Wooooo!!! I survived the first full week of school, solar eclipse and all! It was amazing, and I am so thankful to be a part of this school and the district! It already feels like home! I wanted to make sure my look was ready to go for a new year. Though there are many things I like to do to get ready, I have 3 beauty musts that are essential for my back to school confidence!
1. Eyebrow and facial wax
I have a pretty good eyebrow shape, but some of my hairs do not want to cooperate! I have gotten cheap waxes during the poor college kid days, and they were never enough! This year, I upped the ante and went to the iBrow Studio in Edmond. Yes, it is a bit more costly, but the lady there gives a thorough shaping for half an hour to ensure perfection! I also had her wax my upper lip. Embarrassing, but necessary. I loved the final result!
This one seems like a big duh, but I absolutely have to get a fresh trim for the school year! After being in Florida and rushing back for PD, I was less than proactive about scheduling my hair appointment, and Tiffany was booked up. I hate to cheat on my hairdresser, but I did it this one time. I went over to Premier Beauty Bar and had Paige do my hair! Because if I have to cheat on my wonderful hairdresser, I’m going to cheat with the salon that does the Thunder Girls! 😉 Go big or go home!! Paige was amazing, my hair looked great, and we talked about God! I call that a win, and I will return to Tiffany at the end of September! 😊
Last but not least, one of my favorite pleasures in life, the mani/pedi! I go to La Fleur at Quail Springs Mall! They always do a great job, it’s convenient if you also need to shop, and you get great deluxe options and FREE WINE!! Larry is awesome and does great work! Go book with him!! I got the La Fleur pedicure, which is a step up from the regular one. I also upgraded on the mani! The massage, wax, and scrubs are definitely worth it, especially for back to school!! I use the gel so it stays on longer, and I always make my accent nail match my toes! Just a personal preference!
Those are my big 3 for back to school beauty! What do y’all have to do every year? Or for non-teachers/students, what did you do during your school days? Let me know! And have a fabulous school year!!
