Hi there,,, yeap its true ,,waiting time is terrible..darn ..looking at the queue there ,,i am also thinking of opening my own parlour there lol...

yes,, back to the threading thing.....the last time I went there..which was about a week ago,, I waited for 35 mins,, and noticed that the tall thin gal there was doing the threading non stop.
There was a malay lady after me,,, but once my turn was over ,, the Malay lady was told to wait again cos the Threading woman needed to have her lunch.. tht woman does her threading well but there was one thing tht I wasnt happy about...

Since there are 2 girls doing threading in the shop, the Short one,,,was entertaining customers who had come to do facial threading..people were queing till out of the shop.
And since most were doing threading for eyebrows only,,,we had to wait for the tall ,thin lady doing the eyebrow threading.
The short girl , instead of clearing the queue , was only handling customers doing facial threading, and was free most of the time.

Late morning onwards, its quite crowded,,, unless you are willing to go when the shop opens at 9.30 am itself... still there will be some people..hmmmmmmmm :roll:

The thin lady is quite fast at threading. I suspect she is more skilled at shaping the eyebrows. But I used to find that she is always trying to save time & talks a lot which doing the threading that she doesn't make sure the eyebrows are symetrical. On a good day you will get nice symmetrical eyebrows, some other days you end up having a quizzled look for the next 3 weeks.

I've switched to the fatter lady who used to be there. She is slower at her threading (thus, could be slightly more painful for 1st timers) but she makes sure the brows are symmetrical.

Threading is great. Once you try it you will never go back to plucking or shaving the brows.

Thanks for all the reply. I went to Little india and there quite a few beauty salon had such services.

I have tried, not so bad but the charges is $18.00 for whole face with eyebrown. If you gals wanna to go there, please give a try to Rupini Beauty Consultant. There are at 24/26 Bufalo Road Tel: 62696789

Rupini had another shop at midpoint and they open on Sunday.

Please do not go on Sunday. Most of them are closed

Hi sorry. I am not trying to be a idiot. I would like to ask why do people go for facial threading? To remove the facial hair so that it look nicer and smoother isit? For eyebrow, is threading better or plucking?

Yes, your face look smoother and brighter, as for eyebrown i personally feel that threading is better because the shape last longer. Dont worry it not very painful but be prepare for some outbreak.

Tks Elizabeth for ur info!!! But if ur face already has outbreak, is it still ok to go for threading? Will it worsen the situation?

Threading is actually a Chinese technique in origin and more precise than tweezing which results in better shaped eyebrows. A lot also depends on the skill of the person. Today threading is done mainly by Indians in Singapore.

Yes, you may breakout but I would suggest, washing your face with an anti-bacterial face wash and applying some soothing lotion to the area when you get home.
