Threading was developed by the Middle East and South Asia involving a technique using a piece of cotton string that is swiped quickly against the skin to remove hair at the root without damaging the skin. Most people find threading less painful than waxing or plucking due to the speed of the treatment. 

Threading is one of the most popular hair removal treatments, however it can only be carried out on flat surfaces therefore it is only suitable for the brows and face. Most threading treatments are carried out on the eyebrows, upper lips, chin, sideburns, and cheeks. 

Some countries carry out threading with the use of hands and mouth, however the use of the mouth can be unhygienic and increase the risk of hair follicle infections therefore it must only be carried out with the use of your hands.
