In threading, a 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 the hairs are plucked out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair all at once. Threading can provide more precise control in shaping eyebrows, and is gentler on the skin than methods such as waxing. At Aalok, our threading is done by skilled beauty professionals with over 10 years of experience.
