I have really thick eyebrows you know the uni-brow thing going on. I have been getting them waxed. Here lately I've noticed a lady at the mall that uses the threading technique. What's the difference? I hear threading really hurts. It sure does look beautiful. Although when I first got a wax I criied.

I have only tried waxing and it does indeed hurt. I've never tried threading, but it's very popular where I live and many people claim it hurts less than waxing and is more accurate in removing unwanted hair.

Hmmmm, interesting. Thank you You were saying that you cried at your first wax...I know your pain. Gosh! I was threatened with being kicked out of the shop if I ever screamed like that again. Embarrassing and painful.

i heart threading :D. i tend to agree with most of the people who says threading does not make the hair grow darker like shaving does. i started threading about 2 years back, and am quite satisfied with the result. although it doesn't remove totally the hair like laser does, but it sure is neat. it hurts a little, u'll shed some tear, but u'll be satisfied. threading started from the india people here in malaysia. they use a strand of thread and roll it in whichever way i don't know, and roll it to the place u want to get rid of the excessive hair. i do upper lips threading, and am satisfied with the results. go try some. u'll love it!
