Not to be sniffed at...

The nose
The nose

Nose waxing... eye watering, you're thinking...and in some respects it is, but the feeling of immac-ness when you get with that sweep of fresh air that rushes through your nasal passage following the arrival of this depilatory technique is both invigorating and ensures that no one will be turning their nose up at you...

Let me elaborate as this lesson begins in another very important place.  Brows.

My eyebrows are not the most impressive and although the good Lord didn't bless me with the bushiest of brows,  I'm pretty sure that my shaving them off completely aged 14 and then drawing them back on with black Rimmel eyeliner didn't really help matters...With that trauma 20 years in my distant past I have been cultivating my brows hard, using Revita Brow for the past year...I would thoroughly recommend Revita Brow...It is super easy to use and I started to see results within 6 weeks...

So it's October and my lovely friend Sarah Jane Grad (of Insta Glam by Sarah Jane, Dubai's very finest brow expert), is busily trimming, waxing, tinting and shaping my brows...The job done and my brows perfectly sculpted to within an inch of their lives, Sarah Jane announces "so now I'm going to wax your nose hairs" ...before I know it, my left nostril is filled with hot wax and what can only can be described as a stick is embedded in the wax up my nose...my breaths shorten (through my mouth, obv) I am beginning to panic with the unexpected assault on my little schnoz...I mean waxing your brows hurts, a Brazilian is much worse, how much will this hurt...?   SJ swerves that question and continues chatting about our plans for the upcoming festivities and I am literally speechless, (that never happens to a Welsh woman, btw) 30 seconds have passed when SJ just calmly says, "Ok, deep breath in", and with that she whips the stick out in one... I open my eyes, I uncross my fingers, I'm still alive and as I breathe out of my newly waxed left nostril the air rushes through it like a fresh spring morning... Amazing!   The right side completed just as efficiently and before I know its over...not a nose hair in sight.  And the next month, I'm straight back for more... #addictive.

Since that day last October I routinely check people's nose hairs...my brow furrowing (well, not so furrowed, thanks Dr. Keith and my friends at Allergan for inventing Botox) as I inspect nostril hair situations and passing judgment as to whether they could do with a good wax... and usually deciding, yes they could...I've since waxed Matt's, and, one day, when I have convinced him it is a good idea, I will post the video we made; of the nose hair waxing that is...

So be assured, in my opinion this is simply something you shouldn't look down your nose at, (you'll have to excuse the avalanche of puns, they are all intended) if you want to reach the next level of immac-ness...

But who nose.

So here's the thing, nose hairs are never going to be "trending", so if you are here in the Emirates I suggest you pay Sarah Jane a visit at Insta Glam... And if you are elsewhere, find a really good beautician who can help wax that hooter and let's pretend we never had this conversation...
