Bleaching, Curling, and Tinting


oh the possibilities in beauty are endless...i'm sure most people don't associate ANY of the above words with facial hair but all three are services offered by salons or aestheticians for the purpose of beautification.

BLEACHING

this method is often used for the hair found on one's upper lip. i myself have a mini 'stache which only requires a few random hairs to be pulled every so often. however, if you are (unfortunately) lucky enough to have more than that, bleaching may be an option.

the nice things about bleaching are that it is quick, fast, cheap and virtually painless. the bad thing about bleaching is that you can still see the hair (it's just blonde) and if you have dark skin this may look even worse. another con is that this may lighten your skin a bit.

overall it is a good method that anyone can do. the products are found at your nearest Target/Walmart/CVS.

CURLING

this is a "permanent" procedure that can be done to eyelashes. it involves visiting a salon to have the procedure done. once done, the procedure can last 2-3 months, depending on how fast your eyelashes grow. your eyelashes are in a constant state of growth and will grow in straight which would necessitate the procedure to be redone. 

as with all procedures done around the eyes, it is potentially dangerous.

TINTING

this is a great option for those who prefer the natural look. tinting is available for eyelashes as well as eyebrows. it is an easy alternative for those who hate having to apply makeup everyday, especially those with naturally blonde or red hair (often facial hair is much lighter with those pigments).

tinting is a quick procedure and can be found in at most salons and aestheticians offices. it involves using a semi-permanent color which will fade in approximately 6-8 weeks.

tinting is something that can also be done from home but ONLY for eyebrows. i would NOT recommend doing this on your own for eyelashes. most retailers sell eyebrow tinting kits which are easy to use and not too expensive.
