Eyebrow threading

Has anyone had it done? What the difference between that and plucking or waxing?

  • I get mine done at the mall for $10. I wouldn't DREAM of having it done another way now. It is a little uncomfortable, especially for women who are very sensitive to pain. However, it is presice and looks GREAT! Plus, for $10?! Find someone and try it AT LEAST once. You'll love the results!! Plus, plucking on your own is a really bad guess!

  • Eyebrow threading involves twisting a piece of thread, usually cotton, into a double strand. This double stranded thread is used to pick up a line of hair and then remove it, creating a very clean, precise hairline. Eyebrow threading is the technique preferred by Indian movie stars, who are often distinguished by their crisp brow lines.

  • I watched it done, was going to have it done, but backed out. It is more painful than plucking and quite frankly, I don't have the time to sit there, nor the patience. It's supposed to be really good though.

  • I wish I could find someone in my area to do it. It's very clean and comes out looking great.

  • I got it done at the mall a couple months ago with 2 of my friends. It was fabulous! Cost the same as waxing but with none of the pain. She offered us our money back if there was any pain at all. I've gone back a couple times now and I love it. Just wish it was a little more private though...all those people walking by kind of freaked me out.

  • Wow i was thinking of getting this done.Thank you for helping me make up my mind.If i can find someone who does it I think i will for a late gift to myself.I have always had trouble keeping my eyebrows looking nice and trim.I have a high tolerance for pain even if it ends up hurting anyways.
