Eyebrow threading

Have you ever gotten it done? Pardon the poor quality of the blackberry photos in the faux wooden, old school elevator that takes about 3 minutes to go up to my floor. Not joking. I have time to snap away…

Before and after. As soon as I saw the after photo of my eyebrows, I kind of freaked out because I thought she had threaded off too much of my left eyebrow. Look how thin the beginning of it looks! I almost cried right then and there. I remember laying down and mentioning to the woman that I was trying to grow the front of my eyebrows out! What gives?

Whether I get my eyebrows waxed, threaded, or tweeze them myself I end up getting really red around the area. Sensitive skin is for suckers like myself. But you know what? With waxing my eyebrows stay red until the next morning when the swelling goes down. Seriously.

With threading, this redness had disappeared within the hour!

I have to admit that the threading was a bit painful. With waxing it’s over in a quick rip of a second. But with threading my eyes just poured water down my cheeks and I wanted her to stop lol. It was a bit much, really, but apparently threading lasts longer than waxing? That’s what a few people have told me in the past. Plus, the threading was only 8 bucks.

I’m so going back.

  1. I’ve never done it but I want to! Mind you, I haven’t had my eye brows done in so long its a sight for sure. Lol!

    Nancy says: We should go together! My treat!

  2. I’d like to try it! I’m weary of letting other people do my eyebrows though, I’ve never had them professionally done I do them myself because I don’t like the pain or tweezing and I don’t mind waxing but I’d rather just do it my own way. lol

  3. I get my eyebrows waxed every 3 weeks religiously….but you know what I REALLY want? Eyelash extensions. Have you heard of that…oh my goodness it looks AMAZING!!! But it is expensive and I am just not to the point where I am willing to spend upwards of $200 for my vaniety. haha!

    Nancy says: hahaha I heart you Kel!! I’d never get eyelash extensions. Mine are long enough as it is. I always get compliments on them. Aren’t you jealous? haha jk.

  4. I usually wax them, but thankfully i don’t need to do it so often.

    Anyway, it’s just one of the stuff we have to do. Man should be more appreciated of all we have to do to stay beautiful.
