Today I had my face fiddled by a professional. I only have it done about four times a year, but it is AWESOME and I love the result.
Brows, I’m talking about.
A decent set of brows can make a big difference to one’s face. We bang on about the power of our “hairy gateways” a bit here at CC. You can read about Carolyn’s glorious thicker brow discovery here and my insider guide to wow brows. But seriously, it is such a relatively cheap and easy way for a mini facial makeover.
I don’t know how often you’ve really considered the risks you’re taking letting someone, who may or may not be qualified, smear hot wax around in the sensitive skin near your eyes and then tear it off. And as with any industry there’s plenty of dodge-tacular types out there who will happily yank your face with little concern for consequence.
So I’m sharing a bit of wisdom. Find yourself a brow professional. You may not be aware but there are people who specialise specifically in brow shaping. I recommend you go out there and get yourself one and if they are good, hang on to them.
And share their names around. People (well, it’s mainly women isn’t it!) who build businesses that specialise in these kind of niche services deserve our support. Garn.
Who do you trust your brows to? Let’s give them the glory they deserve!
I was amazed the difference it makes having your eyebrows shaped. I now go approx every 3 weeks to the local beauty school and have an eyebrow shape and tint and also an eye lash tint for $15nzd. Well worth the money for an hour of pampering me time.
Oh hell yeah! I never used to think I could pull of a bold brow – but how wrong I was. Now, I’m totally obsessed with their shape and filling them in. It makes such a difference.
I live in Adelaide and I trust my brows to Millie Herd, Brow Queen and Makeup Artist Extraordinaire (http://millieherd.com.au/).
I get mine done a few times a year and groom them myself in between.
Recommend HoneyTusk Eyebrow Studio in Darling Street, Rozelle. Marli got my eyebrows to their current Liz Taylor shape a few years ago. They wax and pluck and their Lash Lift is legendary! Best thing ever.
If you prefer threading, like me, you need Get Threaded. I won’t go anywhere else. I get mine done at Top Ryde.
The pow of the brow!
I go to the Loft in West End (Brisbane) – always fantastic.
