eyebrows

Hi ladies, I have a question about eyebrows and I thought I'd ask you all.

1) Which eyebrow treatment do you like best - plucking, waxing, or threading?
2) How often do you pluck/wax/thread your eyebrows?
3) How soon before the wedding should you get your eyebrows done? One week? A few days before?

Thanks in advance!

1. Waxing, when I can get to it.
2. Wax every month or so. Pluck in between if I've been lazy (I wax my own eyebrows).
3. A week, then pluck until the wedding. You don't want red eyebrows the day of. Also, if you've NEVER waxed before, then get it done a month or so before too (otherwise you may have tan lines!)

I always wax. I have heard threading is very efficient but I personally have never had it done.

Threading!

Threading is better for your skin than waxing because threading doesn't involve tugging of your skin. Only the hairs are touched.

I do mine only about once every four months though because I can't ever decide whether I like fuller more natural looking brows or more shaped ones - and because the place I go to is not a convenient drive to get to.

I always decide to forgo the fuller more natural brows and go get threaded when I miss the super clean and polished feeling around my brows.

1) Waxing but I've been getting threading since it's included with my facials
2) Monthly threading with my monthly facials
3) I would say one week and tweeze any stray hairs.

Thanks for the suggestions! I made an appointment to try out this one lady in SF. I hope it turns out ok! If so, then I'll make an appointment a week before the wedding when the time comes.

1) I like waxing and threading.
2) I try to tweeze the stray little ones that grow every three days. I do not go out routinely to get my brows done (I would if I found a place here in New Orleans and if I had more time. =) ) But I'd advise every couple months at least.
3) I had my brows done 4 days before the wedding. If you turn red, then maybe you should get them done a week earlier.

I highly recommend BlinkSF for brows!! They do an awesome job. Your brows will look PERFECT! They do a combo of threading and tweezing.
