More women in El Paso are looking for alternatives for hair removal.
Many women complain that wax can burn or irritate their skin.
Now, the owner of Salone Trevizzo says that threading is becoming much more popular and practical in El Paso.
Women like, Victoria Esparza looked to this Middle Eastern method for her sensitive skin.
"I had an incident. I was using a special cream on my face and I tried waxing and it just swelled up and burned my skin. It scabbed over and nobody wants to be walking around like that. I've never had that type of side effect with the threading," Esparza said.
Esparza says she has been getting threaded for about three years now, and that it is much less painful than waxing.
