i am a waxer. I will never ever have my eyebrows threaded. I have heard too many horror stories.
that being said, i only go to people who have a license- a cosmetology license or an esthetician license. I have had friends who go to the nail mills and have had them done there and got them so messed up.
it is a law in most states that they need to be licensed.

I've done both. I think waxing hurts more, and threading lasts longer. Alas, the lady I go to doesn't do threading. I like her enough to keep going, but there is a place in my town that does threading. I may have to check them out.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

Hey to each their own. If we want to wax our eyebrows, let us be. Some of us have wild eyebrows and look much better when we get it done.

I think they hurt about the same but I prefer waxing. I think it is quicker and the one time I had threading done my forehead broke out like crazy.

I've never threaded, but when I was getting my brows waxed regularly (every couple of months - I have light hair), it was a lot less painful than plucking.

I have no idea which one hurts less since I have never plucked or waxed my eyebrows. I say let them be and save the money for a rainy day.

My friend told me that threading was more uncomfortable than waxing. I either wax or pluck my eyebrows.

No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.

I've had my eyebrows waxed and I didn't think it was that bad. No worse than tweezing. I've never had threading done.

I've never had either done. My eyebrows are naturally thin and shaped.

Neither hurts. I would put both at far less than 1 on the pain scale.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzón, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba

Sorry I have done neither, but my daughter has and she says threading is more uncomfortable than waxing. Good luck!

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I'm wondering what hurts less waxing? or threading I believe it's called when they do your eyebrows..... how painful would you say it is for waxing if you've had it done and or threading?
