Sparkly eyebrows look incredible on runaway and in magazines,
but in real life, a neatly groomed, flattering shape is all you need to frame your face.
Threading is a great beauty consideration if you're tired of tweezing.

Threading is less painful than waxing.
But, before you decide that threading is for you, check out these Do's and Don'ts from Sonal Maniatas, co-founder of Seva Beauty, a facial hair removal salon located in Wal-Mart stores (yes, Wal-Mart) across the country.
1. Make sure you go to a trained brow pro. "Ask where they were trained, how long they have been practicing and what licenses they have".
2. Know that a little post-threading redness is normal. "It's a natural reaction, and it should subside on its own within a few hours. In necessary, apply a cool compress to the area".
3. Stay on top of your touch-ups. Recommended time is every two weeks to keep their shape looking sharp and clean.
1. Stay silent in the chair. Describe the shape you would like - low, medium, high or sharp arch; thick, medium or thin brows. You can bring photographs, but a good shaper should be able to determine that most complimentary look for your facial structure. Remember: You may not have enough to work with to match a celebrity.
2. Put anything on your browns after hair removal. Wait at least two hours before applying moisturizers, cleansers or makeup directly to the threaded area to keep bacteria away from open pores.
3. Use a brow razor in between appointments. Doing so may lead to ingrown hairs and stubble and you can run the risk of taking off too much hair.
