In an attempt to try New Things as they relate to every part of my life, on Day 157, I got my eyebrows threaded.
Threading is an Indian tradition for removing unwanted hair from the body, and is a little less painful than waxing. The process is just like it sounds. The women take two piece of thread and twist them in a way that creates a little hair-pulling-out machine. They put the thread on your skin and glide over your brow, shaping it to perfection.
I sat down in their little chair and the girl went to work on my brows. It didn't take nearly as long as waxing does, and although it was a new sensation to get used to, it didn't hurt.
The technician shaped my brows beautifully, and I was really excited about the whole thing. No redness, less time, beautiful brows!
The only problem was that I needed to have the hairs trimmed. I grow just ridiculously long eyebrow hair, and it's something I almost always request or receive in my normal routine of waxing.
Just when I started to trust her, she pulled out the mirror.
BAD SNIPPING JOB.
I lost half an eyebrow in a cutting casualty.
I'll stick to waxing after all.
|After. Check the right side of my face. And the fury in my eyes.|
