Take a look at these steps to learn how to thread eyebrows:
Measure thread up to 15 to 20 inches and cut. After cutting, tie a knot to join the two ends together. Knot the thread at least three times.
Once the ends are together, stretch out the thread into a rectangle shape as seen below. Make sure to get your fingers in there, with your nail pointing upwards.
With one hand, turn the thread over to make an X in the middle. Once you’ve made an X, rotate it again. How do you know which hand to turn over? This will be the hand that will perform the threading, which is usually your dominant hand.
Apply loose powder on your eyebrows or on the area you wish to thread. Use compact powder because the hair will stick to the thread more securely.
Locate the hair you want to remove and go against the direction of where the hair is growing. Adjust your designated moving hand into the position seen below and start threading. Open and close your hand to thread.
Once you’re done threading all the unwanted eyebrow hair, trim the eyebrows with small scissors to achieve a more defined shape.
When you’re finished threading your brows, apply astringent.
Before & After
And that, my friend, is how you thread your eyebrows. Pretty neat, huh? But do be warned, make sure to practice the threading process first before you thread your eyebrows. Otherwise, you might make an irreversible mistake that you won’t be able to change for at least two to three weeks until the hair grows out again. Also, do note that eyebrow threading can be a bit painful too, but, obviously, the results are very rewarding!
