Today, I took Karess out for a girls’ night out to Forever Flawless. We had originally planned to get facials, and Karess even researched on Flawless’ services that she can try. But we got stuck at work until way past seven, so when we arrived at Flawless Robinsons Galleria, the only services available were waxing. Well, that’s okay, because Karess had already considered getting her eyebrows waxed. Perfect!
We were led to the waxing room. It was a small one but surprisingly cozy. Karess was asked to lie down and relax on the bed while Normie, her beautechnician prepared the honey wax they were going to use.
Honestly, I haven’t seen anyone get their eyebrows waxed before, so I don’t really know how it works. What Normie did was put the wax on a cotton swab for precision. We didn’t want too much eyebrows removed, after all. Karess wanted to have her natural eyebrow shape retained, and only have stray hair strands cleaned.
Our faces are sensitive, of course, and out eye area are even more so. So accuracy was necessary when dealing with sticky wax on the eyebrows, and I was glad to see that it was done properly.
Note to waxing newbies: take a deep breath in preparation, and then exhale in a puff as the waxing strip is quickly pulled. The quicker the strip is pulled, the less it is. Believe me, exhale when it’s pulled; not inhale. Inhaling makes you tense even more. I know from three years of having my legs waxed.
It was over in 5 minutes. Karess, who is used to having her eyebrows threaded, was pleasantly surprised at how fast waxing was. Actually, she’s now convinced to switch over to waxing regularly. Yey!
I, on the other hand, have been shaving my eyebrows. Maybe I should try eyebrow waxing at Flawless, too, ei?
