Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


You get what you pay for


This is what I get for trying to save $10.

I'm not even going to post a picture because I'm so depressed. I went to get my eyebrows waxed to touch up where the stray hairs are growing back in. The salon I went to before was $20. The gal who works with my hairdresser said she does it for $10. I'm thinking 'how hard can it be when the shape is already there?'

Apparently, pretty hard.

I should have known what would happen when I looked at her eyebrows. She has those pencil thin onese. I'm an earthy natural kind of girl. I wear very little makeup and just prefer the natural look. So, I liked my naturally shaped eyebrows that were just thinned out a little.

Dear God. I just pray that my eyebrows can grow out quickly and I won't look like a freak in the meantime.

*deeper sigh*

Mayb I can avoid the mirror for the next month. No one who knows me and sees me is allowed to agree with me on how bad they look. Deal? Just act like you don't even notice.

    I don't see why you wax them in the first place.

    Oh and do I get to see a pic, or do I have to wait until I get home? (you can email me one if you don't want to post one here)

    I've had the bad eyebrow job before. I feel your pain!
    It took a while for mine to grow back to my liking, but now I just tweeze the little buggers myself.
    Tell everyone you're playing Norma Desmond at the community theater!
    Or drink enough margaritas until you no longer care.

    Well, I did get to see LabKat for lunch and she assured me that they aren't bad. Trust me, she would tell me, too, if they looked like ass. So, that is a bit of a relief. And, I did drink a bellini to help myself relax.

    and, AoD, you won't like them. I know that already. You just have to wait till you get home. I'll try to have all the lights dimmed. Come home after dark.

    how long did it take for them to grow back? i just ran into a similar problem myself... except this is the girl i've always gone to, who does an excellent job of maintaining my existing shape.

    for some reason yesterday, it was a free-for-all, and now they're incredibly thin with the hook in the front -- yikes!!!

    I would say about two months. Wish I could be more encouraging. I just didn't look at them during that time. No one else noticed but me. So, take comfort in that fact.
