I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time last week by a sweet, petite young woman from India who spoke little English. The procedure was quick and relatively painless (well, as painless as getting your hairs ripped out by their roots can be). It only took five minutes and cost a mere five bucks and I will definitely have it done again. My eyebrows are really sparse on their edges so I’ve always found it hard to eke out any real shape to them, but this lady worked some magic.
After she completed by brows she sat poised with more thread in her mouth and said, “We do upper lip now?” and I kind of shook my head no, since I didn’t think it was necessary. The look in her eyes, however, told me that she thought I was unknowingly taking part in Movember. I have fair hair and didn’t really think I had a freaking MOUSTACHE. Live and learn.
Long live the ‘stache! (Maybe the cute baby will detract from my manly facial hair.)
Have you ever had threading done? What’s your favourite method of hair removal? Have you ever had a Brazillian? Inquiring minds need to know!
