I have had my eyebrows waxed many, many times. It’s nice if you have the time to go to a nice place where they play zen music and have little waterfalls and shit, but honestly? I usually don’t. Two kids and a job will take the time right out of you.
Last week when we stopped by the mall, I noticed a new brow shaping place had opened up and that they did threading. I had heard about threading before, but was totally not convinced that it was legit and actually worked. Also? I’m Italian. I have crazy eyebrows. You’re going to get them to behave with string? Right.
But at $10, I couldn’t really pass it up. I mean, a decent wax will run you about $35 so this was definitely a deal.
Now, let me just tell you again – I’ve been waxed before, many times. I like to think I’m a pretty decent waxee. I don’t flinch, I don’t wiggle, I don’t say OW! I just sit there and take it and leave with my puffy browbone when I’m done.
But this fucking hurt.
I still didn’t do any of the things I mentioned above; I mean, my kids were there and I had to be tough, right? But yeah, to me it hurt a LOT more than waxing. As the lady was doing it, she was actually telling me that it probably would hurt more, but that because they’re not pulling at the skin like waxing does, it’s better in the long run because it doesn’t promote wrinkles. I’m sure that’s their big selling point, but really, it makes sense.
So I don’t have a before picture of them, but trust me – it wasn’t pretty. I’m more than pleased with how they turned out, and for ten bucks plus a tip, I’ll be going back f’sho.
The rest of the day was Crazy Errand Running Day – Ikea for a new comforter for Jake, lunch on the coast, grocery shopping, a Fry’s stop and finally home to put my feet up for a bit before I start laundry, dinner and the very, very scary 30 Day Shred.
I have a feeling I’m going to be in bed early tonight.
