its called threading and has been popular in some cultures for years and years - it is highly skilled work though so be very careful if you try it.

There has been loads of threads do on "threading" (pardon the pun) so have a search and see what you find. x x x

i too want to learn the art of threading but i've been told by a friend who done a one day course that it is very very hard to master

i love the finish you get when you thread eyebrows

I know NSI do threading courses and it is an indian girl who is the tutor. I saw her at GMex and she was very very good. Take a look at their website as funnily enough I looked yesterday at some courses so I know there are some coming up.

Laura,
pop 'threading' into the search option above because we have discussed this before as I am interested in attending the course too.
I think I put a link on for a live demo on u-tube.

Yes Anne, it was me. I trained with Salma at NSI (The Scottish Beauty School) in Glasgow, and she is brilliant.

I can honestly say, it's one of the best things I ever did. I didn't find it hard to master as such, it just takes time to get your speed up. I have never cut anyone and it's extremely popular with my clients.

Go for it laura, you'll love it and so will your clients

Hi I learnt this a few months ago and I agree you need time to get speed up but it is not difficult to learn. The secret is to do it staight after your course and keep practising. I had an Indian client who said that in India they go so fast they can hurt but mainly because they are talking as well! You must get the area taut before threading and it goes a lot easier.:lol:
