When an eyebrow wax goes wrong…

This was supposed to be a routine exercise, when I go and have my eyebrows tidied at the beautician, because the arch of my brow always looks neater when they do it. I have been going to this place for years. Today, I was unlucky to be in the hands of a beautician who went a bit overboard with the wax and chopped a whole chunk off my brows in the middle.


eyebrow mess



It’s horrible and it makes me feel like so crap. Thank you Naomi for messing my brows up. I will make sure never to visit your place again. Bad enough I’ve grown paranoid about having my fringe cut off at the hairdressers in case I fall in the hands of a scissors maniac hairdressers, now I am going to be scared whenever I go for an eyebrow wax. Or maybe I need outline them in white pencil or something, with the white indicating where they are supposed to take the hair from. I look like a knob with these brows which are so far apart, you could park a campavan in the middle.Sad smile

That sucks! Over a year ago someone waxed off the middle of my brow. I was livid. I bought a good eyebrow makeup kit and made due, even at my wedding. Now its almost grown back, its almost 1.5 years later.

Oh your poor eyebrows! I've been debating getting my eyebrows waxed recently. Its hearing about things like this happening that has been stopping me. Think I'm just going to stick with my tweezers and slightly messy brows. I just know they'd take way too much off :/ xo

Aww sweetie, if it's any consolation from your pictures you still look gorgeous, but I know how it feels when someone else ruins your ideal appearance! I'm exactly the same, and I'm petrified of letting anyone near my eyebrows :( hope they grow back soon xxxxx

Rrrrrage! Firstly, you don't look like a knob, I hope you gave that incompetent fool a piece of your mind!
A good brow kit and some shades outside will tide you over until they grow back.

I'm so annoyed for you x

Lily said...

Oh gosh! That's so bad :( hopefully they will grow back quickly though. I never let anyone other than myself mess with my eyebrows x

That woman should be shot for crimes against beauty! Now go out and buy a good pair of tweezers so you don't ever have to let an incompetent fool near your brows again.

Last time I had my eyebrows waxed the woman messed them up. She made one thinner than the other. I hate them now and have to thicken the other one up and it never looks right.

That sucks - I think you still look lovely - but I know how it feels when you aren't happy with your appearance and it is someone else who has messed it up. Hope you complained!

Get out the eyebrow pencil until they grow back? You'll be looking like yourself again in no time :) x

You still look beautiful! They looked perfect before and I don't think they look bad now but it's all about how you feel with them. Write a letter of complaint to the company, it will make you feel better and hopefully they will think twice next time they perform an eyebrow treatment again! xx

I feel for you. Years ago I went to a Clarins institute to have my brows done and she totally messed with them. Since, I just pluck them, I don't trust them anymore!

Fum said...

Reminds me of when I shaved a chunk off my one brow by accident not so long ago 0_0
I don't think yours look too bad though.

Hope you got your money back.
