It is all about eyebrows now – or so I am told. It is just about 35 years too late for me.
As a teenager I had lovely soft blond hair and nice strong brows. I cried the first time my friend tried to pluck them. The fashion was for these beautiful thin plucked brows. I found it so painful that I really just hid them under my fringe for the most part. In my twenties I discovered waxing. No less painful, but far less drawn out. One or two swipes and beautiful brows are revealed.
Ironically now, I could really do with those brows of my youth. With the passing of the years, my eybrows have thinned out a little, but of course the straggly ones that were there at 15 are still there now.
I decided to try threading. Seemed so simple from the Youtube video. No hot wax, no nasty tweezers. How much can a length of cotton hurt? Quite a bit – but the result was well worth it. Thanks to Lyndsay at the Hair & Beauty Rooms in Westport. A beautiful job, despite the pain (which thankfully fades fast). Might even thing of brushing the eternal fringe to the side!
