How old was your daughter when you took her for the first brow waxing?

A FB friend was bragging that she tortured her 7 year old by taking her to get her eye brows waxed.

Am I just the only one that finds that to be entirely too young?

  • That's way too young! My daughter is 7 and I couldn't imagine her getting her eyebrows waxed.. I'd say 12 at the youngest.

  • It's young, but it depends on the kid. I'd only consider it if my DD wanted it that age. I just started waxing both my daughters brows and their 11 and 13.

  • I am 26 and have never had a brow wax

  • I wouldn't think of taking a kid to have that done.

  • I kind of understand, my oldest is 6 and has brows that will eventually need to be waxed, or something. The only reason I haven't brought her is because I don't want to do anything that would cause her pain or possibly burn her skin, even though I know she'd never sit through me trying to pluck her brows. I'm kind of hoping a permanent non-painful solution will be developed before she's a teen.

    You're lucky. So people really need it.  My DD really needed to by 9 years old.  I waited until 11 because she never mentioned it.

  • I never brought my girls to get that done. I never do it either.

  • I did not even have mine done until I was like, 14 or so...

    I guess I could see if it was a serious problem for teasing to get them done but purely for 'fun' seems odd to me.

  • I am sorry, I can't see doing that to a kid that young for any reason.

  • Depends, I have a Burt brow, from Ernie and Burt, LOL, My mom plucked my unibrow from about 4, inbetween ripping my hair out when she combed through it, as a hairy lady, I say if the kid is being teased (I was called monkey) and want to then it is okay, but I would think she should pluck them or have her threaded, young kids have pretty thin skin, and it could cause a welt.
