European Wax Center To The Rescue!

Ok ladies. So, I know not all our faces are perfect. Usually a little eyebrow waxing or plucking is needed to clean up our faces, yes?

I've had my eyebrows waxed since I was about 13 years old. I can thank my aunt for taking me, I had a serious unibrow. I don't even flinch when I have them done now.

Enter a little TMI. I had changed birth control a couple years ago, I suddenly noticed that my upper lip hair started to get a little darker, and chin hair was getting a little longer. I am way, way to young for that to start happening! Anywho, I had it waxed and got off that birth control. Then, against my better judgement I got back on it. I stopped it again recently, but I noticed some hair on my face that I just didn't like.

Now, sometimes when I can't make it in to have my eyebrows waxed and upper lip waxed I'll throw a little Nair on my face and temporarily take care of it myself.

This past weekend I had this bright idea I would take care of some additional hair on my face. With Nair. I should be fine, right?

I wanted to remove hair along my jaw line. I naturally have very dark hair, as dark as you can get without it being black. So once I wiped the Nair off my face, the hair was gone... yes. BUT you could see a HUGE and I mean HUGE color difference between my jaw bone, hairline/sideburns and my cheeks. My husband even noticed!

It was horrible. I had to run a couple errands and I was so embarrassed. Even more so because I had my hair pulled back into a pony tail.

I am so so thankful for the European Wax Center (many thanks for being open on Sundays - life saver!) I quickly scheduled an appointment before we had to go to a Superbowl party. I went ahead and scheduled for a full face, because I just needed them to fix my face! My waxer was Christina. Oh my god she was amazing and she didn't make me feel like a goof. She assured me the hair I was so paranoid about was just peach fuzz. (why wasn't she sitting on my shoulder when I had the grand idea to Nair it off?) She fixed my face, reshaped my eyebrows for me (I was tired of the shape I had before) and I went along my merry way. So so thankful!

I've always thought about waxing my face, but I was always advised against it by family and friends. I love it so far. I feel like makeup goes on much smoother and my face looks and feels so much cleaner!

I don't know if I will continue to wax my entire face, it kind of comes at a hefty $50 something bucks with the tip, but we will see. 

Have you ever had your full face waxed? What was your experience?
