Too Many Trips to the Mall

We are just a week away from the wedding. Thank goodness I am only working on one wedding event as I couldn't have managed much more. I finished the menu cards and place cards and after doing some price comparisons we ended up ordering the bride and groom strawberries from Costco instead of trying to make them. We polished up some trays and gathered champagne glasses for the reception so I think we are ready. In fact this afternoon I stacked my clothes for the weekend so I'm nearly packed as well.

On Saturday we had to make one last trip to the mall to find something for my husband to wear to the rehearsal dinner and while walking through the mall I noticed the most intriguing thing. Have any of you had your brows done using the threading technique? My camera was in my purse and I wanted to pull it out to take pictures but frankly, taking pictures of someone getting their brows done just seemed too personal. I just didn't have it in me to ask if I could photograph the process but how amazing. (the photo posted is from eHow). A friend of the woman being threaded had just gotten her brows done and they were perfect. I watched for quite some time but I still can't figure out how to do the threading. Can you?


  1. I have never seen this. I need to get out more often!

  2. Oh...yes. Threading! I ONLY get my eyebrows done this way. It is HUGE in NYC. I first heard about this technique from my Iranian friends. They call it "band." (As in "wire band," I suppose.) It became really popular here about five years ago and keeps picking up speed! It really is the best way to shape your brows. I get mine done in the mall, too- here on Staten Island. In the city they have little shops everywhere.
    Congrats and enjoy the wedding. Can't wait to see pictures. Blessings to the family, too.

  3. I have never seen this done before. WOW! Interesting. Hang in there. I know weddings can be very stressful.

  4. Tomorrow is the big day. Congratulations all around!
    . . .and we expect a full report, of course.
