If there’s something I’d advise to any teenage girl growing up, for god sake look after your eyebrows! Pay a professional who knows what they are doing from years of experience to shape your brows into a style bespoke to your face. I can’t even begin to tell you how important they are at transforming your face.
No one told me that eyebrows don’t generally grow back, so after 10years of plucking the poor little things into an oblivion (thin eyebrows were in) all of a sudden the fashion changes and bushy brows are hot! Cue Cleo drastically trying to grow what could only be described as the oddest looking skinny excuse of a claw brow!
The result was dreadful. I then heard of a unique treatment just coming into salons called HD brows. It claimed to be the ultimate treatment for well-groomed high definition eyebrows. The shaping procedure involves tinting, waxing, threading and plucking to transform the way you look and more importantly how you feel. HD brow stylists assess face shape and colouring before creating a bespoke brow, tailored exclusively for the client. I was convinced! I did some research and found a local salon with great recommendations, I booked in, got hooked, and almost 2 years later I religiously get my brows pampered every 4 weeks.
One eyebrow is naturally higher than the other (although so is Kylie Minogue’s!) and they are very different shapes. HD brows can disguise this but never take it away. Obviously they didn’t have a great base to work from but with patience and resistance to pluck them myself in between appointments, two years on was the best I was ever going to get them.
Clare the owner of the salon expanded into semi-permanent makeup and suggested I might benefit from the procedure to even out and fill in where I needed it. A little sceptical at getting my face tattooed I did some research and in the end though why not? I trust Clare implicitly and I honestly think this is the key. If you’re thinking of getting it done don’t just google a local salon with the best price, speak to friends, get recommendations and testimonials, and ask as many questions as you want. Everyone is going to have different scenarios with their brows but for me this procedure was perfect.
I’ve come to terms with the fact I’m never going to have beautifully perfect brows but I do believe in making the most of what you have and with the help of Clare that’s exactly what I have done. Remember girls, don’t think of your eyebrows as twins but more like sisters.
