Get Perfectly Shaped Eyebrows Without Tweezers
Perfectly shaped eyebrows can transform the way you look. There are many ways to get the kind of eyebrows you have always wanted, but one that is gaining more and more popularity these days is threading. Threading is a technique that comes from India and that has been around for a very long time, but it has recently become one that many salons offer all over the world. If you are not sure if threading is the right option for you, we have broken down the process so that you can feel more comfortable doing it yourself or having an expert do it for you.
The first thing you need to do is to get a piece of cotton or polyester thread. This can be any type, though the cotton ones tend to be easier to maneuver. Tie it to create a loop and trim the ends of the knot off. Take the time to also brush your eyebrows, since you need to be able to see all of the hairs as well as possible.
Take the loop of thread and twist it into an “X”. Repeat this ten times. This helps create what you will use to pluck hair, called a shuttle. Before you begin, take the time to practice opening the shuttle with one hand while closing it with the other. It creates a scissoring motion that will make it possible to pluck from all angles. To begin plucking, hold your hands with your fingers turned away from your face as you place the thread on one eyebrow. You want to thread in the opposite direction in which the hair grows to have the most success.
