Hair Removal

Excavations of Egyptian tombs indicate that abrasive materials such as pumice stones were used by women to rub away hair.

The ancient method of hair removal known as threading was invented in Japan. It is also known as banding; which is when cotton thread is twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin, entwining hair in the thread and lifting it out of the follicle. Threading is a common practice in Middle Eastern cultures today. There are two main techniques: hand and mouth threading, using both hands and the mouth to hold onto the thread; and two-handed threading, using just the hands. The third technique uses the neck intead of the mouth to hold and maneuever the piece of thread. Threading is a fast, inexpensive method of hair removal and requires minimal products and supplies. The thread is discarded after use, so it is more sanitray than waxing. A clean thread is used and the skin is prepared as it is for waxing. The thread is 24- to 30 inches long. The ends of the thread are tied together to form a loop. The middle is twisted and captures the hair inside the two twisted threads. The hair only needs to be 1/16 of an inch long to be removed with threading. This is mainly used for the facial area. It is not recommended to remove vellus hair as this may result in terminal hairs and can distort the natural angle of the follicles over time. The skin usually reacts with a little redness and slight soreness. The skin usually reacts with tweezing, as multiple hairs are removed at once. threading is considered an effective hair removal method for clients unable to tolerate waxing due to the use of exfoliation treatments or products like flycolic acid and have become increasingly popular as an option to other methods and requires specialized training. Some regions require special licensing to perform threading.

Clients require the service for varying reasons: as a temporary measure while recovering from surgery, such as facelift; to disguise a congenial defect; or to hide scars and other effects of an accident. The principles of standard make up application also apply to camouflage make up, particularly in terms of shading and blending. But working with clients desiring camouflage make up also requires patience, compassion, a reassuring manner, and the ability to teach new techniques to an often traumatized individual.
