Perth Eyebrow Threading Review: Minu Threading, Subiaco Markets & Innaloo!

♥ Minu Threading ♥

I have wanted to write an article about threading for a really long time. The first time it entered my mind was when I had first discovered threading. Amazed at the way my non-existent eyebrows looked after just one appointment, I thought to myself- I must spread the word– much like an old time explorer discovering new land (or so I like to think). A year on, and I’m still met with blank looks when I mention my luscious brows are threaded, and thus the desire to write the article has returned!

Threading is a hair removal technique originating from India and Central Asia.

Unlike plucking, which removes one hair at a time, threading removes an entire line of hair with the use of cotton, which leaves a cleaner, more precise shape. Eyebrow threading is also a lifesaver for those women who are allergic to wax or are taking medication for their skin. That’s as technical as I can get about threading; I think the best way to understand what it is, is to see it in action. And because I know you all love a good before and after, I’ve taken one for the team, and bared my naked brow for you all to see. Enjoy!

6. I like to get a very dark and thick tint put on my brow, it helps define the shape!

7. Ahhhh back to my nice thick brows.

I have been visiting my threader, Minu, for nearly a year now. Minu has a salon at the Station Street Subiaco Markets on Friday Saturday and Sunday and then during the week she is based in the Innaloo shopping centre. Minu and her team are fast, gentle and listen to your eyebrow (and other beauty) needs. Eyebrow threading isn’t painless, and getting your top lip done hurts like the dickens, but the regrowth is finer, the damge to your skin is negligible, and it’s a heck of a lot cheaper then visiting the salon for a wax. If you still arent convinced don’t hesitate to pop down to the subiaco markets and see Minu and her team in action!

Tell us…Have you had your eyebrows threaded before? Have you had the pleasure of meeting Minu before? Leave a comment below with your experiences!

Minu’s salon can be found at Shop 11, 52 station street, Subiaco, Perth.
She also has a Facebook page!

    I did NOT know there was a threading place in Subi – now I can go on Fridays in my lunchbreak! Like TODAY!! Thanks Jacqui, this has made my Friday 🙂

  2. miss marian says:

    holy wow, your eyebrows look superb!

    is the lusciousness of that aftershot really a result of the tint/threading only, or is there some sort of eyebrow pencil happening too? if so, i’d love to know what pencil you recommend (we have similar colouring)…

  3. Jacqui says:

    Zoe : my pleasure!

    Miss Marian: this picture is without eyebrow pencil believe it or not!! However after a few days, pencil or powder is required. I like the Kevyn auction pencil as it is one shade and has a built in brush or try using a matte brown shadow (without a red undertone) and an eyebrow brush! Threading does give a fabulously defined shape though so perhaps try that as well! xx

    Woah Jacqui they look INCRED! I have been a big convert of the Kevyn Aucoin pencil since Annette and I took a trip to Mecca last year (I think she wanted to visit you actually) and it was recommended to me by one of your lovely colleagues. I love a strong brow so I am definitely going to try pay a visit to Minu! Thank you so much for sharing.
