Hair On, Hair Off



We women have it rough. We are constantly battling with our hair; dying it, waxing it, straightening it - you know the drill. It grows in places we don't want it and doesn't grow in other areas where we need it (hello eyebrows). It's never the right color and always too straight or too curly or too frizzy.

In the span of two weeks I will have done the following... Try to keep up if you can!

1. Removed and am currently attempting to add hair to my brows. Yes, that's right. In one appointment, I got my brows waxed and plucked and then I spent a pretty penny on a growth serum that is supposed grow in the spots where I overplucked. (Honestly, I have not over plucked...I plucked ONCE in college and nothing ever grew back). The serum I am using, LiBrow, is supposed to be amazing with a full money back guarantee. It's only been a week so not sure I see anything yet but I have two more weeks to go.

2. Removed body hair via sugaring. No need to go into details here but I do have to ask all you ladies...do you wax or sugar? And if you sugar...do you think it's more painful than waxing? 'Cause I sure do and I think I might be the only person that says so. I just don't understand how basic lemonade ingredients can turn into something so horribly painful!

someecards.com - Sugar. Water. Lemon Juice. Mixed with ice = yummy lemonade! Mixed into a paste & ripped off your body = worst. pain. ever.

3. Added hair to my lashes. As I mentioned yesterday, I finally took advantage of my group deal purchase from Oct. I went into Blink Lash Boutique yesterday and here are the before and after pics...

Sorry...I didn't do anything to hide my under eye circles. Hope they don't scare you!

The process was super easy. I even took a little nap! It's only been a day but I love them so far. I wasn't allowed to wear eye make up so I didn't do anything to my eyes. Sorry if I have traumatized you in the pictures above. I was hoping you could just look at the lash part. Oh and don't laugh at my brows...remember I am in the middle of brow bootcamp right now! I know they need help!

4. Added hair to my head. I caved...I lasted only 4 months sans hair extensions. I wanted to save some money and give my hair a break. I did and now it's time to go back to long, thick hair. Yes, I will have to add more time to each blow dry and use up more conditioner but it's totally worth it. If you are ever in San Diego or even if you are in So Cal...you must go see Autumn Houston at Autumn Houston The Salon for your hair needs. She is the best at color, extensions and does amazing blow outs. And she is adorable. You will love her. I promise.

Here are my pics from last time...I go in next Wed and cannot wait!



Ok so to recap, I plucked, waxed, serumed, sugared, and extended x2 - all in two weeks. And I get to do all again in a few weeks because none of this is permament. Lucky me!

What hair processes do you put yourself through? Would you do any of the above or do you like staying au natural?

    1. I think it's just all painful! You are supposed to get lash touch ups every 2-4 weeks to fill in any that have fallen off. I am rough on my eyes, so we'll see!

  2. I've never tried sugaring, but I've heard about it and it does sound painful! Waxing used to hurt too but at this point it just doesn't bother me anymore. I LOVE your eyelash extensions! You're making me want to get some of my own! And your extensions look great too! I don't put mine in often enough!

  3. Oh please please let me know if that brow stuff works. I over-plucked 15 years ago and they never grew back. I hate my brows. I would love to know if this stuff works!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! That is the best part of hair extensions - instant long hair and then eventually when you take them out, your hair is long too! I just get a small amount and it's perfect!

  12. What is sugaring!? Why don't I know this, do I live under a rock? Your new lashes are gorgeous! I have way too much hair on my head so I sort of have the opposite problem. :)

  14. Haha so true what we women go through! Your lash extensions look so so good - my real lashes are so short and straight I cannot live without extensions now! I've been using revitalash on my brows to try to get them to grow more but haven't really seen a difference. I'd love to hear if that librow works for you! xx
