Every woman has a special relationship with the lady that waxes her eyebrows. It is very hard to find a decent eyebrow lady so when you do find one you keep them close. I’ve had a few really good eyebrow ladies in my life but it took me years to find the one I have now.
Ms. Ling is one of my favorite people. She is always happy to see me and when I take a long time in between appointments she worries. I made the mistake of getting my eyebrows done somewhere else the last few times I had to get them done. I just needed to get them done fast and picked the closest place to my house. That was a HUGE mistake. The lady that did my eyebrows shaped my eyebrows uneven and took FOREVER to get the job done.
When I was little I never thought eyebrows would be this important to me.
When I went back to Ms Ling recently the first thing she said was “you make no appointment in long time, I was so worried about you.” I felt like I was cheating on her but didn’t tell her about my recent eyebrow experience hoping she wouldn’t notice. Since I haven’t seen her in a long time we talked about normal things like the weather, her kids, my dogs, my life issues, etc etc. She’s a great listener and always comes out with the best advice. The energy that she gives off makes you feel comfortable and able to trust her. After we chatted for a little bit, we got down to the business. She immediately knew I was having an affair. She said “your eyebrows are uneven you touch them?” I played dumb. “no I never touch them.” She said “you went somewhere else?” “yes, I did but only once before, she was not as good as you, and sucked at her job.” She wasn’t upset at all (thank god) and she said the nicest thing I have heard all week. “even though your eyebrow uneven, you still look beautiful dear, I fix it and you no touch it.” I thanked her for the compliment but explained to her that I have come to terms with the fact that my eyebrows are sisters, not twins (great line from the show Broad City). She laughed and agreed.
I recommend every woman have an eyebrow lady like Ms. Ling in there life. Not only does she shape eyebrows perfectly, she treats me like I am part of her family and listens to my problems.
Do you have a good eyebrow lady in your life? Let me know in the comments.
