Momma said there’d be days like this…


April 29, 2011 by Kim

About 4 weeks ago, for the first time in all my 33 years of life, I went and had my eyebrows waxed

I’m not sure why it took me all those years to finally break down and try it.

Oh…wait, it’s probably because I pretty much shaved them off in high school and they have refused to grow back correctly…


So, simply put, I have very little ‘brow

If I was asked to name my 2 worst enemies.. it would be

1. Satan

2. The Brows

yeah, it’s that bad.

So today, while running amuck throughout town, I decided I should probably go in for round 2.

I was much less anxious than the first time… totally knew what to expect.

I laid back in the chair and closed my eyes as my little Korean eyebrow artist began to work her magic

as she was spreading the hot wax around the brows I heard her quietly say “lip too?”

I quickly said no… and didn’t give it a second thought…

I mean, they always ask…

I heard her timid voice again “No lip? …. you REALLYneed lip”

My eyes popped the hell open and I stared at her… thinking I MUST have heard her wrong…

She stared at the floor and repeated “You really need lip”


I quickly agreed to let her wax my lip. 

You have to understand… I’m already embarrassed getting the brows done.  I hate feeling like people are looking at me.

But the brows aren’t that bad… eyebrows are supposed to have hair.  I don’t feel like a circus freak when I’m getting my brows done.

But, the lip….. oh, buddy. 


Somehow I made it through, unscathed.

Brows groomed up

and free of the apparent handlebar mustache that I never knew  I had.

  1. Umm, yeah, that’s exactly how I ended up being a regular lip waxer. I’m totally hyper-aware of it now. Maybe bordering on a complex. Eeesh. Do they do this to everyone?

      I believe they do…but, she has never been that persistant about it before though. I honestly think she would have jumped on top of me and waxed the lip regardless of my answer the second time… lol

  2. […] knew I needed to get the brows waxed again…  and in remembrance of my last trip to the salon….   I opted to ask for the lip to be done too…  I figured I’d save us all the hassle […]

Tell me how you REALLY feel...
