If you are ever caught without an eyebrow pencil..a graphite pencil will do just fine!-that is if you have dark/black hair...i'm pretty sure its not too unhealthy because when you draw you usually end up rubbing it into your skin anyways...it actually does a pretty nice job!

Ouch!


I think the best way is to get a referral from someone you trust and then discuss exactly what you want before anything is done. I have a great eyebrow guy, he's a genius and it's always fun to see him.

i have been really anal about brows ever since i learned how to pluck in high school. good brows are important! mine used to be very thin when i was younger but i am glad i have grown them out a little. thing that's annoying though is that they are naturally very arched. i wish they were a bit lower.

mine are naturally very arched too.
when i was growing up, i was embarrassed by the arch - thought i looked like Spocky
so a couple of times i shaved the top off!
oh dear.

i must tweeze every single morning before i go out the door. must.
right now, i've made a mistake in that i've overtweezed and my brows look too thin.
too thin and i look harsh, freaky and older (reminds me of 'Monica' in Friends, towards the end.... she just looked harsh in the end).
..... ...... so i'm trying to grow them out a bit.

btw: you can definitely have them professionally waxed or shaped by threading, in a salon. i've never had it done (yet) though.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Quick Question-

My eyebrows are uneven (never EVER pluck your eyebrows if you are not a pro! ) and I was wondering how I could make them perfect. One of my eyebrows is arched higher than the other, and the other eyebrow doesn't start at the right spot. It is a mess . I don't want to shave or color in my eyebrows-I hate the drawn on look and it doesn't look natural to me. But I don't want to grow them out and look like Eddy Munster! Besides, I can't stand my brows being hairy . I'm in a pickle-My messed up brows make my face very uneven. What should I do?????

I think it's ok to pluck your eyebrows even if you're not a pro...as long as you have a steady hand and aren't trying to do MAJOR resculpting. My eyebrows have a good, natural shape, and all I do is pluck some of the strays.


I would suggest perhaps going to a salon? Make sure you get plenty of recs first however, as I have seen people come out of salons with their brows butchered...it's worse than a bad haircut, because on a rare occasion, some people's brows don't grow back!

Does anyone else here thread? I'm Indian, so as someone mentioned before, we're all very into the whole eyebrow thing, and especially into threading. I've been doing it for 5 years now (well not me, but at a local salon) since I was 15/16 so I'm used to the pain now (which isn't THAT bad). I've tried waxing once and it grew back fine but I didn't like how the shape turned out compared to how the shape is when I thread it. Like the arch wasn't as angled as I would have liked it, and she made it thinner than usual and I HATE HATE HATE thin eyebrows, so I went back to threading after that experience. As for plucking? I HATE it because it kills, I can't do it right, and it grows back in two days making it pointless.

Threading is great and it makes your face look clean/beautiful for the first two/three weeks or so, but I admit that after a few weeks when it's just about time for you to get it done again, it looks SO gross. I've tried plucking in between that last week where your brows are hideous, but it just makes it worse for me since I can't pluck right. My stupid question is, is it possible to go get your brows threaded (or even waxed?) even though there's not much hair there? I've been thinking about going every 2 1/2 weeks versus every 4 weeks, but I've been told that you can't go that often because there won't be much hair to remove. Is that true?

Oh, but the place I go to charges only 4 bucks, so for 4 bucks every month, I guess it's worth having to suffer that final week.

Thanks-
miserylovescompany-Thanks for the advice! I'm just going to look like Eddie Munster for 4 weeks and then get them done at a salon. I just there was a eyebrow guru where I lived!

Sonia-This threading stuff sounds interesting! Is this something that a person can only get done at Indian salon or can they get done anywhere? Can you describe what threading consist of??? I watch a lot of those Indian movies and I love the arch of the eyebrows that Indian starlets have and I would love to have that look tooo!

I don't really have an arch, more of a curve and I don't really like it. Can you create an arch that looks natural and if so, how do you do it?

thanks!

Alfie- I've only been to Indian salons here in Toronto, but a lot of my friends also get it done at Middle Eastern salons as well. I'm sure you won't be able to get it done at those "american" places, but I know here for me, there's tons of small random shops in downtown that do it.

As for threading, it costs me like 4 bucks (and upperlips cost 2). Basically, you sit there, while they have a piece of thread that "cuts" your hair out. They usually put an end of the thread in their mouth, and move it along with their mouth/hands. It sounds weird, but it works. But I should warn you, threading isn't exactly the most painless experience. It KILLS for the first few times for sure. I've been threading since I was 15, so about 6 years now, and I'm used to it. I just went and did it yesterday, and if I have time later, I'll take a picture and post how well the arch turns out.

Gerard Street East ("Little India") has like 45038 salons that thread for you for cheap. Honestly, it doesn't matter where you get it done because they all end up doing the same job. I get mine done in Mississauga, so if you want to go there, I'll give you the place I go in Mississauga where it's 4 bucks threading for your eyebrows and 2 bucks for threading your upper lips.

And in case you're not sure, Gerrard Street is around Coxwell Ave, Greenwood Ave and Main Street. I think there's this place called 'Pooja Boutique" on those streets.

Ohh, also, I found these two in Etobicoke. I've never been there, but if it's close, go there. Or call ahead and ask for their prices.

Shahnoor's Delhi Herbal Beauty Parlour 959 Albion, Etobicoke (416) 747-8007

Bombay Beauty Salon Inc 34 Rexdale Bl, Etobicoke
(416) 747-7862
