Thready or Not

By October 9, 2009#Life

Have you seen those ads for threading rather waxing eyebrows?  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen them and either cringed or laughed at them.

Well, a great friend of mine (who shall remain nameless), had it done.  She told me it didn’t hurt very much, and on a recent stop at the Mall of America, she paid for me to get my eyebrows threaded.

So a woman on a blue tooth, speaking to someone on the other end of the line in a language I don’t know (the ENTIRE time she threaded me), had me hold my eyelid closed, and pull the skin on my forehead up.  Uh… right.  So I looked like an idiot.  Big deal, that’s not a first.  She proceeds to thread my eyebrows, and the quick and painless process -as it was described by my friend- was at least quick.  As for the pain… tears managed to leak from between tightly closed eyes, and slid down my cheeks.  Um… OUCH!!!  All I can say about it is that she did a good job, it was fast, and recovery time was better than waxing (because it doesn’t tear skin off ).  So ladies (or guys -hey, I’m not judging), I suppose in the end it’s up to you.  To thread or not to thread?  That is the question.

    I went with my friends to have it done in a sketchy apartment in St. Paul. My friend found her on craigslist. Honestly, I enjoy tweezing too much to thread.

  • Jill says:

    :O) is all you have to say because it doesn’t hurt ‘some’ people like it hurts others… 🙂

    Matt thought they were nice. What did your Matt think of yours?
