A BRIEF HISTORY OF WAXING AND THREADING
Let's begin in Ancient Egypt
Now let's move to India and Central Asia and the Origin of THREADING!
Threading involves very simple (and low cost) materials. 2 pieces of cotton string! By twisting the string (like the photo below), the hair is pulled out right at the root. With this specific technique of hair removal, it’s really easy to define shape and really be precise. It’s a true art form!
The Two Techniques - What's the Difference?
Well, it may seem to go without saying, but it's worth mentioning that the main difference is waxing involves... wax, whereas threading involves... thread. With waxing, the wax hardens and attaches to the hair follicle, and once the wax is removed (ripped off your skin so help me god), the hair will go with it.
When it comes to threading, the hair becomes trapped between the two pieces of cotton and once it's twisted, the hair will be completely removed - it's a really fascinating technique.
There are benefits of both techniques, and it basically comes down to personal choice based on the technique you prefer. Both are effective and widely used, and this is why threading and waxing services are a fantastic addition to any salon/beauty service!
