“If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your eyebrows are the curtains!” I don’t know who said that. I may have made it up. But I will tell you that I believe it! As a model and makeup artist, I have seen eyebrows make or break a look more times than I could count! It’s no wonder why when I moved to Los Angeles, one of my concerns was finding a good place where I could get my brows threaded in LA!
The first person to ever groom my brows (which don’t need MUCH, but it is still important) moved to Denver. For MONTHS after, I tried person after person, only to be disappointed. I take my brows SERIOUSLY! In fact, let me give you a direct quote from my husband – “Are you sure you didn’t know I was going to propose? Your eyebrows look too perfect.”
The sun is hiding my evidence, but I had an inkling it was going to happen, and that’s why I made sure that I had a natural look, but still took the time to make sure that my brows looked great!
I was afraid that I was going to have to “kiss a lot of frogs” before I found my prince, regarding somewhere to get my brows threaded in LA, but I was so blessed to be invited as a makeup artist and beauty blogger to attend an event at Get Threaded in Beverly Hills, and find an amazing brow expert, only about a week and a half after moving here!
Get Threaded is a boutique that specializes in – you guessed – threading! I love that they have experts there to focus on what they are great at. They offer of course eyebrow threading, but also lip and chin threading, neck, forehead, sides of face, and full face threading for men and women!
If you’re wondering why anyone would get a full face threading, let me help you out – something I learned from the threading magician I saw when I lived in Milwaukee! EVERYONE has a hairy face! I don’t have a dark mustache or chin hairs, but rather those tiny, thin white hairs. When my full face gets threaded, my makeup goes on smoothly, and I can use less of my favorite skincare – saving money! Plus, my skincare doesn’t have to fight through my little hairs to get to my face, which makes it more effective!
They also offer lash curl, lash lifts, head massages, facial treatments, airbrush makeup (but I’d obviously not use that, since I’d do that myself), and some pretty amazing WOW packages!
I was very impressed not only with the results that I got (a nice, natural look that I can maintain and replicate at home), but also the education that I got along with it! My brow specialist took the time to discuss with me how my brows are naturally shaped, and where we need to subtract hair and add makeup to flatter my face shape, in a similar way to my brow lessons in my online makeup academy! She also gave me advice when I asked, because I had been considering microblading – she confirmed that I don’t need it (yay! I get to save myself money and pain!)!
To top it all off, they gave me a “Brow Buddy” kit that has everything I need to replicate the look my specialist created! And good news for you is that you can buy it on their website!
I am so glad that Get Threaded opened its third boutique (the first twenty are in Australia) and am even more glad that it’s in Beverly Hills, which made it so easy for me to find somewhere to get my brows in threaded LA!
My only regret is that I didn’t take more pictures at the event itself – I was overwhelmed by how amazing everything was! There was champagne, hors d’oeuvres, adorable mini desserts, tons of gorgeous and amazing beauty bloggers, influencers, and Get Threaded staff, plus items for the Vanderpump Dogs charity!
I can’t wait for the next event, and definitely know where I’m going the next time I need to get my brows in threaded LA! This time, I’ll be there for the cleanup and full face threading, and may treat myself to a treatment, too!
