My girlfriend Marilee and I visited a salon in suburban Minneapolis, where technician Reeta expertly wielded her cotton string:
She actually holds part of the string in her teeth, and the twisted thread makes a "zip zip zip" sound as it removes the hair. I've got neatly tended eyebrows and my face is now smooth as a baby's bottom!
If you live in a major metropolitan area, you may want to check out this procedure. It costs about the same (or less) than waxing, and it's super quick. And if you're in the Twin Cities, you can make an appointment with Reeta or get more information by calling New Look Salon at 763-571-1702.
