Has anyone been to eyebrow threading? Is it really much pain compared to waxing? Does anyone know where is a good place for eyebrow threading in Sydney?
What is eyebrow threading?
I just googled it and it looks really interesting
here is a good youtube clip if you want to see
So what, the thread twists up the hair and pulls it out? It looks like a hard skill to master!
wow it looks really interesting, if you find a place in sydney that does it let me know
I had never heard of this before today!
Hey girls, yes the way the thread is twisted and dragged across the skin(very quickly) it literally pulls the hairs out, it is more painful than waxing simply because waxing pulls out alot more hair all in one strip...with threading(basically plucking heaps of hairs simultaneously) it is repetitive, but VERY EFFECTIVE, no chemicals, same effect as waxing, but very tidy...and unlike waxing, you can go right up under the brow....it does hurt but is bearable and i'd pick it over waxing my eyebrows anyday. once you get used to the technique, it is quite easy....threading is also good for removing facial hair that wax can't quite pick up, as well as very fine hairs. By the way, it's a very traditional thing for indian women, i first saw it being done in the back of a sari shop...amazing stategy they've thought up, if anyone lives in the area, there is a small time salon in quakers hill, sydney that does it,costs about $12 "For eloquence in hair and beauty" her name is Azita if i remember right, there's also a sari shop, not sure of it's name but is directly opposite seven hills train station, sydney.
Trikk3 - I first heard about it in a book I was reading about a lady who moved to India, but otherwise I haven't heard anything about it here in Aus. Just curious, it has the same effect as waxing, but is more painful? What is it that makes it preferable for you?
I've been getting my eyebrows threaded since I was 17! It is the most popular way to do it in India. Have switched to waxing it since I moved to UK and dont seem to know where to get it in Adelaide.
It basically removes the hair by its root, so takes as long as waxing for hair to grow back. As Trikk3 has explained, it is more precise than waxing, because it removes hair above and below the brow line, both fine and thick hair.
Given my pain threshold, it is not too painful, it is as painful as waxing for me.
My advice is, tell the lady how thick or thin you want it be, it is easy to over do it.
Oh ok, so it's mainly the precision that makes it popular? Thanks Delicious Girl :)
i have had it done before its actually painless better than waxing and plucking i love it!
Heya Billywig. I like it better because you do not have to tweeze afterward as you do with waxing.Because it as fine as the thread you are using. unlike waxing, you can bring it right up under and even into the brow whilst only removing the hairs you want to, it is alot tidier and shape is defined alot quicker and with less effort. I also prefer threading as it even picks up ALL of the fine and short hairs that wax can't. there is also no sticky residue left on the skin afterwards like there is when you wax,also the preferred choice for people that do not like to use unnatural products or chemicals on the skin. it is a little more painful but just as quick,as your skin is not pulled like it is with waxing, the pain usually depends more on the thickness of your hairs, like i said though, it is bearable.
I've had it done before too! It's quick and feels strange but lasts as long as waxing does and gives a really clean and smooth result.
I've never broken out from waxing before, I had threading done once, I thought I was going to faint!
My mum and several other friends swear by it and think it's the best!
But for me just couldn't handle it, it was more so the method rather than the pain that got me.
i have been getting my eye brows threaded for the past few months and im addicted too it! my brows have never looked so good! im such a perfectionist and i used to be so annoyed by tiny little hairs that waxing would leave behind. ive been trying to master doing the threading myself, im so uncoordinated when it comes to do my left brow!!
Wow, Michelle joy, are you just learning yourself? It looks so difficult.
oh wow, doing threading yourself! Good work michelle!
Eyebrow threading got a mention on CSI on the weekend! lol
I've heard about this method and it sounds very appealing! (not the painful part) might give this a try one day..
I Thread my one eyebrows. Its actully pretty simple i learnt off my mother who has be doing it for years. But there are make-up Guru's on Youtube with videos explaining how to do it,
Here's a Good One If Your Interested.
Wow, after watching taht I really wanna try it.
I saw a vid on a girl who got her whole face... random. She said certain areas really hurt. No surprise.
But I would try it on my eyebrows for sure
I sometimes thread my own brows too, it is really simple =]
sounds like its a whole lotta pain
I've heard a little about threading but I've never seen it advertised in any beauty place??
I've had it done a few times. I prefer waxing as waxing is less painful. The threading causes me to tear up quite a bit.
But I think with threading there is less chance of those post wax ingrowns/pimples.
I've had my eyebrows threaded before when I was in the states. To be honest I prefer it to waxing. Maybe only slightly more painful as the procedure takes a little longer but the girl did an amazing job and my eyebrows look fantastic. I don't know if maybe they can be more precise with threading but I love the way it made my eyebrows look.
I always have my eyebrows threaded as it's the only way I can get the nice shape I like, waxing just can't do it for some reason. I find it doesn't really hurt at all, I just hate all the little hairs tickling my nose and getting in my eyes sometimes.
Definately recommend threading if your not happy with waxing!!
This product exceeded my expectations massively. The texture of the product is really nice light and no smell whatsoever.
I got this in a Christmas kit in the shade Lean in. I’m not sure if the problem is the shade or the gloss itself but I don’t think it’s a product to use on its own.
I got this product in the shade 872 Glit/Doré. I find that the colour looks nice on first application but as soon as you blend it it fades and you’re just left with a bunch of glitter in your eye.
