and where are you / what type of person or place do you have it done?

i've just had my first experience and i think i like it but i think i paid a fortune and could have got it cheaper...

£8 in Debenhams, I cant remember the exact price, but it was around that.
£8 at a stall in one of the local shopping malls. She was very good.

I don't mind having my eyebrows done in public, but they offer the full men of facial hair removal, I couldn't imagine having my upper lip there!

Sorry, I'm in the Thames Valley.

I pay £7 for eyebrows in beauty mahal, a walk in threading bar, whihc have several stalls around the town centre too. staff usually rude but very quick and a good shape so stick with being ignored and spoken over and hand held out for money with no acknowledgment blush

yikes! i paid much more than that... but as a first-timer i went to a beauty salon i know and trust.. the girl was lovely, but i bet the salon take a massive cut from her.

£3.50 in north London. Even cheaper if I am getting other bits waxed/threaded, they usually knock a few quid off the total.

It's been a while though, I really should book an appointment...

I was about £8 last time I got it done in <whispers> Superdrug! You get given a loyalty card though and the 10th visit is free.

First time I had it done in a department store, the girl caught me unawares and asked if I wanted my lip done. Ohhhhhhhhh bloody nora, it stung. Was like an elastic band being twanged against your face. Have never had it done again!

I pay £4.50 in local asian-owned salon, i love the way threading looks, my eyebrows are done so they are not too thin, and frame my face better than I could ever do myself! Its £7.50 with the upper lip too, but as Fimbo says, its sooooo painful that I only get my brows done. Cheap!!

WillbeanChariot Thu 19-May-11 14:51:37

I get my upper lip done [hardcore emoticon]. It makes my eyes water but it works and it lasts.

chrisrobin Thu 19-May-11 14:56:18

£6 in an independent shop in the West Midlands, it lasts for ages and the 6th visit is free.

apple99 Thu 19-May-11 14:57:36

I pay £14 in a salon in town centre for threading and brow tint, I think just to have threaded in £8. I got handed a card this week when in town and my local Toni & Guy are now offering eyebrow threading for £10. I am in the north west.

Rannaldini Thu 19-May-11 15:32:41

£17 shavata belfast

Rannaldini Thu 19-May-11 15:33:26

get tem tinted too but that is an extra 13£ perhaps I'm being ripped off??

Pagwatch Thu 19-May-11 15:35:31

£12 in our high street which is very high end/expensive.
But it is very convenient and you get a loyalty card . Every five treatment earns you a free go p,us an eyebrow or eyelash tint plus a tache threading [ouch]

Al0uiseG Thu 19-May-11 15:38:10

£85 That's for 6 eyebrow threads and 6 upper lips. I'm obviously being shafted royally but it's one of two similarly priced department stores.

Pagwatch Thu 19-May-11 15:44:52

I guess getting shafted royally as well makes it slightly better value alouisg

virgo1979 Thu 19-May-11 15:50:05

£2.50 from the only indian woman in my area who does it. Bargain. I suggest you find your local 'asian area' and look for beauty salons there, you wouldnt pay more than a fiver. Honestly, they see you coming if you pay that much in department stores....

ChippedChinaTeaCup Thu 19-May-11 16:03:16

£4 on an asian stall in our local market (north london)

MoonGirl1981 Thu 19-May-11 16:17:14

£3. Clapham, London.

Was with my Sil, no idea what it costs where I live (Wiltshire).

Al0uiseG Thu 19-May-11 18:36:00

I live in North Essex, there isn't an Asian area!

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 19-May-11 18:38:02

£17 harvey nichols in bristol at the Blink bar - also do loyalty system and they're very good.

corinewmoon Thu 19-May-11 18:38:22

£3.00 in a stall in the mall in harrow, £7.00 with an eyebrow tint.
I think i once paid 2.50 in a market in south harrow.

PheasantPlucker Thu 19-May-11 18:41:52

£5, sw London
