Eyebrow trimming is pretty common among the ladies, some people might shave it, or pluck the brows. But, have you tried eyebrow threading? Yes, thread, with a thread.
I have heard from my friend that there is a particular shop in bangsar, which does a good job and only cost RM5 to get the brows done! Of course, I just had to check it out. Not knowing the shop name, or location, I really had a hard time finding it. All I was given was ‘right next to Nirvana banana leaf’. Well, I am not a frequent of Bangsar because it is always packed there. After touring for about 20 mins in Bangsar, just when I was about to give up, I saw this shop!
I was quite skeptical about it since there was no signboard about beauty stuff, they are professionals in dress making in fact. I have captured some shots for you ladies in case any of you might want to try it out.
The shop was right next to Ambank actually, with this landmark, it is much easier to find.
There was nothing gorgeous or fancy about the shop, just simle and clean.
Continuing from Part I, walking in, I requested for eye brow trimming, and I DID NOT KNOW THAT IT WAS THREADING!!!
When the lady took a thread out and told me to lie down, it really scared the hell out of me! O_o. Not easy you know. Using thread to cut your brows, imagine the potential pain when the thread brushed your skin.
Indeed, the idea of it scared the shit out of me, but, there was no way I could run, so I only lied down in fear. The lady first apply some talcum on my brow, then, she held the thread with her teeth and started the process. You see, I had my eyes closed, so, I didn’t really see how it was done. I spent the minutes sweating away. It was not hot there. But I was so nervous and scared, I kept perspiring.
Well, I am quite pain intolerant, so, I would say that it was quite painful. Brow area is supposed to be the least painful area of the whole face. There are other services such as bikini wax, underarm threading and etc. I have the shot for their services. Welcome to check out. Oh yeah, I was supposed to hold the brows and lids apart, but, I was so scared that I had to hold on to my fists, so, the other lady held my brows for me. They did a pretty goob job I must admit, my brows looked neat and tidy after the job.
But, I must tell you that, this is NOT RESHAPING. This is just clearing off the bushes off your brows. So, if you are looking for eyebrow shaping, I am afraid that this is not the place. The whole process was only
RM5 (RM8 as of March 2011) I would say it worths a try.
And, I will consider going back there again next time!
