Christine from My Style Pill and Keiko from Keiko Lynn have both recently done posts (here and here) about the magical Anjali at Shobha. I have not had anyone other than myself touch my eyebrows since I was probably 14 or 15. Since then I have been plucking away at them and failing to make myself happy with their appearance. I have very thick and very dark eyebrows that I simply cannot tame on my own.
After reading Christine and Keiko's posts about their eyebrow threading experience with Anjali I decided I should give it a try. I have known about threading for a while but never really understood how it worked. I am also always scared to let someone do something dramatic to my face if I do not have 100% confidence that they will do an amazing job (I feel the same way about my hair which is why I have only gotten my haircut from Maria in my hometown for the past 7 years), but Christine and Keiko's rave reviews made me give in.
I had my appointment Wednesday night and it went so well. Anjali is the sweetest woman and seriously an eyebrow guru. We started the appointment by talking about what I want my brows to look like and what they should look like. Just as I had suspected I had been plucking them too far in and making my brows look too sharp. We really don't need to draw any extra attention to my brows which was all I was doing with my plucking, oops. After the initial discussion she got to work trimming and threading away. I have to admit that it did hurt a little but certainly nothing that I couldn't handle, especially after my big tattoo experience.
Once she was done I was shocked at how great my brows looked. She achieved something I never could have on my own. Of course when I got home Kevin couldn't really tell that there was a difference, tisk tisk boys are so unobservant. Here is a little photo comparison:
I think it is pretty obvious that there is a difference but maybe that is because I stare at my face everyday. Can you tell a difference?
Now begins "project eyebrows," yipee! I will be going back to see Anjali about once a month over the next few months as we work on lengthening my brows and creating a more dramatic arch. I am so thrilled that I will have perfect eyebrows for my wedding day:)
Anyone who is considering getting their eyebrows threaded should definitely go to Anjali, you won't regret it!
