Hey boffenl, so have you tried the places you mentioned? I am itching to get mine done. So where exactly are there? :D

Anyway I already went and tried eyebrow threading at The Verge in Little India (3rd floor if I am not mistaken). Only SGD6.00! But it was not the most fantastic job but it did help in keeping the stray ones away and maintaining the best of your shape.

Don't expect the lady to know the best of your brow shape and sculpt it. She only knows how to follow the original brow shape.

Hi I am a threader in the US now, do any of you know how I can continue threading in Singapore and if I need a license to open my own shop or to work for a shop there? Thanks.

There's a threading service at Central, basement. Not too bad, if you leave near Clarke Quay

Eyebrow threading is usually between $5-$7 ,depending on place. Well i think if you compare prices, definitely India is cheaper.

Threading

Postby ElanorHelen » Sun, 11 Nov 2012 8:45 pm

Dear all,

I'd like to post about a painful threading experience I had today, I'm afraid I'm venting, but if it prevents others from going through the same experience, then it's worth it.

I went to Rimpy's Beauty, which is a small neighbourhood threading place run by Indian ladies at Clementi town centre.

This was my second time there. The first time was fine, perhaps it was less busy as I went on a weekday then. Today is Sunday, and it was more crowded.

I was attended by one lady, whose thread kept breaking. Less than halfway through, I got passed on to another young lady. She was quite rough, and got my sideburns tangled in the string.

She was threading the area around my right cheekbone, when she ripped out a clump of my eyelashes. I was clutching my eye in pain for a minute or two. I dabbed at it with tissue, and there were small spots of blood, I assume where my lashes had been yanked out.

It was so painful that I was almost in tears. There is now a bald patch above my right eye - thankfully, it's not very noticable as I have quite full lashes. But it's still smarting slightly as I type now.

The lady who did it did NOT apologise - one would expect immediate and profuse apology after causing pain to their customer; but in the end, only one of the other staff looked apologetic (after I had been in pain for about ten minutes) and offered apologies.

She offered to do the other half of my face, which hadn't been done. I declined and, feeling quite angry, left. Everyone in the store was staring at me, and I didn't want to cause any more of a scene.

I've learnt my lesson not to do threading at neighbourhood shops. I'll be sticking to my usual package at a more reputable place.

Elanor

Hi Elanor, i am always going there at Rimpy's to do threading.I was there on Nov 11 too in the morning, It was very busy with many indian ladies I think maybe due to Deepavali.

Anyway, everytime I go there are many different threading girls, and I am not sure how Rimpy can keep these ladies as they are not on proper passes. one of the girls told me that they are on WP, but paid only about $500

Nevertheless I am always looking for a very fair, chubby looking lady, I dont know whats her name, but its best to go the same threading lady.

While waiting, in came a American lady who was wanting to have Henna done on her hand. As it was her 1st time,and she was asking questions, one of the Indian threading lady told another threading therapist, to bring her out of the shop and quickly do her henna so that she can leave as she was asking too many questions. :o :o I was shocked as the customer service is not there.
