Finally faced my fears…

Posted on March 4, 2019 by Categories: Blog

I have wanted my eyebrows done for so long but fear has always stopped me. Most of the women in my family have had it done by Luisa and have always pushed me to face my fears but I just felt like my nerves wouldn’t allow it.

I wasn’t necessarily worried about the pain as such but was so anxious that I wouldn’t explain exactly how I wanted them. I’ve pencilled them in for years and quite honestly I knew that I didn’t use the right colour pencil nor the correct shape for my eyes but I was so used to doing them that way that I was frightened of the change.

The game changer for me was when I recently started working for Luisa. The first two weeks I saw so many women come into the clinic and leave with amazing eyebrows, and I was jealous!! The fears of not knowing how I should have my brows completely went as I saw how much time went into it. Luisa was spending  so much time with each client discussing their needs and wants and I could see that the clients were leaving so happy with the finished results.

So I put on my big girl pants and booked an appointment!!

Dont get me wrong I was still nervous on the day but I sat with Luisa for probably 30 minutes discussing what I liked, I showed her pictures of some eyebrows that I liked the look of and from that Luisa then spent time measuring my brows and drawing on the shape. Once we both agreed on the final shape and design I finally was looking forward to seeing the finished result. 

I felt a little apprehensive about what the pain would be like but for me the worst bit was getting them plucked at the beginning!

Once Luisa had finished and passed me the mirror I could have sat and cried. I couldn’t believe how good they looked and how much they changed the way my eyes looked. I could not be happier with the end result and am so glad that I finally plucked up the courage to get them done.

My only regret is that I didn’t get them done sooner!!
