How to Thread Your Eyebrows: Beauty Maven Eily

Threading has long been popular in many Arab countries, and was well known from Indian and Persian culture, where it is known as Bande Abru (“Abru” means eyebrow, and “Band” is the thread). Threading the entire face is widely practised amongst Iranians, but it was originally only done when a woman was getting married or for special occasions. In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and become a woman.

Practitioners use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and other areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line. As a larger area of hair is removed at once, however, it can be relatively painful.

Watch Beauty Maven Eily show you how it’s done.
