Woman's Eyebrow Lamination Goes Horribly Wrong
We've all gone to the beauty salon and emerged with something we didn't plan for, be that lash extensions, a spray tan or a pedicure to go with our mani. When you get the ball rolling on your pamper sesh, there's seemingly no end in sight.
But spare a thought for one woman, whose routine salon appointment ended in her walking out with the worst brows of her life.
Melissa Ryan, 21, from Orpington, Kent, only visited her local salon for some lip fillers when she went in on 9th March, but insisted she was "pressured" into getting brow lamination afterwards by the salon owner and a member of staff who "wasn't fully qualified."
The treatment sees the eyebrows permed using a chemical solution to reshape the brow.
However, the result was far from what Melissa had been promised, and the woman was left with what she describes as the "world's sh*ttest eyebrows".
After the ordeal, Melissa took to social media to share her experience, writing: "I had my lips done today, they were fine I couldn't fault [the salon owner] on that.
"Then whilst having my lips done I was offered to have my eyebrows laminated and tinted, I felt a bit put on the spot as you do when people try to up sell, but asked if this treatment would suit me and both [the salon owner] and her colleague agreed I'd look great, so I agreed to have it.
"My eyebrows were completely unsatisfactory and nothing like the photos that are advertised on social media."
Melissa: continued: "I was left looking like I complete fool. I probably could've done a better job myself blindfolded.
"I don't like to publish my confidence issues to other people but I literally came home and cried, this has made me feel even worse about myself and my appearance.
"I was allowed to leave the shop with my eyebrows in the worst state possible, people in public were staring at me and laughing at me, it was so embarrassing!"
The salon who did Melissa's brows insist they told her the treatment would be carried out by someone in training, and ensured her the staining would wash off after 24 hours of drying.
Melissa was offered a refund.
