removed by the root. The rapid back-and-forth movement of the thread removes the unwanted hairs efficiently and quickly.

Threading is so precise that even a single hair can be easily removed.

You may wonder why threading is so popular. Well, there are several reasons:

It’s very cheap – It will cost you less than a Sandwich
It’s very fast – You will be in and out of the salon in no time
It’s very neat – There are no messy creams or waxes involved
It’s long-lasting – The results can last from two to four weeks

Background of Threading
The process of threading hair originated from India. However, you will find conflicting views all over the Internet regarding its origin. Some people claim that threading started in Turkey, some say in the Middle East, whilst others state that it originated in Egypt.

Regardless of where it originated, threading has become a mainstream treatment option that is currently available in every major town and city throughout Western civilisation.

Do you agree? :slight_smile:

Is the thread ALWAYS held in the mouth of the practitioner who is performing threading? This should be a concern to consumers, since saliva carries pathogens…

The part that touches the hair and skin doesn’t touch the mouth.

Threading is just another form of pulling the hair out with the root. It’s not permanent. It’s just a different way of waxing basically.

Threading with two hands can be done. No mouth involved. This method is more common in my culture.

Yes can be done with no mouth involved!

As LAgirl said, the bit of string placed in the mouth does not come into contact with the customer. There’s not really any reason to have a concern about hygiene just because there’s no contact with the saliva. They mostly hold it between their teeth as a brace.
