I'm a total baby when it comes to pain. I've never waxed anything on my body. I've tried tweezing my eyebrows a time or two but only ended up in the same sort of tears I get when cutting an onion. Threading sounds equally horrible to me. I usually use a tiny electric razor or nothing on my brows.

All good and fine until...

I'm supposed to make an appearance at a fundraiser to promote my biz, and the event will be giving free eyebrow threading, which etiquette says I HAVE to do...with others watching.

Please tell me you've tried this and it's not horrible.

I have never tried eyebrow threading. However, I have been plucking my eyebrows with tweezers since the 6th grade.Since I have been tweezing it for soooo many years I can't feel any pain there. It doesn't hurt AT ALL.

how long until this event takes place?

if it's 2 weeks out or more, go get your eyebrows waxed and shaped, then there will be a little neatening to do but nothing major.

I've threaded. And to be totally honest... It's kind of a suckfest. Ginni is absolutely correct on this. Go get them waxed first because that goes faster and is less painful. That way when you do the threading, they'll just clean you up a little and it won't be bad at all.

Ditto the girls above, I've done it twice and it's like tweezing but without the breaks inbetween its that constant feeling.

I tweeze my eyebrows myself normally and have done it so long and touch up a few times a week as needed so the hair barely grows back anymore but threading made my eyes water all over the place.

I didn't have the experience that they claim where it stays away longer than waxing/tweezing either.

Yes! It's the way to go, like the other ladies, I've done the tweezers for years. But the problem is I screw it up all the time, plucking too much/too little and the shaping is too hard. I've tried the wax, I don't like it.

I go have mine threaded once a month. As always, your first time will hurt just a bit.

I've never done the threading but get mine waxed all the time and its no biggie. Good luck and maybe wear waterproof mascara the day you have to get them done in front of people.

Um, yeah. I got my eyebrows threaded because my friend MADE me do it. Never Again. NEVER! Maybe I'm a baby but it hurt so bad! I agree with Ginni and Brie and the other girls, have them waxed and then they will just have a little touch up to do!

It's supposed to be either today or tomorrow. Hmm... I think I'll have to call in sick. I'm NOT doing that!

I hate tweezing so it looks like threading is out for me. I think that waxing is less painful than tweezing and always hate it when after they've waxed they pull out the tweezers.

I've never had mine threaded and I'm kinda glad! I was totally thinking it was pain-less!

I get mine waxed every 4 weeks.

Good luck!
