Try eyebrow threading at home...I did

Back in August I wrote EyeSpy Eyebrows, about my first time getting my eyebrows professionally threaded. Well, since then I've been interested in trying to learn the technique. I came across a fabulous eyebrow threading tutorial on youtube a few weeks ago by the member Eily311. This tutorial is one of the best I've seen so far on the net and with practice you too can thread your own eyebrows. So, this technique took me about three attempts and trying different thickness' of thread. For me, the easiest method is to make the loop very small & use thin cotton thread (from your sewing kit). Also, practice makes perfect! Don't expect the same results as you would at a salon (atleast until you can master it), for me I still find it difficult to do the underside of my eyebrows. The top and sides of eyebrows were easier, as I find that because I can't hold my skin taut above my eyebrow arch I can't reach/grab the smaller hairs. I'm unsure if I'll continue to use this technique at home or if I'll just get it done by a pro. I usually just pluck but find that threading gives you a cleaner look and nicer shape. Let me know what you think of this tutorial? And if you actually try it?
Goodluck & patience:)



  1. I've watched this video, it looks easy, but I really don't have the guts coz my eyebrows are thick and just one hair that is mis-plucked would really be very very obvious! I'm glad you did! :)

  2. wow. great tutorial! I'm still afraid to do it myself and I plan to leave it in the skilled hands of Nazi at the EA salon! :-)

  3. IMPRESSIVE! I don't think I've ever known anyone who did this... : )

  4. I tried doing this on my own. I'm still working on it. I have a hard time threading hairs closer to the arch.

  5. I find it harder underneath the arch too but for the area above I find its easy. It would help if I had a 3rd hand LOL!

  6. This is a good tutorial. Another good one is by purse buzz. I tried it and had a little difficulty, but it was my first time doing it, so that's okay.. :D

  7. This is super - thank you so much for posting:)

  8. I watched this video then tried it myself. I had a little difficulty with getting the appropriate string length but once I got that right it was a breeze. Once I was done I was shocked, it looked better than any waxing or plucking I'd done (or had done) before. Wish I would have tried it sooner!!! No more waiting at the salon to get waxed. Thanks for the post.

  9. I`ve done it,As all people say that threading is the best,Don`t ever wax your eyebrows,they`ll be a total wreck...x :)
