Two eyebrows, please.

Where's a good place in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to get my eyebrows de-Munstered?

I'm a female with some pretty serious eyebrows (verging into eyebrow, singular, if I'm not careful). I've never had them waxed, shaped, or threaded before, and friends' terror tales of overwaxed sperm eyebrows make me fearful of having it done. I'd be fine with having thickish eyebrows as long as they no longer look as if someone needs to take a wheedwhacker to them, so I'd like to go to a place that will rip with discrimination.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good eyebrow wax or thread in the Twin Cities?

I'm pretty happy with the services of John English salons on Lake Street in Uptown - they always do a good job with me.

If White Bear Lake isn't too far to go, there's a salon in the Lifetime Fitness which is open to the public. I used to get my eyebrows waxed there and they were great about doing exactly what you want, shaping and de-bushying without taking it down to nothing.

There's also Rocco Altobelli, which has salons around the metro. Haven't had waxing there, but the hair and makeup folks are awesome, so the waxers probably are too, in their get-what-you-$$$pay-for way.

Not familiar with the Twin Cities specifically, but you might do what my wife does when we're out of town and it's that time (and you're not uncomfortable talking to strangers): ask the female staff at South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi) stores or restaurants.
