A Thread can do that?

Sorry ladies! Seriously, life has been pretty busy lately, but its been as fun as ever. Work has been kicking me in the behind and month end is coming up which means I will be busy again. I just dream of the days where I am busting my butt for my own company instead of "The Man". I promise I will make it up to you.

One thing I get asked about every now and then is about my eyebrows. They are nothing fancy, but I guess its because when I get them done they look really good and are pretty even. I will admit that back in middle/high school I had the super thin eyebrows, but I am glad I grew out of that phase during my senior year. My senior year in high school I discovered eyebrow threading.

What is eyebrow threading? They use thread to pull out each hair, kind of like tweezing, but much faster. It is a very good method to use especially if you are growing your eyebrows out. I have never gotten my eyebrows waxed so I can't compare it to that, but I know the precision is much better when threading. Threading does hurt a little when you first do it, but it doesn't take long for you to get used to it. After about 9 years of doing this, I think it feels kind of good? It took me some time to find "my" eyebrow lady, but I will not go to anyone else. I did have someone make them super thin again and it took me months to grow them out.

I like my eyebrows to be on the thicker side because of the size of my face. I also always fill them in with an eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow. I think it makes a huge difference when you do fill in your eyebrows because it really frames your face.

Have you heard of threading before? How do you like it? If not, would you try it? Do you fill your eyebrows in now?

even watching that (no sound!) im still slightly confused how it works, but i would totally try it. after i get waxed they are usually red for 3-4 hours after, so maybe threading wouldnt be as harsh?

Cool. My eyebrows take forever to grow so usually a pluck here and a pluck there does it for me. I fill mine in a little with an eyebrow pencil too.

Good luck with your goal, way to go!

Totally agree with eyebrows framing face etc, I've had my done for years.

Have never heard of Eyebrow threading, very interesting, I wonder if they even do it over here!

Thank you so much for your comment, so lovely.

I have really dark eyebrows so I've never thought to fill them in but I think it would be worth trying.

I have heard of it, but have never done it. I 100% agree with you that eyebrows are very important because they frame the face. I too have been a victim of self-induced skinny brows and it took me forever to grow them out, but I am glad I did. I love how low maintenance they are now. I just tweeze every other day or so, maybe 2-3 stray hairs.

I used to have threading done, it was the best!

I do not have anyone nearby to do it for me anymore!
