There are many ways to remove unwanted facial hair. Threading, or removing hair with string, is a procedure that is widely known to Middle Eastern women. The method is increasing in popularity in the United States, and is thought to be less painful than waxing or plucking. The hair removed with a cotton string, is removed directly from the follicle. The new hair growth grows in thinner, and there is less stress on the facial skin. Threading can be used on all facial hair, such as, the eyebrows and upper lip. There is virtually no mess, or burning of the skin, like with waxing. The procedure is also very inexpensive, and with a little practice you can learn how to remove hair with string.
