    I surprised waxing isnt an option.  I know very few people that would use a permanent form of hair removal on their eybrows.  I thread and I HATE it.

    I get mine threaded about once a month and do occasionally pluck some strays during the in-between time.  I also like it because it is precise since they can literally hone in on each individual hair they want to remove.  The first few times it is really painful!  But, as with most things, the pain lessens every subsequent time.  But be warned that you will be red afterwards.  I am usually red longer from threading than I ever was from waxing.

    I get mine threaded most of the time, except for 4 month in the winter when I’m in a different part of the country where it’s impossible to find people who have even heard of threading.

    The #1 reason I prefer threading is cost: where I go it’s $2; compared to waxing where I have paid anywhere from $5 – $15.

    I also find threading shapes my brows better: the girls who thread leave them thicker with a better defined arch.

    I’m a waxer but I hear threading is really good too although I’ve never tried it.

    I wax.  My stylist tells me that taking an antacid before waxing will help with redness and swelling, but I almost never remember to do that.

    I tweeze, but just stray hairs. I am lucky that overall I have a good brow shape naturally, so it’s just slight maintence. I have never bothered with waxing. I also have very light colored eyebrows, so it’s not noticebale if I get a little behind in maintenance.

    @Melie12: I would be so scared to do anything permanent to my eyebrows.  What i the esthetician slips.  Eek!

    Tweezers……. I’m amazed that isn’t the top choice. (or even listed at all) It takes 2 minutes – why pay?
