First thing I know I need to take care of is my eyebrows. They can get a little out of hand when left unattended... When I lived in California I would go to a fantastic lady to get my eyebrows waxed. I didn't trust anyone else to touch my eyebrows, not even myself! When I moved to NY I tried to find a new lady to wax my eyebrows and had no luck. Everyone I went to tried to shape them and in doing so made them too thin. I like them to be cleaned up and kept natural. I then tried to tweeze them myself but that wasn't working out to well. Then a friend introduced me to this phenomenon:

Threading. It's just like is sounds, the removal of hair with thread. I'm not sure how they twist it and make it precise enough to pull out the hairs they want. If I was doing it on someone I would probably accidentally give them a bald spot in their eyebrows. It's also a little strange that part of the thread they hold in their mouth... but you get used to it. This particular threading salon does a great job of just cleaning up my eyebrows and not taking to much off. After my first visit I was sold and I've been going ever since. My thought as of now is to get my brows threaded right before leaving for California. It'll be a little over a week before the wedding and I figure any stragglers I can clean up and tweeze before the wedding.
