Eyebrow threading is similar to brow waxing. It is an inexpensive and gentle way
to shape your eyebrows without using any chemical ingredients. In fact, threading
is an ancient hair removal technique traced back to Middle East and parts of East
Asia, and is fast becoming popular in western countries.
Aside from being chemical-free and less painful, the other benefit of threading hair
removal is, it gives a better shape to your eyebrow than waxing or plucking. Threading
pulls an entire row of hair from the follicle to achieve a more straight-looking
line of hair, making your eyes look instantly bigger and naturally open up your face.
What’s more, threading is great for removing even baby fine hairs, so make up goes
on much smoother.
Learning how to thread eyebrows may sound like a daunting task for beginners, but
once you are familiar with the steps and practice often, it becomes easier the second
Before plunging right into it, I highly suggest you first figure out your face shape
in order to know what is the right brow shape for your face. The correct shape of
eyebrows will give you definition and provide an attractive frame for your face as
well as eyes.
If you have a round face shape like Kirsten Dundst and Cameron Diaz, aim for highly
arched, sharp angled brows with a short tail. What this does is to balance fullness
by making round face look longer and slimmer to give you a more flattering oval appearance
while opening up your eyes.
On the other hand, girls with long faces like Sarah Jessica Parker and Liv Tyler,
will look absolutely stunning with straight and flat brows that create an illusion
of the perfect oval face shape.
For square faces like Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie and Sandra Bullock, slightly curved
eyebrows work best to play down a strong angular jaw line.
If you are blessed with a gorgeous oval face shape similar to Ashley Judd’s and Jessica
Alba’s, any shape of eyebrows will do although soft, angled ones are exceptionally
Rounded eyebrows that a soften narrow pointy chin are recommended for heart shaped
faces like Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria and Scarlett Johansson.
Diamond shaped faces like Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna will greatly benefit from angled
brows with a slight curve to narrow the appearance of wide cheekbones while rounding
out the narrow chin.
How to Thread Eyebrow with Cotton String?
1. You need a piece of good quality 100% cotton thread or string, about 2 feet long.
Make sure you use a strong cotton thread to prevent breakage while threading.
2. Next, apply some baby powder to your eyebrows. This helps absorb any oils around
the hair follicles which may cause the hairs to slip from the thread as it is pulled.
3. Grab both ends of the thread and tie together to form a big loop. Now hold it
around your fingers. Open your hands to make a rectangle from the knotted thread.
4. Then twist the thread 10 times in the middle, putting your hands little apart
at the front, forming an X with the middle portion being twisted.
5. Extend your fingers and thumb of left hand while closing fingers and thumb in
right hand to make the twisted portion move. Repeat the process shifting it to the
opposite direction by moving your fingers and thumb vice versa. It may be a little
tricky at first, so practice this eyebrow threading step a few more times until you
get the hang of it.
6. Put the thread on your skin. Make sure the twisted portion is close to the unwanted
hairs you want to remove. Then slowly roll it against your skin shifting from side
to side, from left to right, until the hair is trapped by the thread. Now, gently
pull the thread to pluck stray hairs by the roots.
7. Always start threading the lower area of your eyebrow first, then the center and
lastly, the top of your eyebrow. Don’t worry too much if you make a mistake because
you can always use an eyebrow pencil to fix any problems while your eyebrow grows
However, it’s a good idea to practise threading hair removal on an inconspicuous
area such as your legs otherwise you may end up with uneven brows, ingrown hairs
and not to mention, unnecessary pain.
Move on to your face, upper lips or eyebrows when you’re more confident.
8. Don’t forget to apply a mild skin toner or rose water after that. This simple
yet often-neglected step not only help reduce unsightly skin redness, but will also
help close pores after threading to avoid infection.
