The Perfect Gift For Your Brow Girl

The Perfect Gift For Your Brow Girl

Since tipping isn't customary in Europe, I never tip people who do work for me! Instead I give them gifts that are expensive and/or handmade by children (mine, usually)! The trick is to give them the gift ahead of time so they feel indebted to me and often will perform an extra service at no additional cost.

So the other week a few days before my weekly brow appointment (and a few days after my last weekly brow appointment) I popped into the salon to hand my brow girl a small gift. What was it? Well, I had some old Greek drachma (coins!) from my last jaunt there, before the economy went poof!, and I just thought they were too exotic looking to just toss away.

My brow girl must’ve agreed. You should’ve heard the way she asked “what on Earth are these?” I suggested she turn them into a fun cocktail bracelet.

Ciao, bisou xx!
