In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over 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 short lines of hair.
Advantages cited for eyebrow threading, as opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is more gentle on the skin.
Most people believe threading originated in India over 6000 years ago and spread throughout Asia, the middle east and in recent times Europe. The Arabic word for threading is ‘Khite’; in Egypt it is also called ‘Fatlah’. Threading the entire face is widely practiced 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 became a woman.
