Try Threading for All Natural Hair Removal T

hreading is an all-natural process of hair removal that originated in Southeast Asia. Just a piece of cotton thread is used, creating a knot to remove facial hair. Threading lasts a

lot longer, since the hair is being plucked from the roots. It is also minimally invasive to the skin as there are no harsh chemicals or wax involved and is great for all skin types. The technicians fi nd the perfect shape of one’s eyebrows that fl atters your face as well. As it is a cultural regiment in my native country, Nepal, I have been threading since I was 14. It’s a tradition passed down to the females of our generation that is practical, cost effective and pro- duces wonderful results.

Perhaps no one else is qualifi ed enough to provide more details regarding threading than Binda Neupane, owner of GBS Brows threading, who commercially started one of the fi rst threading salons in Connecticut. Coming from humble beginnings in Nepal, she is self-taught since there were no authentic beauty schools in Nepal at that time. She wanted to bring the concept to this com- munity where threading was virtually unknown, realizing the shift the nation was taking towards natural beauty products. Opening a small salon called GBS Threading and Spa commercially in Trumbull Mall in 2007, she slowly made people aware about the benefi ts of threading and having well-shaped, fuller eyebrows. A decade later, threading has been much more popular and salons have popped up like mushrooms. Her advice is to go to a well rep- utable salon with highly qualifi ed technicians. With over twenty years of experience and over ten stores under her belt, Binda aims to provide 100% natural hair removal and beauty services to our community.
