Eyelashes Permed

Monday, November 24, 2008

It was so amusing to see the beauty center teeming with men when I went there last Saturday afternoon. Like me, maybe they’re there to have their eyelashes permed, too! I wanted to laugh out loud. Apparently, those men (straight ones, at that!) were there to have a facial – to have their zits pierced to nonexistence, the white, black and multicolored heads professionally popped out and their faces lasered, vacuumed and massaged with all sorts of masks and creams to remove dead skin and let younger skin emerge. I even heard two fortyish guys discussing microdermabrasion like their lives depended on it.

And I thought only us girls are vain! Whatever happened to men just washing their faces with soap and water? Nowadays, we’re not only the ones who have kikay kits. An increasing number of men do, too. I guess having kikay kits is also one area where there must be gender equality. If us girls can be kikay, why can’t men be kikay, too? There really is nothing wrong with men wanting to have their lashes permed, is there? :)

i think two guys in the office have kikay kits... :) lorenz, once had a facial cleaning, and even had a wart removed through laser-something... perhaps the ladies in those men's lives influenced them to be vain. :)

In my fave facial centre in the Philippines, there are more men availing of extensive services. Peeling, etc. It won't be surprising to see them with kikay kits but have no idea if any of my guy friends would want to have lashes perming. Heehee.
