Dammmmmmn look at them brows!!
Haha! 14 year old me had it going ON y’all.
It was right around this age where I first learned about this thing called “getting your eyebrows waxed.”
I was sitting in history class with my (much cooler) friend, Kristin, and she was telling me about a brow appointment she had.
“But that sounds like it hurts!” I told her. To which she said, “A little… but honestly… you kind of need it done too. Like, you don’t have a uni or anything, but….”
So there I was, post-wax, plastic hand held mirror in hand… forehead red as hell. Took one look at my reflection and said, “Okay okay! I get it! I look good.”
And so began my $20(ish.. with tip) monthly beauty habit. 14 years later, that’s around $3,360 I must have spent on my brows in my lifetime. What the shit. I’ll justify that to myself later. (Good brows make me feel better!!)
I’m lazy with my brows though, I don’t fill them in ever (although they’d probably look way better) and I’ve tweezed maybe 8 times in my entire life. I’ve always been dependent on a good ole’ brow wax.
But after 14 years of brow waxing, I decided to switch it up last month. I tried threading.
Which got me thinking, what’s the difference??
So… from our research, here are the differences with waxing and threading. Hopefully it gives a little insight.
In case you were wondering, I’m going to try threading one more time since I thought the regrowth was slower. But shit does it hurt… I don’t know if I could continue with it. Cynthia says NO WAY and she’s sticking to waxing… her brows are always on point.
Do you guys thread, wax or pluck? Any recommendations in SF? Share your thoughts! Let’s have some girl talk 🙂
