My First Eyebrow Threading Experience

I was having my hair cut when one of the shampoo girls asked if I wanted my eyebrows threaded for a mere RM10.00 (USD2),  Having spent the past 30 years of my life tweezing my eyebrows in a poor attempt to achieve some semblance of brow maintenance, I was glad for an alternative. Eyebrow threading is an ancient Indian practice rumoured to be as equally effective as tweezing, but quicker, and possibly less painful.

I was amazed at the result. There certainly is a difference. My sons said my brows now don't look like Susan Boyle's (before her makeover) anymore! Yep, they are looking neater and subtly arched.
The whole procedure did hurt just a bit and it made my eyes water. But the process was quick (about 8 minutes) and well worth the minimal pain.

I am now a convert!

A  video from YouTube to share.


Have you tried eyebrow threading?  If you haven't, would you?

I have not heard of eyebrow threading; looked interesting! Glad you decided to take the "plunge" and try it :)

Yum on the cookies!

I used to have this done all the time when I lived in Turkey. I haven't done it in the 20 years that I've been back in the US. I think I'll try it next time instead of waxing! Thanks for sharing your experience. :)

I shamefully admit I have NEVER had my brows professionally done! I never cared much about it and just trim them and pluck the random hairs that are out of place. There is a place that does threading in the mall here, and I've been curious about it. Maybe one day I will give it a go.

I haven't had it done. I heard it's great though. Sign me up. I don't know if places around here do that. My son Mica has the worst uni-brow. I always want to pluck his in the middle.

I tried it myself, but I would never attempt my own eyebrows! It was difficult for me to get the hang of, so I went back to plucking. I would love to have it professionally done if they offered it here.

I've thought of trying it.... but I usually just pluck them myself :-) Those cookies are adorable!! So perfect for Spring!

Blessings,
Jill

I don't have to pluck my eyebrows anymore. Seems they don't grow anymore...isn't that weird? I've seen this done, and it looks a ton less painful than wax or plucking.

I haven't done it. I'd try it though, I see the posters in the salons sometimes.

I've always wanted to try eyebrow threading. My daughter learned how to do it and does it on herself, but I still use a tweezer. May have to try this method.

I love getting my eyebrows threaded although they are currently past overdue. I find they hurt less the more regularly you have them done but it always makes my eyes water too! #KCACOLS

That video is amazing. It really shows how great this is. I have had my eyebrows threaded before and I absolutely love it. For me this is the best way and your eyebrows much tidier. I actually need to do this again as they are far to big at the moment,l lol. Your cookies this week are just too cute to be eaten!! Love them as always. Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. I love having you here, :- xx
