Hey guys, I can’t believe I’m posting this but my mom is convinced I’m the asshole here so I figured I’d see what you think. I know some of this sounds fake, but I have pictures to prove it if needed. Obligatory “this was within covid guidelines” and “I’m on mobile”.
Earlier today, I went with my mom to get my eyebrows cleaned up while she got a haircut. I showed the woman doing it a reference picture, and she got to work. I immediately noticed the wax was hotter than it normally was but ignored it, and I was confused that she went over the same areas twice with wax (it’s standard to only do it once) but I figured it was a new kind of was I wasn’t used to.
When she hands me the mirror, I was in shock. Not only is the shape completely wrong, but I noticed she had ripped off several layers of skin in the process. My eyelids (yes, she got wax on my literal eyelids) and surrounding area was raw and incredibly painful. I tried to make a comment about how it seemed like my skin had ripped off, but two workers said it was just sore and I would be fine. I’m not a confrontational person so I said thank you, paid, and left with my mom.
In the car I have a break down because of the pain combined with how bad they look. My mom was telling me the whole time that I was overreacting, it will grow back, the skin isn’t raw but just red, I didn’t show a good reference picture, etc... It was then I looked down and saw she had dropped a used wax strip onto my $65 Nike sweatshirt I got for Christmas that I didn’t see before. I went in to see if they could use a wax remover to get it off, but my mom was upset I was wasting the time of the workers and her time (we took my car and I drove), and that I could fix it at home.
I’m glad I went in, because even with the wax remover it would not come off. They tried so many different oils and lotions, but it didn’t work, and created a large bleach spot where they used some acetone. They eventually got the manager and she was super sweet. She refunded my eyebrow waxing (even though I didn’t ask for this, I just wanted my sweatshirt fixed) and said she would give my number to the regional manager and they would help me replace my sweatshirt. She also apologized on behalf of the woman who did my eyebrows, and said she was new and didn’t normally do eyebrows, and agreed that it was not just irritation but missing sk... keep reading on reddit ➡
I love them but i just want them to get lil thicc at the ends. sooo, that i could rock the whole look of my eyebrows on fleek.
Side note: AITA SUCKS. THEY CAN SUCK ON WHALE TITS FOR ALL I CARE. totally not from a personal encounter heh
