If I didn't get my eyebrows waxed every 2 weeks or so, there's no doubt I'd look like Frida. Growing up, I was completely disinterested in makeup and hair, and I certainly had given no thought to my eyebrows. In my 7th grade class photo, I look like Groucho Marx's great great granddaughter. Perhaps it was this resemblance that prompted my mom to book me an appointment with a lady in town for my first wax. Thanks to a biweekly appointment, scheduled around tennis practice and other after-school commitments, my eyebrows remained perfectly sculpted throughout high school.
I try not to think about the money I've spent over the years, but when I do the math it's been about $40 a month for oh, about 16 years, it amounts to a year's rent when I was living with roommates in Dorchester. I'm someone who tells the hairdresser to do "whatever" would look good, I don't spend hours trying on jeans and I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn eye makeup; however, I am very particular about the state of my brows. More out of necessity than anything else.
For the past 2 years I've been going to see Natalie for my brow wax. She worked at the same place I get my haircut, and then she decided to open her own business. My brows always look immaculate when I leave- she has my complete trust. She doesn't know that I'm writing this endorsement for her new business, Unique Verve, but if anyone's looking for a great esthetician or massage therapist please check out her site. She's become a friend of mine and I'd love for her new venture to succeed!
