it is no surprise that many don’t
learn threading or get it done
for fear of disease transmission.
However, they should rest easy that
many instuctors teach a method
that does not involve holding the
thread in the mouth. I used an
amazing threading artist from Iraq
who employed a technique using
both hands to perform the service.
I asked her why she did this,
and she stated that some clients
worried that it was not up to safety
standards and could run the risk
of catching an infection. This is
completely understandable. I was
only allowed to have the students
taught the technique where both
hands and no mouth were used.
As with any other service,
there are potential side effects to
threading. Clients can experience
redness, soreness and possibly
ingrown hairs. I personally have not
had any clients with ingrown hairs
after threading, but it does happen.
If one were to experience ingrown
hairs, they should exfoliate two to
three times a week with a gentle
exfoliant, preferably glycolic based.
THINK CHIN AND LIP TOO
If one wants to get threading
done, they will usually have to go to
a threading studio. Not very often
will you see it offered in spas or
salons, but it is a fantastic service
to offer. Especially if you are one of
the only providers of it in your area,
the income potential is limitless.
I would love to be able to see this
Threading allows for great precision.
