Several years ago I had a traumatic run-in with a salon, some wax and those pesky stray hairs north of my eyeballs. Long story short, I left with only one shaped brow and considerably less skin.
Needless to say, my motivation to return to (any) salon for a socially acceptable level of eyebrow maintenance (via hot lava wax and rippin’ strips) was quite low.
But last week I gave myself good a look in the mirror and said, Listen here, Bert, this can’t go on.
So on a pretty high recommendation I took my pet caterpillars over to see Christina at blink salon. And rather than putting myself through the skin-tearing torture that still haunts my dreams, I booked an appointment for eyebrow threading.
If you can believe it, Christina used one tiny piece of thread (and some pretty fancy hand/wrist action) to clean up my brows in about five minutes.
And it just so happens that noted Twin Cities beauty blogger, Elizabeth Dehn, was at the salon at the same time for the same treatment! As a demonstration for her blog and, let’s face it, proof that I actually got this done, “BeautyBets” herself video taped my appointment.
Stop on over to Elizabeth’s blog to see the fast-paced threadin’ action for yourself:
Oh, and if you’re wondering if Elizabeth is really this adorable in person, the answer is no – she’s even cuter. She’s one of those people who makes you feel like you have known her for years–even if your only experience with her has been lying belly-up in a salon chair.
I appreciate her taking it easy on the zoom button during our video session. Here’s hoping the poor thing didn’t have to see my nose hairs…
