I’m not afraid to leave home sans makeup, but there are two things I am absolutely OCD about: clean brows, and clean, healthy-looking nails. Those two things are pretty non-negotiable for me. I don’t know why it’s those two things, but it just is! Many years ago, some crazy esthetician whacked off the tails of my eyebrows, and my brows haven’t been the same since. I’ve spent years treating them with TLC, with the hopes of making them look fuller than they really are, but I haven’t been 100% successful. I know this situation sounds familiar to so many of you.
About six weeks ago, I had a brow experience that nearly sent me into a tizzy. I realize it’s not the end of world, but my regular threader wasn’t in because she’s on vacation for a few weeks (you know I can’t wait that long!), so I reluctantly sat in another gal’s chair. That was my first mistake. A few minutes later, I looked in the mirror, and my stomach nearly dropped. She got a little too happy with the thread like it was a weed whacker. I politely tipped and got out of there, but I was so bummed. You’re thinking—Amber, it’s hair—it will grow back. I assure you, it’s a struggle to get my sparse little hairs to reappear. I left there knowing I had to rehab my brows all over again, and I have been ever since. Great.
