19 years old – My first eyebrow threading experience
OUCHHH.. It still hurts and I’ve stopped doing them. I’ve been asked countless times, by men and women alike, on why I don’t groom my brows.
Well, here are the reasons.
- It hurts
- I don’t believe that grooming involves tuning your brows to a shape
- Go Natural!
- Sometimes, I just don’t bother a bimonthly visit to a salon to wait in line just to hurt myself
The giant prolific cosmetic industry has hoodwinked us to buy a lot, do a lot and use a lot (A lot of which has no use and purpose!!). The personal grooming scene nowadays involves a very complicated network of colorful products and much more convoluted ways to use them. It can set anyone nervous and on edge that you’re going to make a social fiasco somewhere down the lane.
There are plethora of other grooming ideas that have fast penetrated our lives and strangling us. Shaping your nails, unoiled hair and oh God forbid you have a silver hair peeking out!!
You miss something from this complication, somewhere someone is bound to ask you about that.
I agree that grooming your brows looks good. I had done them for my wedding and on the photos it looks awesome. I may do it again someday. Or maybe not.
I’m just not boxing myself into rules created by an hypocritical society, frowning upon age-old traditions in the name of modernity and at the same time bending over backwards to fit into the so-called modern society.
