This is an appreciation post for my new eyebrow lady. I don’t actually know her name yet, therefore she will remain anonymous for the time being, but what a legend she is.
I’ve been to see her twice thus far because my last eyebrow lady seems to be going on 6 month holidays twice a year! Lucky babe! I mean, how else would you explain never being in your place of work without a reason? I went to her salon on several ocassions in the space of 4-6 months and she was constantly “off on holiday”. She took my eyebrow game with her to Lanzarote and left me with Epping Forest growing under my forehead and above my eye. 😭
This post isn’t about my old eyebrow lady (who by the way is very sweet and lovely – albeit selfish! 😂).
My new eyebrow lady though – amazing. I’ve been to see her twice. The first time she saw me, she was like “OMG!” I was like: “tell me about it, girlfriend!” Then she says: “do you not have one regular eyebrow lady? Your eyebrows seem to be all over the place…” I could’ve got offended by that comment, but it takes a lot to get me offended so I just replied with: “does it LOOK LIKE I DO?” – in a more sincere tone. The cheeky so-and-so! Anyway, she tried pulling it back by saying: “no, it’s just there’ve been some chunks taken out in the top and bottom.” FML! Never tweeze them yoursleves unless you’re a pro, girls! I was so worried that she wouldn’t be able to fix it, but I’d worn a fringe for much of the year anyway that I could just put it down to cover what lay beneath…
Cut a longer than this story short (I could go on forever, but I’ll spare you because it’s Christmas, Hannukah and almost the New Year), she sorted my eyebrows out there and then, HURRAY! I loved what I saw then so much that I pulled my ‘at a really annoying length-stage’ fringe back and enjoyed showing off my new stronger than ever ‘eyebrow game’ whilst also getting some much anticipated (and needed) fresh air to my previously suffocated forehead pores.
The second time I saw her, today, she sorted them out even more as the “missing chunks” had started growing. YAY for hair growth in the right places! I love how feathered they look. You can see each hair strand by strand. 😍
*will upload a photo later when I look less like Frankenstein’s wife 1000 times divorced instead of removed*
My eyebrow lady is boss. She better not go on holiday or else I’m going with her – the beach. I legit will just invite myself and when I see her I’ll just shout: “fancy seeing you here *insert name here*, want to do my eyebrows here on the sun-lounger as we sip on some pina coladas and catch a golden glow or two?”
Love and light,
