hi there do you girls pluck or shave your eyebrows to arch it? before i use to pluck it but it is so painful so i just decided to shave it..my mom said that i should go to the parlor and have a professional arch my eyebrows but i will be paying them so i just do it my own since i am capable of doing it..

I usually go to the parlor to have my eyebrows done. I don't know how to do it myself so I just let my hairdresser who is an expert to do it for me and I think she is shaving them. Yes, I really have to pay for the service but it's worth it so no problem for me.

Thin eyebrows??? That is not really nice, they have to do them like the eyebrows of Gretchen Barreto or Ruffa Gutierrez or Kris Aquino or whoever else you pick.

thanks for the suggestion but i have a scar on my eyebrow that is why i have arched it because my eyebrows are not evenly distributed when i had that scar..

at first i thought your asking about plucking or shaving our underarms lol but anywayz, since it's not the 'kili-kili' & it's the eyebrows, well i will say that i'm plucking & shaving at the same time, i will pluck near my eyelids & i will shave the upper part or sometimes, i will let my aunt to the arch my eyebrows coz she's good into it, besides its free hahaha..

Whenever I go to get my haircut I always have my stylist wax my eyebrows. I've gotten to the point that I have had it done so much that it actually feels kind of good. Morbid huh? Then in between visits I pluck the new hairs as well as I can to keep my eyebrows maintained. I don't think I would ever shave my eyebrows, I would be too scared my hand would slip and I'd shave one eyebrow off right through the middle!

i pluck my eyebrows. ive never had the extra cash to waste that going to the a parlor would cost loL! i wish but no such luck. ive thought a number of times of shaving my eyebrows, but im just afraid that i would end makeing them horribly uneven and then unfixable. i wont ever shave them off completely and draw them in! i know for sure i would end up looking like a clown!

shaving the eyebrows off will do no good. yu should be doing them every week then.plucking/threading is the best way to shape your eyebrows!! and more over you don have to do them every week... as far as threading is concerned..!!

I haven't done so myself. I have tried only once in my life to have my eyebrows shaved: on my wedding day. And I don't have plans to do it again ;O) It's difficult to maintain the shape and the hair grows really fast.

I dun pluck my eye brows, but i have seen gals doing it.. I guess most gals will prefer to pluck it than shaving it?? Because i often seen gals plucking their eye borws in public, especially in cafe when they are waiting for frenz.. lol

LOL.....i had it once LOL!One of my failure...i don't know how to do it.Had it one,unfortunately i was not able to maintain it..by plucking growing ones.Back here they use thread...boy it was really painful.So the next time i'll have it done better make sure to maintain it myself.I'd rather have my brows plucked.
