Brow Beauty

Yesterday I had to go see one of my clients and drop off some magazines to her. She does a few things like hair and make-up for photo shoots, but her specialty and concentration is on eyebrows. When I talked to her the other day she said that when I came to see her, that we should do my brows, and of course I said okay. She had previously explained to me how she does it, I told her I was reluctant about getting my brows done because the few times I have had mine waxed, the place in the middle, between my eyes always breaks out due to the wax being too hot. It happened my Jr. year after prom - and I mean the day after! I felt like I was a character from Star Wars, ha!

But . . . she explained to me how she does her brows. She doesn't wax, she only tweezes. She also measured my actual eye, this gives her an idea of how full or long my brows should be. I have never had this type of eyebrow shaping experience in my life, so not only did I get my brows cleaned up, but I got an education as well. I have never had a lot of eyebrows and have always wished I had fuller ones that could be shaped. She said we will get them that way, so I am excited!

Speaking of brows, there are some celebs out there who have such beautiful eyebrows! I think it's something I tend to over look sometimes when I see pictures of them, but if you really look at these celebs brows, you will notice just how nice they are! I hope mine end up looking like some of these one day!

WOW!!! I need a name! I have never in my life gotten mine done either - have always been too worried something awful would happen. I would like to do this before my wedding and if you recommend, please pass her info along! :)

All great examples! I hope you get yours the exact way you want them!

I could not agree with you more! I love well shaped, fuller brows. They totally frame the face and add so much drama. These ladies are completely gorge and their brows just make them even more so!

Eyebrow waxing is a must for me. My hair is naturally curly, and I don't know if the hair genes have anything to do with the eyebrow genes or what [ha!], but they are CURLY as well. It's hideous. They go every which way possible if they aren't flat out trimmed down to my forehead. I have always gone uptown [our town has only one red light] and got my eyebrows waxed from the Vietnamese lady that owns the nail shop. However she moved recently, and some new Vietnamese people have taken over. The first visit I made to her, she flat out told me.."gosh, you eyebrows are curly girl. We got to fix." I'm definitely jealous of the posted pictures, their eyebrows look great! But rather than mine breaking out in the center, they break out on the outside edges. I hate it. I may just have to bring this new way of eyebrow shaping to her attention :) [sorry for such a long comment!] Have a great week!

Hi! Just found your blog today, and you have a really cute place here! I'm in the wedding business too (a director for a local B&B), so I thought we might have some things in common. I too, fight w/ my brows. They just don't obey, and since I tweeze my own, they're never even or perfect. I think I need one of those "educations" you talked about... I think they have potential, but I butcher them :-( Anyway, nice to meet you! ~Kristin from Windy Poplars

Great post, especially with Ms Mendes first sure to catch my eye! I only have mine tweezed as well, after years of waxing and seeing my full brows diminishing. Brows and hair do tend to go a little crazier in the heat so noticing I am due a little sooner, looking forward to seeing my girl today!
