Brows...

What do you ladies find works best...threading...waxing...plucking? How much do you typically pay to get your brows done. I used to go this fabulous place around College/Yonge that was $5 for threading....now I end up paying $15 because I am normally in the burbs. Do you find one way works better than others? I have only ever tried threading (and of course plucking by myself for maintenance).

I do threading. I've had wax too but I think threading pulls on your delicate skin around the eyes less. I go to Roza's Esthetics in Bloor West Village ( I did a review on it) and it's between $9 - $11. I can't remember since I usually get something else done around the same time, like bikini waxes. Roza does a good job and she's also a really nice person. I highly recommend you try if you're ever in the area.

tweeze! on Feb 22, 2007 @ 02:45 pm

I just tweeze mine, and it looks alright. Cheap too, saves you money! Good for the in between visits to the esthetician.

Ok, forgive my ignorance, but what is threading?

I've had mine waxed a few times, to guide me w/ a nice shape, and then maintain it w/ plucking. Those little suckers seem to grow back quickly. Does a follicle ever die!?

threading on Jul 06, 2007 @ 12:00 am

It is hair removal using a thread that is twisted and rolled over your hair, pulling the little suckers out by the root. Unlike waxing, it doesn't pull on your skin, just the hairs themselves, so I prefer this for my eyebrows. It is something that started in the Middle East and has become popular here.

I find that my brows do take a while to grow back in, but that is because I've been ripping them out for years with one method or another. threading is definitely my fave. You have to get it done at a salon though. Make sure you get a recommendation for where to go for this. I once had a bad experience where I came out with 75% less eyebrows than I had going in and I looked like I was all forehead.

different from plucking? on Jul 12, 2007 @ 12:41 pm

So how is threading any different, or better, for your skin than tweezing? Tweezing only tugs slightly at the skin to get at the hair's root, seemingly the same amount as threading. Does threading, like waxing, take out more than one hair at at a time?

Threading pulls out multiple hairs at once but not as many as waxing. It is similar to plucking but faster.

I go to Roza's esthetics in Bloor West for this service. It is around $11 and she does a very good job. Ask for Roza though. I haven't tried anyone else.
