Learn these tricky but helpful eyebrow threading steps

Eyebrow threading is  a two-person sport, there’s always you and the other is pro! The pro that can use a thread to perform the complex art of pulling out tiny hairs out from your face, mostly  at a rapid speed. You must have noticed very few You Tube videos are available for DIY Eyebrows which shows its complexity. Threading can seem complicated, but if you learn from an experienced professional who can break down each step, I can guarantee you can get the hang of it. 

Keeping in mind the lockdown situation, one cannot decide to go for salon just for a small work of threading. No way! I am sure you all will prefer doing at home. Here we have gathered simple steps of threading which you can easily try out at home. 

Use of 100% cotton thread

It’s important to make sure that the thread that’s being used is 100% cotton and it’s strong enough to remove even the coarsest hair without breaking, but typically isn’t strong enough to nip or cut the skin the way a cotton-blend thread could.

Step-by-step Tutorial

Step 1: Cut a piece of sewing thread about 11inches long (you can take a longer length too). Make a knot of the thread.

Step 2: Insert two fingers from both hands into the loop. Make sure the knot is not visible due to your fingers.

Step 3: Twist the fingers on one hand to make an 'X'. Twist your fingers a few more times in the same direction (about 4 twists will be enough).

Step 4 :Without losing the grip, place your index finger and thumb inside the loop. If the grip is loosen, then repeat step 3.

Step 5: Gripping of the thread; 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. (kind of like when you rub a rubber band over your arm and it pulls out your hair...actually it hurts like that too when you are removing multiple hairs such as your upper lip). Remember to pull out the hair in the opposite direction of its growth.

Moving forward, place one hand above your brow and the other below. The hand that will be used to move the twisted part of the thread will be the hand below the brows.

Step 6: Keep the v-shape of the thread where unwanted hairs are. Open fingers on hand below brow to move the twist over the hair. The hair gets caught in the twist and THUS will be pulled out!!! Do this movement fast. It will work easier and be painless.

Step 7: Open the fingers of the other hand to place the twist back in the middle. 

You have now got cleaned eyebrows. I would suggest to practice the movements first, alternating each hand’s fingers to work into play.
