Okay. I admitt it. I wax my eyebrows.
I can’t not. It’s sort of like an addiction, and it hurts sooo good. However, I’ve never tried to do it on my own. I barely have the moxie to go get it done at the salon! (You like that? Moxie? Yeah… I learned that from watching my brother in a performance of Lost In Yonkers yesterday. =^.^=)
So, the purpose of this article is to decide whether or not it’s better to get them done by a professional, or do them at home.
At the salon, it usually costs between $10 and $20. (But I won’t spend more than $12…) I like going to the salon because I can trust that the person ripping the little hairs out of my flesh knows what she’s doing, and can see what she’s doing in order to get a nice shape. Here, it never usually takes more than about ten minutes, tops.
At home, I’d be afraid to screw it all up, because I wouldn’t exactly be able to see what I’m doing, plus… inflicting pain on myself is a little different than having it inflicted on me. Also, an at-home kit costs between $25 and $100, but you get more than one use out of those! It’s a little more time consuming to do it yourself. It looks to average to be about a twenty minute process.
This is cool! It’s a step-by-step guide to brow shaping!
Also, I think it would be neat to find a place that can do threading! I’d just once like to try it out!
Something else that is on my list to try (and blog about) is getting my eyelashes dyed. I’m curious, and there’s a little salon down the street from my work that does it for about $20.
We shall see! Let me know what your opinion on waxing is!
