The practitioner holds one end of the cotton thread in his or her teeth and the other in the left hand. The middle is looped through the index and middle fingers of the right hand. The practitioner then uses the loop to trap a series of unwanted hairs and pull them from the skin. There are also devices made that can hold the thread during the procedure.

I wish I actually had eyebrows so that i could wax or thread them lol. Mine are very light brown and very fine. Last time I went to the hairdresser she asked me if i was having my eyebrows waxed today, I just looked at her and didnt know what to say lol. Then she looks and has a giggle to herself and says "Would you like me to tint them?". After she done it I was like OMG I have eyebrows!! Still not enough to wax or get them nicely shaped though :(

Wow, you learn something new every day! I have never heard of it either :oops:

I've never done anything with my eyebrows, just comb them with a little comb when I'm doing my makeup, that's about as fancy as I get lol.
