Eyelash extensions are used to enhance the length, curliness,
fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. The extensions
may be made from several materials including mink,
synthetic, or human hair.
Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out
one at a time, threading can remove short rows of
hair. Advantages cited for eyebrow threading, as
opposed to eyebrow waxing, are that it provides
more precise control in shaping eyebrows and
is gentler on the skin.
