Threading is a natural hair removal method, practiced by twisting thread along the skin’s surface. Threading is no misnomer. In fact, the hair removal tool in threading in nothing more than thread held between a technician's hands (and in some cases, their teeth as well) in a twisted configuration. As the technician moves their hands, spaces open between those twists and then tighten again, grabbing and holding onto hair, and pulling it free, root and all. If you've ever used an epilator before, you're familiar with the basic concept.
