Does anyone have a recommendation for a good hair stylist and eyebrow threader in the Gaithersburg/Germantown (Maryland) area? Doesn't have to be the same person or even in the same salon.<br><br>
Almost every salon I've gone to has done a terrible job with my hair and brows! Some of them are reasonably priced, others were over priced - same results though!<br><br>
I've completely re-grown my brows back to their original shape (bushy). I need to get my brows done more then my hair at this point so any recommendations you have will be great!

If you would be willing to go to Frederick; the JcPenny salon/spa has an awesome stylist named Heather that I just loved.<br>
there is somewhere up here that does threading too, I just can't think of the name at the moment.... perhaps it was at JcP too..... i'm tired let me think about it.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Try Cutting Edge (I think they changed their name to shapers salon?) on 355. It's in rockville, but pretty far north. Nilam does a really good job and it's not too expensive. Wouldn't get my hair done there, and it's not much to look at, but I go there every other week or else I look like a man.

The threader definitely isn't at JcP (well actually they <span style="text-decoration:underline;">could</span> have someone there, I don't really know), I can't think of where though either. I saw it in Frederick Mag and was so excited as the only place I was going to was in Towson. I'll try to remember to look it up, I'm way overdue myself.

Ooo, is the one in Towson called Usha?<br><a href="http://www.ushasalon.com/?" target="_blank">http://www.ushasalon.com/?</a><br>
I went there at its old location and just found it by googling it (I forgot the name but happened across it while looking up threading faq's!) I love getting my eyebrows threaded. I have no idea when I first heard about threading, maybe in my study of India before I went there.<br>
It feels so much more natural and I KNOW it must be much safer then waxing as far as transferring bacteria and such. Waxing means direct contact with your face and not everyone uses gloves- I don't know what MD law is on that. Plus, some places will put the wax on your brow, and then dip it back in the wax. If they do that for you, they most likely do that for every one... yuck! Also, some people have really sensitive skin, and so the wax makes them break out. Threading just uses a piece of thread that is single use only.<br>

Yes that's the one. I used to live maybe 10 minutes from their old location so it was great. I drove to the old place once from Frederick right after they had opened their new location, so I got the info for their new place but haven't gone there.<br><br>
I finally got out my Frederick Mags and started looking for the blurb on the Frederick place. Lucky me I found it within the first 30 pages of the first mag I started flipping through! It is:<br>
Sam Wong Salon<br>
10 N Market Street<br>
301-663-5900<br><br>
The blurb in the Feb 07 Frederick Mag issue goes:<br>
"One of our favorites is the personable and intimate ambience of Market Street newcomer Sam Wong Salon and its organic, earth-friendly products. The popular Italian Davines line gives you a free half refill when you return the container. Inquire about "threading," a gentler, more accurate waxing alternative. Supriya Gupla offers her services three days a week - Tracy gave it a try and was a convert on the spot."<br><br>
If they have a website, I haven't found it. But I don't have much time to check right now.
