Raindrops on Roses & Whiskers on Double Chins
Posted on March 08 2021
If there is something every single human on this planet can bond over, it's that pesky, unwanted whisker growing unapologetically from somewhere it shouldn't. It’s a beautiful thing, really...all of mankind relating to this one issue. So why is it that we feel the need to duck into the shadows of our guest bathroom at an ungodly hour, and feverishly pluck our rogue chin hair with shaking, nervous hands before the husband catches us?! (That was a hypothetical situation, of course...)
CUE THE SUPERHERO...TWEEZERMAN
Tweezerman was recommended to me in 2002 by a fellow furry friend. She swore by this brand of tweezer, but I held off purchasing one due to the higher price point, and me being a broke college student. Eventually, I saved up for my very own pair by drudging away as a hostess at Outback Steakhouse. Incredibly, almost 18 years later, I am still using that same pair of tweezers.
Specifically, I recommend the Tweezerman Full Size Slant Tweezer. Coming in at $23.00, it is a bit more expensive than your run-of-the-mill drugstore tweezers, but well-worth the purchase. Known for its precision, the Slant Tweezer features perfectly aligned, hand-filed tips that grab every hair, every time. Tweezerman also offers a FREE Sharpening and Repair Service. They will repair or sharpen any authentic pair of Tweezerman tweezers, scissors or nippers--in effect, making this the last pair of tweezers you will ever need to purchase.
BONUS TIP: Tweezerman tweezers also make a great gift or stocking stuffer because for just an additional $5.00, you can get it engraved! Moms around the world will be thanking me.
DELEGATE AN EXTRACTOR
Aside from having a fantastic pair of tweezers, my final piece of advice regarding unwanted hairs is to designate someone the be The Extractor. The Extractor is a trusted someone who knows the exact coordinates of those pesky hairs and, more importantly, knows how to properly dispose of them in the event that you’re unable to take care of it yourself. I don’t recommend tasking this to your romantic partner, as it could severely kill the magic.
And if you think this topic doesn't pertain to you, it’s most likely because the hair is in a place you can’t see, in which case, I suggest you call on a good friend to help assist in the search.
