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 GTi Threading course covers how to give a full Threading treatment and covers the history, technique and aftercare of the treatment.
The course also covers reception and consultation, and contra-indications to treatment. It also includes detailed technique modules which show you how to carry out a Threading treatment.
The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a full-colour certificate for a GTi Award in Threading Treatments.
Please note: From 1st May 2018, if you are not already a member of the GTi you are required to join as a Student Member costing £25 and paid directly to the GTi.
