I now feel so silly for worrying about getting it done! I'm sure I am not the only one who had visions of the lady taking my entire eyebrow off...
I got my eyebrows threaded at a brow bar in Debenhams for £7.
The lady was really friendly and invited me to lye back in a chair (a bit like a dentist.) She then told my that I needed to pull back the skin while she threaded. Personally, I didn't think it hurt at all. :) The feeling is really hard to describe but I would compare it to being scratched. It doesn't hurt as much as waxing. After 5 minutes I was all done! I was left with a little redness but that faded after an hour.
I specifically told her that I didn't want much doing just neatening up. And that is exactly what she did! I kind of like having thick eyebrows opposed to a twig above my eye, so she just took away stray hairs and defined the shape. These pictures don't show much of a difference but there definitely is! - Especially the hairs underneath my eyebrow! Next time I will probably have a little more done, but for a first time I just wanted a shape and to see what it is like, then I can develop from there! I am so happy with the outcome and they look so much better! I just wish I had them done years ago!
TOP TIP: WEAR WATERPROOF MASCARA!!! The combination of threading around my eyelid and me holding back my skin in that area, made my eyes water! As I was holding down my eyelid I completely smudged my mascara and once I was done I had to make a dash for Debenham toilets, which are inconveniently situated on the very top floor!
I am so happy with my experience. I am definitely going to be returning!
