What does the course involve?
Threading is an ancient method of hair removal
originating in Middle East. In more recent times
it has gained popularity in western countries,
especially with a cosmetic application
(particularly for removing/shaping eyebrows).
In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread
is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over
areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at
the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single
hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can
remove short lines of hair.
Advantages cited for eyebrow threading,
as opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it
provides more precise control in shaping
eyebrows and is gentler on the skin. There are
a few different techniques for threading. These
include the hand method, mouth method and
neck. Each technique has advantages and
disadvantages; however, you will be taught the
hand method on this short course giving you
the precise and hygienic skills.
Upon completion of the course you will be able
to thread the upper lip, chin, eyebrows areas
nishing with professional aftercare and advice.
