Last weekend, I had a life changing experience. Seriously. I had been actively searching for over a year for the best place in El Salvador to get my eyebrows groomed, and I have found it. Cue fireworks, angels singing and bouquets of flowers. After visiting over 10 different salons and spas to get my eyebrows waxed, I had grown very frustrated because no one understood what I wanted for my eyebrows. In this quest for the perfect eyebrow, I suffered horrible accidents. There was the one time, when the "brow expert", over waxed my brows and I was forced to wear eyebrow makeup for two months. There was another time, when the wax they used gave me a rash. And then there was the worst one of all, when the girl who waxed me burnt my face. No kidding.
About three months ago, I started hearing girls talking about "this cuban guy" who did eyebrow threading at a supermarket (!!!) of all places. "He's the best". "He totally changed the way my eyebrows look". "I'd never go anywhere else". So after years of turning to wax for my brows, I am proud to say NO MORE, I am a threading convert! The process takes about 10 minutes, and it does hurt a bit (more than waxing), but it is so worth it. Maybe it's because he's pulling each hair out one by one that you get an eyebrow shape like no other: defined, clean and not too thin. Seriously, YOU MUST TRY THIS!
It's $6 for every part you want to wax on your face (brows, mustache, cheeks, you name it!), and $25 for your legs.
The place is not a salon, it's just a guy with a very small booth at a supermarket. He's located at La Despensa de Don Juan Escalon (75 Av Norte, next to Burger King). You go inside and look for the booths next to the cash registers, he's the last one.
Hours: Monday through Saturday 10am-2pm, 3pm-7pm, closed on Sundays.
