Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

A first for me.

I now have the kit. Do you have one?


During a routine eyebrow and lip wax my girl started plucking my neck and chin. I said, “wow, I thought I had those under control.” She replied, “you didn’t think I’d let you out of here with those, did you?” My gosh, I thought, how many were there?!

While I knew I was growing random hairs on my neck and chin (you know that saying about menopause and losing hair where you want it and finding it where you don’t?) I thought I had a pretty good maintenance system going. I sat in my front bedroom window with the good light, magnifying makeup mirror and my tweezers, hoping my neighbors weren’t looking out their front windows and wondering what the heck I was doing.

She said, “Keep tweezers in your car, it’s really the best place. You know like when you’re stopped at a light and you can check.”  I had heard that tip before (although not at a traffic light!) but I didn’t realize I was at “that stage.”

Apparently I am. I went to the drug store and got myself a compact magnifying mirror and a pair of tweezers. I keep them in the glove box of my car. Then I bought new shoes, because new shoes always make you feel better, right?

Do you have the kit? Or a sure-fire way of not having a rogue chin hair sneak up on you? I’d love to hear about it.
