threading

I decided to try and thread my eyebrows tonight.
A client of mine does it and said that it's really easy.  So, I looked up some tutorials on youtube tonight and gave it a try.

My hubby asked what I was watching and when I said "I'm learning how to thread eyebrows, I think I'm going to give it a try" he got a funny look on his face and said "well...I don't really have any hair on my face that I want to get rid of, but I suppose you could use my leg".  Hee Hee, the poor guy automatically assumed that I would practice on him,  I can't imagine what I must have done in the past to make him think that.

Anyway, I assured him that I was going to try it on myself.  And I did.
If you're not sure what eyebrow threading is, a quick google search will fill you in.
 
Basically you twist in a loop of thread several times until it looks like the picture. By running the twists along your unwanted hairs, they are grabbed and pulled out.  

I just cleaned up my brows a little and it really wasn't that painful.  I'm not confident enough to go as close to the hair I want to keep as the chic in the picture above.

After cleaning up my brows I decided to try my lip....Woah! That hurt.  I was like a lip wax in slow motion.  It hurts more like plucking about 3 hairs out at once, not a nice feeling.  I tried to persevere, but then decided against needless torture.

So, I'm converted to brow threading... anyone want to let me practice on them?!

  4. Um, I'm afraid I'd end up with a bald brow. There's nothing worse, so I think I'm going to pass. I would, however, allow you to practice on me. I'm much more trusting of other people than I am of myself. Maybe I just like having someone other than myself to blame. ;-)
