Eyebrow Shaper Warning or Self-Defacing Humor


I have only gotten my eyebrows professionally arched once in my life time. I know to many who do this on a regular basis this may seem odd. I really enjoyed my perfectly arched eyebrows that one time. I suppose the reasons I don't do it more often would be that... I don't make the time, it costs too much and my eyebrows, like my hair and fingernails grow toooo fast, so I would have to do it too often. I would prefer to spend my free time blogging, knitting, sewing, quilting and reading.
Last week I went to Walgreens and treated myself to some new nail polish and lipstick and saw these eyebrow shapers. I didn't read the instructions, (big mistake) and thought they were just hair thinning combs for eyebrows. I started combing over my eyebrows and realized I had shaved them off. YIKES!!!! No eyebrows. Now I will have to pencil them in like this guy.

This may one time when it seems my eyebrows grow very slowly.

LOTFL...LOL...Take a picture and post. I would love to see them...If you don't want to post your face just post your eyes and brows or should I say no brows. LOL...

Oh you poor baby. I won't tell sara who would be sad you didn't take the time to let a professional do it....

My best friend got me a kit called Eyebrow Queen that came with stencils, pencils, powder and brushes. I never used the stencils until Mimi lost her eyebrows from chemo. We shaved her head one day and pulled out the stencils and went to work making brows. They weren't half bad.

They'll grow back and hey, you just created another rocking chair memory!

Oi Veh, Brenda! ROFL!

Well, I shouldn't really laugh. But as Rudee said they'll grow back. I have never had anything done to my eyebrows, nor do I do anything to them myself. I just leave them au natural. My daughter is always urging me to go get them done. But, nope, not me.

I vote with Ann. Have someone take a picture of only your brows, so we can see them. LOL. And have a great Sunday.

Hugs,

Renie

I once waxed them myself and took too much off accidentally. Unlike shaving, it didn't grow back. Now I bite the bullet and pay 10 bucks once a month to have it done. Always read instructions...ciao

Oops!!!

Sandy said...

OH NO!!! but they will grow back, right?? I've only plucked my eyebrows once in my life and it hurt like hell, forget that sh*t...I'd rather have busy eyebrows..haha.

ooohhh dear Brenda...that was a funny post, I'm sorry for laughing..

BJ said...

OMG! That must have been quite a shocker!!!! I probably would have cried my eyes out. At least you have reconciled the fact that they're gone but will grow back.

Your post about it is great though. You have an excellent attitude. It did make me laugh....

Brenda said...

Ha Ha, we will see about the picture part. Telling the story is one thing, a picture is another. It isn't pretty and this is one time I hope they grow fast!!! Then I promise to go to get them done by someone who knows how to do it. I amaze myself sometimes at my own stupidity, but it was funny enough to tell a story about and to WARN others who may have thought they were TRIMMERS not SHAVERS.

MYRA said...

LOL! Oh my! Too funny a story, but not in reality for you... I don't pluck, very blond, had it done once... ouch!

The Crusty Crone said...

Oh No!! Lucy, you din't!!

hahaha oh dear. But now you'll have a story to tell around the family table. I can hear it now. "Remember that time grandma shaved her eyebrows off?"

Oh dear. I feel for ya.

Betty Flocken said...

OH NO!!!! I'm not laughing! REALLY!!!!!

Winifred said...

Oh dear, but as they've all said, they will grow back. It'll be like watching a kettle boil, always takes ages!

Have to say I've never had my eyebrows done. I used to shape them myself but for the past few years they've been fine and haven't needed doing. Now they seem to be growing really long so I have to pull a few out now and again.
