Tweeze This!


The other day I noticed a caterpillar crawling on my face....two of them actually! As I was getting ready to whack those things off...I realized it was my eyebrows. I didn't need to whack them off...I needed to wax them off!
I am in a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows. I hate doing them...I love having them done. I normally keep up the maintenance on them myself...yesterday I decided to go get them waxed and shaped!
Here's the thing about the experience....it makes me homicidal! I can deal with the wax part (although I always cringe right before they pull it off and then afterwards I'm like...that's not that bad). What I can't deal with is the tweezing at the end!! I literally have to lay on my hands so that I do not choke or punch the sweet person who is doing my eyebrows! I would say for everyone two hairs they pull out with no problem...there is ONE that makes me see stars!! My experience yesterday was no different....Instead of just picturing choking and punching...I also channelled my inner Jackie Chan and pictured kicking her. Oh but it doesn't stop there....There was one point where she was leaning over my face and I was channelling my inner vampire/pit bull as I pictured biting her!
And then its over and like nothing ever happened. I am back to my happy self, getting on with my day. I shall be content and happy with my eyebrows (until my next appointment in three weeks!).
Oh the joys of being a woman!

I know exactly what you're talking about! I haaate tweezing. Waxing is fine, makes me flinch a little, but mainly out of surprise.

I wish they didn't have to tweeze and I wish they didn't try to tweeze so many hairs at the same time.

Speaking of this, I think it's almost time for me to go back. ...sigh

Haha. I agree! It is sooo painful!

Busted Kate said...

LMAO!! Caterpillars, love it.

Ok, don't kill me, but I don't ever have to tweeze my brows. I inherited these tiny, thin brows. I don't mind not having to tweeze, but I'd love to have a little something more going on up there. I actually put that lash enhancer stuff on 'em to try and make them thicker!

Yes, totally agree!

I'm with Kate, I have never tweezed or waxed my brows, I have been lucky thus far in life that they have stayed thin and well shaped (don't hate me) but I am beginning to fear they will be growing random stray hairs as I get older and my tweeze free days will be over

You're right, there's always one hair that hurts like H*ll!

I nearly forgot - I nominated you for an award on my blog.

I hate hate hate all things with eyebrows. It makes my eyes water, makes me sneeze, makes me curse like a sailor....I don't know HOW women survive waxes in other regions?!?

Kate and Holly said not to hate them, but I think I do! I didn't realize some women don't have to deal with it at all! What the heck!!
