As if having braces as a 20-something was bad enough...
I now have a braces mustache (or a bractache, as I like to call it).
No joke. My Vietnamese waxer confirmed. She said...because of my braces...the sun hits my lip first -- causing a darker upper lip --- and giving my face a furry look. Every time I go in to get the eyebrows waxed she says, "Upper lip too?! Lot of hair. Lot of hair."
Well, it's confirmed....not hair. Just a braces-tache. Steve likes to make me feel better and say it's the reflection. He knows the truth.
Chalk it up to my awesome life in braces. For those of you with braces, save $10...and skip the lip wax. It won't do a thing. Instead, invest in concealer.
