eyebrows :/

Recommended Posts

Guest terra

Can anyone tell my how to shape my eyebrows (without shaving, they just take over more face that way, on me at least, i've had them shaved off at so many parties they almost touch my hairline O.O)

plucking or *gulp* waxing them?

i dunno what to do other than start from the bottom :)

i did bleach and dye and one eyebrow blue once, it didn't last long :?

any advice would be a godsend!

thank you :)

I've never had a problem with my brows being waxed. It's the tweezing that's painful if it isn't done right. Still it takes less than 15 minutes to complete.

start by waxing and maintain by plucking with some really good tweezers.

haha i intend on keeping them Dee Jay, there is jus too much i can do with eyebrows this long (from middle outwards... very outwards lol. not bushy lol)

the reason i suppose i used to get rid of them at any given chance (for instance the party where people are like "woo gonna shave off some eyebrows!!" and when they didn't i'd be like "i wanted to see some eyesbrow loss!!" and shave mine off lol) was so i could get people (usually female cos they had eyeliner) to draw them on hehe. not to mention they were more skilled and usually drew more feminine eyebrows.

i see now about waxing first, that makes sense :) but what to do on shape? i'm intriqued :) lol any thoughts?

and has the word "eyebrows" lost its meaning to anyone else? *dizzy face* O.o

Greetings,

Waxing it the quickest and easiest way to get your brows down and then us tweezers to maintain them. It you're having problems with the shaping of your brows there are numerous websites that have excellent articles on how to shape your brows.

As for tweezing the hair on your leg, use an epilator which basically rips the hair out from the roots like tweezing but is much faster. Now, some people find them painful to use but I happen to be a masochist, so what's a little pain???

Peace, love, and contentment,

Isabelle

I got mine done professionally, only cost me £7 which isn't much and it meant I didn't make any mistakes. After that it was just a case of maintaining them myself with tweezers. After about 6 months they need touching up by a pro again (I'm getting them redone on sunday :P) but it's just so much easier and so worth the cost of getting them done properly. Plus they'll look way better :)

I tend to shave the top part above the eyebrow and then to pluck the bottom hairs to thin out the whole eyebrow.

I don't mind pucking and once pulled out every hair from the back of both hands up to the wrist. Unfortunately this is not permanent and I now shave them every 2 or 3 days as I do my legs.

How many times would I have to pluck a hair before it decided not to bother to grow again?

What about nasal hair? I have always plucked these. What do other do please?

Thanks and best wishes,

Sarahw

I dunno. I just go and see this sweet little oriental lady for my eyebrows. I can't understand a word she says. She spends about a half hour waxing, plucking and fussing. And then charges me $10. I always tip her real good...

      ROFL -- almost how one of my grand kids handled mine.  Would I still wear glasses and get them holiday presents?  
    • SugarMagnolia
      My wife's family has been visiting for a few weeks and we've recently been at the Northern California coast for the last few days. I let my wife's brother know that I was trans two days ago and he was very supportive. He also asked if I would tell his kids, my niece and nephew (11 and 13) so that no one would have to keep any secrets.   I talked to my niece when we were out for a walk and she was fine with it, even a little happy since I think she felt special to have someone share a secret with her, and we have good connection with each other.

      Later, in the house, with my wife's sister, her brother and my niece, I told my nephew.

      Me: blah blah blah, so it's important that I let you know that I'm trans
      Nephew:  Really?
      Me: Yes...it's something I've always known...blah blah blah
      Nephew: (thinking for a few seconds)
                       OK (gets back on his device to look at stuff)
      We started chatting among ourselves again until a minute or two later...
        Nephew: I can't believe this is happening! How did I not know about this?
      (silence)
      Me: What? Nephew: They're going to make new seasons of the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon! This is the best day of my life!   It kind of put things in perspective for me. 😂 Our transitions are important to us, but there are more important things in a galaxy far, far away!

      My description probably doesn't do it justice but it seriously made me laugh out loud for quite a while!

      Welcome Natalie.  You are certainly not alone.  We are blessed today to be able to be open and share with others who understand and are living a similar reality. Glad you've joined us.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Julie i'm glad you've joined us here.  I was 63 when i went full time so i know how great it feels to know who i am regardless of how i had to present.  Today i can't see myself going back to pretending.  i'm simply enjoying living my life as myself. Let us know how it goes.  The support i found here and from other trans friends helped me a great deal(and still does).   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Jani
      Yes you're correct.  My electrologist has said you have to catch them at the right time.  Which is why I have a regular weekly appointment.   At first it seemed like everything was growing back but eventually the time on the table paid off as the hairs got finer and then were banished.   
        I've joked that its like B D S M without the B!      Hang in there.  No one promised this was easy!

      Oly, i reread the poem you posted earlier.  I know things may seem impossible at this point but that is only temporary.  The fact that someone saw a scar may well be an opportunity to ask to get some help from a medical professional who can help you deal with life's difficulties.  You don't have to be specific about the why's to a family member.   I was very self destructive for years but that has passed and life is generally really good.  I got professional help and also spent time here seeing how others were dealing with similar problems. You might want to post an introduction in that forum.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Julie I'm glad you're on your journey and have joined us.  Many of us here started later in life.     This is good!     Jani

      That's one reason why this forum exists.  You are among friends and can be yourself here.   Jani

      Dakota I would speak with the pharmacy manager or head pharmacist the next time you are in the store, whether or not you have a script to be picked up.  She obviously breached the level of confidence and privacy you are owed.     Jani
    • VickySGV
      The truth that they need to know is that you did it in reaction to a stressful set of situations that you are discussing with competent medical personnel who are helping you to get out of the stress, and trying to help keep you safe.  You will tell them more of the story when the real root of the problem is better known, and when your medical team thinks you are ready.   If they go snooping further, shut up and get away from them.

      Take care of yourself. Other than lots of water like others have already said. If I am hot and sweating cold or ice water can really make me sick. Anymore I pretty much drink room temperature water except in restaurants with food. good luck with the meds. 
    • Rachael
      Sorry to hear you had a bad experience.  When I picked up my first prescription only the spiro made it, the doctor sent the other one and I went back in a few minutes. The pharmacist said oh they found the other one let’s see what you got, she pulls it out of the bag and looked at it then me and in a quiet voice leaned across the counter said this is, this is estrogen is that what you were expecting I replied yes. I thought she handeled it well.  Hope it gets better for you. 
    • ChickenLittle
      My partner manages a bunch of pharmacies in CA and I know if one of his pharmacists did that he'd want to know and be sure to talk to them about how to talk with trans patients (hint: it's with the same respect for privacy you give all your patients). So if you are upset enough to want to write a note to the store, I think that would be totally appropriate. 
    • OlyVersion1
      One of my family members saw where I cut myself, and I don’t really know how to explain to them why I did it, because I am not out to them yet. What can I say to them?
    • VickySGV
      This is mild compared to what could have gone on thankfully. It could be a training issue too.  The "on lable" use of Spiro is more common.  She now belongs to the 16% of people who know they have met a Trans person. She needs to be aware of her awesome new status.You aer understandably miffed however.
