Out of curiosity, how to waxing and threading compare to tweezing, pain wise?

@strawbabies:  waxing is that quick pain. Tweezing you’ve got pain with every tweeze. Waxing is just over and done with in seconds, feels a bit tender and warm for the next hour or so, but as long as they use hot wax and not strip wax, it’s so much better for your skin

@strawbabies:  Threading is like tweezing over and over again in quick succession.  Waxing rips it all off at once.

@LibertyBelle:  You must have had someone inexperienced do it. It might take just a couple minutes longer than waxing, but I personally don’t think that it hurts at all. In fact I think waxing hurts more! They also say that waxing is extremely abrasive to the skin. You also don’t run the risk of getting burned or as much redness with threading.

@snuzal:  Yes I second the hot wax is much better for your skin. I use this to filter out beauticians, if they tell me they use strip wax on eyebrows I don’t book an appointment.

@shannonh32: Nope, she wasn’t inexperienced. She had years of experience here in the States, but she told me that she started doing it when she was young back in her home country where it is more common. I do know she had been at the salon for years because I went there for other services and sat at chairs near her station. She just happened to be the only person in and without a client when I needed my brows done.

I get my eyebrows threaded too (in the summer, at least, where I live in the summer has a large Desi community, so the girls are good at it, cists $2 or $3).

In the winter I’m stuck with waxing, either myself or at the spa; and it takes days longer for the redness to subside.
