Waxing for the First Time! (brows/lip)

I became fed up with tweezing my bushy brows (or should I say brow?), and absolutely could not tolerate the festering thing that was becoming a mustache on my upper lip, so I went in for my first wax yesterday afternoon. It was only $18 total at Glow Med Spa. The atmosphere was quiet and soothing. Thanks to this, I didn’t get the slightest bit anxious at the thought of dozens of hairs being ripped from my face all at once.

I told the esthetician that I liked my brows full and natural looking, but much less unruly than their state upon entering. She gave me exactly what I wanted! I winced a little each time, and my eyes watered when we got to my lip, but it really was a positive treat-yoself experience!



After (1 day later, after the redness went away):


In neither of these photos did I use a brow pencil, which I normally do use.

I have already booked my next appointment — 4 weeks away! Can’t believe I’m saying that I am looking forward to another waxing. Goodbye, tweezers and magnifying mirror! Burn in hell, almost-mustache! Hello, supermodel brows! Well, I’m allowed to feel like that, right?

    Do you know if this causes the hair to grow back darker or thicker? Ive just been bleaching mine with Jolen x

      From what I have read, as you wax, the hair that grows back is finer and sparser. I hope it does!! I have very thick, dark hair.
