From the article: Threading Hair Removal 101
Have you gotten your eyebrows threaded? I personally love it, but I know some people who have absolutely hated it. I know a lot depends on the person actually doing the threading. So that's why we want to hear about your experience. What Did You Think?
- It has its good and bad. Sometimes The technician will scrape and cut my skin because the technician might not be that experienced. And long term will it leave scars.

- I just got my eyebrows and lip threaded. It was very quick, and though it stung at that moment, it wasn't very painful afterwards. I did notice redness in the brow and lip area, but that's to be expected. I also saw some swelling above my lip, which I didn't expect, but that subsided after about 30 minutes to an hour. My technician seemed very experienced, pulling swaths of hair off all at once, without much unnecessary pain. This is the first time I've gotten any hair removal done professionally (I just have some peach fuzz and the ends of my brows have a couple stray hairs- I did this especially for prom and just because I wanted to see how it felt), and I'm actually impressed by how much of a difference I see in my face. I think my eyes look more defined and my lips looks more full. I was definitely pleased and I'll keep coming back.

- Most painful thing I have ever gotten done. I got my lip done and my hair was really thick from shaving it prior. I was crying. Usually I pluck them but I decided to get this done since this was cheaper. I'm never doing it again and my pain level is high.

- I had mine threaded 2 days ago. I didn't think it was painful at all and much better shape than waxing but I have lumps around my eyebrows. Does anyone know why?

- Because I have very rapid hair growth, I have it done every 2 to 3 weeks. It is less painful if the hair isn't long. I also have loose, sensitive skin. So sometimes I have redness. A cool damp compress on the face helps reduce the redness. I have a very good person doing this and the facial massage at the end of the full face hair removal is heavenly.

Worst pain ever
- Don't do it. It was the worst pain ever. I wanted to stop her and run out of the place, but she had only done part of one eye brow.

- I've been having my brows, and various other parts of my face, threaded for about eight months. I'll definitely never be plucked or waxed again. I have the same technician, who knows how I like my brows, and for me, it is quick, painless,and inexpensive.

- It hurt a little almost like tweezers, but it is a lot quicker. I went to a place called Arch 2 Arch. My eyes did water a little, but mine water whenever I pluck them. My eyebrows and the area around them had a tingle type feeling for around 20 minutes after I had them done. My eyebrows were a litttle red.
- —Guest Katie
- It was quick and my eyebrows had perfect shape, I will do it again.

- I had my eyebrows threaded for the first time yesterday and found the experience quick and much less painful than waxing. The results were impressive. I'm told it lasts for four weeks (waxing only lasts two weeks for me), so that's a bonus. I will definitely continue with this.

Worth it to me
- I am allergic to most waxes so I decided to try threading. Eyebrows do hurt somewhat, but it is getting easier. I've been going every two weeks for my chin and every four for chin/eyebrows. I clean them up in between with tweezers. I'm actually thinking of going to 3 weeks for chin and 6 weeks for eyebrows. I've been going for about 4 months and I am seeing a difference in the regrowth.

- Have tried a few places to get ours done and wihtout hesitation we can say that Forever Shine is by far the best! No fluorescent blinding lights above you and you are lying down comfortably, not in a chair with the next customers all staring at you. The results are sensational. If you get them done properly at forever shine, you will notice that it changes the entire shape of your face, like having great bone structure! Seriously. It's the best! We will never settle for going anywhere else!!

- I'm such an eyebrow fanitac ever since I started to acquire a unibrow as a tween, I've been obsessed with the perfect eyebrow shape, which is why I'm loathe to let anyone else tackle (and potentially butcher) them. Recently I've finally decided that they're a tiny bit too thin, I want to go for a more modern, natural look. And so I'm going through the torture of growing them out (thankfully helped by a thick blunt fringe to hide all sins). When I grow them out enough, I think I'll build up the courage to surrender my tweezers and get them threaded. It does make me anxious just thinking about letting someone else near my brows though!

- Since being diagnosed with PCOS I'm at a bit of a loss! I might give this a go until my treatment kicks in properly. My boyfriend gets back from a 2-month posting in 2 days... Keeping my fingers crossed! :)

Painful and red
- I have had my eyebrows threaded and it was extremely painful, she took off WAY more than I said and it was freakishly red for more than 3 days. I don't know if a more experienced person would have done that but they would have to come extremely highly recommended for me to do it again.
