My eyebrows have been devirginized.
Yup. I finally gave in and had my eyebrows threaded last Saturday. It was a noble reason I tell you. I managed to dodge having my eyebrows plucked/shaved for the last 25 years of my life, but I finally caved in last Saturday.
All of my graduation pictures had me showing off my virgin eyebrows. Not that my eyebrows are messy, mind you. I actually have ok shaped eyebrows with some strays here and there, but it never looked messy. I've managed to avoid having them plucked even when most of my high school and college friends were shaping theirs.
One condition that I gave to the person who threaded my brows before she started was that she should only work on cleaning up the strays. No changing my actual eyebrow shape. And I tell you, she did a pretty good job! I want to go back to that salon and have my eyebrows threaded again when the strays begin to grow. They made it so easy for me (easy not painless) to accept my new, spanking brows. Not that it changed much. But my face does look cleaner.
And I looked half decent for Saturday's wedding. Half decent that my officemates teased me about being pretty in pink. And the flattery did not stop there, they even said that I deserved a second and third look that day because I stood out.
I love the miracle of a nice dress and a good make-up artist. :)
