The Beauty Salon Curse! Beware!

Beware of the Curse of the Beauty Salon! At anytime this week it could happen to you! Was it the fault of the Super Moon? Maybe March Madness? But if you go to a beauty salon be forewarned there is a curse among us this week!

It was just this morning I  read Feeling Beachie’s post about her OPI gel manicure gone wrong and how it had depleted the strength of her nails.  I felt bad for her over worked nails but at the same time the thought of a manicure seemed like the perfect pick me up!

After I finished a morning of errands, I drove by the local nail salon, and I heard it whispering my name…I couldn’t resist the temptation! I parked the car and dropped in hoping they would have time for an appointment.

The manicurist took me to her  station and worked her magic on my dry hands. I admired, the sparkle, the pretty edges, and my hands looked perfect. I also felt impulsive, my eyebrows had been neglected, and needed a little love.

“Do you have time for an eyebrow waxing?”

“Of course!”

And with that her co-worker ushered me into the backroom.

I knew my eyebrows needed shaping. But I didn’t realize that much shaping! I felt her work on the first eyebrow placing the hot wax on the bottom, pulling, and then  I felt the hot wax go all the way across the top of my eyebrow. I thought that’s strange….

Once she completed, she ushered me  out of the room, I attempted to glance at a mirror, but was quickly led to the cash. I paid my bill walked out to the car to discover most of my eyebrows had vanished!

I looked at the mirror, then away from the mirror, and then looked again! I felt horror tingle down my spine,  I gawked at myself, “Sweet Potato Pie! I have been de-browed! My face is naked!”

I will only warn you once to Beware of the Beauty Salon Curse! You could fall into the hands of a Beauty School Drop-out! Wear your lucky amulets and charms, refrain from the waxing table, and may you make it out unscathed!

First Beachie!  Now me! Has anyone else suffered from the curse of the beauty salon?

  1. Oh my God! As soon as I read, “go across my eye brow” I said to myself, “oh,no”. Then when I read that they ushered you out without handing you a mirror to check out the wax job I knew I was right. You must be freaking! How long does it even take for a brow to grow back? I am so sorry. I hope my post didn’t bring you bad luck 🙂 I was planning on scheduling a keratin and a pedi for this weekend, but now I am thinking maybe I should hold off…

    1. I imagine it will take a couple of weeks! I had to go the drug store and purchase brow make -up! I’m going to look like a kookie lady with make-up on her barely there brows :O I think your safe with the pedi! But were a mask and cover your eyes when they do the keratin treatment. I wish you a safe journey through the beauty salon! Maybe take Alex for extra protection…:)

  2. I am so sorry, but I’m not laughing at you…I’m laughing with you.

    I was going to get a pre-vacation mani-pedi tomorrow, but now I’m wondering if I might lose an appendage.

    1. Feel free to laugh away! Enjoy your pampering! Just double check to make sure all of their tools have been sterlized. You wouldn’t want a case of bad fungusitis. I think it’s called fungi- something or other….

  3. Remember Vanilla Ice? I kind of tried copying his eyebrow shaved lines. I felt pretty stupid.
    Just make sure that if you paint your eyebrows on, you don’t do it too high, that way you won’t get mistaken for a clown. (just kidding)

  4. OMG! Robbed of yer eyebrows! You can look like the crazy lady on the corner and paint them in some weird color ’til they grow back – or not.

    My sister-in-law plucked her brows so much as a teen that she has none left and actually had to get some tattooed on. She comes very close to looking like the bag lady on the corner. 🙂

    1. Hahaha! I think I saw that lady on my cruise! She had foxy red and it coordinated with her outfit!

      Ouch! I couldn’t imagine getting them tattooed! Please, let my eyebrows grow back! Please!

  5. Ahhhh!!!! How horrible! You HAVE to post a pic!!! I don’t know how I’ve been so lucky I’ve never had this happen to me even though I’ve had my brows done at some pretty sketch places before!

  6. I just read Hilary’s post referring to yours. Oh darling, it’s not the curse of the salon, it’s the curse of the incompetent and deceitful waxing person. My mishap happened years ago, and though I had forgotten it, the feeling of being used is still very much fresh once I did. I hope you got over yours 🙂
