What is Eyebrow Threading? Eyebrow threading originated in India and parts of the Middle and Far East. Unlike other, more abrasive depilation techniques, threading doesn’t involve harsh chemicals or sticky wax. Instead, a simple piece of cotton thread is rolled and twisted along the surface of the skin, ensnaring hairs and quickly removing them by their follicles with pinpoint accuracy. Unlike plucking, which removes one hair at a time, threading removes an entire line of hair at a time, resulting in a cleaner and more precise shaping of the brow. And unlike waxing, threading does not adversely affect the top layers of the skin. What is Henna Tattoo? Henna is the Persian name for a tall, shrub-like plant known as Lawsonia inermis and is native to Asia and the Mediterranean coast of Africa. Due to Henna’s global popularity, it is now cultivated in warm and dry climates all over the world. To make the paste used for temporary Henna tattoos, its leaves are ground into a fine paste. It is this paste that serves as the primary medium in the art of Mehndi, the non-invasive, non-permanent staining of skin in tones ranging from light orange to dark brown. Mehndi has been practiced for centuries in regions such as India, North Africa and the Middle East as a form of ritual and celebration but has only recently gained popularity in America as a form of art and expression. Henna contains hennotannic acid, a dye that bonds with the collagen in skin cells and keratin of fingernails and hair, leaving behind a red coloring. Because only the top layer of the skin is affected by the paste, the resulting henna tattoo designs will gradually fade with time, typically lasting anywhere from two to four weeks.
