Never had it done, i have very fair eyebrows but everything I read about grooming insists it's a must? Is it?? And what's best, pluck wax or thread? [Confused]

It does make a difference.

I've got very fair eyebrows too and mostly cba but on the rare occasions I've had them done, it does look better.

But my fringe covers them so much now, there's not a lot of point grin

Worth the pain???

Hell yes, I couldn't believe it when I first got mine done.

Yes, it will make you look nice. I prefer waxing as with threading you have to help by holding your eye lid and I always think I'm somehow doing it wrong!

Ok going to do it!!!

It's quite brilliant. But not as ace as having them tinted. I'm almost addicted to this.

Im v dark and have them done "brown black". I look like they're drawn in with felt pen for 24 hours (have them done when you're not going out) then make your face look so groomed.

Lol at hurting. Not at all

I have mine waxed, not very expensive and they do look pretty good when they are done.

Orianne Sun 26-May-13 17:37:32

I hate it when mine need done. I get mine threaded and waxed. I look so much better with them shaped.

Orianne Sun 26-May-13 17:37:57

I meant to say... Threaded and tinted

I get mine waxed and it does make a difference sort of frames and uplifts a bit. It doesn't hurt much - I'm a bit pink for a couple of hours. Never tried threading but I've been heard it,s a bit gentler on your skin but more painful cos it takes longer.

I just got mine done today!! I started getting them threaded and tinted about 6 months ago and yes it makes a huge difference.

It does hurt a bit but I have tried a few people now and I know the lady who I like! I love how they look when they just tinted but doesn't last long enough.

Am thinking I will book mine in for Tuesday can't wait now!
