Threading in Cork What is threading?

Threading is fast becoming the most popular method for hair removal. Method of plucking untidy hair using rolled threads is favored currently as it avoids pulling on the skin, which is very sensitive around the eye area. Also used to treat upper lip, chin, sides of face, neck. Results usually last 2-7 weeks depending on the hair growth/skin types. More often the treatment, longer the results.

Originated from India and the Far East, also known as KHITE (Arabic) and Fatlah (Egyptian). Threading the entire face is widely used amongst Iranians, Turkish and Indian women but it was originally practiced when a woman was getting married or during special occasions. In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and become a woman.
