EYEBROW THREADING PROCEDURE
Step 1 - The practitioner holds one end of the cotton thread in the mouth, forms a loop with the right hand and holds the long end of the thread with the left hand. The loop is placed on a hair and tightened with both hands, thus pulling it out from the roots.
Step 2 - The thread is twisted and pulled along the area of chosen unwanted hair. The thread acts like a mini-lasso and lifts the hair follicles directly from the roots.
Step 3 - Lower area of the eyebrow is threaded first then the centre and upper section of the eyebrows are completed.
Step 4 - After shaping the eyebrows, your face is wiped with dry cotton to remove any superfluous hair fallen on the skin. An astringent is applied to reduce any redness of the skin
