Hi,

Anyone know of a good eyebrow threading place around Phila., PA? I'm looking in the burbs North of the city. Thanks,

Too

You can try my stalking investigative research methods I've mentioned in other threads LOL.
I do these things when I move to a new area:

A. If I see an indian lady with nice eyebrows, ask if she knows a place. Even if she doesn't have nice eyebrows - ask her anyways she may know of one, but doesn't bother to go Laughing

B. Go to Indian restaurants and ask if they know of a place.

C. Indian grocery stores will either know of someone or there may be some flyers/business cards of someone that does it from a salon or home.

D. Check this site which has a list of worldwide threaders.(of course not all are listed)

Thanks!

But I did it already. And I love it! My eyebrows are just a bit too thin for me now, but I can fill them in with pencil. It didn't hurt nearly as much as waxing or even plucking. And they are rather precise. Plus, it was quick. I'd do this again but I might shop around for another threader.

To prep, she dipped a swab into powder and on my brows (My skin is very oily). Then she dipped the same swab back in the powder. Yikes. She also held the thread in her mouth (maybe that's normal though), wiped her nose then wiped another client's face with the same hand.

EEK!!!! The holding one end of the thread with the mouth is normal though. That part of the thread does not touch the eyebrows though, but it gives them the leverage and flexibility to control the movement of thread to shape your eyebrow.

You made a good point. I always tell them first thing - not too thin - just shape and clean. Then if it is still to thick they can adjust after, but if it's to thin - it's too late.

Yes, one end of the thread in the mouth is part of the technique. Good idea to find another threader who's more sanitary. I'm hooked on threading! Compared to tweezing my unwanted hair now grows back sooooo slowly and the regrowth is very fine you can barely see them even after 5 weeks

This is going to sound really stupid, but what is threading? I read the post and now I'm intrigued to see what kind of proceedure would involve someone holding a thread in their mouth and working on your eyebrows??? Question Question Laughing

It's a method of hair removal for your brows. They actually take a thread and wrap it around the hairs and yank them out. It's so quick and rather precise. It only cost me 6 bucks. Sounds painful but it wasn't for me. I think it's popular among Indian/Pakistani women. Four asian women were in the shop when I walked in. If you hate plucking and waxing, I'd say try it.
