First time getting my eyebrows waxed!

Hello lovelies!

Today, as promised, I am going to talk about my first experience of getting my eyebrows waxed.  As you will know, if you have read my latest post, I was invited to a launch party for a beauty salon last Thursday. If you haven’t read that post, then you can do so here. It goes into a lot more detail explaining about the company, the treatment programmes and the event itself in general. Today I just want to talk about getting my eyebrows waxed because it was first time and something I didn’t know much about.

First thing I want to say, is that the lovely lady who did my eyebrows (Hannah) was absolutely fantastic and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. Hannah was so enthusiastic and passionate about what she does and you could tell she had a genuine love for the company and brand which was so encouraging.

As someone who knew very little about getting your eyebrows done this was quite a big deal for me.  I almost found it very daunting in a sense because I was so unprepared and didn’t know what to expect at all. I actually had the option of either getting my eyebrows waxed or threaded, but was advised to get them waxed because Hannah personally said that threading was more painful. That is obviously a personal preference and I know a few people who do prefer threading over waxing but for me, after having the details and descriptions of both methods, I decided that waxing was the better option. Even though I haven’t had the experience of threading, I am still so happy with decision to get them waxed because the pain was so bearable and I love the overall result.

After all the explanations and after I had decided which method I wanted to pursue, Hannah then just spoke about the procedure of getting your eyebrows waxed because I had never experienced this before. We decided to keep the natural shape of my eyebrows even though they are not entirely symmetrical, but as everyone always says ‘eyebrows are sisters not twins’ and to be honest I am quite happy with the natural shape of my eyebrows and thus didn’t want to change that.

The actual process used hot wax and this was just placed underneath my eyebrow and then above as well and then used strips to remove the hairs. I am honestly so happy with the results. Normally I just do my eyebrows myself and pluck them but I can 100% tell the difference now I have had them waxed. My eyebrow shape is a lot cleaner and definitely more defined. Having my eyebrows waxed has definitely accentuated my brow shape and my arch. I love the finally result and I cannot believe I didn’t get it done sooner.

I also got my eyebrows trimmed to. This is such a tiny step which often seems insignificant but makes a huge difference to the tidiness of your brows. It really just adds that finishing step and makes them seem look so much better. It also makes filling in your brows in the morning a lot easier. It now only takes me 30 seconds in the morning to fill in my brows because it just so simple and easy. Obviously, the less time it takes to fill in your eyebrows – the better!

Overall, I am so satisfied with the end result of my eyebrows. I am so, so, so happy with the overall result and they look amazing. I am so thankful to Hannah for doing such an amazing job and for thoroughly explaining the process and the pros and cons of each method. I am also thankful that I got the opportunity to test out one NKD’s treatment programmes and I can honestly say that I would highly recommend NKD. I know you are wondering whether it is painful and it really isn’t. I coped absolutely fine and it was one of the main things I was worried about. The pain really isn’t that bad at all. It is minimal. The pain is just a short, sharp one once the strip is ripped off but other than that is doesn’t hurt at all and if you are considering getting your eyebrows waxed I personally wouldn’t worry about that, if I was you. I am so glad I said yes to this opportunity, because it is something that I wouldn’t usually do at all and I was so worried at the beginning but I am happy with the outcome and love how they look! I would definitely recommend getting them done because it does make doing your makeup so much simpler.

Thank you so much for reading this post and I really hope that it has helped you in some way or gave you some advice if you are thinking about having your eyebrows waxed. Let me know if you get your eyebrows done and if so what you have done. Do you get them waxed, tinted or do you get HD brows done? Also leave me a comment letting me know what you think of the experience and if you would recommend it. I would love to know! Until next time!

Much love,

Lizzie X
