Ever wondered if threading hurts? I did, back when I settle on plucking.

Last week, I went to the mall to get an eyebrow shave. The beautician and receptionist asked me though if I would like to try threading. At first, I was hesitant with all the info in mind that it hurts so bad. I said maybe some other time. Maybe when I am ready for the pain.

When I got to my seat, I asked the beautician once again if I could tolerate threading. I think I could since my threshold in pain is high. I was just too scarred from all the reviews I read. I also had other considerations other than the pain. I am thinking that my brows would be thinner. I hate thin eyebrows. I just want the clean sophisticated look. So, I had to really stress not to overly do it. After all the discussions and assurance, I went for threading. 

Honestly, it really hurts. It made me cry especially when threading the innermost part of the brows --near the nose part. As I've said, I have a high threshold for pain but still it really hurt.

On a positive note, if you want a clean brows without those little popping hair after you shave, threading could give you that result. Because usually, I am still in dire need to pluck my brows after a shave. They told me that it could last up to two weeks and I would have to agree. My brows are still neatly shaped for days. They reminded me though that I have to go back in two weeks time so that it wouldn't hurt much after a couple more threading/get used to the pain little by little.

After the threading, I looked like (picture below). That's already 5 days after threading without even plucking it until now. It still is clean.

For additional do's and dont's, don't wash your face after having one. Don't expose your brows to water. It's like you had your facial. The pores in your brows are open and water could make your skin chickeny with all the pores getting visible. Be ready to see your brows in flaming red. It was really awkward to walk with red brows. It was like I had a brow facial but the redness came off after a few minutes. If you do not want the attention, bring shades.   
If you're still at the point questioning yourself if you should get eyebrow plucking or shaving or threading, here is a little background story:

Second year high school, my eyebrows were still virgin. Then, I saw a big difference in one of my classmate. She arrived in school the usual but she got prettier. We looked at her and wondered why. Was it just because she was just blooming that day, we asked. Then, we realized that it was her brows. It certainly made her a lot prettier. Due to that, I tried it as well and from then on, I regularly pluck it or go to a parlor to get a shave. I must say, shaving your eyebrows perfectly could make a big difference. Try it. Just don't over pluck it and get ready for positive remarks!
