There is a lady I have gone to for about ten yrs now. She is great! But she is located in Aliso Viejo. Is that too far for you?

Don’t know where you’re located in Orange County but I have great recommednations for both threading and waxing salons in the Cerritos and Long Beach areas (both in LA County but very close to the OC)!

For threading there are tons of salons in Cerritos and neighboring city Artesia. The two salons that I have been frequenting since about 10 years ago are:  Farri’s Salon, located on Pioneer Blvd. in Artesia, and Vinita’s Salon located on 183rd Street right across from the Los Cerritos Mall. (You should be able to yellow page them for location and contact info). Both places do great work and costs about $6 to $7 for eyebrows.  At Farri’s I always use the owner, Farri, she does a great job shaping brows. I don’t know the names of the girls I use at Vinita’s but either girl at Station #1 and #6 are fabulous.

I just found a fantastic place in Long Beach for waxing called Aesthetics By Irina — and best part of it is that they use "Sugar Wax" which is all-natural and is much less painful than regular wax. All the info, pricing, services offered by this salon can be found on their website at :  http://aestheticsbyirina.com/.  Irina is absolutely the BEST!!!!

Hope this helps!!!

even though i have not gone in a while, i have been going to always Ziba’s (artesia, long beach, costa mesa) for over 10 years, so i am sad that someone had a bad experience.  it is hard to find someone new to trust with your brows!

@Sparkles: where in aliso viejo?  That is by me!  I’d love to find a place to try waxing (read: never done it), but I want somewhere were they are nice and gentle because I’m a little scared.

i’ve been going to a place in Brea called Mercedes Spa & Salon for the past eight years and they just changed their name to Brea Day Spa recently. They are across from the Brea Mall off the 57 & Imperial.  They do AMAZING facials but be prepared for some pain because they do some major acne removals along with they typical massage, mask, etc but it is well worth it since my face is spotless for the next few weeks (i break out quite a bit).  They also use Aveda products. And they do great massages!  Let me know if you want more info!

I tried Nanu in Costa Mesa this past Friday.  It was my first time getting my eyebrows threaded (I usually tweeze), and I definitely plan to return a few days before the wedding.  I found out about Nanu on Yelp; most of the reviewers recommended Navi who I requested as well.  The cost for eyebrow threading is $8.

By the way, thank you for starting this thread (no pun intended).  It definitely was the motivating factor to see what threading is like (it’s awesome!  I never knew my eyebrows could look so clean!).

Check out Ziba in Artesia or there is one in OC across from South Coast Plaza. I really like Sheer Artistry in Diamond Bar. I’ve been going there for eye brow threding since I was a teenager!

There is this Laser Hair Removal at Westminster Mall Called Diva. I just started my treatment. So far so good.
