It’s definitely a lot faster than plucking.  I’ve been having mine threaded for a couple years now and I like it.  I’ve never really had anyone make any mistakes.. one of my brows is thicker than the other and if you’re not careful, it’s easy to end up with a hole in the middle of the thinner one, LoL.  I had it happen with a stylist that arched my brows with a razor a few years ago.  But I’ve never had that prob with threading… the only thing I suggest is to not go right before or during your time of the month.  I know, at least for me, any type of hair removal like waxing, plucking or threading hurts like 10x worse around that time.

I was afraid of them making a mistake too and also afraid of the pain, but I got mine done at the mall, and it was great. It was still felt kinda like plucking, but they were able to get a much better shape than I do on my own. I did watch a couple people get theirs done before I got mine done though.

Ha, I just got back from one. To me it’s less painful than plucking (when anyone other than myself does it) and more painful than waxing. They’re pretty conservative in how much hair they take out so I wouldn’t worry about a mistake. IMO though, the final outcome isn’t as polished as plucked eyebrows. I do this regularly to maintain a general shape, but for a special occasion I go somewhere to have tweezed.

I get mine waxed, why is plucking or threading better?

I too get waxed but then threading is used to get any other hairs left over. I find threading is more of a tickling sensation than a hurtful one.

MsFoxxy offers good advise regarding when you should and shouldn’t try threading. I have never had it done before, but my best friend had her entire face done a week before her wedding and had tiny red bumps for days (some lingered until her wedding day). If you want to try it, I would suggest doing it asap. Then you can see how your skin reacts to threading. Good luck!

I have recently stared to get my eye brows threaded instead of waxed and I prefer it. It is less painful and I think it looks more polished when done.

I’m a waxing kinda girl! But I love the threading too. I get mine done at the mall! Speaking of which I need to go have it done soon, haha.

I love threading! and will never go back to waxing. I have sensative skin and the wax and me do not get along (even when I tell them and they use other wax instead… still nothing…) I would give it a try. The feeling is a little weird at first and if you have a lot of hair, or thick eyebrow hair I could see it being really painful. But my hair is thin so I don’t have much of a problem.

I love threading, for me it lasts about 2 weeks before I either start plucking or I go get it redone.  I think it always turns out better than waxing!

Ive been threading for over 10 years. I love it. They are much more accurate than waxing, because they wrap that thread around the hair, as oppose to waxing, they just slab glue on it, and RRRIP.

Im all for threading, I always get complimented on my eyebrows. It also lasts longer, I only do my eyebrows every month, or month & a half.

@glo27: Ive been getting my brows threaded for years and I would say

1. Try it out now to see how you react to it. Most people are FINE and only have slight redness for a few minutes or so. my upper lip is the most sensitive to threading and can stay red for a few hours. 

2. Find someone who does it well and make sure you go to them several times before your wedding so that they can get comfortable working on your brows and if for example you have thick brows and dont want them thinned out too much they can learn your likes and dislikes

3. If you have thick brows, like I do, I would say get it a few days before your wedding…like 3 days, because your eyebrows will look best a couple of days later because it wont look so DONE and will have a more natural look to it and not so sharp edges. if that makes sense. when they first get done I feel that they are too thin and unnatural. thats what I did for my engagement party got em done a couple days in advance.

I love threading! For me, it’s a lot better than waxing because I have super thick eyebrows so it gives me a more natural look than waxing does. Waxing just makes my brows look too polished and perfect. It does hurt the first time…and the second… but like any hair removal process it just takes time to get used to it.

ok i havent read all the comments but i spotted one asking why plucking/threading is better than waxing?

i get mine waxed but im told that if you do it too often its can make your brow sag? i nurse i know said that the plastic surgeon in the hospital she works at has a lot of women coming in for mini brow lifts…anywho it wont stop me doing it, i cant stand plucking:P
