**New_to_PGH**

I got my eyebrows done last night!  It was $14.  The girl did a good job, though they're smaller than I've ever had them!  I think it might go well with my facial features though.

    Oh good! I decided this morning that I simply MUST go tonight - can't stand the stray hairs anymore!  I figure as long as I don't end up with the pittsburhg "tadpole" brows (you know what shape I mean :P), then there's not much they can do to screw them up

    When you say smallest, do you mean skinniest or did they "shorten" the overall length? "cuz I've been thinking my bows shouldn't be so long, but I'm afraid to start plucking the tail of them myself

    Dicer where did you go?  I'd rather be threaded and $14 is cheaper than where I go for wax!

    I'll answer for her - Miracle Eyebrows in the mall at Robinson. There's also a location at Ross Park, where I'll be hitting up tongiht (by the Mrs Fields)

    Sorry, I'm scattered today.  I guess I mean thin, from top to bottom.  I usually have a fuller brow because I'm lazy.  They're all neat and trim with straight lines. 

    The girl at Robinson was definitely Indian, which made me feel better because I believe threading is an Indian thing. 

    I should have taken before and after shots!

    I'm too embarrased by my shaggy brows to take a before shot, but I'll try to take one afterwards :)

    /butting in

    I've never plucked, waxed, threaded, even touched my eyebrows before.  For my wedding, Clare had to darken them up so they would show up in pictures.

    What does threading feel like?

    Jenn, it's like plucking, just more hairs at a time (and the thread makes a cool "riiiiip" sound as it goes across your brow, lol).

    Awesome, I'm glad you went and liked it!  That's a great price too :)

    Jenn, "tadpole brows" is the perfect description of that phenomenon, LOL!

    Jaime, your brows have never screamed "Tadpole" at me, lol.

    But they are somehow rampant in Pittsburgh -I've never seen so many of them anywhere else! 

    Just in case anyone is in doubt, this is what I'm referring to:

    I am undecided on mine lol...they don't look like they're "swimming" downward, but they are thicker near the bridge of my nose.  I just went with whatever the beautician did a long time ago.  It's good to know they don't scream it though!
