Default Threading - anyone had it done??

Hi all

Threading - anyone else out there had it done?

Thought I would share my experiance with you!!!

I had this done on my most recent trip to Luxor at the end of November last year by the young lady in the hotel hairdressers/beauty room.

At 1st I thought I was just having my eyebrows done. Ohh noooo. 1st she started on my ears and took off all my precious little baby hairs that have been with me for 42 years ( nothing to twiddle now when I have no ear rings in ) Next were the sides of my face, then my top lip then my nostrils oocchh oocchhh oocchhh. Not that I have a beard or moustache!!

She spent an hour on me all together and my friend was sitting in the chair behind me nearly wetting herself.

It only cost 60le. At home I pay 6 to get just my brows waxed.

Would I have it done again - hell yes what a difference - smooth as a babys bum. The eyebrows were the best I have ever had done.

I have been looking on the net for places near my home to do it and full face is around 60!!!!

Go for it girls. Yet to try sugar stuff though forget what its called but maybe the ladies in Cairo can remind me.

Cant wait to go back to Egypt and have another session.

I wonder how much it would cost to get my back done - probably still GBP1000 even at those prices!

Bears and gorillas look on jealously when they see the thickness of my pelt. If I accidentally left my contact lenses out and mistook a nudist colony for a safari park, then they would never let me out again.

I think I'll just have to stick with lying spreadeagled on the floor and getting my girlfriend to give me a good going over with the Flymo every couple of weeks!

Te he he he. Made me laugh. Ahh she aint as good as me then as I do get the tweezers out every fortnight and give him indoors a good pluck. I keep threatening to leave it tho and wax it or try the Egyptian sugar treatment. See if he screams - if he does then I will leave well alone!! JAYNE knows what I mean!

Tweezers? With me it would be like painting the Forth Bridge trying to do it each fortnight.

By the time she's got to the bottom, she'd have to start at the top again!

Oh yes, I don't do pain at all - certainly not for something as trivial as having a smooth back without the shaving!

I have my eyebrows threaded in our local Beautician/hairdresser. I read in a mag 2yrs ago I think that waxing your eyebrows is dodgy. The skin is soft and tender and prone to ripping eeeeeeksssssssss so I get lovely shaped eyebrows and with less pain too. For you hairy backed men you should look into getting it removed permanently by laser. Doesn't hurt (shame really lolol) and although it is a bit expensive it IS permanent.

Hi Alison,

I have just had my eyebrows done and yes, OUCH!!! Have to agree though, it's the best my eyebrows have ever looked. Not to get too personal, how does the hair grow back in? Is it like waxing or shaving? I would hate to get my face done and end up all bristles!!

I have had my legs sugared and it is just like waxing really.


Margaret
