Abdul, our resident Egyptian barber is a master at facial threading,an ancient art perfected by the Egyptians.
Threading is a proven age-old form of facial hair removal practiced in India, China and Middle East. The procedure uses a 100% cotton thread which is twisted and pulled along the skin surface of unwanted hair, lifting hair directly from the follicle. As the facial hair is removed, only a slight pinch is felt.
Threading is the perfect facial hair removal alternative to waxing, depilatory creams tweezing or laser, especially if you have sensitive skin. Unlike laser hair removal, waxing or the use of depilatories, irritation and skin rashes are avoided as the top layer of your skin is not stripped off in the process. Also, since threading is a completely natural skin removal process, it works on all skin types, whether you have normal skin, sensitive skin, tanned or damaged skin.
It is an inexpensive, safe, simple, fast and effective method of hair removal. It removes facial hair quickly and effectively without damaging the skin. In fact, threading has been used for more than 1,000 years by Asians to remove unwanted facial hair!
