|Threading is an ancient method of hair removal originating in the Eastern world. In more recent times it has gained popularity in Western countries. Threading the entire face is widely practised amongst Iranians, but it was originally only done when a woman was getting married or for special occasions.
In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and become a woman. Practitioners use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and other 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 an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line.
One of the best methods of upper lip hair removal is threading. Threading removes the tiniest and finest hair right from the root. Threading is one of the oldest methods of body hair removal. Primarily, threading is done on the entired face, including eyebrows and upper lip mostly but at times, chin, forehead, sideburns and cheeks.
