Golden arches


I’m not talking about McDonald’s. What I am thinking about are perfectly shaped eyebrows. I have a fascination with brows, mainly because I suffer from eyebrow envy.  What I wouldn’t give for thick eyebrows that I could shape anyway I pleased.  Unfortunately, I came up extremely short instead, and so, I do my best to protect my puny brows against the threat of annihilation.  My removal method of choice is threading, hands down.  I’ve stayed away from tweezing to avoid the over plucked look.  The first time I had my eyebrows done was in college.  I’m not ashamed to admit it.  Like I said, I don’t have a lot to begin with, so I wasn’t walking around with a uni-brow or anything like that.  There was an Indian girl who threaded in a store across from my university.  Needless to say, she was the one who shaped my virgin brows. Even today, no one has come close to doing as good a job as her.  She was truly an artist at shaping the perfect brow so that it framed the face.  Since then, I’ve been in search of some one who can do a half-decent job on my eyebrows.  It’s easier said than done.  I did try waxing, briefly, several years ago, but soon switched back to threading. Heads up: It can be very painful the first time or if you have grown your brows back in order to get a new shape.  Three weeks ago, I was on my way to work, standing at the corner of 23rd & 6th when I saw a man wearing a board advertising threading and mehendi.  I took the card from him and went home to do some research on the place. was helpful and produced a great deal of positive reviews in terms of the quality of their threading.  A week later, I stopped in and had my eyebrows done by Suneta.  She took her time and did a pretty good job.  I left feeling pleased.  It was $6 well spent.

Update: I went back today them done again.  This time Saima threaded, and she did an almost perfect job.  I think I’m going to become a regular patron of hers.
