Anyway, I have been considering threading. Threading is a techniue used by skilled professionals to remove facial hair. It uses a piece of thread in a scissor-like action and it's meant to last for weeks. I have heard it's great and also it's not that great! I am deciding whether or not to try it?
Here is a lil background info from an article I read:
"This method of hair elimination has a number of advantages. For instance, it is neat, rather fast, inexpensive and it is considered to be less painful than plucking. It is good for eyebrows and its effect, like after plucking, can last up from two to four weeks.Compared to waxing, hair removal threading has a number of benefits as well. First of all, it does not peel off a layer of skin. After the procedure the hair does not grow back as fast. Skin does not get as irritated and red. Hair removal threading can pull off specific individual hair. Besides, the hair doesn't have to be long, but just above the skin. The procedure will never produce more hairs or make hairs stronger. Hair removal threading is really good at picking up the finest hair from the surface leaving skin smooth."
For those who live in Perth- I think Matt Yuko in Claremont is the best one in town that does eyebrow shaping (Not threading) but it costs $50 a session. I tried it once and was impressed. But I think you need to continue going there on a regular basis to keep it well maintained. Plus he is so hard to get a booking. You need to be on waiting lists or book few months in advance! Crazy! I don't know how my eyebrows will be like in a few months! ahaha
At the moment I do my eyebrows myself but would like someone to "shape it" for me and I just tweeze the rest. I also cut my hairs since it gets really ruly and untidy! I avoid shaving though!
Please! If anyone has recommendations or other type of methods you use that worked great for you - let me in on your secret! :P
