Hi, my name is Sumita Batra and I'm the CEO of Ziba Beauty. Today, we are going to discuss the difference between threading versus plucking. Plucking is a term often used for tweezing and actually it requires the tool the tweezer. The sharper the better. Threading is an ancient art form that comes from the East which requires a spool of thread cotton thread which is twisted and turned and run across the skin to pull the hair out of the follicle. The main difference is in plucking, you will usually be in front of a mirror and be plucking your hair one follicle at a time whereas with threading, a professional artist is going to be standing above you and they are able to have control and they can either have the precision of pulling out one hair at a time or an entire phase all at the same time. With plucking, because you are in front of the mirror and you are pulling hair, the tool can actually sometimes grab your skin and nick you and scar you, whereas an artist usually has a lot of control and the possibility of nicking and cutting you is minimal. With plucking, because you are in front of the mirror, the fact that you may pull out the wrong hair and spoil your shape or not really pull out the right amount of hair to give yourself the best shape is high. With threading, the artist is standing above you and because of their precision and their expertise and the fact that they have an angle above you, they are able to give you the best possible shape that is right for your face. This is Sumita Batra and I just shared with you the difference between plucking and threading.
