View Full Version : Eyebrows

Ok so I have let my eyebrows grow bushy because I want to reshape them and have them nicely done. I was considering threading but I never done it so I donít know if I will be happy with the out come. I usually wax or pluck them myself, but I donít want to do them anymore because I realized I was just making them thinner and thinner. :( So what do you ladies do? You thread, pluck or wax? Do you do them yourself? I want a nice shape, Iíve never liked my eyebrows.

I do a combination of pluck and wax. What is threading?

They pull your hairs out with thread lol. It’s Indian and I saw it at my local mall. My sister in law tells me that it’s more accurate than plucking and waxing, Thursday is going to be the first time I do it.

I have only gotten them waxed a couple of times. I didn't like the way the women did it, so I just stick to plucking. I also tried to wax them once at home, and took off some of my essential eyebrow. So, plucking is good. I don't know how I feel about threading either. I have a nice shape right now, but...with a ten month old...I definitely go bushy quite a bit of the time.

i wax but i go and get them done. then in between visits i will pluck strays. i would say if you go to someone to get waxed make sure they are certified. i think they do a better job.
sorry i havent nor do i know anyone that has had them threaded but good luck with whatever you choose!
oh and i too HATE my eyebrows! :)

I go to a lady who owns her own salon. She's great it's taken me six years to find someone I like as a beautician. The one I used to go to moved, and my MIL led me to Rhonda. She fantastic. She waxes them and I pluck between visits.

I used to have really thin eyebrows and they were so ugly so I let them grow out which was very hard for me! After they grew out a little bit the woman that does my hair waxed them into a cute shape. I pluck them now. They look so much better now though... when I look at old pics Im ok omg they were so ugly!

Ugh I know! I've let them grow for 3 weeks now. I was like "I canít believe how thin they were!" I want a fuller brow with a nice arch. Unfortunately I've had bad luck with the ladies that done my brows, but I have my faith set on these threading Indian ladies lol, my SIL tells me they're awesome! lol

I get mine waxed where I get my hair cut. And OMG...I took Charlie for a hair cut Saturday and asked if someone was available to do my eyebrows. WHAT A MISTAKE not having my regular girl do them. This girl completely eliminated my arch!!! I look like I'm confused all the time now!!!! Gah!!! I'm not happy at all!!!

Let us know how it goes, Disco. I'm curious to know if it hurts at all and if you're happy with the results.
I had 'permanent makeup' done on my eyebrows about 4 years ago. Permanent makeup is just another way to say tattoo, really. The girl did a fantastic job. It has faded some, but that's a good thing. It's the shape that I really love. I'm currently undergoing electrolysis to eliminate the brows that are "outside the lines" of the permanent makeup. The electrolysis is a process, that's for sure! Just when you think you've got them all... bam! Time for another appointment.

Threading is the way to go. I've been threading mine for about 13 years now it is kinda painful the more hair you have the more it hurts you said yours are bushy so expect the pain it wont be so bad if you maintain them go every 2 or 3 weeks, just don't go to any Tom,Dick,or Harry because any one can thread not any one can give you a nice shape have them start of little by little until you get the shape you want, do you like your s-i-l eyebrows? Every body has a different shape to start with so look at the customers that go before you see what threader does the best job. Good Luck you wont regret it. DONT WAX !!!
