In the past few years, I’ve become a total eyebrow threading advocate. While it may seem a little odd if you’ve never had it done before, or prefer to stick to traditional waxing, I’m all about it!
I find that in my area, a good eyebrow threading job is less than half the price of a good eyebrow wax/shaping. (SCORE!) I also like that I’m less red from threading than I get from waxing, and I also experience less chance of post-waxing bumps and breakouts.
Threading also pulls your delicate eyelids much less than waxing does. That residual pulling over time will eventually take its toll. I don’t need any help in the eyelid sagging department, thank you very much! And finally, it’s fast. In good hands, it takes about five to seven minutes for a good shaping job and clean up.
If I’ve sold you on the benefits of a good thread job, and you’re in the L.A. area (or visiting soon), don’t miss Thread Eyebrows on Melrose. Sure, it’s called “Thread Eyebrows” but they specialize in threading all of the areas on your face. Eyes, lip, chin, cheeks, they do it all—at prices that don’t gouge you like typical L.A. salons. Your brows will set you back $15, but I know of other salons in the area that charge $50 and up for eyebrow waxing—so take your pick! My technician got me in and out in a flash, and my brows were sharp and clean, just the way I like them.
