Hi all. I am in the process of moving to a new job where I have to follow dress codes and look really groomed.
So far, eyebrows haven't been a big issue for me as they aren't really bushy. But now I need to get them trimmed regularly and that is a pain. It's hard for me to do them myself (I hate threading my body).
Is there something you would recommend for this please? I dont really need to get rid of a lot. A bit of trimming and then some sort of liner (wonder brow recommended?).
Thanks in advance smile

Sorry but the point is to try and save money and I think this debneham idea can cost ££?
Something that could help me do it at home quickly? I have seen things that look like lipsticks but are actually small razors/epilators. Or a threading handle.
That sort of thing is what I was hoping for.

It's only a fiver to get them threaded in Superdrug

Yeah, Superdrug is a fiver and lasts weeks and weeks ime.

Yes to Superdrug. My local bright place only charges £8 for dying and waxing though.

Do you live close to an Indian or Pakistani or Bangladeshi area? If so you can usually get access to excellent quality eyebrow threading / waxing for £1-2 a pop.

I highly recommend threading. I've tried so many different places over the years, and now I've finally found what I believe to be a great place.

Thank you very much everyone. I don't live near any Indian or Pakistani places. But there are two Superdrug stores near me so that is something I will try now.
What do you mean by threading? Did you mean to day DIY threading? Can you please explain a bit?

I think confused means she's tried lots of different places and now has found a great threading place she's happy with.

That's makes sense then. I will start with Superdrug+wonderbrow and see where it takes me. Thank you every one smile
