How far would you go to look like a WAG?

New hotel gives away 'scouse-brow' kit

Published on February 27th 2012.

How far would you go to look like a WAG?

THE new Travelodge down at The Strand is offering its customers a free 'Scouse Brow' kit,

For the uninitiated, this is not like a Glasgow kiss or a thick ear.

No, the hairy eyebrow, made famous by make-up artist and hair stylist Jodie Lundstram in the TV programme Desperate Scousewives, is a new trend, apparently sweeping the nation.

Fans of the scouse brow include the high-brow - the Duchess of Cambridge and Keira Knightley (you can bet they don’t call it that) – and the... well, Alex Curran and Abby Clancy.

The free kit is available at reception at the new Liverpool Central Strand Travelodge hotel. Basically a stencil that you stick over your own eyebrows and a pencil to colour it in.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman, said: "We have seen a surge in room bookings for our Liverpool based hotels since the popular E4 reality programme Desperate Scousewives started. The programme based around fierce fashion and the famous WAG lifestyle has certainly helped showcase how truly glamorous the UK's sixth most visited city really is.”

“Interestingly”, it says here, four out of the 30 staff members at the new budget hotel have the same names as the Beatles.

Except only the first names. And one is not called Ringo.

Manager Paul Jones said: "On the first day of my training programme with my new team, I made an unbelievable discovery. Alongside myself, I had team members called: John, Richard and George.

"I was totally flabbergasted that within my team we had namesakes from Liverpool's most famous boy group, The Beatles."

This idea seems to be spreading. My friend Mr Clack, who as well as key cutting has a heel bar and shoe repairs, is now offering free anal bleaching to every customer who needs a new sole. 2 for the price of one he calls it. He does it while you wait. Over the counter. He only uses the thick bleach from Home Bargains and for those with sensitive skin, you can opt for the nylon scouring pad.

In fact one of his innovations is that after the bleaching he also offers a colouring in service for special events or celebrations. He's doing a special offer on Green for St Patrick's day. Of course they were all bright red on Valentine's day. It's safe, he only uses food coloring or Rolf 'Arris Magic Markers.

Pop in if you are interested and have a look at the photo display on his wall.

If you just want the scousebrow though, he does a quick cherry blossom one in black or light tan for the gingers.

Thats a fine pair she's got isn't it? I saw a girl behind the cigarette counter in Asda (Green Lane Old Swan) with a set of whoppers!

I bet she was an expert in bush trimming too

Yes, from the description, I imagine some time is given to..erm, intimate topiary. I asked if she had a small Golden Virginia, but I was misheard.

I imagine in parts of Old Swan they still have to put up with any old shag
