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?!
