No More Waxing For Me – Threading Only!

This past Saturday I had my first threading experience at Great Looks 4 Less in Mercer Mall, Princeton, NJ. I have to admit, I was a bit terrified going into it. I’m a huge baby when it comes to getting my eyebrows waxed and had no idea what to expect. Everyone I spoke to about it said it was pain free, plus it lasts forever.

I met the woman who was going to do my eyebrow threading and stressed to her that I was a huge baby and scared. She told me not to worry that it wouldn’t hurt at all. Guess what? It didn’t! In fact it tickled a bit and felt more like a slight brushing against my skin. No hot wax burning or the ripping off and feeling like my skin may or may not come off. This was totally pain free.

I was completely fascinated by the whole process and the woman gave me a mirror so I could watch what she was doing. Basically she had a spool of thread and twisted it around and it would grab each hair and pull it out from the root (almost like plucking). But she goes super fast. I was impressed! It’s an art form.

No more eyebrow waxing for me. From now on it’s threading.

Wedding Industry Networking Event 7/27/10

Tonight the hubs and I headed over to the Marriott Lafayette Yard in Trenton, NJ to meet up with our good pal Michelle Lawlor, owner of Lucky 17 Photography to check out the NJ Wedding Industry Networking Event. I had been invited by my good friend Erik Kent, owner of NJWedding.com. The go to source for any Jersey Girl bride-to-be.

I chatted a bit with Erik about the event. Here’s what he had to say.

I even ran into Denise Taylor, owner of Great Looks 4 Less. They are located in Mercer Mall, right off Route 1 in Lawrenceville, NJ. Great Looks 4 Less specializes in ethnic hair and offers a wide selection of services and products. Stop by and check them out.

I also met the women of Anywhere Childcare. They specialize in special event childcare & babysitting services. They provide children with a kids reception while the parents are at the “adult” reception. How cool is that? Check out my brief interview with the ladies.

We truly had a great time networking with all the industry professionals tonight.
