I had my first threading experience last week courtesy of Bombay Brow Bar. I’ve heard of threading before, but all the good places were in Little India which is way too far for me to trek to. I’m very protective of my brows. Waxing is a big no-no. I’m a tweezer. And now, I’m also a threader.

Furnished in a very contemporary interpretation of an Indian interior, Bombay is a very tiny space but also very warm and welcoming. You are offered chai and seated comfortably on one of the burgundy chairs and introduced to your esthetician. I opted for the “bombshell brow” service ($23). First you go through a short consultation using the “3-point technique” to achieve the brow shape best suited for your face. Once that’s done, threading begins! It’s the fastest, most precise technique to achieve the cleanest, sharpest line. The initial feeling of threading is a bit odd: it almost feels as if someone is scraping your skin. But does it hurt? I don’t think so. Pretty painless, actually.

Once you’re done, you can also opt for the complimentary brow makeup to add even more drama to the brow — a little goes a long way. When I walked out of Bombay, my brows looked gorgeous! Very bombshell indeed.

For those with mischievous hairs will be glad to know that threading can be extended to other parts of the face with their “bombay a-la-carte fuzzies” ($10) or “bombay bare” ($49) services. But girls don’t have those problems, right? Shhh, we’ll keep it a secret.
