hmmm sorry to hear that maybe you needed like a soothing oil or rub ?
I'm not sure what to recommend to help, hopefully another tFSer can help
thanks for sympathizing hehe. Theyre kinda fading away now but u know how annoying spots can be. I guess I did need some aloe vera or something. I have oily skin too which is probably why

Not cheap in London!! I paid 17£ (maybe because the place was inside selfridges ?!)
But now I'm hooked! the result is amazing! Unfortunately I can't seem to find any threading salon in Milan

I would love to try threading but I don't know any places where they do it. I have a pretty high pain threshold, so that wouldn't be a problem. And I would love to get all the facial hair away, hehe. Especially "my mustache". Oh though not the eyebrows. How long does it last?

Yeah! Blink bar is £17 and Glow is £14...so pricewise waxing is cheaper at £9-11. I also prefer the experience of waxing, for some reason all threading places here are in the middle of department stores. I have sensitive skin so I'm always very red and I like a few minutes to relax and fix my makeup after I'm done instead of being gawped at by strangers I do however like the precision of threading, and my threader paid a lot of attention to shape. Since I have very stubborn hair follicles, it was quite painful and comparative to waxing, so waxing is better for me because it's much quicker. I'd use threading to get a great shape but waxing for upkeep

Threading should be alot cheaper lol. I think for some of you who only need minor areas threaded like upper lips or chin hairs removed, you should just try and learn to do it by yourself.

I got my eyebrows threaded today and am really pleased with the result. I was expecting it to sting, but was far less painful than plucking or waxing. It looked a bit red after, but she put some aloe vera gel on and the redness went in a very short while. I am definitely going to stick with threading, and the place I went gives you every 5th session free. It normally costs £10.00. (cheaper than waxing)

i bet there are a thousand places in NY! try Yelp for locations and detailed reviews

i've done my own threading for at least a couple years and i still suck at it. there are tutorials online if you think you'll do better than me
except the look of threaded brows is so distinctive and unnatural (though beautiful) that i expect it to become somewhat passe in years to come, much like long eighties nails, or the t-shirt/blazer combo.

I thread my upper lip myself, haha. I have a pretty high pain threshold, but some areas (like right under my nose) make my eyes water a little. I'm in love with the results, though!

I get my upper lip and eyebrows threaded because I'm super allergic to the wax used. My question is though, I have little spots on my upper lip now so how do I get rid of them? Is there anything I should do after my upper lip is threaded? I usually put Vaseline with Aloe Vera on it but it's still not helped with my upper lip breaking out.
