Monday should be okay… just keep an eye on them. You may have to pluck a few before the wedding 🙂

I’ll probably get mine done on Monday or so but that’s because I break out every time with little white pimples for the first few days.

That should be good.  I have really sensitive skin, and my eyebrows only stay a little pink (no bumps or anything) for about a day, and they are perfect for about a week before I can start seeing little hairs again.

I feel like a week before the wedding should be fine!  I am planning on doing the same thing for mine!

I’m definintely getting mine done… but first I have to find someone to do them here- the girl that’s been doing mine for years is in Atlanta!

I think you should be just fine. I get mine waxed all the time. My mom is a cosmetologist, so she does it. Redness usually just lasts through the day for me. Sometimes I get tiny bumps, but usually not. And if I do, they are definitely gone within a couple of days!

Depending on how fast your hair grows back (mine grows uber fast), it can last a week to several weeks. It’ll be quite awhile before you see the full growth back. If you see any hairs popping up that are out of place, you can just get ’em with the tweezers.

I will probably get mine done a week before.  Sometimes my skin reacts to the wax but if it does it usually goes away in a few days.

 

I would get your eyebrows done now, then go back in for a touch up.  That way if you have a horrible reaction to the wax.

You could also try out threading.  I used to wax all the time, but I found that threading ended up looking more precise and I had less redness afterwards.  Not sure where you are, but in LA threaders are popping up everywhere & there are at least a few in each mall (while day spas do them as well)–usually under $10 for the service.

I get mine waxed every couple of weeks, in part because I hate plucking. I know that my skin reacts very well to it, so I personally feel comfortable doing my wedding brow wax a couple of days before. The Monday before should be fine for you, usually you don’t see any hairs appearing for at least a week. Just take a good look the morning of to make sure a hair or two hasn’t appeared that needs plucking.

To avoid the bumps and stuff associated with waxing, why not just acclimate to plucking?  I’ve been plucking my giant dark bushy Italian near-unibrow since I was 11 and have absolutely no pain or redness when I pluck, though I remember that I did at the very first.  I do it every few days.  That’s a great way to have smooth brows without worrying about unsightly irritation…

I’m definitely getting mine done…probably the Wed. before my Sat. wedding. I usually don’t have red bumps or irritation as long as I wash my face shortly after the waxing.

i wax my eyebrows every three weeks, you can even do it on Wednesday because the redness goes away in one or two days
