Eyebrow threading?? [Geneva]

Does anyone know where I can find someone in Geneva who does eyebrows threading? I had a horrible experience with one beautician who waxed my eyebrows almost completely, near Gare Carnavin. I dont mind tweezer either. Anyone who can do it well, Indian beauticians are very good in it but I cannot find any in Geneva :-(

If you are willing to travel to Neuchatel then my wife would definitely be willing to do this for you. She's excellent at it.

Or if there are enough people in Geneva she could go to Geneva.

I'm surprised there is no one here doing it. Threading is way better than waxing or plucking. So tidy and far less stressful.

Re: Eyebrow threading?? [Geneva]

there's one in lausanne. on rue de la pontaise. don't remember the name, but it's number 27 across from the kiosk. she's great, very nice and i think i paid 20 chf.s for the first time and 10 or 15 for maintenance. worth it, she won't make them pencil thin (unless, i guess you want that)

Re: Eyebrow threading?? [Geneva]

Can anyone recommend someone for eyebrow threading in Zurich? I've searched quite a bit and all the threads are either quite old or filled with people promoting themselves. I'd love a recommendation that comes following a personal good experience. Thanks!!

Their charge for threading range from 10 CHF to 25 CHF.

Bus no.1, stop name:Oiseaux. The parlour is just across the road.
Just a 2016 ammendment, either take the 1 bus towards blécherette and get off at druey-college, and walk about 80m up hill; the place will be to your left across the street.
Or take the 8, the 22, or the 60 bus to grand borde and walk up escalier de coteau, continue onto rue traversière and turn right; beauty centre will be just to your left up ahead.

I got my eyebrows down for 20 francs without any wait. I tried to call to make an appointment before hand but no one was answering the phone.
The place does accept walk ins and the employees spoke english, french, and arabic. The thread took about 15-20 min.
If you have sensitive skin or acne, I strongly recommend you bring your own after supplies though they do a very careful job of not irritating ones' skin.

Beware if you use Google maps the place isn't registered or something and the app will give you a yoga place in the same area about 30m off. The directions for public transport though are spot on.
