I have a love/hate relationship with my eyebrows.
As you would probably know, well-groomed defined eyebrows are one of the keys to frame the face and make you look ‘complete’.
I know how important it is to have your eyebrows look perfect and I definitely want the attention on them and not my huge frown lines between them
I have been growing my eyebrows for the last 12 months after an absolutely disastrous mishap where the Beautician waxed off a third of my left eyebrow! I have been drawing it on for the last year and I was finally brave enough to try my luck again.
With trepidation I rang a Beauty Salon that had been recommended to me by my Boss and booked in on Thursday for my eyebrow waxing.
One thing I didn’t do though was ask who actually did her eyebrows. BIG MISTAKE!
I was led into a lovely room and asked what I was looking for. I told the Beautician that I had had a couple of really bad experiences and that I was nervous about getting a good result.
We discussed that I wanted a natural look and that I would need my eyebrows trimmed a little as they get a bit curly if they are too long.
The waxing was no more painful than any other time and we chatted whilst she was working.
It wasn’t until she wielded her tweezers that I thought I may be in trouble.
Numerous times I felt that she was tweezing my skin instead of my rogue eyebrow hairs but I didn’t say anything – I have a high pain threshold and thought that because I hadn’t had it done for a long time that I was just being a bit sensitive.
Look at what she did to me!!
AFTER – excuse the lack of makeup
All of those red marks under my eyebrow are where she tweezed my skin and drew blood! This photo was taken two days after my appointment.
This happened on both of my eyebrows and I have been putting Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream on them since in the hope that they will not scar.
To add insult to injury my left eyebrow is much thicker than my right and I am either going to have to get them evened up or draw on my eyebrows again.
As I am getting older I don’t have as much eyebrow hair so there is a real possibility that the one that has been over waxed may not recover.
I can’t believe that this has happened and now feel that I can’t trust anyone to do my eyebrows properly.
What would you do? Would you contact the Company and tell them how unhappy you are? What would you expect the Company do to ‘compensate’ for your unhappiness?
I would love to hear your thoughts and hear of any beauty disasters that have happened to you.
