my eyebrows are out of control. They grow longgggg and sometimes even curl. They are not overly thick so i can't tweeze the irritating beggars so what on earth can i do with them. BTW, they look really stupid when i trim them because they are dark....

your best bet is probably to go to a professional to help manage them. if you don't know who to go to, ask someone whose eyebrows you like and ask where they go to have them done.

I have good eyebrows naturally, but since some time ago started having my eyebrows done by threading. And I like the results a lot. Threading usually done by women (e.g. hair dressers) from Middle East or India.

Is threading more or less painful than plucking? I've always been curious to have it done.

I think threading is comparable to plucking. I do not have lots of extra hair, but threading is faster and looks great. In addition to threading they also trim eyebrows to give nicer shape.

I thought that I did not need professional services for my eyebrows, but I am glad that my hairdresser at that time (that happened to be from India) offered to do my eye brows with threading. Now I keep on having my eyebrows done. Currently I have my hair done at one place and go to Iranian woman just for eyebrows.

The more I read, the more I want to do threading instead of waxing. I think I'm going to see if my brow waxist gal can thread, or if she has a referral. I worry that over time, waxing will cause me to lose elasticity in that skin right below my brow bone. Plus, I'm super-pale and sensitive, so I look BRIGHT red all around my brows for a good couple days! Laughing

Both women that did threading for me offered waxing services as well. I asked both of them what on their opinion is better threading or waxing, and both replied that they favored threading over waxing. The reason was just the same as you specified waxing pulls the skin more.

I always have my brows threaded, it is the only way to keep a nice shape and even if I resort to plucking I go back at least once every 8 weeks to help refine the arch. Threading is not very painful, and less messy than waxing, most beauticians who are experienced in threading will be able to give anyone a good shape to suit their face. Also consider trimming the hair (most people think you cannot do anything else but pluck or thread to shape a brow) and it is OK to remove the hair above the eyebrow too!!

Ooh! I would love to try this my eyebrows are a mess I've just left them alone now after too many plucking disasters. I have heard you can have them threaded at debenhams, but I would know where. Where can you get your eyebrows threaded?

I've always wanted to try threading but I live in a samll town and no one does it around here. So what I did is go to a professional to have them shaped. Then I bought one of those small personal shavers (about the size of a big thick pencil) that have an accessory that you can trim long or trim short. I attach the trim long accessory and run it over my eyebrows and it trims the hair to a good length so I don't have long stray hairs sticking up anymore.

This is a good question... The majority of Indian and Middle Eastern women does threading.
* If you know one of such women they should be able to help you.
* Also you can ask in hair salons if they have Indian/ME hair dressers. It should not be necessarily an expensive salon, you can get great eyebrows from an inexpensive one. I have my hair done at expensive salon, and eyebrows done at a totally different place (inexpensive one).
* One more option to go to an Indian grocery store in your area and ask women there, in fact I used to know one Indian grocery store where they did threading right in this store.

i already have one of these with the attachments long and short, but can't remember which attachment is for short and which is for long. I also have no idea how that works. Do you sort of comb it through the brow from the temple to the nose or the other way around?

I've been afraid to try it in case i shave off my entire brow... Laughing

You should visit a beauty shop... or a salon, they do it for only about $15 each time. They'll design, trim, wax, and make your eyebrows perfect each time!!

Be careful though, if you decide to let them wax your eyebrows, don't do it right before your big date. Waxing'll make you look super red!! Sad That's the only thing I don't like about it...

Right. Since you have that big problem on your eyebrow, why don't you go to professional service?

I definitely agree that you should go to a professional to get your eyebrows done if you aren't having success at home. It may look bad when you try to trim your eyebrows, but a professional would know how to do it and make your eyebrows look great.

Threading is great for your situation. If you can't pluck then I would get them threaded. Its cheaper and not as painful as waxing.

One of my close male friends admits that threading is the most effect way to tame his bush! I think I might try it out myself.

my friend (who's a makeup artist) taught me to use a clear mascara (a cheap one would do) to hold the brows in place.

2 things i do.

1. get a microtouch trimmer. i use it to shape my eyebrows to my preference. then use the long or short attachment to control the length of the hairs.

2. some people prefer slanted tweezers but i noticed the flat square ones are easier for plucking those hard tiny hairs.

hope this helped.
