I thought about it a bit more, and the video I saw had the string
held between the teeth, and twisted as the barber had done.
If you look at his hands closely, he is not rubbing or rolling the
string over the face. He has the ends of the string in each hand
and pulls apart slightly. It seems that by twisting the string first,
it has a tendency to remain twisted...by then seperating of the
two ends (and basicly making a "T" shape with the string) the
point where the strings intersect will trap fine hair. By moving his
hands slightly apart, he causes the string to twist more, and when
he closes the distance between his hands, the string twist relaxes.
It sounds wierd, and kinda hard to explain, but I think you'll get
the idea if you try it....It's basicly a manual epilator.
