    :confused: Has anyone ever had their eyebrows threaded? Would you recommend it? There is an Asian beauty salon near me charging £4 (compared to Frasers/Debenhams £14!) and thinking of trying it but am a bit of a wimp with pain!

    Its not painful, not anymore than plucking.

    Anyone who charges more than £5 is ripping you off, I do it myself. Its just a bit of thread in a loop, twisted and you use your fingers to move the twist along. I'm a bit chicken and worry I will wreck my eyebrows or catch an eyelash, but its saveable if you do, you can get the hairs out before you pull them if you notice!

    Go for it if you want, £4 isn't bad :)

    I had it done a couple of times and it's so much better than waxing (I have very dry skin on my face and it peels off after waxing). But I would only recommend it to someone whose brows are thick and dark. It's perfect for those who have bushy eyebrows, not so perfect for those with fair and thin ones.

    Thanks for the replies peeps!:)

    Tinsley-ouch I could never do that myself-I'm bad enough plucking!

    I have fair hair/eyebrows and quite pale skin so my eyebrows aren't too obvious-don't need to do too much with them but just fancied a new shape and a bit of a tidy up!

    Will maybe give it a go anyway-nothing to lose!!
