When we know that our eyebrows are on fleek, there is no denying that we feel like absolute queens. 

So of course all the pain and suffering is totally worth it now that our brow game is on point. 

But actually getting your stray eyebrow hairs ripped from your pores by two pieces of thread is actually not cute, nor fun. 

And yet most us just keep going back for more. Here is how the traumatic event tends to go. 

1) I know the threading lady told me to go six weeks without plucking but if I go one more day I am going to have a serious Chewbacca situation going on.

2) This is going to hurt like a bitch. 

3) Look at those BROWS. She must know what she is doing.

4) Yes shoppers, do come and watch my suffering, I absolutely love it.

5) Okay I am gonna need a tissue. I am going to need a lot MORE TISSUES.

6) WHY did I put mascara on. 

7) It's over, oh thank god it's over. NO IT'S NOT OVER. 

8) Why is she asking me to get my upper lip done? Do I NEED my lip done? Better get my lip done. 

9) My face looks like a plucked hen that's been sunburnt

10) So SMOOTH though. 

11) Awh damn, those brows be on point though. TOTALLY worth it. 



Perfectly plucked eyebrows are the best way to achieve that flawless look. Unfortunately it is a particularly painful part of your beauty regime.

Don’t just grin and bear the pain, try these four tips to achieve the perfect arches pain-free:

Choose the right tweezers
Make sure it is a sharp slanted style as they grab strays and won’t pinch you. Impressive!

Pluck after you shower
Warm water will soften the hairs and help them come out easier.

Avoid the magnifying mirror
This can lead to over plucking as it make you see hairs that aren’t really there. Every couple of minutes take a step back and have a look at the effect before plucking more.

Try a little gel
If you really suffer when it comes to plucking, try applying a layer of Bonjela or petroleum jelly to the area. This can help the hairs come out a little easier.

If you still can’t stand the pain, you might want to book a trip to the beautician for some threading… just saying.
