Growing up in Nigeria, I saw women with different ways of managing their brows. Some let the brows grow out, some got rid of every single hair and drew a thin line. As I grew older, the art of grooming the brows became more popular, and most people used a blade. I still ask my mom to send me packets of those blades, they are little rectangular shaped metals, and extremely thin too.
On getting to the US in 2010, there was the art of waxing, threading and tweezing. Threading is something I have fallen in love with. I still shuttle between waxing and threading and I’ve done a series of research about the two, and according to Teen Vogue, all methods work just fine.
I have been able to take pictures of the two eye brow threading ladies I came across in Bloomington.

A group of researchers from the University of Texas have recently completed a study on the relationship between alcohol consumption and mortality risks. The study shows that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with reduced mortality rate among middle-aged and older adults.
