I usually get my eyebrows waxed. Well, I shouldn't say "usually" because that makes it sound like it happens often. I should say that when I need someone else to tend to my brows, when the tweezers just won't cut it anymore, I get them waxed.
But, my friend (Hi M) kept talking about how she gets her eyebrows threaded, so I thought I'd give that a shot. I went to the mall kiosk (Brow Art) and was very happy with the threading. You're just going to have to ignore the fact that you're in the mall getting hair taken off your face in the view of all who are walking by. I'm okay with that type of thing (remember, I'm the one who got reflexology done at the mall) but it is something to take into consideration.
And I don't know if it's just me, or if it's an American thing, but when I get a service done I want to stand for a minute and check out the area, look at the price list and just mull for a second. And I don't know if it's a cultural thing, or a mall thing or what..but I think they've been trained to just get the person in the chair...even if they're asking questions or moving kind of slow and look like they want to mull...just GET THEM IN THE CHAIR. And the chair...just be prepared because it's set so you're sitting waaay reclined. So once you're in the chair and the blood is rushing to your head, you aren't asking any more questions.
Once you're done with the threading, be prepared to barter. They will try to sell you a membership and she spits out figures on a calculator super quick...and the blood is still rushing back down out of your head so you might not be thinking properly. I'm not sure if I got a good deal or not but I paid $65 for 6 brow and lip threads. Please let me know how I did on my bartering skills and if anyone else is getting a better deal than this elsewhere.
And one last thing. When they thread - the thread is in their mouth. But at no time does the thread that was in their mouth touch your face. I googled it while searching for "How to learn how to thread your own eyebrows". I mean, I have thread in the house and I could probably learn how...
