The art of eyebrow threading is a very old beauty technique. In a nut shell, it involves removing hair with thread. Some say it originated in the Middle East, others think it started in India. Either way, it’s a pretty cool concept, but a little tricky to master.
This Instructable will help you on your quest of learning how to thread eyebrows.
Step 1 :
First you will need to cut a piece of sewing thread about 27 cm long (if you have big hands/fingers then you might need a longer piece of thread).
Then tie the thread in a knot to make a loop.
Step 2 :
Insert two fingers from both hands into the loop. Make sure to keep the knot on your fingers to keep it hidden.
Twist the fingers on one hand to make an ‘X’.
Twist your fingers a few more times in the same direction (about 4 twists should be enough).
Step 3 :
Now, place your index finger and thumb inside the loop (make sure you don’t lose the shape of the thread or you’ll have to repeat step 2).
Keep the fingers of one hand pinched together while you open the fingers of the other hand. This will slide the twisted part of the thread over. This movement is how the thread grips the hair and pulls it out.
