Motherplucker: the pain of losing your tweezers.

Motherplucker: the pain of losing your tweezers.

Losing your tweezers falls into two categories: the "I found it in my gown pocket!" category and the "never to be seen again" category. Both begin with calmly looking in the usual places, frantically searching the unusual places and then interrogating everyone in the house. The first ends in relief when you find your tweezers in your gown pocket / knicker drawer / handbag. The second ends in years of stumbling from one inadequate tweezer to another in an attempt to recapture the magic. 

Twenty years ago or so I lost my beloved tweezers. We had good times (finding out there is skin under my moustache) and we had bad times (plucking my eyebrows a centimetre further back). Good or bad teenage decisions, she got the job done with great efficiency.

I have learnt two things from my tweezer history: (i) buy a back-up as soon as you realise you have a good plucker and (ii) buy from a brand that is easily available and likely to be around for the foreseeable future. 

My weapon of choice is the Slant Tweezerman. It is precise and has great grabbing action to remove that hair that doesn't want to leave your brow (or chin, or chest). I keep a Classic Slant Tweezerman on my dresser, another in my travel bag and a Mini Slant Tweezerman in my makeup bag. It is an expensive tweezer (Slant £18 - £22, Mini Slant £12 - £14)  but you are buying real quality and some peace of mind.
