Eyelash Perm

Thanks everyone for your comments. The haircut turned out great but I didn’t take any pictures yet. The reasons I put up with a three hour drive was that my hairstylist is conveniently located in my parent’s hometown. A visit was long overdue and so I got to mix business with pleasure.

We got there late on Friday night and the appointment was early Saturday morning. No lie-in for me but three hours later I came out with a whole new hairdo, waxed eyebrows and tinted and permed eyelashes. I didn’t even know you could get a perm for your eyelashes. Being naturally blonde my eyebrows and lashes are hard to detect. That is the reason why I have them dyed and if I haven’t got the time for that I use Mascara, without which I never leave the house. Back to the tiny perm. As I said I had no clue you could have a perm and it turned out beautifully. My eyelashes make my eyes look much bigger now. As for the actual haircut I had about 4 inches cut off and I got a fringe and layers. I also had it dyed blond and dark blond streaks. The hubby loved it. My Dad – well not so much.

It is funny what women do put up with when it comes to their beauty regime. It always reminds me of Seinfeld, who said:
“I know I will never be able to understand how a woman can take boiling hot wax, pour it on her upper thigh and rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid
of a spider.”

Sometimes I don't even think about the pain anymore. Maybe it is just me but I sometimes feel I am spending way too much time waxing and plucking and ripping out every little hair on my body when some men still run around as if their closest relative was a bear. Anyone else thinks it this weird sometimes?

Back to the hair and the requested proof. Pictures are soon to come. I don’t really have the time to blog right now. I do however check all of your blogs for my daily fix. We had a friend visiting from Prague who stayed with us and we were out last night. Tonight I am going to pack our suitcase before we are heading off to Ireland on Wednesday straight after work. I can’t wait. If I get the time I will post updates from our trip.

Can't wait to see pictures! I do have to say though that I do think it's strange how much time women spend primping... I'm lazy so I don't really do the makeup thing (unless I'm all dolled up) and I get haircuts that I can no-fuss and let air dry and they still look OK.

Have fun with your friend and have a great time in Ireland!!!

This is her hubby. None of my closest relatives are running around like a bear, but i still love it when my wife looks naturally. Can´t stand it if wifes looks liked painted clowns.

Have fun on the trip & with your guests! Can't wait to see the new hair cut. I got my eyebrows threaded this past weekend at the mall, it was great and didn't hurt at all.

I have never heard of an eyelash perm either! How long is that supposed to last?

I hope you have a great, safe trip. Take some photos to share with all of us! :)

What? Eyelash perm? Huh? Wow...that's crazy! I mean, you're not crazy for doing it, but it's crazy that they even thought of that!!!

I am so excited to see your new hair! I had my hair highlighted this weekend too, and I love it!


Oh, and also, I'm not sure if you know the saying about mullets, but I wouldn't use "business" and "haircut" in the same sentence. ;)

Haha...yeah I had to google this Mags but I am sure you are referring to "Business in the front, party in the back". I will post pictures when I am back from Dublin. Don't know if I get to post while I am there but I will try.

That eyelash perm thing was a bit weird. I don't know who came up with it but it sure is crazy. I was a bit sceptical at first. Chemicals + eyes= not a good combination but the outcome was quite good.

Oooh! Cool I didn't know you could perm eyelashes either! I never even curl mine- although I have decided very recently that I NEED TO.

Also- Yes. I get waxes semi-regularly and my husband seems to have NO trouble whatsoever telling me when I am a bit.. umm "bushy" however if I were ever to suggest that my wax-lady could take a go at his BACK- he looks at me like I am NUTS and says "BUT THAT WOULD BE SOO PAINFUL!!"

Um yeah. Just proves I am tougher than him : )

Jen this is exactly what I mean. Men are pussies :) LMAO

...you can get your eyelashes permed? That's so wild. I've never heard of that.

ooohh eyelash perm! I have them once in a while and they make the eyes look nicer. I'm sure you look prettier! :)
