What is Oriental threading?
Oriental hair removal by threading is an art: it is a technique that requires dexterity and experience and is an alternative to waxing and tweezing. Originating thousands of years ago in Egypt, this technique is more accurate and less invasive than waxing or tweezing: It does not stain or irritate the skin, cause reddening or break hairs, and guarantees slower regrowth.
How does the Oriental threading technique work?
You need to double a thread and twist it several times. The twisted thread is rolled over the skin to be treated, entwining the hairs in the thread and removing them from the root— even the tiniest hairs. There are several ways to perform the technique: my advice is to learn from a specialist teacher.
