My sensitive skin and hot wax really don’t mix. When I go to get my eyebrows waxed, I feel like the top layer of my skin comes right off…and then, the bumps and ingrown hairs start.
So, when in Houston, I mentioned to my mom that I wanted to try out getting my eyebrows threaded. She knew just the place. During nap time, we were off.
Mom didn’t warn me. She just let the nice little lady direct me to a chair where she told me to lay my head back. And, to hold my eye shut and pull up my eyebrow, just like this picture.
Then, the nice little lady said, in a very strong and very serious voice “DON’T MOVE!”
Yeah, not intimidating at all. I got scared.
And, then she started.
As a person who didn’t yell or curse or anything like that during the birth of my children, you’d be surprised to hear that I did yell. “Frick!” (promise…I didn’t actually cuss this time).
Why? It hurt.
I thought it was a one hair at a time sort of thing. Not an entire row of hairs all pulled out at the same time.
It felt like a razor was slicing the hair off of my face.
Tears? Rolling down my face.
And, then, she was done with the first eye. Whew.
But, wait. We’ve got to do the second eye. Pretty much a repeat of the first. This time I yelled “ouch!” And, I meant it.
The good news? No bumps or ingrown hairs. The bad news? They recommend doing it every two weeks!
Yeah, I still haven’t found a place in the ATL to get it done. I haven’t decided if I will.
Have you had your eyebrows or anything else threaded? Love it or hate it? Once you thread you never go back?
