Overview

During a threading treatment, individual hairs are removed completely from the hair follicle. A twisted thread catches hairs as it is rolled across the skin and removes them. This is suitable for eyebrows and small areas of hair on the face. Threading hair is an ancient method commonly practiced in Egypt and India, but is becoming very popular here in the UK.

The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists and is worth 23 CPD points.

The theory element of the course is completed online via the Guild and the assessment is held at College. You will need a Gti Student membership to complete the Guild courses.
