as a woman of Italian-American descent, my facial hair grows dark. and quick. gross, I know. but that's the way my cannoli crumbles. I get my lip and eyebrows waxed every two weeks to prevent looking like dominic the donkey. I did a six month series of laser hair removoal and nada. nothing honey. hair grew back in two months. this past week in nyc, I came across a beauty epilation that may change my life forever: threading. threading is an ancient method of hair removal which originated in India. artists use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and so on, plucking the hair at the follicle level. it hurts but dayum girl, it looks good. and lasts. which is most important. I'm sold. for now.
