Has anyone had their eyebrows threaded before? The MUA I had my trial with suggested that I do this (as opposed to waxing) before the wedding. I am a little hesitant and have no idea what to expect. Any advice?

I have had it done and I am a big baby. It wasn’t so bad. They have a kiosk setup in one of the malls here, so I watched the girl do a few before I let her work on me. I really prefer it over waxing. If you have ever tweezed your eyebrows, that is what it feels like.

Oh ok! Tweezing is my prefered method of eyebrow removal anyway. I don’t do wax; hot + near my eye = no freaking way.

I get my eyebrows threaded all the time in the summer. Threading last longer and its cleaner IMO. I also get my eyebrows waxed when the threading line is too long, and IMO threading is more painful than waxing.

I have my eyebrows threaded all the time. It’s a bit painful, but last longer than waxing and produces very clean looking results. Love it!

I get waxed but get finished off with threading. It’s a strange sensation, rather like a sharp tickle. I find it effective and probably more so than waxing in a way.

I get mine threaded because the medicine I am on does not allow for waxing (ill get scabs and really red) so anyways, I actually prefer the look of threading a lot better..it is more precise and accurate, but it does hurt more. My eyes literally have a constant stream of tears coming out of them every time.

I really liked the threading when I was able to afford it lol Right now it’s home waxing for me lol It really isn’t that bad and does last longer.

i don’t think it hurts at all! make sure you get a recommendation though — you don’t want anyone taking off too much close to your wedding!

I did eyebrow threading for my engagement pics, wedding, and now contemplating it again for the honeymoon. I work with a few Indian girls and that is all they do. I have tried waxing and it rips off my skin and leaves yucky scabs. Thought I would try threading. I loved it! Really not that painful (like tweezing as others have said). One brow hurt more than the other for me and the girl said that is pretty normal. So in my case they did the left brow first and it wasn’t painful at all but when they switched to the right it hurt a bit more.
I found a girl in Minneapolis that works out of her house and did it for $6. She was great! Found her on http://www.localfiles.com/production/main/ . I don’t see one for Philadelphia though 🙁

@rachaelrobin: All the time!! I love it…its quick and relatively pain free and lasts much longer.

@kitzy: How right you are! That is something that I am nervous about. I love a thick brow and would be so upset if I walked out with pencil thin ones! The MUA said I should ask for a ‘clean up’ and tell them not to change the shape.

I have always gotten my eyebrows waxed and wasn’t really sure of the eyebrow threading. I think I’ll have to give it a try. Thanks!
