Has anyone tried eyebrow threading to remove the hair?


I saw this on TV along time ago and now that I need glass's to read, I can't see to pluck my own eyebrows. Our local mall has a place that does it and I wanted to know if anyone has tried it and if so, what did they think of it?

do it

I've done it before and it is amazing! My eyebrows look the best when I do it!

But I must warn you that it does hurt. They don't just take the hair from under your brows like in waxing, they go all around your brows, up to your hairline, and even the "peach fuzz" on your forehead. It gives a perfect shape on the top and the bottom. It doesn't leave your skin as red as after waxing either.

100% worth it!

Most people I know stick with threading their brows. It's also usually cheaper than waxing. I definitely recommend it.

About how much..

would you say it might run me for a first timer? The place in our mall had a sign saying it was $12, but that could have bin for something else, I didn't have my glass's with me at the time. Oh the joy's of getting older. LOL
Also when I saw this on TV they said it didn't hurt and they only did around the brow, not up to the hair line. They may not have shown all of it being done, but could it also depend on the girl that's doing it and can you just ask for the brows to be done?

I pay $15 each time. I mean the hair line on the sides beside your brows, not your whole forehead.

It definitely hurt for me...it's like little pinches. Actually, the first time I did it, someone else had to hold my forehead down because I was so jumpy!

I've never tried it..

.. But I've also seen it on TV and it looked like it would work really great!

I have another solution as well though.. My mom has the same problem you do, her eyes started to get worse as she got older, and couldnt' see to pluck her eyebrows. She bought this little mirror that suctions onto your bathroom mirror, and it magnifies a LOT! It's specifically for plucking your eyebrows.

I hope you find a solution :)

meguinn & cathy3087

meguinn you wouldn't happen to remember where your mom bought this mirror would you?

cathy3087 I thought I saw it for $12 at our mall. How long did it last for you?
I think I might still try it even if it's just once, just to say I gave it a try. I can handle pain pretty good, so I should be alright. If I don't like, I'll look for the mirror meguinn told me about, that's if I can find it.
thanks lady's for all you're help I'll let you know how it goes when I get up the nerve to go.

I haven't done it in a while but I think I'd say it lasts about 2 weeks. Definitely give it a try, it's worth the shot!

As for the mirror Meg mentioned, my Mom actually has one like that too! She got hers at Sephora

Thanks for all you help, I'll be sure to let know what I thought of it after I have it done.

It's good

I've recently started threading my eyebrows. It works well. At the place I go to it costs under $10 with tax and tip and they do a good job. It does hurt and my eyes do tend to water a little. Waxing is a quick, sharp pain while threading is similar to continuously plucking so it doesn't hurt as much but it takes a long time.

Threading is supposedly better than waxing because waxing stretches the skin while threading doesn't. Is this true? I have no idea.

I think in terms of waxing VS. threading and how it looks, it really depends on the person doing it. I actually prefer my aesthetician who waxes my eyebrows and would continue to go to her if I could. She just lives far away from me now and unless I'm in the area I won't bother to make the trip there.

I'd say give it a try and see what you think but make sure you don't have some new person.

The best way to go

I only get threading and have for years. It's the best way to pluck the hairs from the delicate eye area. Once you start doing it that way you'll probably stick with it.

I go to Sarah at Queens Quay Hair Design & Esthetics every couple of months. It's under $20 and she does a wonderful job. The salon is very small and not fancy but I've been very happy with Sarah's work.
