This ancient art originated in India and has been passed on for decades as a completely natural method of removing unwanted facial hair.

Threading works by pulling a cotton thread along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, lifting the hair right out of the follicle.

As there are no chemicals or hot waxes applied to the skin and nothing but the thread touches the skin, reactions are fewer, making it suitable for sensitive skin.

Used on brows, it creates a very neat line and is quicker than tweezing.

Used on the sensitive upper lip area, there is less redness than with waxing.

Threading can be used anywhere on the face.
