Threading Eyebrows Over Waxing?


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!

Are my eyebrows done? Yes, but at what cost Grimms? At what cost?

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!

  1. Ive never tried it bc i imagine itll hurt. Just your regular plucking makes me want to cry so i always stick to waxing if im going out to get my eyebrows done. Its all done in one go and it stings for a few seconds but at least its not a prolongued hurt LOL

  2. I go for threading every month, so I have a very good knowledge about it. The first time you go for threading actually hurts like hell or if you haven’t got it done in a while. It also depends on the person who is doing it, if they are experienced enough and are good at it, it doesn’t hurt more than a pinch. But most people make you cry. If you are getting it done every month like I do, it won’t hurt much, specially if the person who is doing it is well experienced. Everytime I move, I go look for a salon which has a good reputation, since I hate pain. Also, I have hair which reaches well below my waist so I am even more careful about who gets near it with a scissor… ๐Ÿ˜„
    And, if you are a person who gets upper lips done too, let me tell you, never ever ever go for threading it, always wax it! Its so painful, I felt like I would die!!

    1. I did feel like crying! Before I went I saw a woman getting her entire face done. I don’t know how she did it. Sadly my city isn’t huge and this is just becoming a thing here so I think this location is one of the only places that do it so I really can’t compare it to anything or one else ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


      1. Oh that’s too bad, don’t go for threading like you decided, go for waxing instead …. One of my hostel mates used to get her entire face threaded too, I used to cringe by just looking at it itself!! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”
        I just moved back to my hometown a few months back and found this amazing place! They are so good, that it was over before I even felt anything. I am a very sensitive person, and I usually start tearing up within the first 30 sec after they start!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ And never get your upper lips threaded, I swear its one of the worst torture methods, you’ll wish it on your enemy… When they thread the portion near your nostril, its like somebody stabbed you to death, its so painful!! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

      2. After I went there was a person who came in for their full face and I was like, “NOOOOOOOOOO!!!” Lol I can’t imagine doing it on my whole face. No, no, no!
