Geting my eyebrows threaded for th first time. I like then but they re a bit scruffy. Will it hurt? And does it stay red for long? Have night out ths week and worried it will go wrong! Any advice? Thx

I had mine done for the first time a month ago. Took 5minutes, didn't really hurt and the result was amazing. They look very natural and not "over done". The only thing is I have long hairs so did consider asking her to trim the hairs aswell. Not sure though. Redness was barely noticeable.

It did sting, a lot. But I'm pregnant so I think that makes things more painful. No redness after and they really look nice, much more natural than waxing.

It takes about 5 minutes, hurts (me) more when I'm on my period and the redness goes in half an hour tops.

All done! Hurt like hell and the noise! But look fab so threading always from now on. Thx ladies...

Hurts and the ripping noise isn't nice. I have quite sensitive skin and it leaves redness for 24 hours or so. I need to find an alternative to threading and waxing!

It hurts but having my lip area done was far worse. It gives you fab brows and shouldn't stay red for long. Wierdly, people commented on how nice my brows looked.

I went for waxing with top lip. Glad I did tbh. No one has commented on my brows, but they weren't really bad. I got them trimmed to, it was fine. Did quiz beautician on experience before she started thoughsmile
