The Power of the Brow  

I am sure that you’re pretty happy with your eyebrows. This furry or sometimes sparse region above our eyes can seem like an entity on its own – sometimes up sometimes down. In terms of outward appearance, eyebrows frame the face, and they set the tone of our feelings of being alert, surprised, or annoyed.  The frame helps us to totally pay attention to what’s inside.  So here is where we want to end up, brows are nicely shaped, our skin smooth, cool, and clear

Brow Shaping, Tinting, & Redirection 

Behind the scenes of an eyebrow reset, there is waxing, tweezing, threading, tinting, lamination etc. It can get a bit overwhelming so here are some of the technical bits:

Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using wax and then removing with a covering and pulling out the hair from the follicle. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for three to six weeks (although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle).

Tweezing of course is a process by which you can pluck, grasp, or pull hairs with tweezers. The plus side is the convenience of being able to do this yourself. The downside is you have to squint from one eye to see what you’re doing, which is not easy. 

Threading is a method of hair removal originating in India and Central Asia. Threading is a preferred method if you are contraindicative to waxing. Please keep in mind that it is virtually impossible to “pull hair out” without pulling the hair outwhich will be uncomfortable, no matter the method. 

Brow Tinting is a service that utilizes a semi-permanent hair dye specially designed to be used on lashes and brows. Brow tinting is great for covering “light or “blondish” hairs creating depth and the definition that we all need especially as we get to a certain stage in life. 

Last but not least, Lamination is a new service that converts unruly or thinning brows by smooth out multidirectional hairs while also lifting the hair in a more vertical direction for a lifted eye effect. We create a full, slicked-up brow with a high-shine finish. This is a straight perm for your eyebrows. I love the lifted more full effect created with this service. You can expect cleansing, application of softening solution (which breaks down bonds in each hair, allowing them to be moved into a new shape), cleansing, fixation solution which reform the bonds into their new shape, cleansing and finished conditioning sealant replenish moisture after the chemical treatment process. At this point, you can add on shaping or tint to finish your perfect look. 

So, you have decided to tame the brow and what should you expect? Services start at $15 

  1. You have reserved a time slot for your brow service, a shaping, tint, and/or lamination (see below), arrived, checked in, and are now in the building clean and cleared for service. Click here to book an appointment. Click here to read about self-booking.
  2. Safety and satisfaction protocols are observed. You and the technician will review skin history to determine any contraindications and discuss your desired outcome and any areas of special concern for you. 

Brow Shaping Review With spoolie, brow pencil, and other tools in hand: 

 1st we mark our territory with a pencil to the lineup with the outer edge of your nose with the pointed end toward the brow and mark to establish the beginningKeeping the edge of your nose as your pivot point, move to the pupil and mark to establish the height of the arch. Continuing the point beside the nose, pivot out to the outer edge of the eye to establish the end of the tail and mark. The next step is simple. Just connect the dots! Then draw in the shape of the brows, clean off the area where unwanted hair resides, and remove by way of wax or tweezing the unwanted hairs.

Pamper yourself pretty with a brow service and wardrobe, it’s fun! Most of the time my brows are pretty good until my eyeshadow seems lumpy and bumpy because of all the “fuzz” that has popped up virtually unnoticed. But, once they are gone – wow what a difference1 My confidence goes way up. I am always so glad that I took the time to take care of business.  So yes our brows frame our faces! Our eyes are the windows of the soul because it is a sincere tool of communication. Nice brows say that – one, you care enough to care for them, and two you are groomed.

Now here are a few fun facts: Most of us have over 200 hairs per brow. Furthermore, lashes and brows regularly fall out, lasting only a few months and the arches serve to divert liquids like sweat and rain to the sides of the face.

These can be helpful hints for great results when considering brow services!

  • Allow 2  6 weeks of recovery for skin treated with any topical prescription medication, microdermabrasion, laser, or chemical skin peels.
  • Allow 24 hours before or after rapid exfoliating and tanning beds, or sunbathing.  
  • Prudent skincare is important following any waxing treatment. Use only antiseptic or antibacterial solutions after waxing to ensure the best results.
  • Allow 10-14 days of hair growth for best results prior to any brow service.

Lots of love, 

Violet
