Best Threading Salons in Singapore
Tuesday, 27 Nov 2012
Considering how small eyebrows are, they are all too easily forgotten. Yet their shape and overall look actually makes an enormous difference to your face and – provided you know where to go – is such an easy thing to get right on the grooming front.
There is one technique we trust above all others: threading. Forget waxing and tweezing…the ancient Indian art of threading reigns supreme and literally does have the edge over the other techniques: the look is sharper.
Not really indulgent because it’s only $15, Browhaus has branches all over the island for your convenience. They are a chain with a good reputation and so far we have not been disappointed. Threading at Browhaus costs $15.
The other place that is utterly brilliant is a beauty parlor hidden away in the heart of Little India. Gooday Beautie has been here for 20 years and is owned by a delightful husband and wife team. There is no creepy staircase to climb, this beauty find is on the ground floor of a parade of shops towards the top of Serangoon Road and is beautifully clean and tidy.
Old-fashioned barber-style chairs (used for threading purposes) are lined up in the main room, one behind the other and are, more often than not, occupied. Brow threading costs just $5. Their precision and linear sharpness is like none other and parking – the thing that puts a lot of people off venturing to Little India – is very possible (park in the open air carpark hidden behind Serangoon Road on Belilios Lane; you’ll need coupons).
You can’t book an appointment at Gooday (you can at Browhaus) but just turn up and as long as you avoid lunchtime when there can be queues, as well as Saturdays, you should be fine. If you’re taking a taxi to get here and can’t see the numbers, get out where Serangoon Road crosses with Kerbau Road. Walk with the flow of traffic and Gooday is half a block down, on the left.
