I am a complete convert. I no longer wax. With all of the threading booths popping up in every mall I go to, there is no need to wax my brows anymore. And the arch I get from threading is never possible from waxing, it seems. Plus, it's cheaper! Which is surprising to me because it seems to me that the amount of work and precision needed in threading is more than waxing.
Do you thread your brows or upper lip? If you'd like to try threading or at least learn more about it, I've got some fantastic resources for you. First, watch a short video where you can see exactly what threading entails. Second, read my interview with the fantastic Shobha Tummala, the Founder and CEO of Shobha. Shobha is a group of hair removal salons that specialize in threading located in NYC. And last, head on over to the Hair Removal section of About.com where Naomi Torres will give you the low-down on all types of hair removal, including threading.
