    We went to the nearest mall last night (50 miles away ) and I saw people getting their eyebrows threaded. I really didn't stop for long to watch and was wondering if any of you have had this done before.

    I think it's like plucking, with a tiny loop around the hair?

    I have really fair eyebrows so I just tidy them up with a sculpting razor.

    Yes, I have, and it's painless and I prefer it to waxing, but that was when I lived "up north". I can't find anyone within 50 miles who does it [​IMG]

    You should try it. Now, I can't guarantee *you* won't find it painless, but I did. My lady also did my upper lip and that was MUCH better than getting it waxed. I don't remember if it was painless, but I think it was. For me, my upper lip is worse than any other area that I had waxed. So...I wish I could find someone who knows how to do it.

    Never heard of it.
    Is it like eye brow pierceing?

    To me (I didn't watch for long) it looked like they were taking these 2 thread-like things and using them to pull the hair out. They were also selling false eyelashes.

    That sounds painful. I don't think I would be comfortable with someone sticking a needle near my eye either. [​IMG]

    Ok, Found this link. It's not what I thought it would be, but I still wouldn't want someone standing over me with a needle. [​IMG]

    I used to work with someone who would pluck out every last eyebrow hair, and then draw them back on with eyebrow pencil. She looked like a freaky scary clown. Take care not to go to extremes.
