Sort of Peer Pressure

Update: Do-it-yourself threading info here. Trust me, you really wouldn't want to do it yourself cause until you're proficient it hurts. But at least you can get an idea of the process. Here is one lady's experience.

*********************
I got my virgin eyebrows threaded today at lunch. In the past 32 years I've never waxhed, trimmed, or noticeably plucked my eyebrows. My husband and son have near-perfect eyebrows which I don't think is fair so when my co-worker said she was going to get hers touched up today I agreed to go with her. I had gone before but only watched. Today, I sat through my teary-eyes and almost clenched fists while the lady worked on me. It wasn't too painful to bear but I did wonder what I was really doing there sitting in that chair. Here are a couple of before and after pix. I'm sure you will agree the new brows are an improvement over the au naturel look, although the polished look will take some getting used to.

The original that was me this morning.


I hardly recognize myself now!

What is threading? The first time I had my brows plucked I cried like a baby but when I looked in the mirror ... I swear it took 10 years off my face. Now I'm hooked.

I've heard about threading but never thought it would come out as "clean" as waxing. Yours look great though. I just might try it.

You look good, girl!

Your eyebrow area looks polished. I imagine that entertainers and models get this done to maintain a professional look, too.

okay, until i saw your before and after photos i didn't realize how much of a difference threading was on eyebrows.

WOW. your eyebrows look AWESOME. and i'm not even an eyebrow person. i mean, i generally don't even pay attention to that kind of stuff and have never had my eyebrows touched either.

i'm considering it now though...

Lately I've been hearing a lot about threading. Your eyebrows look good. Maybe I'll try it soon.

Welcome to the world of threading! That's the only way to do it. My eyes water everytime I do it but it's worth it. The result last longer than waxing, and it give a sharper line.

You look lovely!

Yeah! It's never to late to do something you've never done before. They look neat!
