So the other day I was meandering through the mall when I spotted an eyebrow threading spot. Now I myself am a wax type of chica but I’ve heard a lot of people raving about the greatness of threading ones eyebrows.
Mine actually needed a refresher so I thought I’d step outside my comfort zone and give it a shot. For those of you unfamiliar with threading I’m including a video below. I didn’t make this video but it does a good job showing what threading is all about.
I’m going to be 100% honest with you doods. I completely hated it. I hope there are other people reading this with some experience in this subject because I don’t know if it was just the person who did mine or what.
With that said I did talk to a friend of mine and she had the same complaints.
The fact of the matter is threading HURT! I’m not kidding it was so painful and it seemed to last for ages. Full disclosure it made me want to cry.
I’m not saying waxing is completely painless but for me at least it was way better than this. I mean a wax is so quick and you’re getting rid of unwanted hair all at once. A threading is like a really intense plucking…
There is no way I could do this regularly. On top of that I usually find waxing to be a fairly relaxing experience. I normally have my hairdresser do it so I come in, get my hair shampooed, my eyebrows done, and my hair cut, and sit back and chat.
My husband always takes our daughter during this time so it’s a completely relaxing experience where I just Zen out. I love it.
Threading wasn’t like that at all!
It was really awkward and brisk on top of being really painful. There was nothing peaceful about it. Again this could be exclusive to the location that I went to but it was so painful I’m to afraid to ever try it anywhere else!
So to sum it up I’m going to stick to waxing. Threading was just not my thing! You’ll have to let me know in the comments below if you would ever try this.
If you have tried this please share your experiences with us! I’d love to know if this is the norm.
See you next week Grimms!
