Not any more! This past Saturday, I went to get my hair cut and I also decided to get my eyebrows waxed. Now, we've had the eyebrow conversation before and everyone knows I hardly have any. However, there are still these little annoying stray hairs that grow and need to be removed. Cassie, my wonderful hairdresser, waxed them for me and then I decided to have her do my lip and chin. Being a natural brunette, I have more facial hair than is considered desirable by our American standards. Cassie complied with my wishes and waxed my lip and chin. Then, I asked her to just do my jaws too. She made sure I was serious and again, she complied. Well, let me tell you . . . . that HURTS!!!!! After the pain stopped, my face felt so great to the touch. It was the softest skin I had ever felt. I was so excited! I was feminine again! My 5 o'clock shadow was gone! No one would mistake me for Mr. French anymore!
That was 4 days ago. . . . . now, I'm wondering if I didn't make a mistake. My face is not so soft as on that first day. It's also a little bumpy - I've had few breakouts. It even seems oilier than before. Worst of all, I can't help but wonder if my facial hair might come back with a vengeance and grow like this - uuuggh! What if it does? I guess I will have to have it waxed on a constant basis, or maybe start shaving. I did see a newscast once about women actually shaving their whole faces to exfoliate and renew their skin . . . .
Once again, I'm craving cuteness. I just hope I didn't go too far this time. I'll keep you posted.
