Waxologist to the rescue!

I have been struggling with my eyebrows lately - I got super obsessed with the idea of microblading, but that is so expensive and I don't really want to go that route. I knew I needed to just find a good, local, dependable wax artist who would put up with my crazy and also maybe help me work up the nerve to wax other regions. So I googled "best eyebrow waxer in omaha" and found Deb at Waxology.

I love places that have online forms to request an appointment, and she did (score one point for Deb), and she texted me the next day (score two points for a text and not a call). We made an appointment for Monday evening. Her menu has every single place you could ever want waxed listed, but I just told her we would start with my eyebrows and see how it goes.

I got there and found her area easily enough. It was a little weird, however, because it's not like she is in a salon - she just rents a space in this suite. So when I walked in I didn't know where to go, and I saw a few people but no one offered to help me. Maybe my bushy eyebrows scared them off. Anyway, I found her and her little space was very comfortable, It had a place for me to lay down with the paper across it, just like in a doctors office. It smelled nice in there and she had a TV on. We introduced ourselves, and I told her to just do what she needed to do to make my eyebrows pretty. She had me lay down, and while staring at my face, she asked if I wanted to have my nose hairs waxed as well. UM YES. I, for some reason, have a hairy nose (thanks Dad) and I have struggled since I was 12 with it. Without hesitation, she stuck two balls of wax up my nose and then got started on my eyebrows.

I have gotten my eyebrows waxed 12899 times in my life (I mean, I'm pretty hairy, and my eyebrows root somewhere deep in my soul) and it stings bad. But with Deb, it didn't even hurt at all. And she gave me no warning at all when she ripped the wax from my nose - but that didn't hurt either! I mean, it didn't tickle, but it did not make me cry like I thought it would.

I, of course, shared too much with Deb and immediately considered her a close friend. Which means I plan to have her wax my more southern regions. I have never been able to work up with the nerve to do this, but I think I am there. I have had several friends do it, however, and they say while it hurts like a bitch, it is worth it. So...I'm going to do it. Maybe. I will. Sometime.
