VTCT Level 2 Award in Threading Depilation
Qualification code: AB20125
What is Threading?
Threading is an ancient skill which has now become a popular treatment in salons. This temporary method of hair removal, is a manual technique similar to plucking. Twisted cotton thread is passed across the skin to catch the hairs, removing them from the follicles.
Its origins are a little ambiguous, but it is believed that it was first used in Arabia, Turkey and India.
What are the benefits of Threading?
Threading is a simple, cheap and efficient way of removing unwanted hair with minimal pain and minimal skin irritation.
Very short hair can be removed and as there is little irritation caused to the skin, it is possible to go over the area more than once. Hair can be removed individually or in ‘lines’ to create a perfect shape and can be removed from both above and below the eyebrow giving the threaded eyebrow its characteristic groomed appearance.
A 100% anti-bacterial cotton thread imported from India is used which allows strength but resilience during the technique whilst reducing the risk of infection.
Threading is mainly performed on the face e.g.. upper lip, eyebrows, chin, sides of face, nose, ears, neck and forehead but can be used all over the body too.
