After chemo 9 years ago, (I’m a breast cancer survivor), and just the natural aging process, my eyebrows have all but disappeared. For my 60th birthday in February, I promised myself the gift of eyebrows…Tuesday, I had them done!
A few years ago I saw Ruth Swissa featured on local TV, I Googled her, gave them a call and booked an appointment.
As it got closer to the time I needed to leave, I got a little bit anxious. Like the next person, I don’t like pain. I was thinking I should have got someone to drive me, then I could have had a vodka for Dutch courage lol.
I got there early as I knew I was going to have to sign my life away plus, I wanted plenty of time for the numbing cream to kick in.
I felt comfortable as soon as I got there. Linda the receptionist, despite being busy on the phones was friendly and helpful, as she had been when I first called. She applied the numbing cream and I sat for a while.
Then Ruth came out to get me to start the process…
The first thing she did was ask me what I wanted. My thoughts were that I didn’t want to go too dark, she agreed.
She then drew in the shape of my how my eyebrows are going to look.
