Who knew? (Not me)


A couple of weeks ago I noticed that my eyebrows were looking less than well groomed. Rather than go through the time and expense of a professional waxing, I took a tweezer to them and thought they were lookin' pretty good.

Little did I know...

My neighbor, who I love and who has great taste, told me that she had just returned from a visit to the "Arch Angels." The what??! Yes, the "Arch Angels." They are two women who all the ladies in the know go to to have their eyebrows done to perfection. Apparently the shape of your eyebrows can really make a huge difference in your appearance. I have to admit, my friend's eyebrows were a work of art. She opened my eyes to a whole new world.

I started noticing other people's eyebrows and now I GET IT! Sooo, for the next couple of weeks I will be growing in my overzealous pluck job, at which time I will truck my hiney over to the "Arch Angels" for a $28 eyebrow makeover.

This could change my life. (And it's sooo much cheaper than Botox.)

Oh, Oh! You have to show us all the stages in pictures.....your pluck job, when they grow in and after you have been to the Arch Angels! I have never had my eyebrows done, but mine are so thin naturally, I hardly have any. I only have to pluck 2-3 strays every once in a while. I've even considered learning how to "draw" them in like a professional to make them look fuller.

Your eyebrows are the most important part of your face. I believe that fully.

Oh, I've always heard of the "miracle workers" that do eyebrows. I would LOVE to go to somebody wonderful like that and have an eyebrow makeover. I do get mine waxed, but it's nothing special.

Please take pics! I get mine waxed at my hairstylist's and am never satisfied so I get out the tweezers and then become obsessed. I can't wait to hear how this goes!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

$28? Yowza! I think I'll stick with my $7 wax jobs, although I admit I am intrigued....you will post pics afterwards, right?

The first time I had mine professionally waxed I had to ask myself WHY I had never done that before! It was THAT noticable that I had catapillers above my eyeballs, LOL And I have blond eyebrows, go figure!

We don't have an Arch Angels here, but I do have a hairdresser that I NEED to visit for more than uh, and eyebrow job...the roots are comin' thru, Baby;) LOL

I need the angels!! Must look them up... I always think I can do it on my own but it's always a bad idea.

those arch angels sound pretty fabulous

Jaina said...

Haha, mine are in dire need of a waxing. I'm planning to try to get over to the lady who does mine when I'm up at my parents' house again in a few weeks.

I cannot stress how important it is to get your eyebrows done at a place where you've either seen their work or saw a referral. I can't tell you how many of my clients are 'fixes' from salons, nail places etc. where they just went in to a 'wax' only to have their eyebrows ruined. If you like what you see, you know you're in good hands.... best of luck with the new eyebrow look!

I'll do it for free...just grow them in and lemme at 'em. Seriously, I'm really great with eyebrows...haven't you seen my header pic???

i've been letting my brows grow out. it's such a necessary evil...looking unkempt and crazy...just to get the perfect arch. i don't have arch angels here but...i have a woman with some wicked tweezers!!

I'm a plucker obsesser- I struggle with mine also.

I just recently had this discussion with my hair dresser about how I have never waxed and how most I know do. She said I didn't need to, b/c my eyebrows have a good arch. I know one day I'm going to try out the waxing though just to see what I will look like.
Post pics after you have it done.

I wanna see pics too. I go in stages where I become obsessed with my eyebrows. I usually just tweeze my own but when I grow tired of it, I have them waxed. Of course my last wax job was a disaster so I'm a little leary of it now.

Queen Mommy said...

My eyebrows are completely overgrown as I am so bad at the up keep.

Chewbacca, ahem.

It makes a huge difference. When I have my brows done I call it a face lift!
