Threading vs Waxing

I usually wax my eyebrows but today I thought it might be a good idea to try threading.
"It is popular in many Arabic countries, as well as Indian and Persian culture where it is called Bande Abru ("Abru" means eyebrow, and "Band" is the thread).

Practitioners use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and so on, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing where a single hair is pulled out each time, threading can remove an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line. However, due to a larger area of hair being removed at once, it can be quite painful for some." [Wikipedia]

Unlike waxing, I had to participate in the process. She'd tell me to hold down my eyelid and pull up my upper brow skin- difficult given the pain. If I may be honest, I found this ridiculously painful. I would not do it again and will instead stick to waxing!
