Threading is an all natural, gentle method of accurately removing unwanted hair for people of all skin types, especially for those with sensative skin. It can be performed on any area of the face including the eyebrows, the upper lip, chin & side burns. Some people also like to have the hair on their hands and fingers threaded. This method of hair removal is considered to be less painful, more precise and longer lasting than waxing.

History of Eyebrow Threading
The history of threading is not clear, some claim that it began in Turkey and the others say it is from India, spread to the Middle and Far East. Now it is becoming popular in Western countries such as USA, Spain, UK, Brazil and Canada. In Arabic language it is called khite. In Arab countries, both men and women use this method, although the men usually just do their eyebrows with thread.
It is also popular in Persian(Iranian) culture where it is called Bande Abru (“Abru” means eyebrow and “Band” is the thread). Threading the entire face is widely spread among Iranians, but it was originally practiced when a woman was getting married or during special occasions.
In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and become a woman. But nowadays all the women and girls like to do that. Threading is one of the essential in their skin care and beauty.
