Eyebrows are super important which is why I have a few post coming up later in the week all about them. I personally don’t enjoy doing my own eyebrows, I find it now only to be boring but a little risky and I would much rather let someone that does them day in, day out take care of them.
Finding someone you can trust can be a little difficult so it’s worth asking friends and family for recommendation but I don’t think higher price means more skill. You will also need to decide on what you want as not everywhere offers waxing, threading and tinting.
I always get my eyebrows either waxed or threaded as I find tweezing far more time consuming and unnecessarily painful. I personally don’t have a huge preference and would recommend either although I find threading more painful. They both remove even thick hair fairly efficiently although threading can be done more often and lots of people think it offers a more defined shape whereas many believe waxing lasts a little longer.
I personally would only get tweezing done in the salon if it is right at the end to tidy up any that the Wax or Threading missed. I also always request that they trim my brows and I really find that this helps to keep them neat.
I feel like eyebrow tinting still remains somewhat of a brow secret so if you haven’t tried it you simply must! Even through I have very dark eyebrows I find it really helps define the brows and picks up on hairs you would otherwise not have been able to see.
Before agreeing to getting your eyebrows done it’s worth discussing what they are going to do and what you personally would like. For example I always simply ask for them to be tidied, left fairly thick, tinted and trimmed. It can be a little daunting but once you find someone you trust you’ll have the best brows.
So where to go? In London I would recommend Nails & Brows (review here), Browhaus (review here) and also quite like the Benefit Brow Bars (review here) which are available nationwide. I’ve had some great local salons do my eyebrows too but asking for recommendations from friends is the best way to go about this I think.
Later in the week I will be sharing my top DIY brow tips and my favourite eyebrow products.
