Threading

Threading is something that I learned about when I moved to South Asia.  I hadn't heard about it before I actually saw one of my friends get it done.  It actually originated in Iran and carried over to the rest of Asia pretty quickly and is now even becoming popular in the US.   
So what is threading?  Well, it's pretty much a method of removing hair.   In South Asia, they use it mostly to fix eyebrows and to get off other unwanted facial hair.  They use a thread and hold one end in their mouth and use both hands and rip out the hair at the folicle.  They can remove a whole row of hair at a time this way.  It's pretty crazy and it's supposed to be more painful than waxing.  Here's a video of it below:
It's only a short clip, but if you want to see more check out Another Short Threading Video.

It is WAY more painful than waxing!!!

Joy said...

Yes, I agree. It is way for painful than waxing. I do it anyways because it is quick! (and cheap) :)

Char said...

I am the third one to agree it IS more painful! Got it done once- and don't plan on doing it again. Ouch.

Roberts said...

Never had it done...because I was too scared! Maheen used to try to show me how when we were 10. :) Have you had it done?

Threading is the BEST! I don't think it is more painful than waxing and it looks SO much better. Thanks for posting a clip, it is impossible to explain to someone how it's done! Just wish I could find someone that knew how to do it in Portugal!

I thought is was way more painful than waxing...at leat the first time! My eyes started involuntarily tearing up and the lady laughed at me. :-) I'm supposed to go next week to have it done again and I still haven't decided if I'm brave enough for threading or if I'm going to just go with the eyebrow wax instead :-)

I'd like to know where I could get good ringtones for the iphone other than creating them on itunes. Is it possible to get them directly from AT&T like you can with any other phone? Is there a 3rd party website where you can get them from at good quality? The problem is that i'm having trouble with the itunes "create a ringtone" feature so I'd like to find another alternative. Please help!

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
