Eyebrow Threading Instructions
To begin with you would need a cotton thread and a skin toner. Now let’s start.
Cut a piece of cotton thread in way that you get a 24-inch strand. Follow this up with tying the ends in such a way that a circle is formed.
Coil the thread around all the fingers and thumb of both the hands and then open them. Then, using your fingers and thumb, transform the circle of the thread into a rectangle in front of you.
Around the center twist the thread approximately 10 times. Now with your hands in front of you and apart, the string should look something like the alphabet ‘X’ with the center being the twisted portion.
The twisted portion of the thread must be pushed to the right by the extension of the thumb and fingers of your left hand. Simultaneously, close the fingers of your right hand to the thumb.
Repeat the earlier step by switching hands. Do this till you attain an ease in doing this.
Position the thread on the skin while ensuring that the twisted portion of the thread is just to the side of the hair you want to get rid of. Follow this by gently moving the twisted part of the thread along the skin in a sideways motion in order to capture the hair. The sideways motion could either be left or right, which ever way you are more comfortable. Once you trap the hair in that twist, just pull them out.
