Forgot to ask on the haircolor post if there is anywhere on the island to get your eyebrows threaded....

STT has a pretty good Indian population. Am sure you will be able to find a place for threading. Best bet would be to look for a salon that caters to the Indian population or ask one of the ladies in an Indian run/owned store. They could point you in the right direction.

Well I'm gobsmacked that someone replied but now I sort of stand educated but not sure how? Threaded eyebrows? Is this something like beaded cornrows where even the most sparse hair on the head gets plaited and braided with interspersed beads? Beaded/threaded eyebrows? I am so lost here but would absolutely welcome some input.

And what's the point? For sure we have an East Indian community here but in all honesty I've never noticed anyone sporting anything like threaded eyebrows.

As an old broad I look forward lo learning. Cheers!

I just asked my wife the same question 😎 and she never heard of it. I guess we're all in line to learn something new today.

It's like waxing but they use thread to remove the unwanted hair. A LOT less painful!!!

It's hard to find anybody to do it around here. Actually, I know of no salon that does it. Suppse to be much better then waxing and lasts longer.

You get better shaping of the eyebrow via threading than you do via waxing.
