    I wax more often so I voted wax but I prefer to thread. The lady that’s really good at threading is like an hour away from my house so I end up just getting them waxed 99% of the time

    I pluck strays on mine. I must have pretty good eyebrows because when I was at the salon, the esthetician asked me if she did my brows. I’m trying to grow them out at the moment from some overplucking in the middle and it’s taking forever!

    When my dermatologist started giving me chemical peels to treat my adult acne, I was terrified – I have VERY sensisitve skin. But, when it went well, I thought maybe eyebrow waxing would be OK. My aesthetician was very careful, but I still ended up burnt. For months, every time I took a hot shower my skin would sting where the wax burned me. So no waxing for this girl. 🙁

    Threading!! I go to a nice Egyptian lady named Megda and she does an amazing job. I’ll never wax again — I have really sensitive skin and even threading makes me red for a few hours, so you can imagine how much wax hurts my skin.

    @WhiteSnow:  I have super sensitive skin so I thread when my mom nags me, but usually go natural. Big brows are in right now (thank you Lily Collins!) so I don’t get too concerned when I let them go for six months or so, but when I used to wax I would break out in terrible itchy hives all across my browline that wouldn’t go away for a week or two.
