Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
Before reading the piece above from Time, I never thought of a possible downside to the hair removal process of threading. I'm glad to be educated more about it. The above link is a question and gives both sides, the benefits and the rare risks that could be involved in the procedure.
Have any of you tried the procedure? If so, tell us where you go and what you think about it.
I think there should be some regulations, cosidering the close contact and chance of bleeding. Just like with nails...it's rare that you bleed, but it happens. The article goes on to state that there have been recorded cases of warts, staph, etc. spread from eyebrow threading. Rare, but still a risk.
I can also understand the other side, saying that the cosmetology license isn't really relevant (teaches hair, nails and makeup) and can cost thousands of dollars...perhaps they need to come up with a shorter version for eyebrow threading only. Don't they have different ones for facials only, or massage only? Something like that might be good.
I just saw my sister yesterday and her eyebrows looked so amazing, I had to say so. She perked right up and said, "I did eyebrow threading". I was in awe. I must have it done. She said she did it at Lakeland Square Mall, which isn't a small jog for me on the south side of Bartow. Do any of you know if there are other locations in Polk offering this service that would be a little closer to where I am?
I regularly wax, if I didn't I would be sporting the Brooke Shields look, and actually it was a nickname my sister and I had given to us often because of our thick eyebrows. I do own my own wax warmer and sometimes do my own, but it's hard to close and squint my eyes and see what I'm doing at the same time. It's just easier to have someone do it for me. My issue with waxing is it grows back so fast and some small hairs are usually missed. I've heard with the threading every hair is removed. And wow, I couldn't help but be super impressed by my sister's brows, they looked so good!
I'm willing to try it once, but completely see what you mean about a quick swipe vs continual pulling with the threading.

I have had the eyebrow threading done once, it was actually a lot more painful than waxing! I would rather wax and have one quick swipe then having row after row done. This was really painful. I didn't have any clue about the risks, reading this makes we wish I haven't done it. I don't know about anyone else have you used nair for eyebrows. I was just thinking about girls with allergies, is nair an option? Waxing is way better I think, minimal pain for maximum beauty! :) Just a suggestion.
