Recently, my regular waxing salon couldn't accommodate me on days I was free for eyebrow waxing service. It has been more than a month and I couldn't (and afraid) to personally maintain it by plucking. I suddenly remembered that I had a discount coupon from my Belle de Jour Power Planner at Browhaus: The Brow Salon for eyebrow shaping and color tweaking. Luckily, they have a branch at Serendra, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, where I attend an evening class weekly. I decided to give Browhaus a visit before class started last week.
Browhaus: The Brow Salon
I fell in love with their icon instantly. I find it really creative and unique. Anyway, I was not able to use my discount coupon when I got there because no staff was available for the browgraphy service. But since I was already there and my eyebrows really need some expert's attention, I availed their Classic Threading that costs Php580 (approximately $14). Their Classic Tweezing is priced the same but I personally prefer threading as it is a faster procedure and less painful.
My eyebrows BEFORE threading.
It has been more than a month since my last eyebrow waxing. Hair growth is now visible near the eyelids. I try to pluck the growing hairs whenever I can in between appointments. But there comes a point where I get scared that I might ruin the shape by plucking too much on one eyebrow and less on the other. I find it difficult to shape my own eyebrows.
My eyebrows AFTER threading.
Before the procedure, I was asked what shape I prefer. I really didn't have any idea about eyebrow shapes so I asked what would suit me best. The staff kindly explained my options and recommended a low arched eyebrows as it was the natural contour of my brows. I agreed. My only request was not to have very thin eyebrows. I actually experienced that and it definitely didn't look good on me.
This is where it all happened:
I was escorted to a huge (as I am petite) recliner for the eyebrow service. The procedure lasted approximately 10 minutes. After threading, a few hairs where plucked for a cleaner look. The brow technician asked my opinion after she did her magic on my eyebrows. Yes, I was satisfied.
Here are some advantages of eyebrow threading over waxing and plucking:
- No redness. I usually experience this after an eyebrow waxing service. Threading will not result to any redness or irritation if done correctly since no chemicals will be used.
- Faster. Threading is a quicker procedure compared to other eyebrow hair removal techniques because it can remove a clean line of hairs all at once in a stroke.
- Less painful.
- Finer hair regrowth. Continued use of eyebrow threading as the procedure to shape your brows will eventually result to finer hair strands when it regrows.
The only disadvantage I see is that Browhaus services are quite expensive. But the thing is, it is hard to gamble when it comes to facial aesthetics. I would personally like to have mine done by an expert and Browhaus is an established one in the field of eyebrow construction.
