For some reason that I still don't fully understand, most women despise the sight of their own body hair and will go to extremes to have it removed. Not on top of their head mind you but on every other part of their body. Most men also find excessive hair growth on females unattractive so is it any wonder that we will go to such great lengths to have these unruly outcrops removed. We are prepared to have it shaved, plucked and literally ripped from our bodies all in the name of beauty. Well unfortunately for my husband the days of my pursuit of hairless beauty could be over. Yesterday I went to the hairdresser to have my haircut and she asked if I wanted my eyebrows waxed while I was there. Sure! That saves me another trip to the salon. Now I have my brows waxed all the time...and while yes, it is a little uncomfortable..I'm tough...I can handle it. Well not yesterday. This women didn't only manage to remove a few unruly eyebrow hairs but she was also able to take a good part of my eyelids with it. She assured me that they looked "just great" even though my eyes were watering like crazy and I was starting to have some difficulty opening my eyes. By the time I got home my eyelids were an oozing, puffy mess - (gross I'm sorry but it is the truth)..Today they are a little better so I had to take this picture and share the damage. My husband tells me that he thinks the damage is permanent and my Friend Dana tells me it looks like I am wearing pink eye shadow.So I can see this trauma coupled with the current financial crisis are all pointing me towards one thing...Good bye waxing...hello mono-brow!
