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.
