I want them done properly! I have never done this before so am looking for recommendations - I work in London SW1

Harrods. They have a mad woman called Nina in their beauty thing, which is called something like 'Urban Retreat'. Or something. It's on the 5th floor anyway. You have to book, and it's £20 or thereabouts.

oooh harrods! How long does it take frogs? is it tweezing or threading?

I'm curious to know how 'threading' works - can someone please explain?

I hate Harrods myself, but made and exception for this. She did both tweezing and threading, and waxing as well -- clearly I was turning into Dennis Healey without realising it. Threading involves the person looping a length of cotton round the hairs and then pulling -- she held one end in her teeth, but I wasn't really in a position to observe in detail how it worked. But it did, and wasn't too agonising.

The whole thing takes about 20 mins.

Try Shavata at MichaelJohn (if she is still there). She is fantastic, does loads of famous peeps eyebrows and is about £20.

She's brilliant isn't she kama? I mean, she even gave my eyebrows a hair cut with scissors (that says a lot about my eyebrows!)

My eyebrows aren't big and bushy, more shapeless, straggly and mousy. I'm growing them in preparation amnd it's quite horrifying.

I love the fact two of you have recommended the same woman.

I had Shavata too, a while ago, though. Brilliant
