I tried threading and while I did like the results,I did not like the hold here and lift there that the person who did the threading wanted me to do.I like waxing better since they do all the work.

I work in a hair and beauty salon and we have just introduced threading. I don't do the service but my boss does and I love getting my eyebrows threaded! It has taken a few sittings but my eyebrows are now a beautiful shape! So precise and even it's a little painful but it doesn't hurt as much now. I recommend those who considered trying it to try at least once! You will notice the difference. I wax my legs and underarms.. still trying to work up the courage to wax my bikini, for now I just shave.

I wax my arms and my eyebrows (I've tried with tweezers but it was a mess and it hurt like hell) but I shave my legs (it's faster and i don't have to wait till hair is long enough). I envy men that can decide to not shave at all!

I used to wax my eyebrows but stopped because i get better results with threading the lady does a great shop thats why been going to her forever.. I shave my legs only and my underarm i do them with my epilator its good it takes as long as wax to grow back the epilator gets the hair from the root but its more like alot of tweezers plucking out the hair at the sametime its great i love it. So my answer is thread, shave and epilator :-)

Thread is really the only way to go when it comes to eyebrows. Waxing just doesn't make them look the same, and when it grows back it looks weird. Tweezing is ok for in between threadings but it's not professional when you do it at home. Threading is the best.
For body hair, I just shave. I use an Intuition Razor which already has the soap built in so it's very easy to use - no shaving cream required.

Threading for eyebrows, waxing for everything else. I agree with those who say threading is the way to go, because the results are just amazing. The shape is usually spot-on as well

Now that my man is away, I'm not avid about hair removal. When he is home, I shave and use clippers down there. I'll shave my legs and underarms and my man will use clippers to clean me up down there. I don't have to do anything with my eyebrows anymore cause the hair won't grow anymore. I want to get lasered, but it is so expensive. I can't get waxed cause I'm afraid of "emissions" at the time of extraction.

I used nair, down there, and burned myself and it was for sensitive skin and bikini. I didn't even leave it on the "extra" time you can. So I got burned and it didn't take the hair off I tweeze my eyebrows but id be interested in threading! I've home waxed and actually RIPPED the first layer of my whoha skin off and it was bleeding and everything, horrible! Soooo idk id like to wax a triangle or heart shape down there but I'm scared my skin will get ripped off. I can't wax bear I've had an ex say it looks like a little girl, not the "look" I was going for, yuck! I shave underarms, and legs.

I've lasered away most of the hair on my legs and armpits so I just shave what's left. I lasered away everything "down there" too but I didn't go long enough for it to stop growing, it's just much less dense lol I shave what's left as well. I'd like to go back to laser to be done with it but it's so painful I can't get myself to spend that much money for it again haha!
