an ancient form of hair removal, using a blend of cotton thread. a twisting motion is used to pull the hair out completely by the root. just a string of cotton blend thread, with a pinch of sorcery. it is less painful and great for people with sensitive skin, or non candidates for sugaring or waxing. this is suitable for nearly everyone with nominal risk of reactions. anecdote: i was threaded by my grandmother as a child, back in China (before it made its way to the west side), and didn't think anything of it. ironically, now, i am the one performing this service.
