  • Threading is an ancient method of hair removal that has gained much popularity for hair removal and shaping of eyebrows.
  • In threading, a thin thread is doubled and then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level.
  • Advantages often cited for eyebrow threading are that it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is gentler on the skin.
  • Threading is available at the Livingston Rec Center and the Cook/Douglas Rec Center.
