A YOUNG woman was left with her eyebrows scabbing over after getting them laminated went sour.
Priscilla Zhou urged people to “always do your research” before having chemicals lathered on your face as she regrets naively jumping into a supposed beauty bargain.
“I’ve never been a fan of my eyebrows, and so I thought, ‘why not? Let’s go get brow lamination for $55’,” she started.
“Yes, you heard that right – $55.
“And I thought to myself, this is either gonna be the best deal I’ve ever scored or I’m gonna come out looking real f****d up.”
Priscilla recorded herself getting the lamination done and said once the perming chemicals went on was “where things started to go very south”.
