Threading and Dermaplaning: How I Keep From Looking Like a Werewolf.

Hey Y’all!

One of the big things (literally) I get questions/comments about are my eyebrows. Now that big brows are in (why wasn’t this a thing in middle school?) people are wondering how to achieve the shape and style.

First off, I am a hairy person who has no other option than to have thick brows. Trends change, and you aren’t going to be able to achieve all of them. You know when everyone had tiny eyebrows? Well, this girl definitely did not and it felt like the end of the world at that time. Like, so bad that I shaved my eyebrows pretty much completely off in 2nd grade and proceeded to fill them in with mascara to hide it from my mom. That obviously didn’t work.  It was absolutely horrible and I am #blessed that they grew back normally. With that said, you should never feel like you need to conform to any trend ever and rock whatever you want to rock because that’s cooler than conforming anyway and I wish I had realized that when I got made fun of for having caterpillars on my face as a child. Ok, end nonconformist rant and get to the good stuff.

“So, Like, What Are You?”

“So, like what are you?”

I wish I could count how many times I have been asked this question. I have come up with an arsenal of answers including:

“Hungry”

“A nice mix of Tituss Andromedon and Chrissy Teigen, with a dash of Carrie Fischer”

“A nursing student who occasionally cries in public while studying without even noticing”

None of these answers suffice and the follow up question is about my race, with which I answer “I’m mixed. White and black, but a little bit of everything else too”.
