I just happened to be walking down 7th Street on my way to Target to pick up some detergent when I saw a woman having her eyebrows threaded through a big window in a shop called KSA Threading. I immediately remembered the last time I had my eyebrows threaded. It was in Dallas, Texas and she did such an amazing job that I couldn’t stop staring at myself.
I wanted that feeling again so I stepped inside as the threading lady finished up her customer. Her customer beamed at me, gushing about how amazing the lady was and how she loved coming in to get her eyebrows done. The threading lady (do they have a specific name?) motioned for me to sit down in the chair and asked if I wanted my brows arched. I told her to go ahead and do some magic.
Threading feels like little pin pricks but in about 5 minutes she was done.
She handed me a mirror and I looked at it and—
I was completely unimpressed. I can see where she cleaned my brows up but they didn’t match in size or shape. I asked her why they were different and she said that the hair on my eyebrows was lighter in some areas. When did that happen?
I shrugged, paid the $10 and left there.
