Have you ever had your eyebrows threaded?

There is a place here in town that does it, but I want to know if it's better than waxing?

  • I've had it done once...25 years ago. I've never had them waxed. I waxed my legs once and it hurt so bad I decided I'd rather shave.

    As for the threading. I don't know if it's better than waxing, but it does work. My sons girlfriend does it all the time. I'm afraid I just pluck.

  • Yes I have had it done. For me its easier than waxing or plucking but lasts the same amount of time before the next one.

  • Yes, once. It looked good but, IMO, it takes too long to do. B/C of that, it ends up hurting more than waxing.

  • Yes, often.

  • I've done it once, but I think the threads break the smallest, tiny hair around your eyebrows, so you may see them grow (what we call "bushy eybrowes!" Since then I just pluck them, which gives me more control !

  • I wouldn't do the threading personally because it just grosses me out. I see them put the string in their mouth and I just think of germs... lol

    I have my brows waxed. I have done it enough that most of the hair doesn't even come back and I just have to maintain a little bit. It hurts for a minute and my skin gets a little red because I am so fair skinned. haha

  • I always thought so... but it hurts. I hated having it done because my eyes watered so much. If you do it, do it before you put on makeup... LOL!

  • Yes it's my preferred way to get my brows done I am less inclined to get blemishes and it seems to last longer.
