Bought some yesterday after reading about them on here ages ago.

I am a convert for life - I tell you, it usually takes me about 10-15 minutes to do my eyebrows because the tweezers always slip so you are going over the same bit forever - oh no, not with these babies.

Two minutes tops and I was done, neater, less painful, easy peasy, it was almost enjoyable.

And they come with a green case so mine won't go rusty after I leave them in the bathroom anymore hmm

brilliant, thanks MM,

am off out for posh dinner at Oxo tonight and was hoping to go get threaded but time is scarce. This may be the answer to reigning in the caterpillars that are crawling over my face

What IS "having ones eyebrows threaded"? Am curious

LadyLaGore Sat 18-Oct-08 11:52:26


just been failing to get the last couple of tiddlers out of my mums eyebrows.

[puts on shopping list]

ditto shiny

UmMwahahahaaaaa Sat 18-Oct-08 11:57:04

I stoodand waited in Selfridges once as I decided that I would go an get my eyebrows threaded. One look at the tears coming out of the participant's eyes, and the red raw eyebrow and I scarpered!

LadyLaGore Sat 18-Oct-08 12:01:01

but what did they do with the thread?

Tweezerman's are great, but never drop them point-down on a hard tile floor. THe points will be knocked out of alignment and will never grip properly again sad

There is a thread that they twist in their fingers and put next to your eyebrows and they move the twist which catches the hair and pulls it off. Sorry bit of a rubbish explanation.

God, it sounds murderous! You must have to hate yourself to have that done! Waxing seems less distressing...

LetThemEatCake Sat 18-Oct-08 12:31:46

gosh, threading is great - and not really that painful at all. What's a little pain for an instant facelift??

ShinyHappyPurpleSeveredHeads Sat 18-Oct-08 12:32:40

It would take more than some messing with my eyebrows to facelift me hmm

norksinmywaistband Sat 18-Oct-08 12:35:19

eybrowthreading it looks horrid, but i'm a wimp

LadyLaGore Sat 18-Oct-08 12:54:19

wow, that looks really cool. thanks

PoppyCoc Sat 18-Oct-08 12:56:44

Waxing isnt painful

Flamesparrow Sat 18-Oct-08 13:01:19

How much are they?

I have some nice tweezers but VERY pointy and a bit of a nightmare.

I like the warmness of waxing

MARGOsBeenPlayingWithMyNooNoo Sat 18-Oct-08 13:05:07

lol, This is not how I imagined they did it.

In my ignorance, I thought they wound a thread around a single hair to remove it. Could you imagine how time consuming that would be.

MARGOsBeenPlayingWithMyNooNoo Sat 18-Oct-08 13:07:21

shiny grin

I use tweezerman tweezers, they're wonderful. My dh borrows them sometimes hmm and doesn't put them back. I'm lost without them.

Tillyscoutsmum Sat 18-Oct-08 13:08:20
