Things I love about NYC: eyebrow salons

Me: That smells great. Is it lavender?

Eyebrow threading lady: it’s baby powder

Me: Oh. OK.

She put something on a tissue and dabbed it on my eyebrows before threading them. How was I to know?!

I was tempted to take this picture with me to the brow place today. Aren’t hers great? But instead I let the woman do her thing and follow the natural shape of things.

Threading hurts a little, but I much prefer it to having a stranger wield hot wax over my face. The price is also right: just $6 at my neighborhood spot. (although if I worked for Google, it would be free)

I pop in for a touch-up every month or so and then tweeze between visits.

Have you tried threading?

    I’ve never done threading, but after the debacle of my last wax, I think it might be time. “Hello! That was my skin!” And if I could get it done at work…even if not free….life would be sooooo much easier!
