I first heard about eyebrow threading about 5 years ago. However, only recently, 3 days ago to be exact, did I decide to go and finally try out this procedure. I went to a salon I had seen that advertised eyebrow threading and was actually quite excited to see if my results would be as great as those I had seen online. About 10 minutes after sitting down for the procedure, the threader was done and I was not happy. My eyebrows were still extremely thick (I had purposely grown them in over the course of a few months) and the arch was not suitable for my face shape. The threader also didn’t prep my skin, so afterwards I felt a bit abused. The procedure hurt and now my skin was very irritated. I paid- and tipped the threader and went on my way. While walking home however, I saw another salon and walked in to see if she could properly give me the look I wanted. She did. I like a very, very thin brow and high arch and she gave me exactly what I asked for.
What I didn’t ask for however, I got about 24 hours later- a rash.
My brow area now has red little bumps- even though I read that threading doesn’t irritate the skin or cause rashes. I can’t figure out if it was the threading or the highly perfumed lotion that was put on my brows after each threading. Even worse, because I went to 2 different people- I don’t know exactly who to blame.
So all in all, I love my super thin brows- but doubt I’ll be threading again anytime soon
Anyone else ever tried this procedure and if so, what were your results?
