Yupz, U absolutely rite threading is cleaner n the new hair grows is longer than u pluck or tweezers. I find it shape is natural too. Everybody praised me each time I did my threading.It is a good feeling..... :girl:

Hi,
there are a few shops in Little India that I have visited with my friends. Did a great job at an affordable and reasonable price.

Don't mind trying. Below are the links:

I do mine at Clementi, she charges $5 for eyebrow also ,$10 for upper lips and $15 for whole face.

But sometimes ,if I am lazy , I will just pluck using a tweezer. Eyebrow threading certainly gives your face a different look.

It's true that the hair grows fast but good thing is that frequent threading will makes it thinner and eventully (quite some time), it will be shorter and thinner and GONE!

Gone, i think so but thinner is confirmed.

Hahaha... Ya, my name Charmaine. Didn't realize my mistake as i was going everything to fast. Haha... but anyway, i've changed it.

Thinner ya. But of course must me long term. Believe me, you'll see results. THe best place to go is Little India (Buffalo Road). THreading is much much MUCH cheaper than waxing and somemore it's expensive. WHereas, threading is abt 5 bucks? I find it abit expensive already bcus it's just using thread, like the sewing thread but no la. They use some kind of thread from India.

Hahaha... The Charmaines... Anyway anyway, about the hair removal thingie. Today i went to Plaza Singapura and bought an eplilator (a shaver-like thing) costing 40 bucks (the cheapest). The good thing is that you move the thing like a shaver but it actually pluck ur hair - so there wun be any thickness when the next batch grows. It will just grow thinner - like threading.

Go to Carrefour and check these little electronics out. It will DEFINITELY saves me alot of money. Threading of eyebrow, upperlip and lower lip (1 time $12 so 10 times is $120) Bought this shaver-like thingie $40 bucks and can do more than 100 times also 40 bucks..

Anyway, if still wanna go threading, go to Little India. The LRT reach Little INdia, exit thru the escalator to Buffaloe Road and then exit until you out of MRT den turn left (like market lidat) - don't cross road. Walk until you see shophouse name "Susiee" or "Creative ....." which is less than 2 metres away. Threading is about $5 - $7 bucks (Upper and lower lip-Chin).
