Re: Threading of eyebrows

There is an indian lady who does it at the Vanity Baur au Lac place. I can't remember how much she charges exactly but from memory it's something like Sfr40 for eye-brows. Best to call and speak to her. I'm not sure if you'll get the info from the other girls.

I do know of a gujerati lady that does it for Sfr15. She also does indian facials (home-made ingredients). But she's very no-frills. If you're interested in her details, send me a private note as I won't put up her personal details here.

Re: Threading of eyebrows [Zurich]

My girlfriend can highly recommend the Schminkbar.
There is one in the Bahnhofstrasse (#94) and behind the Feldpausch in the Beatengasse. Reasonable price and inviting interior.
Would cost you CHF 40,= .

Re: Threading of eyebrows [Zurich]

Is this for threading or for waxing/plucking (as stated in their pricelist?)

Re: Threading of eyebrows [Zurich]

I came across a salon here in Zurich that offers Threading - a lovely turkish lady offers it.

The salon is:

Oasis Beauty and Wellness
Loewenstrasse 53
8001 Zurich
Ph: 044 242 3890

If you can't speak German, then go in person. But the location is really central (just behind globus) and the atmosphere is great. The ladies were really friendly. I was just there for a facial yesterday and really loved it.

Re: Threading of eyebrows

Nanda

can you send the details of the gujerati ladz. Just to put the 40chfs into context, when I last got my eyebrows threaded in London is was £25, before that I used to go to Vaishaly Patel (v good but a nightmare to get into her book / she is v popular and famous for this and her facials in London) who now charges £70 for initial consultation and £45 for shaping after that, while I think her assistants are abour £30.

Re: Threading of eyebrows [Zurich]

wow valers that sounds ridiculously expensive!! ouch!! an indian lady at bar au lac on börsenstrasse, zürich does it... nice and sweet person but could have been more gentle.. mega ouch factor. Think it was 30 or 40 francs... went once... not been back. I learnt how to thread my upper lip myself... not too difficult. Just the brows cuz of the shape is a bit of an issue. Doing the tweezer thing now.

Good luck!

Re: Threading of eyebrows [Zurich]

I don't normally check this thread and the notificiations stop after a while so if anyone wants the details of the gujerati lady that does threading, please PM me. I will not put up someone's personal details like phone number and address on a public forum.

Re: Threading of eyebrows [Zurich]

Ever heard of "Muniyandi vilas" a srilankan food joint in Wiedikon. The lady who runs it once told me about an indian lady upstairs who did eyebrow threading for 10 franks. This was about 6 months back.
