After pining after perfect eyebrows, I took the plunge and booked in for some HD Brows! For those of you that don’t know, HD Brows is a seven-step eyebrow shaping treatment that focuses on design. It involves a combination of techniques, including tinting, waxing and threading, using specialist HD Brows products.
Up until recently my eyebrow maintenance regime had been minimal…at best! I first (and only time!) got my eyebrows waxed when I was in my teens and since then I’ve been plucking to keep a ‘decent’ shape. I’ve always had quite dark/full eyebrows, so I had never seen the need to bother with an eyebrow pencil/powder – that was until I went to get my make up done at Bobbi Brown back in December. My make up artist assured me that by using a little powder on my eyebrows it would really help to define them and make a big difference to their shape….I haven’t looked back!!
I’ve been thinking about getting HD Brows for a while, but the more time I spent looking at other peoples perfect brows on here, the mores I lusted after them and decided to book an appointment.
Upon arriving I sat down with the therapist to go through an initial consultation. This involved assessing my existing eyebrow growth and asking numerous questions on what I wanted my HD brows to look like (how dark, how thick, what shape….) – who knew there was so much to think about!
The treatment involved the following steps:
2. Measurements (This was where she noted the areas that would need more growth – i.e above/below the brow line)
3. Trimming4. Waxing
7. Shaping (using a small brush to push the hair in the desired direction)
In the picture at the top, I’ve posted a photo where you can see the before (top) and after results. I’m under strict instructions that no plucking (WHAT SO EVER!! :D) should take place until my next appointment (5 weeks time). This will allow the hair to grow in the areas that she’s identified (from the measurements), to give me an even fuller look. I also have to add ‘brushing my eyebrows’ into my morning make up routine, to encourage them to grown in the direction required.
You can’t see the shape as well in the top photo, so I’ve also included one below. If it’s something that you’re thinking about doing though, I’d definitely say go for it!!!
