Eyebrow waxing sucks.

The time has come once again to sit in a chair and have my eyebrows threaded. Ouch. Even though I have been doing it for a while now, it still stings and makes my eyes water. I tried waxing once. I went in super excited, ready to finally have great brows. I was not prepared for what happened next. First off, it hurt a lot, up until then I had only tweezed a little so I had no experience with pain. Then it took weeks for my eyebrows to fully recover. I had discovered how sensitive my skin was. I had walked away very very red and eventually had scabs on my face. I look back and laugh now, but I missed school because I didn't want to go to school looking like that! Luckily I did it during winter break and actually only missed two days of school. My eyebrows were thinner and had a pretty good shape to them. That was freshman year of high school. I started tweezing them myself after that, but they never looked like when they were waxed. I couldn't tweeze the top because the hairs were just too small and thin, it would've taken forever and I probably would've messed up my brows. It wasn't until senior year that I discovered threading. My younger cousin told me about the place she goes to and I tried it out. Yay! With toner, I can now actually go out in public later that day. I wish I could say the same about my upper lip, that area takes a bit longer. Yes, I have a (very light/thin/barely noticeable) mustache. I never really thought about it, but I decided to get my upper lip done on one of my visits. Wow, now I see the difference between not having it done and having it done. I guess it was a little noticeable, but I insist I did not look like Yosemite Sam. Not one bit. Really. If you're located in the south bay try out Image Beauty Salon in Sunnyvale on El Camino.

I stick to threading exclusively now. It hurts, (sometimes it hurts more than other), but it's so worth it!
