I have been an eyebrow waxing enthusiast for nearly 10 years! Once I got started during  my sophomore year in college, I was hooked. It wasn’t until recently that I got the low down dirty insight about how unsanitary eyebrow waxing salons can truly be. My sister in law is a hairstylist. She recently took a continuing education class on esthetician practices and the info she shared with me was shocking. I vowed to never get my eyebrows waxed again. My friends have been trying to convince me for nearly a year to try eyebrow threading but I had heard a lot of mixed reviews. Some said it was painful and a few said it was painless. I had been trying to maintain my own eyebrows but to no avail. So before I started looking like the Wolverine, I decided to break down and try threading.

Of course you all know that I love a good deal. I found a Groupon deal for a threading session at Wink for $6 and decided to give it a shot. When I entered Wink I was pleasantly surprised. The decor was beautiful. I loved the fresh and modern touches throughout the salon.

The receptionist Danielle was very friendly! I always love going to places that provide exceptional customer service. She was truly a pleasure to talk to.

I ended up getting my eyebrows threaded by Prateeksha. I was a bit nervous but excited. To my surprise, the process wasn’t as painful as I anticipated.  Prateeksha was very patient and thorough. She taught me where to hold my hands to ensure she got all the hair. It was not painless by any stretch but I would say it is comparable to the pain associated with waxing. The entire process took less than 5 minutes and I loved the results.

When I left the salon I felt amazing. That’s the feeling all women and men should experience after receiving any beauty service. If you live in or will be visiting the Austin area, skip the mall kiosk and head on over to Wink to get your brows done right! Currently they are offering a Groupon for either 1 $6 threading session or 3 $15 threading sessions. Do yourself a favor and choose the $15 package. I can guarantee that you will love the Wink treatment. Fast, efficient and way more hygienic than waxing!
