grammar & speech language & style


Threading has more than one meaning and I was curious why the neighbourhood manicurists advertise ‘threading’.

My new hairstylist informed me that threading refers to an eyebrow treatment. I envisioned a steady hand painlessly sewing threads to the skin. A sparse brow nicely filled. Oh no, she corrected. Threading trims the brow by removing a row of hairs at a time. According to her client with the best-looking brows the technique involves a flying thread, strong teeth and head/hand coordination.

Now I wanted threading and everything I wanted to know was answered quite thoroughly on YouTube.
