It is believed to have originated as an ancient hair removal technique over 6000 years ago; threading is a popular treatment designed to frame your face for the better. But while threading is most commonly used for brows, it’s worth noting that it’s also a highly effective way of removing unwanted hair on the entire face and upper lip area.
