My Persona (Sung to the tune of My Sharona)

Today in my closet, up on Harold's side of the closet I found an interesting tool called "Persona." I didn't know what it was so took the package down and realized that this little device is an eyebrow shaving/shaper thingy.

I have never had an issue with my eyebrows as they aren't exactly bushy and don't go over the appropriate lines suggested by experts everywhere. Occasionally I find a stray that is either very gray, or very long and I deal with those little rebels on a case-by-case basis.

I did, however, go to a Mary Kay party years and years ago when I was a teenager and the overeager consultant informed me that I was in desperate need of eyebrow help which made me very self conscious and it took me years to realize she was off her rocker.

I do look at the eyebrows of famous women and notice that they, the furry creatures, are perfectly coiffed, shaped, trimmed, and colored. In an effort to emulate these airbrushed women I once had my eyebrows waxed. This was a ridiculous adventure as it didn't make much difference and cost the beneficiary (a family friend) about $10-12.

Today I saw the new instrument and decided to give it a whirl. I read the instructions which seemed simple enough even for me and after I showered I grabbed it and started "shaving." This little thing was SUPER cool. I took off a few strays on both ends of the eyebrows and did a little shaping. I have to admit that there isn't that big of a difference but the tool was really cool and without any official endorsement money coming my way, I highly recommend the product.

Now you might ask what the heck was this little guy doing on Harold's side of the closet? He has major eyebrow issues. He thinks his are too bushy. They aren't, but he thinks they are and I guess that is what matters. Unfortunately this tool is really a shaper, so I would prefer if my dear husband wouldn't use it because he would look completely weird if he did.

Honey, the Persona/Personae, are now mine. If you know what is good for you, don't go looking for it/them.

You are funny... If I used one of those things there would be a major tangle problem, and right before I realized it was tangled I would have heard a loud grinding noise coming from the motor area, which would then have scared me into turning it off and then I would have found the thing permanently attached to my jungle brow.

By the way, I really did try to sing your post.

FYI: The Persona is not an electronic device. It is shaped almost like an old timey razor that men were shaved with. However, the blade is kind of like teeth on a comb and only about 1 inch long.

That is so funny. I have had eyebrow issues all of my life as well and not because there is anything wrong with them, but once in Young Women we did a makeover night and the "beauty" consultant told me that I needed major work. I have always felt like a cave woman ever since. I once tried waxing them myself and had to walk around for about a month saying "Why no I'm not surprised, why do you ask" Just kidding. But I've been there. I've been considering using one of those handy little trimmer/shaper things you see on TV.

Jeanna, You have to check out my friends recent experience with trying to wax her eyebrows it is hilarious. You can find a link to her blog on mine, her name is Jessica Bird. That was hilarious. When Adam and I were about to get married I got waxed and I couldn't face anyone when I got home because I looked so weird. Ever since then I pluck and shape myself, that personae thing sounds like something I need to look into.
