You may not know this about me, but I'm obsessed with eyebrows.
I have dark hair and very thick eyebrows. Around 6th grade I sprouted a unibrow and that is when I began to focus on my eyebrows. I became rather obsessed with making sure I did not have a unibrow EVER, and as I got a little older I started to shape my eyebrows.
I will admit that I could have done a slightly better job, and it wasn't until my friend Jenn introduced me to the art of eyebrow waxing (she had a birthday party where her mom hired a woman to wax all of us ... how cool is that?) that I truly understood the difference that a well-groomed eyebrow could make in a woman's life.
That began my obsession with a well groomed brow.
I've had many hairstyles and colours. I've been fat and not-so-fat. I've had good make-up days and bad, and I've had many shapes of eyebrows, but for the past 12 years or so I've had a well-groomed brow.
I've tried many methods from allowing my sister to wax my eyebrows (except she waxed my eyes shut and I lost a lot of brows) to tweezing to pre-cut wax strips and maybe even shaving.
The truth is that my best look is just getting my brows professionally done. It never costs more than $20, and it's worth it.
But, lately I've let my brows go.
Okay, so it wasn't terrible, but it was very noticeable to me. I've gone about 6 weeks without proper upkeep and I fely practically manly. In fairness, I've been headachey and sick. And, I've been busy at work and I usually just run out on a lunch hour.
But, today I booked an appointment at 3pm and ran over between meetings. I go to a little spa near work, so I was there and back within about 20 minutes.
Not only do I feel myself again, but ...
I learned that a thicker brow is in. And, my grown in look wasn't all that bad. In fact, my aesthetician said that she didn't have much work to do because my brows looked healthy. I was shocked!!!!
And, how great is this timing. As much as I don't want to let them get too thick, knowing that I won't need to worry too much about brow maintenance when this baby arrives is a good thing. Cause yes, I will be obsessing just a bit about my brows in between trying to raise a baby and toddler and get some sleep.
And, do you want to know something else? I do judge people by their brows, and now that Phat Daddy and I have been married almost 7 years he will tell you that he does too. Sad. I know!
