"Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham has received widespread criticism after openly admitting that she waxed hair off of her three-year-old daughter.
The 21-year-old, who has previously admitted to having extensive plastic surgery, recently claimed that her daughter Sophia had a "unibrow" and that subsequently the toddler needed waxing. A number of critics, including a self proclaimed cosmetologist, then blasted her for subjecting her child to an adult beauty procedure, according to The Daily Mail.
"SOOOOOooooo, this is a touchy subject the Unibrow thing,' Farrah tweeted on Saturday.
"I remember when I was little I had a unibrow, but I couldn't remember if there was an age limit, a rule!" she went on. "So here I am faced with a standout historical moment in motherhood when I can confirm to myself that my little, adorable,most cuddle-able cutie, baby girl has a Unibrow :("
Abraham claims that after seeking advice from "friends" she decided that waxing Sophia's eyebrows was the appropriate solution.
"So I told Sophia (my daughter who is a late 3 years old) of the little issue on her brow, and I showed her how I waxed mine off, so I tryed to wax her, the second a dab hit the Uni, she touch it with the towel she had in her hand," she tweeted.
"I got my tweezers and Pluck-pluck-pluck......soph was now saying ouch or anything and still was asleep, I got most of it off...The next morning I showed her and told her how well she did...She was more intrigued now to be ok with upkeeping her non-unibrow....I could tell she was proud," she added in a series of tweets.
Irate Twitter followers immediately responded to Abraham's post with some going as far as suggesting that the reality TV star is an unfit mother.
"Is this a joke? You attempted to wax your THREE YEAR OLD'S unibrow?! And then proceeded to tweeze it? Wow. Now that is parenting at its finest," one user tweeted.
"As a cosmetologist I can tell you it's not good to wax that young, tweeze? Eh, I wouldn't on my 3 year old but it's better than waxing. Her skin is still very thin at that age and could be damaging. Why not let her just be a baby girl a while longer?" another user wrote.
In October it was revealed that the single mother spent in excess of $20,000 on plastic surgery which has sparked allegations that she may be projecting her own insecurities on her daughter following the "unibrow" incident.
Abraham has been under the knife at least three times since turning 18, which includes getting a breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and most recently a chin implant, according to In Touch Magazine.
"I finally feel gorgeous! I've hated my nose since I was 13. I don't have to hate anything on my face ever again. I feel gorgeous!" Abraham told InTouch.
