I was nervous! Trying a new spot for a Brazilian is terrifying. I've been going to Bliss which is efficient and relatively painless. However, had gotten my brows threaded at Shobha before and was happy so I gave it a try. I am a BIG wimp

Shobha does threading and waxing/sugaring- while their prices are a bit more than you will pay at other places, it's worth it for the comforting environment and skilled specialists who do everything they can to make it a pleasant and pain-free experience.

Terrible. The woman did not introduce herself, ask my name or what I wanted. When she was done, I was left with lopsided brows. And, you have to use the (public) bathroom all the way down the hall. Overall bad experience.
