The Art of Threading

There is always a topic that people love not to discuss in public, or even in private. We talk about weddings, pregnancies, births, and birthdays - private, intimate moments - with the world. We post photos and tell everyone how we felt and what happened in detail. Yet, when it comes to personal stuff we simply shy away. I wonder why. As women, we take care of ourselves. Not only do we put make up on, find the prettiest outfit, but we also get rid of unwanted and often ugly hair. Legs, arm, armpits, eyebrows, and yes even upper lips, chin and neck. Blond or brunette we have hair. Some of us have more, others have less. We shave, we wax, we cut and use all kinds of methods to get rid of it. We spend a ton of money on it all, too.

My personal favorite part to remove hair is the art of threading. I love it because it doesn't involve sticky wax, or endless hours of tweezing. Also, shaving isn't exactly the best idea when it comes to eyebrows, or even ridiculously unwanted upper lip hair {why or why!!}. It only involves me going to a place that threads people's hair away, and doesn't take long. In fact, it usually takes 10 - 20 minutes, costs less than $20 and doesn't have to be repeated in a few days. Sometimes, once a month is enough, sometimes once every three months works, too. I love it.

Threading is an old form of facial hair removal. It uses a 100% cotton thread which is twisted and pulled along the surface of the skin to remove unwanted hair. It lifts the hair directly from the follicle. It is a completely natural skin removal process and works on all skin types {whether you have sensitive skin, damaged, normal or tanned}. It is an art of its own and removes hairs from eyebrows, upper lip, chin, neck, and well, the face. It has become an essential part of skin care and beauty. I would never go back to tweezing unless I really absolutely have to, but we all know, this is never going to happen again. After a few times of having hair threaded away, the hair hardly grows back which is simply fantastic.

Now, I just wish threading would exist for legs. That would be the best thing ever in the entire world!! Just saying.

So, am I the only one out there that uses threading?

Tell me!!!
