How to Do Threading on Facial Hair in 6 Simple Steps
Today I am showing you how to do threading on facial hair. Threading is literally removing facial hair with a standard piece of cotton thread. It is a super easy and cost-effective method of hair removal!
Tools and materials:
- Cotton thread
1. Make the thread loop
Make a loop with the thread about the size that I am doing as pictured and cut.
2. Tie off the thread
Tie the ends together to create the loop.
While holding the loop in both hands, twist one hand around a few times to create a spiral in the center.
4. Learn to work the thread
Hold each side of the thread looped around each hand.
As you open one hand wide, the spiral will move to the other side.
If you open and close your hands quickly, the spiral will move back and forth quickly.
This quick movement of the spiral is actually what will rip out your facial hair.
5. Threading eyebrows
Align the thread along the shape of your eyebrow and then open your hand to move the spiral and rip out your hair.
The great thing about threading is that it makes your eyebrows into a beautiful straight line.
Repeat on the bottom of your brows.
Be more gentle on the bottom of your brows because the skin is more sensitive there.
6. Threading upper lip hair
To thread other facial hair, it's the same process as the eyebrows.
The only difference is I try to pull my skin as tight as possible to help with pain management. Do not mind my interesting facial expressions!
