This is how my eyebrows used to look like, last year, when I maintained them myself…
Then I was told to grow them out for my wedding, and I crossed the finish line of my first marathon sporting these caterpillars:
So the week I left to Rio to get married, I went over to Pentagon City Mall, and for ten bucks, I had my eyebrows threaded for the first time in my life, and only second time in my life having them professionally done, a good 10 years after the first time when they were waxed.
It hurt like a bitch, but I came out with these babies… (Ignore the asymmetrical eyes, these were at my makeup trial, so the different eye make up was on purpose. In case you’re wondering, I chose the left one.)
Since then, I can’t go back to the old ways. Sure, I still groom them in between appointments just to make sure I don’t get those wild eyebrows.
Last week, on my super indulgent day, I headed over to Browhaus, an upscale (and not very cheap) brow threading place in Greenbelt. I even signed up for a package, so for the next year or so I won’t have to open my wallet there again (and I get to save almost $5 with each visit).
And if you’ve read about my weekend post, you noticed that my eyebrows now look much nicer than the first picture taken, a year ago.
So if you haven’t tried threading, I TOTALLY recommend it! Sure, even with threading, my eyebrows don’t always look perfect – the sun seems to lighten them really quickly, so sometimes despite my best efforts I sport this…
(Yes, I know, close up of a burned freckled face is not doing me any favors.)
But a half groomed eyebrow is still better than a half-caterpillar, no?
Have YOU tried threading?
