Has anyone here ever had it done? How was it? Did you like it better than waxing?

Yes and yes. It seems to last longer and I get a cleaner/more precise line. The girl who does mine basically does one hair at a time, alternating back and forth. This seems to make my brows match much better than waxing. I don't think it's painful--stings a little, but my skin recovers faster than it does with waxing.

I did it-- to me it was more painful than waxing in the sense that they do the hairs individually. I was satisfied but not overjoyed with the results. Since then I've stuck to getting them waxed or plucking myself.

Honestly it's worth a try though- I'd reccomend you try it out and make your own decision =)

I do it in place of waxing. Brows, upper lip, chin. Better shape and lasts longer.

Very precise lines when threading but waxing gets ALL the hair off...Even the little tiny ones the threader misses.

I haven't actually, but I've heard over and over that it's amazing.You can find videos on how to do it on YouTube.

I actually thread myself. It's quite easy to do once you get the hang of it and I could probably thread myself for a year for less than $1.

I do it whenever I can and it's much better then the waxing

It seems to last longer and doesn't irritate my skin as much afterwards.

It's cheaper at Indian stores (In India Threading is done on the face to prevent skin from stretching and also for the removal to be more precise) than Waxing.
Go to an Indain grocery store and ask them if they would recommend a beautician for threading..odds are..they will...
10 bucks for eyeborws ain't bad!!!

Hi, I have been doing eyebrow threading since long...its far better than getting them waxed. Its cleaner and gives a better shape to eyebrows. Just that one should get used to it...might be a little painful for the first time
