Seriously?! Look at those lashes. They are curled to perfection.
It would take me fifteen minutes with a lash curler and like eight coats of mascara to get those, and, y’all, I just don’t give myself the time and I don’t want to put in the effort. Ya know?!
So when Waxing the City reached out and asked if I wanted to do a collab, I was like, “Does this include a lash lift?” And she was like, “Of course.” And I was sold instantly.
It also helps that Anne, the owner of the Midtown Omaha location, is super inclusive and is all about body positivity. I can get down with a company that cares about sending out a positive message. Everyone made me feel really welcome and while I didn't got for any really intimate, I can tell these women would make you feel completely comfortable and valuable and worthy of the services.
I chose to get a lash lift because I have gotten one before and I loved it. If you don’t know what it is, I can try to explain it as best as I can. Simply, it’s a perm for your eyelashes. I am almost positive they use perm solution, because that’s what it smells like when you’re getting it done.
I like them because my lashes are really long, but they stick out straight rather than curl up. And they are so thick, they don’t really stay curled when I use an eyelash curler. So a lash lift gives them a really nice natural curl that I don’t need to worry about doing maintenance on. Because my lashes are so stick straight and thick, (check the before pictures) the lift will only last for a few weeks, but I’ve heard they last for like four to six weeks.
Waxing the City, in Midtown, made the process so enjoyable. Anne was super delightful. She had a new employee in the room during my appointment and I actually really enjoyed that because she spent time explaining things and going over their process with her so I also got to learn about their process too.
While I was there, she asked if I wanted my eyebrows done and I laughed because I am so terrible about getting my eyebrows waxed. I only get them done when I get my hair done and I’m a broke joke so I don’t get my hair done very often anymore. It was honestly such a treat and I’m so happy she suggested it because she gave them such a nice shape. You will see in the after photos, just how curled they got and how nice my brows look now.
And lastly, I left with a few face masks to treat my already dry skin. Y’all this dry air is no joke. I put lotion on at night and wake up all dried out in the morning. I really need to get better about taking care of my face and getting into a skin routine. Maybe that will be one of my goals for 2020??? (Someone hold me accountable for this! Send me all the lotions, potions, and serums!)
