Do you pluck your own eyebrows and maintain your own fanjo?

I do, always have, but sick of looking for stray hairs every day.

Is it worth having them done professionally?

Ditto with fanjo, never had a wax. Should I?

eyebrow maint - paid for

hoolagirl Fri 16-Feb-07 13:15:04

Yes to both.
Waxing too ouch for me.

I was thinking the same about my eyebrows this morning. Can't afford to get them waxed all the time though. And they need to grow quite a bit to be long enough to be waxed. Yuk in-between re groth.

Its so boring doing them every day. And yesterday I was trying and trying to get one pesky hair. It was annoying!!

Eyebrows - waxed once a onth
Fanjo - self maintenance whenever

Either I am low maintenance or have low standards....

i wax my eyebrows myself

but tend to use a razor down there, wish i could pluck up the courage to go for a wax though!

You don't have low standards, its all personal preference.

i have had my eyebrows waxed and it was fine apart from when they did the space between my eyebrow and hairline on my temple - that hurt. however i find it easier to do it at home and not have to make a time slot to have it done.

i like a bald fanjo - somehow and for no reason that has any erm reasoning i think its cleaner! also done at home

(Blu, so pleased to hear you had a good time! Have posted on your thread)

BettySpaghetti Fri 16-Feb-07 13:20:32

no, I get a man in to do it for me

twinsetandpearls Fri 16-Feb-07 13:20:37

eyebrows waxed monthly and I deal with upkeep with my trusty tweezermans.

Deal with fanjo myself

MamaG Fri 16-Feb-07 13:21:53

eyebrows - never been plucked/waxed/threaded or ANYTHING. Iactually posted a pic of htem on here a few weeks ago for opinions

fanjo - do it myself, like a bald fanjo myself

TrinityRhino Fri 16-Feb-07 13:22:03

dh does my fanjo, I used to regularly and would like to again get my eyebrow, underarms and full legs waxed professionally

OrmIrian Fri 16-Feb-07 13:22:06

Eyebrows - me with tweezers.
Fanjo - DH

brimfull Fri 16-Feb-07 13:23:20

lol at maintain your fanjo

mine maintains itself
eyebrows I do

cupcakesgalore Fri 16-Feb-07 13:24:39

eyebrows - me (when bothered)
fanjop - too wimpish for wax - used to but can't bear the pain when preggers. Can anyone recommend an electric razor for that area - can't use creams cos too sensitive skin and normal razor lethal!

foxinsocks Fri 16-Feb-07 13:25:05

omg at all your dhs maintaining your fanjos

are they tidying with scissors/razors? at the thought of ever letting my dh near my fanjo with a razor

Songbird Fri 16-Feb-07 13:25:31

MamaG, well, if you go to your mum's wedding with your never-plucked Dennis Healy eyebrows, I'd say it doesn't matter what dress you wear!

clumsymum Fri 16-Feb-07 13:29:11

I do my eyebrows myself, If you do them every couple of days (or whenever you see a stray hair) it only takes a couple of seconds and never needs the major job.

DH currently trims round my Fanjo, but I'm trying to get up the courage to have a major waxing done, and no-way could I do that myself.

quokka Fri 16-Feb-07 13:33:20

eyebrows myself
fanjo - get done professionally, I can't believe how many of you do it yourself? I have sensitive skin so can't use creams or a razor.

sunnywong Fri 16-Feb-07 13:34:05

no, no Immac not Scissors

quokka Fri 16-Feb-07 13:34:14

I had a brazilian done for Valintines day
