i LOVE threading!  I try to get it done every couple of weeks, but since I work from home and don’t see people too often, I get lazy about it.  It’s definitely great and cheap!

I’ve done it before!  In my opinion threading is better than waxing.  I tweezed prior to getting threaded though so maybe my skin was used to one-by-one plucking? Waxing pulled off some of my skin and that hurt!!!  Not to mention left little scabs that were way worse than stray hairs.

I LOVE threading and there is a place near me that does it for $7.  I loooove it.  I think the more often you go the less sensitive you get.  I also know I push too hard on my eye when I’m holding the skin – so I always have to remind myself to lighten up! I didn’t remember it being painful before I left for England but one of the first things I did when I got back was get threaded and it hurt more than I remembered! Though, that could just be the 6 month hiatus from threading, I’m not sure. 🙂

I’m another threading devotee! I don’t go all that often though. it’s a little pricey, so I just pluck on my own to keep the shape for as long as possible.

I would love to try it… but I have no tolerance for pain. So its a no go for me.

Yeah, I pay $6 at the place on my block!

I like it because it leaves my brow area less irritated and it’s supposed to be better for your skin long-term. I think it hurts about the same as waxing, but it’s just more spread out.

I get my upper lip threaded and have her pluck my eyebrows. Wonderful!

I love threading!  My brows look so neat afterwards, and it’s also $6-$7 around my neighborhood!

I’m a devotee of threading, my eyebrows are ridiculous and totally uneven and somehow threading makes them look decent. I go every two weeks and its about $6.

I pay $6 and LOVE IT. It doesn’t feel as painful as waxing is for me. However, when my upperlip gets done…I want to scream the entire time.
