How long before a photo shoot to get eyebrows done? And by what method?

I don't usually do anything to my eyebrows except trim the out-of-control curly old-man-eyebrow hairs. But in a few weeks, I am having a vintage pin-up photo shoot, and I really want to do it right. In addition to getting an actual manicure, I am thinking of having my eyebrows professionally done. Two questions:
1. What method would you recommend? I hear eyebrow threading is a thing? I assume whatever I get done will be painful, so perhaps advice about the method that will be over with the quickest?
2. How long before the shoot should I get them done, in order for any redness to have faded, but the new shrubbery not to have started growing back in? My best guess is about 48 hours. In your experience, am I in the ballpark?
